1/4″ TS jack for bigger speaker cables
I have a Yamaha Stagepas, and it is into it’s sixth year of operation. I am very happy with it and it serves me well. I go have a small issue though. Just the other week, I discovered that I had some 12 AWG cables and I wanted to use it as speaker cable. Now the Stagepas only accepts 1/4″ TS cable. It doesn’t use Speakon connectors. So for those who have larger diameter speaker cables, how do you solve it?
It is simple. Get this fatter 1/4″ TS plug that can take fatter speaker cable. Some people, to get around it, strip the 12 AWG speaker cable and do not crimp the housing because it cannot fit inside the barrel. With this, all should fit and it is a practical solution. I am happy with my standard 16 AWG speaker cable so the 12 AWG speaker cable will be spared…for now. But if need be, I know what to do.
