    Those parts will work perfectly, just add the ward ware to month them.

    I'm guessing you typed that from your cell phone! I take it you meant "hardware to mount them." :lol:

    The 4 pole versions are superior, they are built better and have a higher current rating. Why aren't you doing both ends?
    Do the chassis connectors include the screws I'll need?

    No, you will need M3 (metric) screws, nuts and lock washers for the panel mount. Fastnel carries them in stainless steel. They are cheap and there's no minimum order.

    Ok, I will grab the 4-pole versions. Thanks for the tip. Not doing both ends because the Dreadnaught is already built with binding posts - using Speakons on the Dreadnaught side would mean drilling holes large enough to accommodate them, when the chassis already has holes drilled for the 4 binding posts. On the Dreadnaught side, I'm using bananas, which works just fine. I think the big advantage of using the Speakon connector will be on the speaker side, so I can eliminate the need for the spade.

    Thanks again Jesse, ordered the 4-pole versions - NL4FX and NL4MP, along with the SCDP gaskets from Parts Express.



    I'm thinking these are what I need for the fasteners?

    Trey,
    Do you have more of the round 4-bp/1-speakon-hole plates like in your pic above (for 1.2's)? I need a pair, but didn't see them listed on your site. Scratch'n'dent is okay as well, if available.
    Thanks,
    Craig

    An update on this thread. My Dreadnought sits on carpet and always leaned a little bit. Well, I finally got around to doing something about it by adding aluminum outriggers with stainless steel spikes. It now sits perfectly level. The cap nuts are temporary, I have stainless steel knurled knobs arriving Monday.

    So this is the thread where the idea for Speakon connectors for the SDA cable originated. I should have known Jessie was the originator. I also like the outriggers.

    I am glad you updated the thread as I had not read it.

    That going to look killer with the stainless steel knurled knobs and as usual very nice job Jesse.

    I realized I made a mistake in my OP that needs to be corrected. The socket I used is the NL4MP-UC not the BAG version.
