Temperature of Speakon Connectors when in use


Recommended Posts

Is it normal for speakon connectors to get warm when inuse at a 2.5k level.


If not Why?


It is possible for them to get warm if use at high levels for extended periods of time, especially when utilising 4/6/8 multi...


Other than this other possibly reasons for them getting heated include:

1. Loose connections inside the plug

2. Cable under-rated for the current flowing through it

3. Loose connections inside the socket


I would open them up and check the cables are tight and terminated properly (ie: the full conductor inserted into the barrel)
