Product Details

Parts Express Speaker L-Pad Attenuator 100W Mono 3/8" Shaft 16 Ohm

L-pads adjust the relative volume of drivers connected to them by placing added resistance in series. At the same time, a counter-resistance is placed in parallel with the driver to maintain a constant impedance which allows the original crossover design to be used. L-pads are to be placed in between the amplifier and speaker, or in between the crossover and driver. This particular L-pad is rated at 100 watts RMS, is designed to be used with 16 ohm loads, features a 3/8" shaft length, and comes with mounting hardware, faceplate, and volume control knob.

Dimensions: 2.5" diameter, 1-1/8" depth.

Parts Express Speaker L-Pad Attenuator 100W Mono 3/8" Shaft 16 Ohm
Parts Express Speaker L-Pad Attenuator 100W Mono 3/8" Shaft 16 Ohm is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from SatisfactionI received the item and everything is o.k. I am satisfied.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent quality L-pad with unexpected featuresI purchased two of these L-pads to replace worn, scratchy L-pads used as treble and midrange tone controls on a classic Electro-Voice Georgian corner horn monaural speaker system.The first thing I noticed upon unboxing these L-pads is the excellent feel and build quality. The second thing I noticed was that they come with an escutcheon and knob, however I chose not to use them in favor of 260-274 Dual L-Pad Face Plate Vertical.I did not expect the anti-rotation post, which engages with a matching hole in the escutcheon. Also, the shafts are grooved and the knobs fit snugly.Performance is outstanding - absolutely noiseless electrically. The adjustment occurs in small discrete increments due to the internal motion of the wiper over the windings. Infinite adjustment is not possible however in my application this was irrelevant.

Parts Express Speaker L-Pad Attenuator 100W Mono 3/8" Shaft 16 Ohm

Would I be able to install this into a Marshal 412 100W Guitar cab? Could I run 100 tube Marshall Watts through this attenuator as a poor mans Power Break, or will it smoke my JCM 800?

Asked by: Anatra
These are really only used for mid and high frequency attenuation and cannot dissipate enough heat to last with a full range signal. a power brake or hotplate is a much better way to attenuate a tube amp.

We ordered part 260-261 3/8 16 ohm Lpad and inside the box was a 3/8 8ohm instead. If it is possible could our order on the 260-261 part please be opened and checked that it is the correct one inside the box? We order from you on a regular basis. Thanks!!

Could you please advise me as to whether this is a suitable replacement for a 14 ohm potentiometer in an Acoustic Research AR 2ax speaker crossover network? Is the potentiometer wire wound? Thanks...

Asked by: Neilbar
Yes this will work fine as a replacement for that. These are wire wound.
