Speaker L-Pad Attenuator 100W Mono 1" Shaft 8 Ohm
How many db's of attenuation will these provide? Thanks.
When used with an 8-ohm load, you should expect about 6 dB of attenuation.

What would be achieved by having identical caps of whatever value on either side of the l-pad? Would this be an attempt to control the voltage to the tweeter like a voltage divider?
That would cause it to behave like a tone control circuit.

Can I use the 'L' pads on Piezzo's without changing the finale impedance of the total box?
Yes although in order for this to work there has to be an 8 ohm resistor in parallel with the piezo tweeter.

Why these over the 15W?
I only want to lower that upper two speakers of my cabinet. I have a 100 watt amp going to my 3-way system and want to attenuate the mid and tweeter. Could I use the 15 Watt L-Pads for that?
The midrange and tweeter will get a smaller percentage of the total power so it is certainly acceptable to use a lower power l pad in that application. a 50 watt, or even 15 watt should be fine for most users.

Can these be used as quick and easy attenuators for guitar amps?
These are deisgned to be wired in line with the speaker itself, so if that is where you intend on installing it that will be fine as long as you don't exceed its rated power.

Can I use this to reduce the volume of a 2-way cab?
I have a cabinet setup that is less than ideal (from previous installers) where one cabinet is pointed directly at the main mic placement. I cannot move the mic placement, but if I can attenuate a single cabinet then I might be able to bring the mic up to usable volumes. Also there is not an individual amp dedicated to each cabinet.
Yes, you can use this as a volume control to reduce it's input and control sound levels. Interesting problem you got there...
