Product Details

Speaker L-Pad Attenuator 100W Stereo 1" Shaft 8 Ohm

L-pads adjust the relative volume of driver(s)/speaker(s) connected to them by placing added resistance in series. At the same time, a counter-resistance is placed in parallel with the driver(s)/speaker(s) 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 driver(s)/speaker, or in between the crossover and driver(s)/speaker(s). This particular L-pad is rated at 100 watts RMS, is designed to be used with 8 ohm loads, features a 1" shaft length, and comes with mounting hardware, faceplate, and volume control knob.

Dimensions: 2-1/2" diameter, 2" depth.

What are the dimensions of this device excluding the terminals? Is it 2.5 inches which is the circular part of the L-Pad. It would be nice to have a drawing to show the dimensions.

Asked by: JimN
Yes the body of the L-pad is 2-1/2" in diameter excluding the terminals.

Can you somehow wire this up to handle 200W RMS, e.g. wiring the two "channels" in parallel or series?

Asked by: kuruption
If you wire both pots in parallel you will double their power handling.

What happens at 4 ohms?

I need to attenuate a set of 4 ohm monitor speakers to match the other sets of speakers I use for mix references. I have an amp that has A/B sets of outputs, but only one set of level controls. The 4 ohm Behringer C1s are much louder than my Yamahas (which are set to match perfectly with the Alesis M1s driven by another amp).Will the 8 ohm L-pad work with 4 ohm speakers? What will happen? I don't see any 4 ohm L-pads.
Asked by: Bushman
it sounds like your planning to use it pre any passive xo...this would demand a fairly massive wattage de-rateing of the L-pad in that application..also, that load would half the wattage rating to start..personally, i would suggest an active solution.
