Product Details

Speaker L-Pad Attenuator 50W Mono 3/8" 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 50 watts RMS, is designed to be used with 8 ohm loads, features a 3/8" shaft length, and comes with mounting hardware, faceplate, and volume control knob.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Let's me hear my amp growl!I used the L-pad to build a power attenuator for my Fender Excelsior. Allows me to hear this baby's natural overdrive without causing my ears to bleed. Highly recommended and easy to setup.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Second time I purchasedI needed a way to control the volume at remote speakers. While this is not the most elegant solution, it sure works for me. Easy install and the volume control works perfectly at the speakers.

Speaker L-Pad Attenuator 50W Mono 3/8" Shaft 8 Ohm

what are the dimensions of this item?

How many dB of attenuation does this provide? I need 8-10 dB. Thanks.

Asked by: Satya
It will allow -00db (full off) to full on (0db)An 8-10 db attenuation may be somewhere around 2 and 3 o'clock.this position is dependent on the speaker efficiency and may be inaccurate.A sound pressure level meter would be the simplest way toaccurately measure loudness in db.
