Product Details

Speaker L-Pad Attenuator 50W Stereo 1" Shaft 8 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 50 watts RMS, is designed to be used with two 8 ohm loads, features a 1" shaft length, and comes with mounting hardware, faceplate, and control knob.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice quality L-padBought this for a passive subwoofer project to be able to adjust the satellite speakers volume control with the high pass crossover network.Bench tested and works great! Sprayed deoxit gold on contacts in hopes of eliminating future issues.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from good purchaseI own a number of these, and have had very few problems with them. They are easy to install and solder. Only one has had a static problem; which I fixed with tuner spray cleaner. They are a good quality item and are more than reasonably priced.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great little LPadI needed a level control for a 4 ohm driver and this one, with the terminal wired in parallel, worked nicely! This unit can handle a fair amount of power, not obvious problems with it, I like it for general duty uses. It is a good idea to spray lube in it for the long use to prevent the dreaded scratchiness they all will get!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works great, solder lugs too smallPerforms its job perfectly. Sadly, the solder lugs are too small for braided wire of sufficient size to properly support 50W speakers. Had to jury-rig wire connections.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent valueI used this to control the volume level of speakers in a room away from the amplifier. It worked perfectly. It has a very nice feel when turning the control. The wiring diagram on the side of the box left quite a bit to be desired but was usable.
