1.5ft Premier Series XLR Male to XLR Female 16AWG Cable (Gold Plated) [Microphone & Interconnect]
25ft Premier Series XLR Male to XLR Female 16AWG Cable (Gold Plated) [Microphone & Interconnect]
3ft 2-conductor NL4 Female to NL4 Female 12AWG Speaker Twist Connector Cable
You can rely on Monoprice as the source for your high-performance, high-quality speaker cables with NL4FC connectors!
These 2-conductor speaker connection cables are made with high-purity, 12 AWG copper wire for maximum current handling capability. They feature black and blue colored plastic NL4FC female connectors at each end, with spring-loaded lock release latches.
I'm a little dissapointed with the locking pins. The springs have been bad on one end of both of my cables. Not the same quality as Neutrik ends, but I paid a whole lot less.
Both cables carry the signal just fine, though, so I'm not complaining too much. Would definitely buy more of them again.
PROS: Fraction of the Price of other Speakon Cables
Cable quality feels solid
Passes signal well.
CONS: The springs on the locking pin are pretty weak. I ordered two of these cables and both had an issue with at least one end.
CONS: Ends are very cheap and you have to make sure they lock in. They don't immediately click in like real Neutrik plugs.
First, and foremost, a third-party product that purports to adhere to the specifications of a particular technology must adhere to those specifications, or it is useless. It would appear that the Speakon technology connectors used in these cables may be a little out-of-spec.
These connectors, while nice looking, are hit-or-miss when it comes to properly connecting to a Neutrik NL4MPR chassis-mounted connector. On many of these connectors, the locking mechanism won't click into place. Fortunately, I was able to swap ends, and, eventually, get the cables to work in my setup, so I didn't have to order something different.
When comparing this connector to both the Monoprice connector (601510), and Neutrik's own connector, it appears that there is a varying gap between the locking tab, and the barrel of the connector. There is no gap on either the Monoprice or Neutrik connector... And, I called it a 'varying gap' because, as implied, some of the connectors locked fine, but some of them didn't, and had to be swapped end-for-end, to try the other connector.
An interesting data point for this discussion is that the connectors on these cables always connect properly to the Amphenol product SP-2-MD. On all my DIY loudspeakers, I used the Neutrik NL4MPR connector, and on the other end (at the wall, or junction box), I used the Amphenol SP-2-MD This connector is analogous to Neutrik's NL2MP connector. I don't quite understand that discrepancy.
Anway, I would give these cables a 10, but for the problems that I described. I'm giving it a 5, so that, maybe, this review will be noticed, and Monoprice can get something done about it with their supplier.
PROS: heavy-duty (12awg) cables.
CONS: connectors are sometimes incompatible with Neutrik NL4MPR chassis-mounted connector
PROS: It arrived very quickly and Monoprice refunded my money rather than making me ship it back.
CONS: It did not function.
PROS: Quick delivery and good product!
PROS: Well constructed, good connectors
CONS: None so far
PROS: Nice looking, appear to be quality cable ... but
CONS: Signal from amp to speaker kept kicking out.
PROS: High quality cable. Good price.
CONS: The inside connection was loose. It was easy to fix.
I definitely will shop monoprice in the future. The quality and workmanship was excellent.
PROS: Fast prompt delivery
Extremely affordable pricing
CONS: Free delivery would be nice, however even with shipping the cost was very competitive.
