Jack Plate - Plug and Play, Mono / Stereo

$15.95
In stock

The Plug and Play eliminates the confusing switch found on most stereo cabinets. Just pick your impedance and plug in. Label is set at the common ~\frac{4}{16}~ Ohm Mono and 8 Ohm Stereo. Ready to install with a steel dish, wires, and speaker connectors. Direct replacement for many existing small jack dishes. Can be used for the following configurations:

  • 4 ohm mono
  • 8 ohm left + 8 ohm right stereo
  • 8 ohm left only mono
  • 8 ohm right only mono
  • 16 ohm mono

The Plug and Play can be used with two 8 ohm speakers, four 4 ohm speakers, or four 16 ohm speakers. Please see Specifications, Files, and Documents for all recommended wiring configurations.

Yes, two 16 ohm speaker may be used as this contains no active components. However, the markings showing each input's impedance will not match the actual impedance.

With (2) 16 ohm speakers what will the actual impedance be then? impedance

You'd have - 16 Ohm Left/8 Ohm Mono - 16 Ohm Right - 32 Ohm Mono

I just relabeled plate with a brother p-touch labeler as I setup with two 16 ohm speakers.

I believe this would be the same as running the two 8 Ohm speakers in parallel so the load the amp would see would be 4 Ohms. If this setup ran the two 8 Ohm speakers in series (I don't believe it does) Your amp would see a 16 Ohm load.

If running two 8 Ohm speakers and an amp rated for 8 Ohms, simply plug the speaker cable into the 8 Ohm left input and plug a dummy cable to the 8 Ohm right input jack. Your amp will only see an 8 Ohm load.

Again, if using a Y cable and plugging into both top jacks on the plate would essentially put the two 8 Ohm speakers in parallel, making the rating 4 Ohm. We do not suggest doing this.

I think he wants to use *both* 8-ohm speakers at the same time, while matching his 8-ohm amp output. I do, too. So again, would using a Y cable into both stereo inputs, would the amp see an 8-ohm total load and safely power *both* speakers at once?

If your amp has a speaker jack for a 4 or a 16 Ohm load, yes, this can be done. The first drawing in the "Speaker Z Examples" shows how one would wire a 2 speaker cab with 8 Ohm speakers. You and your son would be able to plug each amp into the top left and right jacks when playing together, and when you are playing b yourself, plugging into the 4 or 16 Ohm mono jack will make both speakers run in unison.

This is a helpful question. Does the 4 ohm or 16 ohm jacks work as it is strictly a "pass through" jack at that point?

The two 8 Ohm jacks are the only two that can used simultaneously on the jack plate.

Correct, but you can get two 8ohm loads from 4 16ohm speakers in stereo.

See the wiring diagrams above for reference but generally you can run in either series or parallel when wiring up speakers. It's more than likely possible but the labeling may not match.

You are not going to get an 8 ohm load out of 4 x 16 ohm speakers, only 4 (all in parallel) or 16 (2 pair in series, then that pair of pairs in parallel). Wired per the 4 x 16 ohm speakers you would get the impedance's marked on the plate.

How does it sense 4 ohm stereo or 8 ohm mono through the same jack?
Matt H.
January 18th, 2018
It does not sense anything since this is a passive circuit. The resulting ohmage is determined by the ohms of the speaker.

I have a 2X12 cabinet with different 8ohm speakers in it that I would like to be able to use separately (only one speaker), as well as together at 4ohms. Does this jack allow this? I assume the jack labeled 16ohms would basically be the 4ohm mix of the 2X 8ohm speakers?
Matt H.
May 26th, 2017
Yes, here are your options: 4 ohm mono, 8 ohm left only mono, and 8 ohm right only mono. Checkout the plug-in schematic for how these are wired and hooked up.

Is this correct? I have a revv generator 120 and an avatar 2x12 cab with two 8 ohm speakers. The amplifier has 2 4ohm outputs, 2 8 ohm outputs, and 2 16 ohm outputs. Do I connect two separate speaker cables to the 2 8 ohm outputs of my amp and plug them into the 8 ohm stereo inputs of the cab?

We can not say that this would be the case with your avatar cab if it doesn't have this plug and play jack plate on it. If it does and it is wired as shown in the speaker wiring diagram, yes, you would be able to do that.

First you will want to check to make sure that everything is wired as shown in the diagram and that two 8 Ohm speakers are being used (other Ohm ratings will give other readings) and if both of those are accurate, there could potentially be an issue with the plate and you may need to contact us to make a return.

Thanks for your reply to previous question asked on 7/23/19: Some clarification: With two 8 ohm speakers connected per the wiring diagram, plug in 4 ohm only input measures about 4 ohms; plug in 16 ohm input only about 16 ohms, plug in both 8 ohm inputs measures about 8 ohms each, all as expected. Finally plug in 8 ohm right ONLY measures about 8 ohms. Checking the wiring diagram this appears to be what should happen, as a plug the right 8 ohm input alone does not appear to result in a parallel connection of the two speakers and the left speaker will be disconnected. Can you look at the diagram an d tell me if this is correct or not? Thanks.

With two 8 Ohm speakers in a cab it would work as follows: Left input would be 4 Ohm using both speakers (Parallel wiring) or 8 Ohm when used in stereo (If two amps are being plugged into both the left and right input) When using two 8 Ohm speakers, the only mono options are 4 Ohm (top left jack) and 16 Ohm (bottom left jack) The only case in which it would work as you need would be if both speakers in your cab are 16 Ohm.

I use my Plug and Play exactly as the question poses. It has two 8 ohm EVM speakers. The short answer to your question is that using the PP's top left jack will automatically put the two speakers in parallel for a 4 ohm load. If you plug a jack into the top right jack, the PP splits the speakers, so each will run at 8 ohms independently (stereo). If you want to run one speaker at a time at 8 ohms that's not problem, but you need to have both jacks engaged to make the 'split'. So run your amp into one side (whichever you want), and put a 'dummy' (ie unconnected) plug or cable into the other stereo jack. It works great.

Using two 16 Ohm speakers with this jack (series and parallel wiring are a moot point as this jack plate does both) will result in the labels being incorrect. Looking at the backplate, it would read from left to right, top to bottom: 16 ohm left (or 8 ohms mono), 16 ohms right, and 32 ohms.

As long as the two cabs you use have a matching impedance, you can use them in stereo. It does not have to be 8ohms. It could be 2,4,6,8,16ohms, etc. You will just have to remember that the labeling on the unit will not match your actual impedance.

You can use the red and black wire and this should operate in mono at the designated ohms on the back of your speaker. You would only use the upper left handed jack.

Check out the speaker wiring diagram above. If you have four 16 ohm speakers you are wiring these in series. If you have four 4 ohm speakers then you are wiring them in parallel. You might need some extra wire depending on your configuration.

If you have an 8x10 wired in series/parallel and each speaker is 16 ohms you will have a total ohm load of 32 ohms. Looking at the backplate, it would read from left to right, top to bottom: 16 ohm left (or 8 ohms mono), 16 ohms right, and 32 ohms.

Using the stereo option you could run one 16 ohm speaker into one amp and the other speaker into another amp. With this in mind, the marking on the plug and play will not match the actual ohms.

It doesn't sound like the amp and the cab are compatible as is. You may need to change the speakers in the cab (either x2 4 Ohm speakers in series or x2 16 Ohm speakers in parallel) or replace the transformer in your amp. What amp model is in question? I may be able to provide more info with an amp make and model.

I had purchased one of these for my main Bogner 212 cab. It worked very well, so I bought two more. It seems very well-made and is a great value, even when shipping and import fees (Canada) are added.
