  • Neutrik Powercon Question

    Hey everyone, I am new to my church, I have only been there four months. When looking through the set up so I can add some monitors to the stage, I found that the only monitor they have hooked up is a small, passive monitor. I at first thought it was connected to a speakon connection, so I ordered some cables as my monitors have those. However, when I went to hook the monitors up, I found that the monitor currently in use is hooked up to a powercon connection with a banana cable on monitor end. (This isn't the same type of monitor I will be using) I have very limited knowledge on powercon, and I didn't know this was even possible. The monitor works, but I thought powercon was to carry power, not audio. I am thoroughly confused as to how this works. The only other connection other than xlr connectors for mics/instruments, is a coax looking connection. Any help in what is going on and how that works would be appreciated. Thanks!

    Can you share a couple photos?

    Sounds like speakon connectors.

      It does sound like speakon connectors, however it is not. I have speakon cables from when I toured and they do not work in the connector. Speakons have the locking tabs 180 degrees from each other, and these are not even close, maybe 20 degrees. Here's what I have.IMG_22424.jpg

          That's it! The receivers like I posted are throughout my stage at each access box. I was told that was what fed the monitors like the one already in use. That monitor is a passive monitor and has a connection and terminates at the monitor in a banana plug. Audio comes out so my assumption is it is wired funky or something.
