Skip the loop through, just build extension cords with a duplex box on the end. It'll work a lot better, be more flexible, and you can more easily address the voltage drop issue by using higher gauge cable. Make a 50' cable (or whatever length makes you happy) using 12ga soow - or 10ga if you want to protect against voltage drop. Put a duplex box on the end of it and then plug the speaker into one outlet and the next cord into the other.
Typically, the AC loop-through is used for something like a pair of wedges.That being said, amps and speakers draw surprisingly little current from the grid. The duty cycle of musical content is ridiculously forgiving compared to that of AC sine wave power.A good rule of thumb is to take the continuous power rating of the amp in question and divide that number by four. This will give a rough approximation of what the amp will draw from the grid at full tilt. In other words, a 1000w amp will only draw a little over 2 amps in the US and a little over 1 in Europe at full power!
It might be a bit bass ackward to put the power scheme too high up on the selection criteria list. Spend your energy determining which box best meets your need for power, sound quality, scalability, deployment method, and price. Buy the speaker that best balances those requirements and build whatever cables fit it Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
A good test is to attach a lamp at the far end of the run and turn it up. If the light dim with the beat of the music, you've got enough of a problem that you should be running heavier cable.
Whilst I also agree that the place for an AC split is outside the cabinet, i'll also say that the RCF TT22-A's have a powercon in and out, as do the TT25-A's. Heard some very good reports about them, and am currently looking at buying a pair myself. Yet to listen though.If you were here in the UK I'd suggest you make up AC leads for your speakers using 16A T-line connectors like these; http://www.directcablesystems.com/site/product_details.php?section_id=8&sub_section_id=516&category_id=55Though I've got to say I'm not very familiar with mains distribution over your side of the Atlantic so I'm not sure if they'd be of any use at all.
Most of the RCF NX, 4PRO, TT series and dB Technologies D series boxes have power-con loop through...take a look at the RCF NXL24A, and also the D12 and D15 boxes from db Technologies...great performers and coupled with subs, awesome...we have done some fairly good size concert in the park events with 2 of the D12 per side and subs.
Are the D12 boxes able to be mounted on stands? I can't see anywhere in the specs or brochures where it has this information.G
