Nx12
« on: November 07, 2018, 02:33:14 pm »

Hi, just received a B stock nx 12 for show tomorrow and they did not include the powercon power cord. Little difficult to find. I also noticedy rcfs has an out as well, would it be easier to find cable to go out of one rca to the one with no power cord? Thanks!

You could roll your own pretty quickly using an extension cord or standard IEC power cable and snipping the end off to replace with a PowerCON end.

Guitar center and sam ash carry them if there's one nearby, at a big markup...

Amazon could have them overnighted quite easily from multiple vendors, either ends or complete cables.

This is what I did as I have WAY too many  iec cables - cut off the ends and connected Powercons instead.

The powercon ends are reasonably priced (ebay or Markertek) and easy to install.
I also take a squid-type slitter and switch the 5-15 plug with a Powercon white end.
This allows me to have stage power daisy-chained from the speaker.  No extra xt cord.

Hadn't thought of doing that. Pretty slick.

Any issues with noise?

Not as far as I can tell, It's just daisy chained power.

I have a set of 6 NX12-SMA's and I put three on one circuit jumping in and out of the speakers. On the last speaker, I place a short jumper that feeds a Power box with PowerCon in and out and then jump three of those boxes. It creates a big seamless loop that is very clean, modular and efficient. I have had zero issue with this technique.

So that's 6 on 1 circuit of AC power?

I'm not sure how to read that post, either. 6 boxes on one circuit is hopefully what he's doing. I don't know how your USA-power would deal with that, but it'd be fine here in the UK. I don't envy you guys at all in that regard.

That's what it sounds like, 3 cabs then what I assume is an edison breakout box of some sort in the middle, then three more cabs.
