Beginner Sub Question
Though I've built several sets of speakers, this next project would be the first DIY subwoofer I have done, and I have a dumb question. (Strange, I know many people getting into DIY speaker stuff start with a sub)
I'm using the Dayton 100watt plate amp and a Dayton RS10"HF sub. What's the best way to connect the two.
The amp ends in two female disconnects while the sub seems to want banana inputs. I was probably going to strip off the disconnects and solder on a couple male banana ends. Is this what I should do? or is there something I'm failing to notice?
Again, sorry if this question is really dumb.
Re: Beginner Sub Question
IIRC, they are push-spring-terminals like the "toggles" for shoes of the 80's. Just strip the wire and insert it. If they are 5-way binding posts, the same applies, or you can do the banana thing. I prefer the set-screw style bananas though.
will do, thanks wolf! *NM*
kein Problem! *NM*
Isn't that just a little to less power to be putting to that woofer?

Not necessarily. I can see a 240 being a better match myself, but it's only 1.5dB difference or so between the two in output. Headroom is the only worry, but if he doesn't rattle the walls like we've been known to do, he'll be fine.
It's early, correction...

That should be 4.5dB, not 1.5dB.
Re: It's early, correction...
Yes, i don't plan on rattling the walls. I didn't see why I should spend money on output I wouldn't use.
