  • Seeking Muti-pole disconnectable Terminal Blocks . . .

    Something like this --> https://www.parts-express.com/Phoeni...4-Pack-091-372

    Only I need both the male [linked ^ above] and the female [speaker cabinet-input/amp-output panel - mounted] component as well.

    Application:

    3-way DSP/Amp output > speaker connections - these will be panel/and cabinet mounted.

    12 AWG ground-, 12 AWG woofer+, 16 AWG Mid+ and 16 AWG Tweeter+.

    Thanks in advance . . .

    If you're looking for the mate to that connector, look up Phoenix Contact 1786190.

    I believe a panel mount version would be 1098052, but I'm not 100% sure that's the exact mate.

    If you're looking for a 4-pin panel mount speaker connector, why not use a 4 pole Speakon?

      An 8-pole SpeakON would work. https://www.parts-express.com/Neutri...-Mount-092-051

        Also... What amplifier are you using? Are you positive that all 3 channels of your amplifier are single-ended outputs and have a common ground? If not, then you would need to use 6 contacts or more to keep the negatives separated, such as the 8-pole that jhollander recommended. If the amplifiers have differential/bridged outputs, then tying them together would short out 3 halves of the amplifiers and likely cause damage.

          Great point ^ 1100xxben!

          I shall go take a continuity check later this evening.
          For now these are 3 channel @ 200 W/Ch Class D, T amps.

            Output grounds (-) are definitely floating - NOT COMMON to each other.

          Whatever you desire.

          Actually, Wolf's Neutrik suggestion would be better than trying to wade through the thousands of Amphenol variants. A very deep dive into Newark or Digi Key catalogs. Cheaper too.

            I still haven't decided what I will wind up settling upon for a final set of speakers so I will probably just use simple terminal strips and forked crimps on a bunch of speaker builds for a few years.

            Having too many drivers available and this DSP unit and a 6 channel amp is going to keep me busy for the rest of my life, I hope.

              I find this 12-pole connector panel cheap and easy to use with banana plugs.

                Interesting idea - and so obvious that I had over-looked it in the past.

                Thanks - this concept would work on the back of the amp and back of the speakers . . .

                  Both front and back sides accept banana( and double banana) plugs. Gold plated too!

                    I found the perfect solution for my needs thanks to your suggestion - affordable, too.

                    Thanks again, man.
