Solid Construction even after 6 years of weekend gigs. If you want to save more, try this. Buy the cable with 1/4 plugs and change to speakon yourself. It takes about 10 minutes to switch. On a 50' cable you can save another $20-$25. Or you can buy the speakon-to-1/4" adapter and double up on applications using them for PA speakers or speaker stacks. I found cheaper prices at another website which Sam Ash met without problem keeping me loyal.
