DT25 Head to Cabinet Cable
by STPLE on 2012-11-14 12:38:22

I just got the DT25 head and cabinet.  The speaker wire that came with the cabinet seemed pretty small.  Most all the other speaker (head to cabinet cables/wires) seemed much thicker and more robust.  Am I missing something or is that cable fine??  I don't want to do any damage to the head.  Does anyone have a recommendation on a short cable to connect the DT25 to the 112 Cabinet?

It is absolutely fine.  I have a DT-50 head and I have the same cable.  There are no problems at all.  Line 6 would not give you a cable that would potentially cause damage.

Thanks.  I figured.  It just seems so much smaller than any other speaker cable I ever used before.  It reminds me of an extension wire or a lamp wire.  Seems odd.  Just wanted to check and make sure.  Thanks again.

I felt the same about the stock speaker cable so I switched to a Planet Waves PW-S-05. I think it is a great bang for the buck. 14 Guage and feels beefy. I am not going to lie to you and tell you there is a "world of difference" in the tone but .... it made ME feel better to do this and that's what counts.

I thought the same thing but after using it and trying other cables I already had (that are gargantuan in comparison) there is no difference in tone or noise.

Thanks.  By chance do either of you guys know the gauge of the wire that comes with the cab??  If not, no big deal just wondering.
