Neutrik announced the debut of the Speakon Combo NLJ2MD-V, a unique combination of a jack and the Speakon chassis connector NL4MD-V in one shell at NAB 2004 in Las Vegas. The concept of the Speakon Combo is similar to that of Neutrik’s current popular Combo series, an XLR female receptacle combined with a jack in one housing.

The two-pole Speakon Combo is compatible with the existing NL4MD-V panel cutout and vertical PCB layout. The mating connector on the Speakon Combo can be either a Speakon cable connector (NL2FC, NL4FC, NL4FX or NL4FRX) or a TS plug (such as NP2C). According to PA-wiring, the tip of the plug is connected to 1+, while the sleeve is connected to 1-.

“The Combo combines the best of both connectors,” says Jim Cowan, president of Neutrik USA. “The versatility and flexibility offered by this connector will be a welcomed addition to the Neutrik line of innovative products.”

The new Speakon Combo is rated current for both Speakon contact (30 Amp rms) and for contact (15 Amp rms). By combining the two-pole connector with a jack, the Speakon Combo is more convenient and space saving for users.
