The SLS-2 is a speaker cable splitter/combiner patch panel, primarily for installation amplifier racks. Using Neutrik speaker cable jumpers, the amplifier outputs conveniently patch into the front panel. The outputs on the rear panel then combine channels 1 & 2 into a single NL4 connector providing a Bi-amp output marked 1-2. This is repeated for channels A 3-4, B 1-2 and B 3-4. Each of these Bi-amp NL4 outputs are then combined together in their respective A & B groupings, into a single NL8 connector that can be used to feed an 8 conductor cable with an NL8FC connector allowing flexible patching of 4 full range or two Bi-amp NL4 output connectors in a stage box, by moving a single NL8 connection. An amplifier rack that has four 2 channel amplifiers with Bi-amp NL4 connector outputs when patched into the rear panel, provide all 8 full range amp channels on the front panel.
An alternative use of the SLS-2 is to take an NL8 patch cable from a four channel amplifier that uses an NL8 connector for its output and patch it into one of the SLS-2 rear panel NL8 connectors which then split or fan out into four separate NL4 connectors (Pin 1+ & 1- only) on the front panel for full range speaker cable connectivity.

DISTRO (SKU: 10042)This is a break-out box that connects the first two contacts (pin 1+, 1-) of an NL4 connector to the first two contacts (pin 1+, 1-) of an NL4 and the other two contacts of the first NL4 connector (pin 2+, 2-) and connects them to the first two contacts (pin 1+, 1-) of a second NL4 connector.� ~ This has the same wiring as a COMBO that uses all NL2/Combo connectors. ~ Applications: This enables two (2) full range speakers to be connected to a single four (4) conductor speaker cable.
MATRIX (SKU: 10082)The MATRIX is an adaptor box that breaks out an NL8 into two (2) NL4’s. The first half of the NL8 connector (Pins 1+, 1-, 2+, 2-) connect to the same pins on the first NL4 connector. The second half of the NL8 (Pins 3+, 3-, 4+, 4-) connect respectively to Pin 1+, 1-, 2+, 2- of the second NL4.
