This page needs to be expanded, but I wanted to capture this[1]:

"A safer (but less elegant) way of getting the B1 EQ activated is to modify a Speakon cable so that there is a 5k or 10k resistor between the 2+ and 2- pins of an NL4 plug.

The easiest way to do that is to run normal speaker wire or lamp cord from 2+ and 2- to a banana plug like this http://www.radioshack.com/product.asp?catalog%5Fname=CTLG&product%5Fid=274-717. You can then take make up two more banana plugs with a 10k resistor like this

http://www.radioshack.com/basket.asp?sku=%2C271%2D1335%2C&iGo=

across the pins. By simply cascading none, one, or two of the "resistor plugs" you can get three different EQ curves and check which one you like better.

That's a little do-it-yourself project but requires only a screwdriver, some parts, and a little patience.

Hope that helps
