PS Powerstand without B1

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 You can then take make up two more banana plugs with a 10k resistor like this

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
