    High quality 16ohm L-Pad

    Can you recommend a L-Pad that is better sounding than the simple L-Padīs from partsexpress for 15$ ?

    I have found some serious L-Padīs from Fostex, but they are only available in 8ohms...


    Thanks a lot,
    Olaf

    Hallo Olaf,

    I use these heavy duty l-pads from Monacor: https://www.monacor.de/produkte/comp...stbau/at-62st/

    You can wire the stereo 8 ohms l-pad to a mono 16 ohms l-pad.

    If autoformers are an option for you then I can definitly recommand Bob Crites' ones.
    3dB steps version: http://www.ebay.com/itm/382061369270 (the one I used for fixed attenuation, with all the taps on one side)
    1.5dB steps version: http://www.ebay.com/itm/371932355023 (more suited for a variable attenuator)

    Thanks a lot both of you!

    I would like to stick with L-pads, as I have no experience with autoformers at all...
    Rewire a stereo 8ohm L-pad to 16ohms seems to be an option, thank you. Are there any sonical drawbacks compared to a factory 16ohm l-pad ?

    I have bought these;

    Speaker L-Pad Volume Attenuator AT-50H 50W RMS, 16 Ohms

    They seem good quality.

    The Quest Goes On...

    Hi All,

    Seems as though L-Pads in 16 ohm impedance with a '1" Shaft' are as hard to find as obsolete JBL Recones! So builders of 43xx systems, "What are you using

    for your L-Pads" in your build? Are the 50W ones capable enough when it states "100W"??

    If anyone can Help or direct me to their availability - I would be most grateful!! Even just to know if you're getting the 3/8" Shaft and extending it...?

    What to do?
