To clarify my question, I'm focusing on where the fork between speakers is located.
here's a visual, as I'm horrible at putting my thoughts into words.
the (o) is a speaker, and the [amp] represents, well the amp.
(o) === [amp] === (o) : this basically being a "Y" split (what I refered to earlier as typical)
[amp] === (o) === (o) : daisy chain.
[amp] === [junction box] -> each speaker
If Im correct, daisy chains have a fall off the longer they get. As I'm making cables, I would like to use whichever method proved to be most reliable but speakon's are totally new to me and I'd rather be safe than sorry, even if I'm just splitting hairs.
After reading your post Mr. Fitzmaurice I must confess I never thought of using a second terminal box. I was just going head first with one per sub and thinking of making the split at the speakon.
Forgot to mention, but my enclosure terminals are not speakons, just standard binding posts.
