The standard way to use Speakons for just one speaker is to use 1+ and 1- on a 4 conductor connector. I don't know why this is, but its the way that pro amps and speakers are wired up. The 4 conductor plug will also work on 2 conductor sockets.
For a fancier look, check out the metal ones:
The metal series includes a in-line female for fabricating Speakon extension cables.
