    Default First time with PA speakers, power help

    Hey guys I just got a pair of QSC K12 is it true its ok to plug them right into the wall with no surge protection?

    Also is it ok to plug a 14 awg extension cord into a 12 awg that's plugged into the outlet? I found a 3 outlet plug but its 12awg. I'm going to plug both speakers into 2 of the outlets then the last one will have my surge protector with my dj equipment, just curious about using different gauges.

    Thanks

    I think you actually suppose to plug them directly into the wall.

    the different guages you have are fine. 14 AWG is plenty big enough. It certainly doesnt hurt if they had surge protection either and I would reccomend it against lightening strikes and violent surges just to be safe.
