Possibly a very stupid question. But one that's puzzled me. It would be madness and dangerous to have a cable in the home with. a regular 13amp plug on each end. I remember seeing on at high school once and when one of the teachers saw it in use went mental at someone for it even existing.
So how come we use speaker cables with amplifierss with a male connector at each end. Aren't we connecting it to a lot of power? After all a 100w amplifier is a powerful thing - how much power is coming down that cable to the speakers? Surely one could be easily shocked by a speaker cable.
Or if not much power is coming down those cables to the speakers then where is all that power going? Two hefty transformers in a 100w head - all that electricity must be going somewhere?
And on that subject, why two transformers in a valve amp? Can't we make one do all the work?
Thanks for anyone taking time to ask these baby questions.
Edit: To answer myself slightly. Of course I just realise 100W amplifier head sounds crazy powerful. But that's like an old lightbulb isn't it. So it isn't that much power.
