Black cube taps, who makes em?
Sadly, they're only 14awg. But that works for most things that will use a cube tap. So you can put 3 500W instruments on this thing.
The owner of goodbuyguys is a member on this forum, but he doesn't post. Plus, he runs a tight ship, and donates time and gear to my old high school.
(and he scared the crap out of me with this, but that's for another thread.)

edison plug is only rated for 15 amps. A 20 amp rated edison has a horizontal blade on the neutral.
gauge" rating as they contain no wire! (Yes, late one night, I widdled one apart... I forget the circumstances.. ) I guess it's rating is based on the prong configuration which is for 15 amp. From what I remember, the flat metal inside it looked thicker that what I would consider 14, although judging flattened out pieces of metal as what a round wire might have been is probably not my strong point!
rating probably also has to do with the material they make them out of.
Plug in 2 1k pars and see if it starts to smoke .
Have fun with that one. Hope you enjoy the fireworks.
smoke one with two 1k pars plugged into it... BUT--- If you were to use one on a show, put 20 amps through it, and there was a fire, you can be darn sure you would get sued! So, don't.
As for use on equipment drawing less than 15 amps, but on a 20 amp breaker, well, this subject has been hashed and rehashed. There is a recent thread about the 15 vs 20 amp Edison plugs that I think would apply to this as well.
Lex Products also sells Black Cube Taps.
how much are the LEX ones though? These can be had for $250 per 100
purchase if someone else wants some. Except I don't see a link to them.
