My amp has two speaker output jacks. I would plug one into my speaker cab, and the other into the Brake-Lite. This way my speaker cab would only "see" half of the load and therefore give me less volume. Basically a 3 db drop or so, similar to 1 click down on the attenuator but without having it in line with your speaker. I don't need to reamp the signal or anything, just a single cord running between the amp and Brake.

I don't think you can do that. I may be mistaken, but I believe the circuit design of the Airbrake and the Brake Lite requires a load in order to be "seen" by the amp. Maybe someone from the shop will drop in and confirm...
Sorry got busy and it slipped. I think we are testing it wrong. If I connect a speaker straight out of the amp , then the Brake-Lite with no speaker load connected out of the amp as well and click the Brake-lite I hear little change on first click then none on the remaining clicks.
Is this how komet say's to connect it?
It can't be because with out the Bedroom control ( taken away from the Z-Airbrake ) the Brake-Lite is identical to the komet Airbrake.
No worries. Sounds like you tested it right to me. The Komet guys say that the airbrake set to any load (first click or any click) is going to drop about 3db, similar to the drop on the first click if the attenuator was in line with the speaker.
In your test was the small volume drop about the same as the volume drop of the first click with it in line with the speaker?
My main question, as I can experiment with the sound, is if you think it is safe and won't damage the attenuator or the amp. I would assume it is totally fine as like you said it is the same product as the Komet airbrake.
I was able to score a used one (already!?!) and it should arrive in 2 days so I will check it out.

easyed: Guitar Z, I encountered to ultimate garbage raiding combo once. We'd been having problems with the garbage cans being raided by raccoons for weeks. Late in the evening I heard rattling at the cans. I went out and found that he'd allied with a skunk. "OK"

GuitarZ: EasyEd - Someone at work topped us both. The inside of their car had been somewhat ransacked. They were blaming their son. They checked the video. It was a Bear! I'll stick with the racoons, skunks, foxes, and squirrels.

bigboki: In this age and time when everybody are struggling and especially S&Ms I am amazed to see that kind of ignorance. I am really sorry for your experience dear Dr Z but it is for the better. You don't want to do business with those kind of people anyway.

GuitarZ: Didn't want to restart the plumbing thread, so I figured I'd ShoutBox this. How the heck does cleaning the aerator on a faucet cause a leak to start under the faucet? Huh? Arggggh!!!!

The Bad Poodle Experience: well, Mike, it shouldn't have been the cause of a leak. double-check your work.

GuitarZ: I updated in the Plumbing thread that the Moen website says that a faulty aerator can cause a handle/base leak. Eiyy! I really don't understand how plumbing works. I was ready to double check all connections. But, the leaking stopped with cleaned Aerator.
