Re: XLR Patch panel - to build or buy premade?

One option that I learned here is to use a stage snake with a female XLR box on one end, and then loose male ends to the pre's.

Re: power conditioner/power bars

Because you are taking your power from the battery, any dirt in the lines (RF?*) appears to be filtered, IME. If you are referring, BTW, to RFI , that's something different than RF and is similar to EMI; I noted an improvement (near total elimination) with that, also. The only downside is the batter...
