looking for a rack that will do this

Post by versuviusx » Thu Sep 20, 2012 8:43 am

hi is there such a racked box that i can put in my rack that will allow me to connect my xlr cables from the back of the box and then has xlr inputs on the front of the box so i can just plug cables directly instead of having to pull out my rack at from the wall?
i would love that.
i need an 8 channel version.
would love to find a high quality one.
does this exist? and if so what is it called?

Somebody here turned me onto the idear of using a XLR snake with a XLR stage box.

Works awesome.

I think I have this one:

See, a cool thing about the snake is, not only is it initially cheaper, but you you don't hafta buy add'l mic cords, as that's what a snake is.

plus the portability. throw it over near the drums, save having x amount of crap running along the floor

I'd have a front panel like that made, then solder cables with connectors on the "gear" end to them, avoiding the extra connector at the panel end.

if you were making your own panel, id just go ahead, and get the jack ends, and build your own cables. i did that a while back making rack panels with banana plug to speakon connectors for my monitor amp rack.

probably cheaper with xlr jacks, and bulk cable, than having to buy the panel, and cables, plus you can populate it with either male, or female ends to suite you needs. plus, provided your solder joints are good, less points in the chain to go bad.
