Right type of audio cable to use.


Recommended Posts

I am going to use the audio from our radio guy to go along with our stream feed. He has only main output L & R left to use on his mixer which is a 1/4" phone plug. I am then need to use some type of adapter to convert it to an XLR connection which is what I have plugged into my mixer. I have had several people give me several different things on what I should do to make it work. I was actually looking for a dual phone jack to XLR adapter cable and did find one but it was way too expensive for no more than what we are doing. I was actually looking at using something like this https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000068O5D/ref=s9u_simh_gw_i7?ie=UTF8&fpl=fresh&pd_rd_i=B000068O5D&pd_rd_r=4Q37BT5ZDR6D2KTZQST1&pd_rd_w=hqPym&pd_rd_wg=1Ll0c&pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_s=&pf_rd_r=71RQ3VMRZ5W2ESYB9HGX&pf_rd_t=36701&pf_rd_p=1cf9d009-399c-49e1-901a-7b8786e59436&pf_rd_i=desktop to then add to this https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00WZQH0M8/_encoding=UTF8?coliid=IMHV8P6NYKMF4&colid=1JK1WA1PPAW13&th=1 which will then run into a 35' XLR cable hooked up to my mixer.

Someone suggested this may be better for a combination This https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000068O1O/ref=s9u_simh_gw_i2?ie=UTF8&fpl=fresh&pd_rd_i=B000068O1O&pd_rd_r=4Q37BT5ZDR6D2KTZQST1&pd_rd_w=hqPym&pd_rd_wg=1Ll0c&pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_s=&pf_rd_r=71RQ3VMRZ5W2ESYB9HGX&pf_rd_t=36701&pf_rd_p=1cf9d009-399c-49e1-901a-7b8786e59436&pf_rd_i=desktop into this https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0002E53O2/ref=s9u_simh_gw_i4?ie=UTF8&fpl=fresh&pd_rd_i=B0002E53O2&pd_rd_r=4Q37BT5ZDR6D2KTZQST1&pd_rd_w=hqPym&pd_rd_wg=1Ll0c&pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_s=&pf_rd_r=71RQ3VMRZ5W2ESYB9HGX&pf_rd_t=36701&pf_rd_p=1cf9d009-399c-49e1-901a-7b8786e59436&pf_rd_i=desktop which will also then run into a 35' XLR cable hooked up to my mixer.

Someone also suggested running 2 separate cables to my mixer by using something like this but 2 of them. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00WZQH0M8/ref=twister_B00XLY7MTY?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&coliid=IMHV8P6NYKMF4&colid=1JK1WA1PPAW13

The problem with the last one is that it is a run of 40'. I would need 2 40' runs.

So let me run through my scenario of what I am going to do again. Go from main out phone jack L & R and somehow get it to my mixer 40' away and into an XLR input. Any ideas? Thanks.
