Agreed, but then with this rack, I'm attempting to stuff 10 gallons of stuff in a 5 gallon bucket, and keep the weight down.  And I figured with that butt kicker patch cable, audio quality is seemingly of negligible concern, and either it will likely either work a-ok or clearly not.


That is a good point but what happens if you get hum on the input of a butt kicker?  For some reason I didn't make the quality/butt kicker doesn't matter connection. 


That buzzing butt kicker could be an "interesting" personal experience.

Personally I would use a DI, I don't like just electrically adapting the cables.  I am sure some folks don't agree with that.  In fact, you sell some really great matching boxes!

I'd probably cheat and wire the adapter cable as:

Pin 1 - ground - N/C
Pin 2 -  hot   - T
Pin 3 -  cold  - S


That should avoid ground loops (since you aren't tying the grounds of the two pieces of equipment together) while still allowing you to used a twisted pair and grounded-shield cable for the connection.

It's not going to be perfect, but with an unbalanced input I figure there's always going to be some compromise. :)
