Title: unbalance stereo to balanced mono adapter?
Post by: Adam Wh3tham on May 10, 2013, 04:50:09 pm
Is there any other little adapter like the RDL TX-J2 (http://www.rdlnet.com/product.php?page=164) that has phoenix connectors on both sides?  I really don't want to be soldering resistors in the back of the install rack, as its rather cramped.

I keep finding some great little bits that are causing some headaches. Installer just took the left and right signal and twisted them together...

So I'll take that as a no.... Dang it, Guess its soldering up resistors in the back of the rack. :(

Closest I found was this guy (http://www.bhphotovideo.com/bnh/controller/home?O=&sku=536369&Q=&is=REG&A=details)

EDIT:

Found another option. This guy I can throw Phoenix connectors on the other side and i'll be set.
Thanks for the idea's though.

Dunno, if it was me I would take a few minutes and build my own out of a small enclosure and Phoenix connectors, especially if I needed more than one. They should go pretty quick once you design and assemble the first one.

Doesn't use phoenix connectors, but they are screw down barrier strips.

I think this would be closer to what he's looking for...

...but it's still an active product that would require a power supply and is most likely overkill and out of budget if there are a substantial amount of sources that must be summed down.

Woo hoo, free Earthworks M30!!!    ;D

Actually I've used those Edcor S2M devices as an inexpensive means of taking an output from an iPod or MP3 player, and feeding it directly into a DSP processor a distance away.  Great for multi-purpose systems where they just need to use it for music playback for rehearsals, etc without having to bring out the entire rig.

While not t-block on both ends, it's at least RCA tails instead of just a jack.
