So if Debbie uses the AB168 for a stage box and runs a cat5 to the SQ, she will be losing the benefit of the better mic preamps in the SQ?

Correct. But the preamp is just a part of the sound. The algorithms and internals dictate a part of it.

SQ internals are at 96k but what about the outputs on the AB168? Will her FOH and IEM returns be at 48k or 96k (before D/A conversion)?

SRC happens at the sLink port (if necessary) so for dSnake protocol (AB/AR stage boxes) that would be 48k.

I would hope the SQ iPad app at least would let her move the faders, adjust monitor sends, and do some EQing.
I would think this would be adequate for her purposes once the show has started. She can still access the SQ if she sets it up side stage.

It does that definitely. It's just not as robust an app (yet) as the QU app is.

It can mix (quite well I might add). It can't set up the board (they added routing recently & FX control, so it's coming along).

First, apologies if this is a repeated question. I did some searching through the forums and found a lot of helpful/useful information, but nothing that was exactly what I'm curious about so, without further ado...

My band is gradually updating our IEM system. We currently run a Behringer XR18. It sits next to our drummer, who's hardwired in to the main out (where he gets click, background FX, and main vox). Our vocalist is the only one with a wireless IEM, and he currently runs the FOH mic to a splitter at the base of the mic stand, gives FOH their clean split, and runs the other line into the XR18. He has his own mix of click/FX/himself (separate from the drummer).

We're going to be upgrading to where all of us (5 total) have our own ears. Our main thing is just hearing ourselves in crappy live situations. I've read a lot, seen a lot, and know a lot of people who will completely mic everything with their own mics, send those signals to an s8, then split to go into their mixer and separately to FOH. I think that's a great idea - albeit not entirely necessary for us.

So what I'm thinking about doing is getting our own mics for cabs, our own vocal mics (split as I detailed above), and a trash mic for the drums (just for the basic sound). Then rather than split it all, run OUR mics all into OUR system for our IEMs so we know that at least OUR mix is the same every show - and then let the sound guy do his thing with his own gear and mics. Does anyone else do that? A con is potentially more stuff to plug up , but then again mic'ing a drum set is really about the same in terms of number of hookups.

But also, in the hypothetical, if we were to spend a bit extra to get an s8 and self-contain all the splits, etc., and get mics for a full drum kit: How many mics and on what drums would be safe for a typical venue? I wouldn't want too much (don't really want to set up a ton of mics and overheads), but also wouldn't want not enough to where the mix isn't what it should be for FOH.

For reference: We run analog gear; tube amps & analog pedals. I know about TwoNotes, and would love to have those, but alas money is tight for the time being.

Thanks!

One question is,  If I do that, what is the best clamp out there supporting ‘quick’ deploy and quick strike.

There are several types of quick-release clamps available.  A quick Google search will turn up plenty of results.  Just make sure you get the right size to match the truss you bought.

I think you tried to type the degree symbol, but it came out as " ' ".  They could be 120 feet apart, but there should be 120 degrees of difference in the three phases.
I have used single quotation (apostrophe) marks interchangeably for degrees for decades now...

The only problem with this is at the moment the SQ app is somewhat limited (although it keeps getting better).
Settings & scene changes aren't accessible.

SRC keeps internals at 96k always. It uses whichever mic pre the signal hits first?

The degree sign isn't an easy one in Windows.  ALT + 0176 is what it takes.  °°°

Here's some help...

Perhaps having a board that ISN'T good at handling overloaded preamps produces better habits of mixing ;)

Methinks that Perhaps you are Right!

Yes, there is a way. I call it baking, but you can call it sticking them in the oven set to warm ( 160deg. ) for about 5-10 min.

DO NOT forget that they are in the oven though. I had a friend that did this and he forgot about them, the cables were not exactly usable after he realized. After a few min. in the oven set to about 160 deg. they will soften up. You can pull them out and then work out some of the kinks and re-wrap them how you want and then place it back in the oven for a little longer. The jacket will get rather pliable almost like a thick rope and that is about the point where you will get the easiest results. Let it cool normally and it will be good as new.

Not to be overly pedantic and this is confusing, but the two hots you are measuring across are considered the same phase in electrician/power terms... They may be opposite polarity but are from the same phase, in the context of 3 phase power with three different phases that are each spaced 120' apart.
