wiring adaptors for BOTH +/-bias
Zach R posted a topic in Technical ReferenceHey, Is it possible to wire an adaptor (ta5 to waterproof MM) to work for both positive and negative bias trams? I feel like the stock mm adaptors are wired to handle both but I'm not sure how that would be wired - Is there an extra jumper somewhere on the ta5M side of the adaptor? Specifically I'm trying to figure out what the wiring should be for that lectro cable that works with both +/-bias trams and a redband cos-11.. The current cable I have doesn't work at all with the -bias tram and creates some grounding issues with the cos-11 when you touch the metal casing of the MM thanks!
HELP! Waterproofing XLRsAfter doing a show in Canada in the freezing cold and snow, I wanted to find out what the best and easiest way to waterproof an XLR connection is, between two cables. I had 4 PA towers, and that's a lot of XLR breakouts of snakes, as well as 200 foot runs with 2 100' XLR cables that are connected where there was snow and melted snow. Also, it was about -10C when I was setting up, so using e-tape and plastic bags was a time-wasting activity, not to mention annoying because I was wearing snowboard gloves and I had to take them off to peel the e-tape with my fingernail every time I had a new one to do... So, is there a simple way to waterproof 2 XLR connectors? I've been searching and searching, and there isn't really a commercially available product specifically made for XLR connectors, so I've been searching deeper into things I can repurpose for this job - such as bicycle handlebar grips... garden hose couplers... etc. etc. etc. What have you guys done that waterproofs your connections quickly and something you can hopefully do with heavy warm gloves on? Some of the shows I'll be doing in Russia, Canada, Europe... all outdoors and VERY cold... I've looked at Saran wrap, but I'm a little weary of it because of the pollution aspect of it... Thanks in advance!!!
