The Patching Adapter™ includes (6) 1/4″ phone jacks in parallel. This unit can be one
of the most useful “tools” available for patching systems together when “Y”
connectors are needed.
Actually, the Patching Adapter is a six-way “Y” connector which may be used for
channel grouping of submasters or for any situation calling for paralleling of several
Be careful when paralleling outputs from mixers, effects devices, etc., because not all
manufacturers provide “build – out resistors” which allow those outputs to be mixed.
Several speaker enclosures may be connected to one power amp with the Patching
Adapter, but total system impedance should be considered. Speaker cables (not
shielded patch cables) should be used for speaker level. Shielded cables should be
used for all low level patching.
