SQN-X7S splitter lead (standard configuration)

The SQN-4S_mini mk II offers individual pre-fader output of each channel (Ch.1-Ch.4), and also Ch.Left and Ch.Right via its 7-pin XLR ITT Cannon chassis connector. Line up tone is also presented.

In its standard configuration, the Neutrik XLR-7F connector of the SQN-X7S cable assembly presents the output of individual channels on Neutrik XLR-3M connectors and Ch.Left / Ch.Right output on a 3.5mm (female) TRS connector.

The standard length of this assembly (60cm) permits connection to a recorder whose inputs are on the opposite side to the XLR-7M output connector of the SQN-4S_mini mk II when mixer and recorder are 'stacked' or share an equipment bag.

SQN-X7_V (variant)

For use with the SQN-4S_mini mk II, the cable illustrated presents the unbalanced output of Ch.Left / Ch.Right on a 3.5mm (male) TRS connector.

Typically used to interface with the mic input sockets of DSLR cameras, the -10dBV output on the XLR-7M chassis connector of the SQN-4S_mini mk II is attenuated within the cable to suit the requirments of particular cameras.

SQN-BS4 splitter lead (standard)

This cable can be used with the SQN-4S Series IV and SQN-4S Series IVe models to present the individual four channel output (Ch.1-Ch.4).

The SQN-BS4 is recommended when the full range of functions permitted by the mixer's Subsidiary I/O, chassis socket [B], is required and in consequence both the Hirose 12-pin 'push/pull' locking plug to chassis socket [B] and the Hirose 12-way 'screw-lock' interface are fully wired.

Because of the pin configuration of chassis socket [B] particular to the SQN-4S Series IV mixer, the mixer model (Series IV or Series IVe) must be specified when ordering.

A standard SQN-BS4 cable assembly (illustrated below) presents the output of individual channels on Neutrik XLR-3M connectors. On the cable illustrated below, channel outputs have been identified according to the following convention: Brown = 1, Red = 2, Orange = 3, and Yellow = 4.

TA3F type connectors may be specified from Channel 3 and Channel 4 output so as to interface with certain recorders without having recourse to adapters, and at no extra charge.

Because of its modular construction, custom output sections may be specified (e.g. to provide single or multiple mix, Channel Left/Channel Right, output, and/or an input of Channel Left/Channel Right to the mix bus.

SQN-BS4_Bdirect splitter lead (standard)

This cable can be used with the SQN-4S Series IV and SQN-4S Series IVe models to present the individual four channel output (Ch.1-Ch.4).

Because of the pin configuration of chassis socket [B] particular to the SQN-4S Series IV mixer, the mixer model (Series IV or Series IVe) must be specified when ordering.

A standard SQN-BS4_Bdirect cable assembly (illustrated below) presents the output of individual channels directly from the mixer's chassis socket [B] to four Neutrik XLR-3M connectors and is ~70cm long. TA3F type connectors may be specified for Channel 3 and Channel 4 output so as to interface with certain recorders without having recourse to adapters, and at no extra charge.

Due to the 'throat' diameter of the Hirose 12-pin 'push/pull' locking connector, variants of the SQN-BS4_Bdirect cable are limited to a single mix, Channel Left/Channel Right, output, or a Channel Left/Channel Right input to the mix bus.

SQN-BS5 splitter lead (standard)

This cable can be used with the SQN-5S Series II or modified SQN-5S (First Series) models to present the individual five channels of these mixers (Ch.1-Ch.5) as individual outputs.

The SQN-BS5 is recommended when the full range of functions permitted by the mixer's Subsidiary I/O, chassis socket [B], is required and in consequence both the Hirose 12-pin 'push/pull' locking plug to chassis socket [B] and the Hirose 12-way 'screw-lock' interface are fully wired.

A standard SQN-BS4_Bdirect cable assembly (illustrated below) presents the output of individual channels directly from the mixer's chassis socket [B] to four Neutrik XLR-3M connectors and is ~70cm long. On the cable illustrated below, channel outputs have been identified according to the following convention: Brown = 1, Red = 2, Orange = 3, Yellow = 4, and Green = 5.

TA3F type connectors may be specified from Channel 3 and Channel 4 output so as to interface with certain recorders without having recourse to adapters, and at no extra charge.

The 'throat' diameter of the Hirose 12-pin 'push/pull' locking connector, permits variants of the SQN-BS5 cable. For example an unbalanced mix output as Channel Left/Channel Right, a Channel Left/Channel Right input to the mix bus, or pre-fader/post-fader switching (see below).

SQN-BS5_Bdirect splitter lead

This cable can be used with the SQN-5S Series II or modified SQN-5S (First Series) models to present the individual five channels of these mixers (Ch.1-Ch.5) as individual outputs..

The SQN-BS5_Bdirect cable assembly illustrated below presents the output of individual channels directly from the mixer's chassis socket [B] in the following manner: Channel 1 and Channel 2 are output via Neutrik XLR-3M connectors and Channels 3, 4, and 5 are output via TA3F connectors. Alternatively, all channels can be presented on Neutrik XLR-3M connectors. The cable assembly is ~70cm long.

Due to the 'throat' diameter of the Hirose 12-pin 'push/pull' locking connector, additional cable 'entries' are not possible. Variants of the Bdirect concept can be provided after discussion with the customer to understand their particular requirements, and agreement upon a configuration is reached.

SQN-BS5 Pre-fader / Post-fader output switching

By default, chassis socket [B] of an SQN-5S Series II, or modified SQN-5S (First Series) presents the mixer's five individual channels (Ch.1-Ch.5) at pre-fader output levels. Incorporation of a control cable within an SQN-BS5 cable assembly* permits output to be switched to post-fader levels, as illustrated below.

*Due to the 'throat' diameter of the Hirose 12-pin 'push/pull' locking connector restricting the number of cable entries, a 5-channel output cable from chassis socket [B] that incorporates a control cable (or other functions) must utilise a single multi-core (screened) cable and the larger Hirose 12-way screw-lock 'break-out' interface of the standard SQN-BS5 cable assembly.
