I bought and installed this cable in the walls about 4 months ago, and I am planning on using it for both the xlr and 1/4 inch jacks... https://www.primecables.ca/p-313998-cab-5978-all-80mm-professional-microphone-bulk-cable-3-lengths-available-monoprice#sku313998
So the question I have is for the guitar plug in... should I run the two wires to hot, and the shielding to the sleeve, or just one connector to hot and the shielding to sleeve???
Based on feedback from a member, I am going to dedicate one cable to one plug in for the xlr and a separate cable to the plug in for the 1/4 in and have them always plugged into the mixer.
The longest guitar run is 20 feet across the room, (plus up and down inside the wall) so I am looking at a cable length of not more than 36 feet. All the other runs are shorter, and the shortest one is maybe 14 feet. Then I have the length of cable from the instrument or mic to the wall. I have a few 10 foot XLR and 1/4 inch cables for that. Your thoughts before I wire that jack up and try it?
Our lead guitar player uses an amp, but the rest of us are Guitar, keyboard, and mandolin so we use the 1/4 inch connector to the mixer. Everyone uses a Shure 58 Microphone.
Any thoughts would be appreciated Thanks
