Connecting a Spirit Folio SX to a Peavey XM 6 mono mixer amp?
First post. Hello everybody!
I'm running band rehearsals through an old Spirit Folio SX mixer and plugging it into an even older Peave XM 6 mono PA mixer amp.
There are several ways I could connect the two, but I'm wondering what's actually the RIGHT way to connect them.
The only balanced inputs on the XM6 are the 6 channels' XLR mic sockets. So, I'm using the "TAPE IN" stereo socket with a modified TRS cable, coming from the "MONO SUM" balanced output of the mixer (Hot > L+R, Cold > GND, GND > Lifted).
It works, but it's not pretty. Have I done good, or is there a better solution?
