    Hey All,

    I am in need of a dual adapter for a 1/4" plug(s) and XLR plug(s)..does something like this exist? (see picture i drew) It would allow for me to plug in two headphones for example into one port..or two XLR mics into one port..

    If so, where do you buy them from?

    Hosa makes what you are looking for and so does ProCo.

    I think even Monster. Go to your local GC and get them

    Hosa is here http://www.hosatech.com/hosa/products/yxl-119.html

    ProCo would probably be custom http://www.procosound.com/products.htm

    Monster would be here for the heaphones http://

    Here as well for the microphone Y adpater http://www.audiogear.com/Audio-Adapters-Xlr.html

    Here it is link removed or at the HOSA site. Look around at http://www.hosatech.com/ and you could also check with your local GC or Radio Shack or Sam Ash. I have even seen them at flea markets and in high end stereo stores. I simply looked for 1/4 inch Stereo Y cord on the net. Hope this helps.

    OK, not to be sarcastic here. Im serious. I made 2 talkback switch boxes in this manner.


    Small 3"X2"X1"ABS project box: $2.99
    1/4" stereo female surface mounts 3 of them for: $4.99
    Wire .99 cents

    Drill 3 holes in the ABS box, 2 on the top 1 on the side,
    solder the wiring from 1 of the jacks to the other 2,
    screw the top on the box. : 20 minutes.

    Knowing you did it yourself the way you want it: Priceless :cool:
