Could someone verify my power amp connection

    Im unsure of these cables i made for connecting balanced outputs of my mixer(TRS) to my crown power amp in(XLR).

    I wired them this way:
    pin1=trs ground
    pin2=trs tip
    pin3=trs sleeve

    It works but i know from experience that just because something works doesn't always mean it's correct or not risky.
    I googled it but i have a hard time understanding the different TRS to XLR wireing schemes.
    Thanks for reading and any confirmation.

    OK i finally confirmed it on google.It is correct but i said (ground/tip/sleeve) intead of tip/ring/sleeve) so you see why i always have to Double Check my work.lol

    TRS=Tip Ring Sleeve.

    You should go to the Crown website and download the specs and do the same with the mixer. In the US generally Pin 2 is (+)=tip, Pin 3 is(-)=ring and Pin 1=sleeve (common).

    That is the standard North American pin out.
