simple question: will the 48v travel through a studio snake box?

you didn't say what length and wire size were but I believe the 48v phantom pwr is direct current so voltage drop shouldn't be an issue. is the snake going to be used for live or recording?

Absolutely. In most cases (like 99% of the time) you're all set.

If you have doubts though, just turn on the Phantom power and lick the XLR jacks on the box. If it tastes like burning, you've got a direct phantom output. When you wake up, turn off phantom and hook up your mics and then fire it back up again. :-?

Oh, I pitty my interns. :twisted:

Enjoy.

Yes, except when you wake up there is a white light, and soft music, and the guy in a robe and sandals standing over you says in his most incredulous voice: "What the Hell are YOU doing here!?

You try to answer but what's left of your tongue just can't come up with anything.

Good question though

LOL.... :D :D :D

I hope overlookfran didn't stick his tongue into the XLR port.... ;)

overlookfran, Just make sure you mark the snakes which carry the power... ( saves time during a session.. :) )
