    How to connect iQ18B to iQ15 using XLR cables.

    I just got my (2) iQ18B subs and want to connect to my pair of iQ15 using XLR mic cables. I知 not using the Ethernet at this time. I知 using the X32 Rack and will be using the left and right speaker outs. What is the best way to do this.

    Thanks

    I知 not sure what you are asking, but you have in general two options.

    * Connect each sub to its respective L & R main outputs (out 7/8?) and then link from each sub to the respective top. Make sure to set the crossovers preset to your setup.

    * Connect each top to its respective L & R main outputs. Connect the sub to the M/C output set to e.g. out 6. Have the tops crossover go fullrange and set the subs crossover to match the tops. Send kick, floor tom (and possibly the rack toms as well), bass and keys to the m/c bus to taste. Don稚 forget the gates

    I mostly do the second option as it gives me the flexibility I want.

    Yeah I値l be connecting to iQ18B subs to (7/8) out puts and then using mic cable connecting to tops iQ15痴 the DSP in the iq15 set to iQ18B for subs and the iQ18B subs are set as iQ15 fo the tops crossover is automatically set by default I believe is this correct.
