Have you ever wondered what adpaters you need to correctly set up DJ equipment? Well, I’ve been DJing for over 15 years and I’m still learning new things! Since I LOVE MUSIC, on this Valentine’s Day, I decided to talk DJ with one of my good friends, DJ Nickels. In this short quick tip from DJ Nickels, I learned about a new adapter I could use to improve the balance of my sound.
When hooking up from my controller to my JBL Self Powered (Active) Speaker, I was using a single Male RCA to Male XLR. While the normal ear may not be able to tell the difference, I learned I was missing half the signal. What DJ Nickels explained, is in order to have balanced sound, you want to make sure you are plugging into both the left and right signals on your controller. If you only have one Male RCA to XLR, you can use a RCA adapter with one Female and two Male RCA to split the signal into two.
A belated Happy Valentine’s Day to all of you! We hope you spent this weekend doing what you love! I know I did – playing music!
