    I am looking at an equalizer for my sub and it only has the XLR and 1/4" connections. Is there an adapter that can from one of these to a regular RCA plug? If so, where can I get it? Thanks.


    Or is 1/4" plug the same thing as an RCA plug?

    Radio Shack has RCA (AKA phono plugs) to 1/4" (AKA phone plugs) adapters. Cheap and easy, but not the tightest fit in the world.

    Had to use some when I integrated my BFD into the rig. There are also some nicely made cables with RCA on one end and 1/4" on the other that Wayne has mentioned in previous posts, but I do not have a link handy. You can likely find those at a shop that sells pro gear.

    I could never find this stupid thing at my local RatShack, but they should have it online, as well as www.partsexpress.com

    Also a lot of pro-type places have them; Neutrik, Soundcraft, and... oh, bother, I can't remember the third common name.

    Ed,

    What Brian said. Forget those cheesy 1/4”-RCA adapters. Get some cables with the correct connectors on each end, like these:

    You can find something similar at your local guitar shop.
