    So newbie question on the Neutrik chassis mount connector. Is this the preferred one? I've read that this is built better than the 2-pole version.

    If you want to go wild, you can use this one, you would have to enlarge the hole though -

    Yes but some even with the gasket are not air tight. I still seal inside the with hot hot glue with the air tight models and around all binding posts.

    That's the wrong one, you want the NL4MP-UC. Fits perfectly in the hole.

    The gasket just gives it a finished look.

  • Great news! Just sat down to listen to the finished product and the first thing I noticed was dead silence. I’ve been running without the interconnection for a year because I couldn’t get it quiet with it, ground loop or something. Well worth the wait.
    Currently listening to Weather Report and the bells and cymbals are crisp and clear like never before.
    Thank you again for including me in this upgrade!
    This concludes two years of upgrades to my 1.2’s
    Until something else comes along of course!

    Gotcha. Same interface as the NL4MP, but that's the one with a higher current rating. Thank you sir! :smile:

    If the end bell is too small for your cable you can rip off the rubber tip and the clip ring inside. If it's still too small grind out the end like I did.

    Fwiw, the gold tipped neutrik allows cables upwards of 5/8 thick

    The NLT4FX-BAG max opening with the rubber bushing still in it is also 16mm or 5/8". I needed 22mm for the MIT cable, which is why I enlarged the end bell by grinding out the inside. I know someone else simply cut off part of the end bell. I thought of that, but I was concerned the end bell would be too short. I will say the grinding process was a PITA.

    Another option to enlarge the holes on the neutriks is to use a step drill. This is how I enlarged mine for my bi-wire MIT's. If I had to do it over I would not use bi-wires as that was a real challenge for my fat and not so steady fingers.
