    Comm headset splitter

    I thought this would be a common question, but couldn't find anything in a search. Is there any reason building a 4pin XLR Y cable wouldn't work to put two headsets on one beltpack?

    DIY Stage Video Monitors

    So over the summer my space pulled a few video lines and added TV monitors Back stage (Stage Left/ Stage Right) and added a few camera angles connected to a switcher in the booth (Backstage View, Full stage view, etc). We don't have the money to invest in professionally made monitors so I was...
