    Hey Gang! I am piecing back together a ravaged auditorium and it has roughly 10-15 Telex wall mount male XLR jacks. However, I couldn't find the power supply to power/activate all of the jacks. After months of searching the campus I have found a Telex PS-2001L power supply. The problem now.. There are 2 male XLR jacks on the back of the power supply. How to I get the system running? I think I have all the components but can't figure out how to install the power supply. PLEASE HELP!

    ***Should I get a female to female XLR and plug the power supply directly into a male XLR wall jack?

    Yes, provided that there is no other power source on the line that is about the sum of it.

    Thanks Dover! How would I be able to tell if there was another power source on the line?

    Yes, all of those concerns above, plus...

    Methinks the 2001 is a dual channel supply with a "link" switch or something...

    It is designed to power two independent systems and can link them into one big system.

    If it were me going into this cold... I'd pull the panels and see if the wiring is numbered in any kind of fashion.

    I'd make rudimentary drawing so that logical decisions could be made...

    If nothing is labeled (likely) then I'd fox and hound it once I was reasonably assured that all panels were disconnected from external gear.

    Insert rudimentary drawing here and make informed decisions.

    You might also want to dig up a toner and tracer/buttset, and tone a pair and see if it comes out all the other places -- in short, treat it like the telephone wiring it is.

    If I didn't catch the reference, the OP probably didn't either. :)
