    Check out the new BP.15 minature beltpacks for wired intercoms. These things are really small. At only 15% of the normal size, they are lighter(only 4.8oz, compared to their standard BP-1, which weighs in a 13.5oz), smaller(it's over an inch skinnier, which means it won't wack everything that's at hip level as you walk around) , and amazingly enough, it still has a place in the upper echelons of the almost-indestructable stage equipment category. But, miniaturization has its costs. it's smaller size will not accommodate the conventional three XLR jacks on the bottom (rear) panel. The 4-pin head set jack had to be retained but we have substituted a miniature XLR-type jack for the other two. The BP.15 comes with a cable constructed from a length of steel reinforced cable with the miniature plug on one end and a 3-pin female XLR on the other. A second cable is available with the miniature plug on one end feeding into a Y with a male XLR on one leg and a female on the other for looping onward to the next station in the system.

    If you have used one, post a comment on what you thought of it. I am especially interested in how much a hassle the mini-XLR plugs are.

    I know from working with Mini-XLR in the past, that the wires tend to break easily under stress, which having it on your belt would create

    Unless the steel reinforcement helps any.

    The cables just have a major problem pulling out of their XLR-mini connector.
