The county where I live had a big garage sale at the fair grounds, so we went. I got an old, but very functional, mic stand (which is good because I have two microphones and only one stand before today) and two 50′ xlr mic cables. My thinking is that someday I will get some powered speakers for my mixing board and the mic cables will work for the line level signal going from my board to the powered speakers. I know if I were trying to go from a power amp to passive speakers, that mic cables aren’t good, but my understanding is that for the board to active speakers, I should be ok. Anyone out there able to confirm my theory?
And even if it is a bad theory (mixer to active speakers), I still have two long mic cables for cheap! Now I can recreate Andrew W.K.’s video.
