    These things are always more involved than they seem...

    If by "stereo" you mean Left and Right signals, that's not the way XLR connectors are normally used. Clarify please? Maybe tell us what you're connecting into and out of?

    Hie Karl. I am connecting from a YAMAHA EMX5000 Mixer into a JBL EON speaker. The output from the mixer is a 1/4 inch jack whilst the input of the Speaker is an XLR Connector. Thanks.

    Which model EON? The ones I found on the web have 1/4" inputs.

    They are JBL EON15 P-1 speakers.

    I assume you're connecting the mixer LR outs to the JBL speaker inputs, NOT the speaker outputs to the JBL speaker inputs. The link cited by Vteck has a very clear diagram.

    edit: Hmm, that's odd, I just copied the url and it doesn't work. Go back up to message 2 from aug. 5 and click on that and you will get a diagram.

    Karl, the forum software automatically shortens the visible URL. To copy one of these links you need to right-click the link and select "copy link" (or whatever your browser calls it). I fixed the link above.
