G Lee, I believe you may be being overly cautious about the phantom power thing.

I’d not want to put a simple split on a mic to two separate desks with phantom power (though in the real world, even this is not usually a problem). But for the same desk – or in this case stage box – I’m sure a normal split lead with phantom will be fine as, it’s all from the the same power supply.

If a mic is connected to two inputs, all the voltages will match exactly, then each one needs to only supply half the current required. That’s not going to damage anything.
