    Does anyone know if the CQ18T main LR XLR outs are too hot to send to FOH? My old ZED10FX has a -20db pad for this.

    Thanks!

    CQ Main LR and outputs 1-6 are all professional +4dBu line level (with output level at 0dB on the meter), so you can connect these directly to any line level input on other equipment, providing it accepts +4dBu signal of course!

    The -20dB pad on the ZED series output is there so it can be connected to mic inputs which may not be able to accept line level signal and may not have a pad available, but it’s still a good idea with any submixer to use a DI box if possible, as this can electrically isolate the two mixers, give options for ground lift and prevent potential damage from phantom power being sent from the main mixer to the submixer.

    Cheers,
    Keith.
