    Hi all,

    we’re currently looking for options to have our 6 piece band covered for an in ear solution. CQ18 looks like a very sweet option, but we need stereo for our in ear mixes. Does the CQ18 have Stereo Auxes like the SQ series or are the 6 TRS Monitor outs mono balanced?

    If they’re mono, I wonder if we could run 6 Aux for 3 stereo mixes, use the main out for another stereo mix and the two headphone outs for two more independent stereo mixes for a total of 6? Or would that be stretching the capabilities of this unit a bit too far?

    Jeager28, I just logged into my CQ20b and verified you have 8 mono outs or you can link 3 stereo from the 6 outputs. (mains are already linked) I also checked the “Alt Out” (only on CQ18B) and headphones are just copies of of these 8 outs / 4 stereo pairs. You can however control these outputs pre or post master faders, EQ, FBA, Compressor, Limitor all independently of the main mix. These mixers should work well as IEM system as long as 8 mono outs or 4 stereo pairs is not a limiting factor. Hope this helps!

    Thank you. We need 6 stereo in ear mixes. So I guess only the SQs do that. Not even the QU-SB is capable of 6 stereo mixes?

    Qu-sb with an AR or AB extension rack would do it. Just wondering why they all need to be stereo? Forgive me I’ve come from simpler times and worked with pop and rock bands most of my career!😉

    The QU-SB will do 6 stereo mixes, you can switch the groups to be stereo mixes/auxes.
    To access the extra outputs you would need a stage box like a AB168 or AR2412.
    The stage box would also give you additional inputs as well.
