    Hey so we are getting an SQ7 and with it two DX 168 so just wanted to which neutrik ethercon connectors are recommended. Is there any particular connectors from neutrik?? The local distributor doesn’t have the cat6 cabels by Allen and heath so we wanted to have temporary solution. So any idea which model of neutrik ethercon connectors we need that is compatible with the mixer and the stage boxes??

    I use the ProCo Ethercon CAT5E cable with Ethercon on both sides. It works fine with AB stage box and Qu, so should work for SQ.

    But if you must use CAT6, ProCo has this:

    A&H specified that NE8MC6 will not physically connect.

    If you are building the CAT6 cable yourself, use the NE8MX6 family, and the choose the variant based on on your wire gauge, and shell color preference.

    NE8MC-B is for CAT5E wire.
