    Default Audio cable adaptors? Do I need them ??

    Hi,

    I DJ at clubs/bars and always plug in my RCA cables from my audio 8 for sound.

    However I am starting soon to do private partys. I have an 18th in a week to DJ. I am just wondering wether I need any other type of audio cables or adaptors?

    Are the RCA cables always standard even if I am plugging directly into the venues speakers.

    Thanks

    Always carry extra wiring with different connectors (1/4, XLR, etc) or adaptors. You never know when you will need them till you do. Normally PA's have mono 1/4 inputs

    thank you! just ordered some 1/4 adaptors.

    for the XLRs I am guessing I need the 3 prong ones. Is the side with the prongs a male or a female what I need.

    Is it easier just to ring the venue?

    normally female, but check with the venue.

    It's highly probable they have a mixer (even if it's not on the booth) between you and the sound system, if that is the case 1/4 will be enough.
