    16-channel XLR Snake & 12x4 Stage Box - 98 feet (30 Meters)

    Connect your mixing board to your stage performers with this 98 foot 16-channel XLR Snake & 12x4 Stage Box from Monoprice!

    This professional audio snake uses 25AWG conductors and features 12 downstream and 4 upstream connections. The heavy duty stage box measures 12" x 7 1/8" x 3", has 12 female and 4 male XLR connectors, a metal mesh strain relief boot, and a metal bale to prevent stress on the individual connectors. It has a convenient handle on one end and includes mounting holes so it can be secured to a wall or floor position.

    The XLR connectors have metal bodies with plastic sleeves and rubber strain relief boots. The 12 downstream connectors have black plastic rings with white numbers (1-12) and the upstream connectors have blue plastic rings with white letters (A-D). Additionally, the jacket of each cable is labeled with a number every inch or so, making it easy to trace lines and troubleshoot.

    The female connectors have a locking latch, while the female ports on the stage box have locking latch release levers. The main cable has an outside diameter of about 3/4".

    That's a lot of cable !!
    I bought this item back in the summer of 2013. I used it in small venues and at an outside venue where we ran the snake out to full length to the mixer. The cable is thick, heavy, and a little clumsy so you will need some sort of spool to wind it up (like a garden hose type of reel).

    It is a 12 send and 4 return snake, with XLR ONLY.

    If you have monitors and mains on the stage, you will use up the returns pretty quick, and will likely need adapters unless your mixer has a lot of XLR outputs for Aux, etc.

    (The return lines are all XLR, so 1/4" to XLR adpaters are required for our setup)

    So for 2 electric guitars, 1 acoustic, 1 bass, 3 microphones, 4 drum mics, all the channels get used up quick. make sure you plan your setup for instruments, mics, and type of connectors.

    Once you get everyone on their respective channels, and lable the mixer, this Stage Snake makes setup REALLY QUICK if you know what channel you are on !!

    No issues like previous review. All connections work great. Only downfall is shipping was almost $100, but STILL a lot cheaper than any other option.

    PROS: Heavy Duty!

    Well Built

    Reputable company with the best customer service on earth

    CONS: NIL

    Beefy Snake!
    Great Snake for the price. Some volunteers who are helping forget to press the release button on the box when removing cable. This is a good feature but just remind those helping you not to do that. Cables can get jammed if they pull too hard. Good audio on all channels. Connections are well marked. Unit is all XLR including the returns so make sure you have XLR to 1/4in adapters if you have monitors that will not take xlr. Very happy with the purchase, I have had other snakes costing twice as much and this one is just as good. We got a big duffel bag with padding to store it in and love to watch the faces of the guys picking it up when they realize how heavy it is!

    PROS: Sturdy enough and well built. Looks impressive and industrial. Much better than running individual cables!

    CONS: None really I guess the connections need to be "broken in". A little stiff at first but they loosened up with use. Again not really a con just worried me at first, they work just fine now.

    Good Price for a Good Cable
    Good Product, Good Price! Like the fact that it has four return lines as well.

    PROS: Things either work or don't, and this is one of the things that work! We did an install of sound equiptment into a gym and this was perfect for what we needed. Something that works with a decent price!

    CONS: It comes from monoprice and not all monprice items always work.

    The Snake works great. No issues.

    Great product! Heavy duty product should withstand lots of use.
    Great product at a great price. Would definitely recommend the purchase to others.

    PROS: Helps to keep everything really neat and tidy. Ran the full length with 10 microphones and did not hit any issues with drop outs or latency.

    CONS: A little cumbersome and heavy, but what would you expect from that much cable?

    Good enough
    This was a semi-permanent install solution for our church. Given that it would be stretched and anchored only once, I felt pretty confident that the hardware would be up to the task. After reading other comments, I checked every channel before starting the install. I got a clean signal from every channel, release clips worked consistently. There are better constructed, more heavily reinforced snakes on the market, but you will pay 1.5 - 2x more. For our needs this was an ideal solution. In a harsh environment, I wouldn't feel comfortable trusting this as a primary, but it would make for a great spare.

    PROS: Lightweight
    Delivers as promised.

    CONS: Lightweight aluminum enclosure.
    Not heavily reinforced - insulation is a little thin on the individual channels, strain relief is minimal.
    XLR Connections feel a little loose at the board.

    Quality Snake
    Good snake. I was worried: this snake is considerably cheaper than comparable models. When i ordered it, I wondered what I was sacrificing. At least so far, it turns out I sacrificed nothing. I use this for mobile PA use and many events get rowdy. I see no reason why this snake won't last as long as the brand name snake it just replaced.

    PROS: All connections tested perfectly funtional on arrival. Sleek look. Best deal for an all XLR 16 channel snake of it's length.

    CONS: Haven't found any yet. Maybe it'd be nice if monoprice offered a 20 channel snake for a similar value.

    Best for the price
    First of all, I must say that there is no other snake in the market of this quality that you can get for a better price. I've been ordering the 25' mic cables from Monoprice for a while now because they are amazing and you can't beat the price and quality. I figured I'd try my luck on this snake and I ordered two of them. These are pretty heavy but the quality is amazing. The only problem I had was with the no. 3 input on one of the snakes. There is a lock tab that clicks up when you insert the mic cable into the snake which is very common. When you want to release the cable you push the tab and it allows you to pull the cable out of the snake. For whatever reason, this tab on the no. 3 input didn't work and would not release the mic cable. I pulled and pulled and the cable wouldn't come out. I ended up having to unscrew and pull out the whole no. 3 input and somehow, after about an hour, I was able to free the mic cable. The mic cable works perfectly, but the no. 3 input no longer does. If you're going to get this unit just make sure that all the lock tabs work and will lock and release the cable. That's the only reason i didn't give this a perfect 10. Other than that, I'm completely happy with the snake and I will continue to buy from Monoprice as it is the best option out there.

    PROS: Price

    Convenience

    Sturdy

    CONS: Be careful of the release tabs!
