Ok so I started building a XLR pass through panel so I don't have to crawl behind the rack to plug in mics, snakes etc.
I used the Middle Atlantic 2 space universal punch out panel (32 channel)
, and the Neurtik NC3FD-L-B-1
connectors. I wired it with Mogami 2932 8 channel snake (2 of them for 16 channels). Male XLR's on one end and the other end soldered to the connectors on the panel. I twisted the drain wire and the ground wire together and soldered them to pin 3 (ground) hot and cold went to the correct pins of course.
Everything was hooked up in the rack,, worked fine with the dynamic mics when testing, however I couldn't get phantom power through for the condenser mics.
What did I do wrong? Any help will be greatly appreciated, I'm at the end of my nerves now.
I attached a photo of the XLR connector in the panel. I already removed all cabling to start over.
