X-32 System Routing Question

Signal path is stagebox to both FOH and Monitor X-32s, via AES 50, no problems there so far

We prefer to have the FOH console's Talkback, Subs, and Left and Right Mains output signals available at the Monitor Console's Aux TRS outputs 1 thru 4, WITHOUT using any Mon Console's channel strips. Aux inputs ok, channel strips, no.

We have 32 input signals, and need 18 ear mixes using the Mon Console's output busses plus two aux channels (5 and 6).

Possible?

How?

Here for the gear
If you are using 2 x S16 stageboxes I have done almost the same setup a few months ago.

Connect Cat6 as follows:
S16 #1 aes50-B to S16 #2 aes50-A
S16 #1 aes50-A to X32FOH aes50-A
X32FOH aes50-B to X32MON aes50-A

then on X32FOH Outputs page:
Output 1 - Main L
Output 2 - Main R
Output 3 - Main M/C
Output 4 - Talkback

Select appropriate taps.

On X32FOH AES50-B page assign:
1-8 to Out 1-8
9-16 to AES50-A 1-8
17-24 to AES50-A 9-16
25-32 to AES50-A 17-24
33-40 to AES50-A 25-32

This way all necessary signals are sent from FOH console to MON console.

on X32MON Inputs page assign:
1-8 to AES50-A 9-16
9-16 to AES50-A 17-24
17-24 to AES50-A 25-32
25-32 to AES50-A 33-40
Aux In to AES50-A 1-4

If you are using S32 stagebox it's possible to access it's headamps directly from MON console, but I am not sure how to route FOH console then. I'd run the 2nd CAT5 from FOH back to stage and do it the way I just described.

I attached a few MixingStation screenshots with the suggested routing, maybe it looks clearer.

Decision made by others, to use an analog spitter snake.

I've copy/pasted your answer for future refence, thank you for putting the time in on this!
