At my place, I have speaker ties between control room, live room, vocal booth, and also the speaker iso boxes I'm building. All I did was use a whole lot of heavy-ass speaker cable, and made some patch panels up for the walls. The speaker cable is just soldered to those Neutrik jack sockets with the red catch on the top.

Obviously you can only use this with amp-level signals, but I generally find that beneficial (much easier to tweak as you monitor). The only problems I've run into were when guys came in with combos with no speaker output access - mostly cheaper bass amps, in which case the player has a choice - my ampeg rig or room bleed.

Best thing about this set-up is that it works great and it's much cheaper than a dedicated box!

Hope that helps.
