The Rycote ConnBox 6 Connection Box Modular Suspension System are designed to mount on the Rycote Suspension system. The ConnBox serves as a solution for 2 major problems associated with microphone shock isolation. Rigid microphone cables often deny true microphone isolation, weighing the microphone down and causing noise from movement and vibration to reach the microphone. Noise and rattling due to bulky cable connections can cause problems as well.
The ConnBox simply connects between the microphone and input device. Being that the ConnBox mounts to the Suspension system, the microphone cable is given the necessary slack needed to achieve true noise free isolation. The ConnBox features a hardwired output cable (XLR 3-pin or 5-pin connection depending on model) and TA-3M or TA-5M (also model specific) input connectors. The microphone cable is always included and features a standard 3-pin XLR female connector.
A hardwired 5-pin XLR output cable connects to stereo 5-pin XLR microphone inputs. The ConnBox will pass phantom power to condenser microphones whenever necessary. The Rycote ConnBox 6 Connection Box Modular Suspension System mounts directly onto the Rycote Suspension Mount, relieving cable tension that can cause noise or damage.
Acting as a transition connector and anchor point for the microphone tail, the lengths of cable are set to work perfectly with the microphone fitted in the windshield, without touching the internal surface of the basket. The soft cable then greatly reduces the transmission path of cable-borne noise, thus further reducing cable rumble. The ConnBox is made of the highest quality components, using Gold 3-pin Neutrik X-series XLR connectors and an ultra soft Mogami star-quad cable.
