Radial Engineering R800 8022 overview

  • 1Description

The Radial Engineering Catapult TX4 is a four-channel snake which allows you to route four XLR connections across long distances using Cat 5 or Cat 6 cable, doing so with little to no signal degradation. As such, it's useful in live-sound reinforcement applications, as it allows live sound stage techs to use relatively affordable cable to secure quality audio connections around large stages and venues. It's also suitable for system contractors, who can now utilize pre-wired networks to move audio throughout disparate rooms.

The Catapult TX4 gives you four XLR input jacks, as well as four XLR transformer-balanced through-outputs for routing both analog or AES audio to other compatible sources. You'll also note the two RJ45-type Ethercon connections. One is an output, for use with the RX4 on the receiving end. The other is a thru-put, and can be implementing in routing signal to additional Catapults. A ground-lift switch helps eliminate any noise issues on the Cat 5 line, while a steel handle provides easy transport, and four bumpers protect the Ethernet jacks and ground-lift switch from wear and tear.
