20" Discreet Modular Gooseneck with 5-Pin XLR Connector for External Control of Light Ring


Similar to the GN E Modules, the GN E 5Pin Modules come with an integrated connector with phantom power adapter. One special feature is the 5-pin XLR connector, which ensures that the extra-large LED ring can be activated and deactivated using a separate power supply, e.g., a Logic out from the AS 16 x 12 automatic mixer. The LED ring is extra large for enhanced visibility. Of course the GN E 5Pin also has the same features as all Discreet Acoustics Modular Series installation modules, such as a gold-plated thread for screwing on the capsule, integrated switchable bass cut, and extremely strong joints that will withstand the toughest kind of usage.

5-pin connector
The 5-pin XLR connector allows the audio signal and the control voltage for the LED ring to be fed separately.

Connector pinout:

  • 1. Audio ground

  • 2. LED ring +

  • 3. Audio inphase

  • 4. LED ring -

  • 5. Audio return
