Audio Connectors & Adapters


Color-coded to allow instant visual recognition and designed to replace inserts conveniently,
Whirlwind Connectors combine quality with ease of use.

Chassis connectors are available with colored shells. The XLR-M, XLR-F and 1/4" TRS jacks all mount into the same D-Female hole punch which greatly simplifies layout and configuration of panels. They are available with heatstamped numbers or letters.

Inline connectors feature color coded strain reliefs and a unique labeling area. They are available blank, numbered or lettered.

For a small extra charge, Whirlwind inline XLR connectors are available with your logo laser engraved on the barrel.
Promote your company, ID your cables permanently and add that extra touch of professionalism.

Black is the standard color - BK. Other colors available are BL blue, BN brown, GN green, BY gray, OR orange, RD red, VT violet, WH white, and YL yellow. Part numbers are formed using the prefix, then the color, and the number sign # for numbered connectors. For example, WI3F-BL-# would be the part number for an XLR inline female connector with a blue colored boot, numbered. When you order these connectors there's a place on the form to explain the numbers (or letters) you would like - feel free to call for assistance or clarification.

Whirlwind Connectors Are Available In Numbered Sets

Upgrade or build your system with genuine Whirlwind connectors available in convenient numbered sets.

Large numbers are easier to see in the dark than small wire labels and they are laser engraved - they can't be rubbed off.
RJ45 CAT-5e Feed Thru

This is an RJ45 chassis mount feed thru connector that offers several mounting variations.

  • It can be mounted with the supplied metal escutcheon (pictured on the left)

  • It can be mated with a version of Whirlwind's MDSPL for mounting in any standard rack panel or box
    that's been pre-punched for Whirlwind or Switchcraft D-Female holes.
    (Pictured above, a Neutrik "D" size MDSPL plate is also available.)

  • Standard Whirlwind wall plates can be punched to accept this feed thru for direct mounting. $5.97 each

Neutrik Ethercon®

The EtherCon® Series offers both male cable carriers and assembled female receptacles.

The cable end offers a robust diecast shell as a carrier for RJ45 plugs.

Female chassis connectors are based on the current NEUTRIK® "A & B" Series
as well the "D" Series of XLR receptacles with secure latching system - a feature not found on other RJ45 receptacles.
Terminations are horizontal and vertical PCB or IDC, punch down. Color coding is available for both the cable carrier
and the receptacles for ease of identification.

NEUTRIK EtherCon products comply with Category 5 (IDC versions) shielded or unshielded and are compatible for use
with 10 Base-T and 100 Base-TX systems.
