Hi Guys

I’ve been running a Studiolive 32 Series 3 for a couple of years in church. It a relatively simple setup with the console around 40 feet from the stage and I have an analogue snake to the stage. To date I have been using floor wedges monitors so I’m familiar with using aux sends to the wedges (mono). 

I now intend to install a couple of wireless in ear monitor transmitters and I would like to run them in stereo. I understand how to stereo link two aux mixe buses. My question is how to connect it all up. So, say I stereo link aux 1&2. I then use two XLR sends from the snake to get them to the stage where I want to position the transmitters. All good so far! 

Sine the budget is tight I’m using a cheap IEM transmitter which is stereo but only has a single TRS input. How do I get my 2x XLRs to a single TRS and maintain a stereo image?. The IEM system is from Gear4Music

Thanks in advance for any help.

The cable that 'wahlerstudios' suggest, will do.

Always keep in mind that the input on your IEM transmitter is an unbalanced stereo input. The outputs on your mixer are mono balanced signals. Lots of people don't know the difference...
