Decora Wall Plate Insert, White, Dual XLR Male to Solder Type
These solder type Decora wall plate inserts are used to cleanly bridge between in-wall cable runs and their origin and destinations. This particular insert converts in-wall wiring for transmitting XLR audio to devices utilizing XLR style audio inputs and outputs. The back of the XLR connection is solder based so you will need to be able to solder your in wall wiring to the decora wall plates connections.
I haven't tried to solder the wires to the connectors as yet, but the wall plate assemble seems sturdy. I bought the dual male and dual female wall plates with the idea of making two male and female connector plates. This worked even easier than I expected, as the assemblies are a plastic wall plate with metal panel-mount XLR connectors. Just what I expected from the view on the web site.

The only criticism is the absence of a pair imbedded threaded metal grommets (as found on a brand-name insert plate) for attaching the finishing cover-plate machine screws, making for a more reliable structure. Instead of the threaded grommets, 2 rather sinister looking tap screws are provided in the place of more finished looking small machine screws. Can't have it all at this great price though.
