New SquarePlug SPXF Low-Profile (chopped) XLR's
« on: September 20, 2022, 05:14:16 AM »
Has anyone tried these?

They also have optional color screws:

The other 'off the shelf' chopped XLR's I have seen are both expensive and poorly reviewed. These look like they may potentially be better. Mainly, I'm interested in the female XLR's...when I make my own chopped plugs from Neutriks, the female ones are a pain to seal with hot glue and tend to let epoxy leak through, which ruins everything.

Have not, but looks well made.  Do they make a right angle version?  Only found Neutrik right angles on a quick search of the website.

It appears they do not, according to the manufacturer site. Which is a bit odd, since they make right-angle TS/TRS connectors for guitar pedals and such. I would be all over these if they were right-angle, especially at such a low price.
