Sonos port L/R unbalanced female RCA’s out to Behringer flow 8 -mixer/ XLR inputs male or female in optional. From mixer XLR out to QSC k12.2 PA speakers (a pair) pig tailed to Ks 118 subs (a pair). My Problem is converting the two unbalanced RCA ports to one XLR cable with the other end of cable connecting XLR connector plug. Is there a way to do this with good and correct results. The run is long and goes from inside my house 75ft to outside mixer then it runs another approx. 150ft to PA system. So I will be buying 14/4 premium direct burial cable for this and will have to add my own connectors to the cable. I spent hours online, trying to figure this out without any clear and cut results. They tell you how to do it. They have a conversion connectors for it, but no one will commit to saying that it works and is correct without losing anything. I just want a balanced good signal that connects when I’m done. If connectors are soldered and wired correctly is this possible? Is there a converter out there that (if needed) will work?

One way is to use a pair of these with an XLR Y splitter.

first off thank you for taking the time to respond and help me with my little mission here. Your help is appreciated. Having said that I talked to gentleman on the phone at Markertek (crazy coincidence) before I read your comment. Someone else I know had recommended the same thing you did. To call them. The tech I talked to recommended A “Radial J+4”what is the difference between what you recommend it and the J for? Obviously there’s a big price difference but other than that do they both do the same thing or is one better than the other? What I want to accomplish is to have my audio signal to be as clear and clean on the line going into my mixer as it is coming out of the Sonos port. Which is said to be a 24 bit signal. Can the cheaper connectors you suggested achieve this?

The Radial have an active stage to boos the signal the wires are just that, nothing in line. I can't tell you which sounds better in your application, something that you have to try for yourself.
