Run 16 inputs and 8 outputs all over a two CAT-5 cables!

The digital snakes from Behringer are a terrific addition to your X32 purchase. Instead of running a thick, copper snake from the stage to the sound booth, you can just run two CAT-5 cables. Also the KBS16 runs on Behringer's own Ultranet protocol. You can plug your Behringer Personal Monitor system into the KBS16. You can even plug your Ultranet-enabled Behringer powered speakers into the chain. Complete back to front of house communication, all over two, easy-to-run CAT-5 cables! Your mic inputs are backed by MIDAS-designed preamps, guaranteed to give you the best sound possible.
