More details on the RapcoHorizon StageMASTER Series Snake

Product Research


Overview: The Rapco Horizon StageMASTER-series SMC1604FBQ-100 is a 100-foot, 20-channel (16 x 4) audio snake for running multiple microphone and instrument cables from the console to the stage or studio. The snake features 16 high-quality XLR connectors, four 1/4" connectors, and a sturdy stage box with silk-screened channel indicators (1 through 16, A through D).

Construction: The SMC1604FBQ-100 has the following components:

  • Stage Box: The 18-gauge steel stage box has 16 female Neutrik XLR connectors and 4 female 1/4" connectors on the top panel. The box features 3" x 11-1/8" sides and 2-1/2" x 6-3/4" ends. The cables exit the back end, and has a sturdy plastic strain relief. The stage box has four 3/4" diameter, screw-on rubber feet.
  • Main Cable: The snake features a 100-foot length of Pro Co Duralink DLAC 20 cable with twenty 24-gauge conductor pairs. The main cable has a thick rubber protective jacket.
  • Fan: The individual conductor pairs are color-coded into five groups: black (1-4), white (5-8), red (9-12), yellow (13-16), and blue (A-D returns). Each group of conductor pairs has a 4" plastic sleeve where they exit the main cable. This makes the individual pairs easy to organize. On the fan end, each individual cable is approximately 30" long.
  • Connectors: Sixteen of the individual channel pairs feature a metal REAN XLR connector with rubber grip/strain relief. The 4 returns have metal 1/4" male plugs. Just before each connector is a white plastic sleeve, silkscreened with the channel number. The sleeve is covered by a clear sleeve to keep the number from rubbing off.
