The SoundTools WallCAT is designed to transport audio easily and conveniently from one room to the next utilizing shielded CAT5/6/7 cable. Each WallCAT has an input and parallel RJ45. That enables audio to be sent from one room to multiple locations or from multiple locations to a single room.
Audio Over Cat5 Wall Mount
Send audio and data from one room to another using installed shielded Cat5 cable and SoundTools Wall CATs. These durable aluminum wall units fit standard 4" electrical junction boxes to provide easy conversion to and from Cat5 cable to four channels of XLR, DMX or COM lines.
Perfect For Studio Or Office
SoundTools is committed to the design and manufacture of professional grade audio equipment, whether it's used on a festival stage, in a concert hall, or in your office building. With the SoundTools Wall CAT, we set out to create a superior XLR wall plate for sending and receiving audio and COM through shielded CAT cables. Compatible with analog, DMX, AES3 and intercom signals.
No Soldering Required
Not all wall plates are created equally. Unlike other brands, our wall plates require no soldering to install. Every connection you need, including 4 Neutrik XLR connectors in front and 2 Amphenol RJ45 connections in back, come pre-installed and clearly labeled. Because of our commitment to consistent, high-quality audio and COM signals, WallCATs are designed to keep strong, stable connections. Our high-quality brushed aluminum and stainless steel mounting screws (included) are resistant to rust and most wear-and-tear.
Shielded Cable Allows Phantom Power
SoundTools Wall CATs require shielded (STP/FTP) Cat cable to function properly. They are compatible with 48-volt phantom power. Using several SoundTools WallCATs and our SuperCAT cable in your building installation will allow you to run four channels of clear audio and COM signals from one room to another or to multiple rooms at once. Combine with our CAT Box, CAT Rack, and/or CAT Tails for the ultimate audio-over-Cat5 experience.
Attach your shielded CAT5 cables in the input or parallel RJ45s at the back of the WallCAT8. Secure the WallCAT inside a compatible electrical junction box and install into the desired position. Attach your XLR cable ends to channels by selecting either input or output across four channels. Now you can run up to four lines of audio down a shielded CAT5 cable.
Pair with an additional CAT Rack, CAT Snake, or WallCAT to send and receive four lines of balanced audio.
