Default 2 Wireless XLR Outputs too close

Guys,
to streamline my Solo Rig..I am going to go Guitar AND Vocal Wireless. I have run in to a problem while trying to set up the System at home.
I am going 2 wireless into TC Play Acoustic AND 2 Wireless OUT to my little Yamaha Mixer..which has the 2 Wireless Receivers coming out of the Play Acoustic. The problem I have is that the 2 XVIVE Transmitters coming out of the TC can't fit side by side. They are a bit too wide.

What kind of socket are the transmitters plugging into? A combination XLR/1/4Ē plug?

They sell male1/4Ē to female1/4Ē extensions about three inch total. Thatís your ticket to having enough room for the xvive units.

Short XLR leads, same principle.

This is a common problem. Luckily this is a common solution.

Others have suggested using one short barrel XLR m-f extension (they do exist, for just this application) but I think they potentially put too much physical stress on the input XLR if knocked.

Sorry, I looked at my play acoustic and saw what you needed. Here you go! This will give you all the space you need.

We seem to be at cross purposes here.

I'm assuming you're using the Xvive U3 mic system for each channel for which 2 short XLR extensions would be appropriate. Is this not the case?

Shuffle, yes, that's correct. (2) Xvive 3, one next to the other.

I’m out. That’s it for me. They have XLR FEMALE TO XLR MALE EXTENSIONS.

Then we're cool. If you're not moving them round much (you're not) then some cheap XLR patch leads will be enough. I use Neutrik because I have them lying round.

Virtually all mic cables are XLR male to XLR female.

Talking about three inch patch cables, not 25í mic cables.
Thanks

I ran into this as well and found an inexpensive little connector on Amazon that did the trick for us - see photos below.

Here's a direct link to the connector on Amazon: CableCreation XLR 3 Pin Female to XLR 3 Pin Male Adaptor, Silver
