An assembly of cables or wires, often used to carry several channels of audio signals between two points, such as from the stage to a mixer. The most commonly used sn makes consist of several sets of balanced line connections, with a snake box at the mic end, fitted with the appropriate number of XLR-type microphone sockets, the long, large, multiwire cable on which the individual channels are carried, terminating in a large modular connector for connection to a distribution panel which is, in turn, connected to a power amplifier or preamp. Also called multicore or rope. A snake box is also called a stage box.
