In this podcast, David is excited to talk about wiring DMX!

How do you make it all talk together?  The simplest DMX system is wired with a daisy chain.

You come out of your lighting console and bring it to your first light and then you do it a 2nd time and on and on up to 32 times.

It’s important to always use real DMX cable for this, not microphone cable: Why Can’t I Use Microphone Cables for DMX?

You can run DMX up to 3900 ft and if you need more than 32 fixtures or more cable length you can use a DMX splitter.

David’s favorite budget DMX splitter is the Enttec D-Split
