Thanks Kevin. I think that's confirmation that the simple "Y" can work - even though it might not be "best practice". Also, it sounds like, in your case, the band hauled everything in and out (XLR cables, mic stands, DI, etc.), and simply plugged into your House feed so you could mix the house. We are hoping to continue to ask the house to set up for us, and be able to use house XLR cables and mic stands, etc., but we simply supply our own mics and "patch" our IEM box in to get ears. We want to make our X32r / IEM box essentially invisible to them (other than giving them the wireless mic and tracks). Thus, we would not be giving them any mix.
Re the max number of inputs, yeah, I was afraid of that. I guess I need to figure out the least expensive way to get 20 inputs in a small container too...

For splitter and snakes for FOH, my vote would be to get 3 ART S8

Thanks Paul - and thanks for your help earlier on getting me going on the forum!
If we used an SD8 for the front line, could we place it next to the FOH box and run all of the vocal mic, crowd mic, and keyboard XLRs directly into the "IN" side of the SD8, and then take an XLR cable from the "OUT" side of the SD8 straight into the FOH box? (I want to avoid running another 8 channels all the way from the X32r to the FOH box, if I can.)
If so, again, now we only need two 8 chan 25' XLR snakes for connecting to FOH. Getting lighter all the time.
