I would like the ability to quickly switch between monitors and listening to the house. @dmorrier Most IEM receivers should be able to drive typical monitoring headphones. I use headphones with mine and get plenty of level.
Yes, mostly the system works. One other issue I have not been able to figure out is one of the backup vocal mic signal (input channel 18 on the x32 board) is no longer coming to the P16s. It was mixed in to channel 11 on P16 outputs using Mix Bus 10 (on the x32) and the Sends On Fader command adding this backup vocal singer (input channel 18) to Mix Bus 10 along with one other mic. But the backup vocal mic doesn't even show green lights on the P16.
That is because chan 18 is sent to mixbus 10 post fader and the DCA mute is on (been there, done that)
There are no XLR cables coming to or from the X32 and S32. Only shielded Cat5 from the AES50-A port. Same for the House speakers and Subs. They only have signals through Cat5 - no XLR. The only XLR cables being used are going to two floor monitors.
If you want full 16 channels to your P16's and FOH (sub, Main LR) separate and still use Ultranet for both, you are going to have to run a second shielded ethernet cable (no ethercons required) from the X32 Ultranet port to the FOH speakers.
The Main speakers are Turbosound.
Are they iQ (eg. iQ12, iQ15, iQ15b, iQ18b by chance? If so in all likelyhood they are setup to receive their signal via Ultranet.
Are you sure you didn't have the "Mode Selection" on the wrong mode on the S16? The S16 will show up on the mixer as connected, however it won't work as expected. As per one of the manuals: " By using the CONFIG button and SELECT/ADJUST knob, the S16 can be configured to suit many different applications. The STATUS LEDs in dicate the current settings. By holding the CONFIG knob while turning the SELECT/ADJUST knob, you can scroll through all 10 configuration options. See the Operation Mode Chart for the routing details of each configuration setting. " I was on a show recently where the A1 had the DL16 configured incorrectly. When we went back to Config 1 everything worked as expected.

This includes the A/D and D/A converters as well as the analogue circuits.
