What kind of cord is at the end of the wire coming out of the speaker on the right? The blue one, not the pink.  I don't know what it is or what it is for.

Cardioid... high-end microphones, mostly for professional use.

 

P.S. Welcome to Geeks to Go! :D

personally i have no idea what the connection is called so assume blair is correct when he says it's a cardioid connection.

 

 I don't know what it is or what it is for.

it's the control wire that plugs into the back of the woofer, and passes the signals from the 2 controls on the front of the speaker to the woofer to alter volume and balance.

 

:popcorn:

:lol: yes, that would be the proper name. :thumbsup:

 

An XLR doesn't have to be used for cardioid microphones, it works with any. It's generally considered a "pro" connector, and when I think of it, I think of cardioid microphones. The biggest advantage to XLR is that it has two signal wires and one ground. Which equals better quality sound with less noise. Because of this, you can't just connect an XLR microphone to an adapter, it has to be an XLR system end-to-end.

 

I'm not an audio geek, just toyed with getting good quality sound to match with DSLR video.
