Pic is a little (by that, I mean a LOT!) dark.

Looks like AC plugs connected to Neutrik Powercon plugs?

Looks like something to be added to my practical jokes kit... :lol:

Hmmmmmm... Not Powercon. Definately XLR type. Powercon are Speakon with a 90 instead of 180 degree offset.

Important to note Powercon are solderless! Neutrik XLR type... ??? Don't think so...

Definately a joke.

Well since I built them, I might as well reply.
Malcolm is right, they are a joke! And yes, those are NC3MX and FX on there.
Note these are actually wired as follows hot to pin 2, neutral to pin 3 and ground to pin 1.

Enjoy.

P.S. The above attached pic is an unauthorized bootleg. :evil:

That's the standard AC to XLR pin config isn't it? Most damage with least chance of killing anyone...

You've got twist-lock adaptors for those, don'tcha?
