Thanks for taking note. The mixer is a Soundcraft spirit folio FX8
and the power supply and cord is the same as the SX12. The end that
plugs into the mixer is what I need. This is a problem on all these
mixers - you have to buy a complete power supply. There are 3 wires
and they can be soldered inside the power module. The plug is
rectangular about 5/16"x1/4". Its a cheap setup on an otherwize
quality mixer and yes it falls out too easily. My cord works but the
plug is damaged. If anyone out there has a bad power supply with a
good plug - I need it. I'll pay $15 ??????? for this cord.
952866 is the part number on the power supply. Be sure to email me
directly at:

They ALL crap out at this point, and Soundcraft want a fortune for the
PSUs. I hard wire them (yep, I know its a suboptimal solution) or if
the client absolutely insists on a removable PSU, I replace both plug
and socket with something better (XLR4M chassis and XLR4F cord IIRC).

I have an FX8 and am very unimpressed with the wallwart connector
((although I haven't had a problem yet). Seems way shaky, very loose
for a good solid connection. But it works so far. We'll see. Haven't
checked to see what Soundcraft wants for a replacement. Hope I never
need to.

Please tell me where i can get the (XLR4M chassis and XLR4F cord
IIRC)you mentioned. Is this a better option than molex connectors?

Any Switchcraft dealer will have them. Try http://www.markertek.com

Understand, though, that the shape and mounting of an XLR connector is
quite different than what your mixer has right now. You'll have to do
some cutting and drilling in order to mount the XLR into the case. Be
sure that you have enough room to do that before you go looking for a
pair of connectors. Do you know how to open the case and take a look
around? That should be your first step.

Digi-Key stocks them. Markertek video supply has them too.

I can't imagine anything too much worse than Molexes.
