Can you please tell me the product/part number of that socket and where did you get it?
That is a REAN TINY xlr's and these are the ones I used:
There is NOT very much room inside, so you can not put the locking nut on, you have to use epoxy on the jack to hold it in place.
Next time I think I a going to use these ones as the nut is on the outside, doesn't look as nice but would be easier to install I think.
Also be VERY careful of the drivers in the DTXXX series as the tangs that the headphone cable is soldered to is also connected to the voice coil wires. Those tangs are just pressed into the plastic an will pull out breaking the voice coil wire in the process. Both liquidzoo and myself have to do a resolder of the voice coil wire on one of our drivers. We were lucky.
If you do use the TINY xlr's you have to make sure that the hole for it is below the little shelf that the driver rests on, easy to do as the cup plastic is very soft and workable.
I had a local Industrial Electronics supplier bring them in for me, RAE was who I used.
Since your in Canada, electrosonic also carries them if there is an office local to you.
The one with the nut on the outside would probably have to be ordered in for you from REAN through your supplier.
Edit: I also have a pair of the Switchcraft Tini Q-G's that I paid twice as much for and I don't like them compared to the REAN's.
