Question Inuke Wiring Questions

I'm going to be building a Martysub soon and was planning on purchasing an inuke nu3000dsp to power it. The home I purchased came prewired with speakers and an RCA cable was run but no sub. The receiver, cable box, dvd player, etc are all hidden by a built in cabinet so no wires are showing anywhere. The sub is probably about 10ft from the receiver. I plan on keeping the inuke right next to the sub. Is it possible to take the existing male RCA and buy a female RCA to male XLR adapter and plug it in to the inuke? Are there any risks? Will there be any performance issues?

You don't need an XLR adapter for the inuke because it will also accept 1/4 inch. Get an RCA to 1/4" adapter from your local radio shack and you should be all set. That's how I have my marty and inuke3000dsp setup and it works great.

So there isn't a difference in performance between rca to 1/4 or rca to xlr?

XLR is good idea and benefits pro audio applications. But the whole chain from output to input must be balanced using XLR. Converting RCA to XLR accomplishes nothing to the best of my knowledge.
