How to hook up in ear system to mixing desk

I'm mixing monitors at a local venue in town. I've only done wedges so far, but now I need to do in ears for the first time.

My question to you guys is: How do I connect the system to my mixer.
Normally a wedge goes from my aux send --> EQ --> Amp --> Wedge.

Aux's are mono right? So how do I connect an in ear system then cause they're stereo and have a left and right output?

Hope someone can answer my question. Any tips on mixing in ears are also welcome. I've read about it a lot for the last few weeks, but couldn't find an answer to this question.

Thanks a lot

aux send --> EQ --> Transmitter

Are you sure the IEM's are stereo or mono?

Guess you need 2 aux sends per IEM if they are stereo

Thanks for the quick answer.

I'm not sure if they are mono or stereo but I guess your right.

mono: 1 aux
stereo: 2 aux's

Thanks! Sounds pretty logical actually. Why didn't I think of it

Do some research on the transmitter too--it might send mono in to both channels and then you don't have to worry about balancing a second aux, which is kind of awkward.
