Even if it was zero dB down, it would cause you no problems unless it fell on another frequency you are using! If you stick to vendor recommended intermod-free channel allocations you should largely be immune from self-generated intermod problems.
Last I checked, 6-10dB is a big deal. Debby, are you using a tool to determine your frequencies? If so, be sure to include wireless mics as well. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk HD
Debbie,Sennheiser has a free software program (for Windows or Mac) that will allow you to input your various devices and calculate frequencies for them based on the number of units, bandwidth occupied, etc. If your units have the ability to network together, you may even be able to scan the local RF environment to further refine the frequencies that are available to you.NorthernSound has a walkthrough video of the program and here's the official user guide.It would be good to get friendly with this software, and I think you'll find that you'll have more peace-of-mind at events when you know you've done as much as you could to ensure good wireless coordination for your gear.
Thanks Jordan…yes I think I need to do some research. I'd rather be prepared before and in case anything happens rather than be surprised if it does and unable to correct the problems……….don't like surprises like that!!!
Deb, I don't pretend to be knowledgeably in the wireless area at all, but I'd GUESS you will NOT have any of the issue outlined in this thread unless you run MANY/multiple sets of wireless devices.We have the following at a gig (tomorrow night is next gig) and not a lick of interference/crosstalk - I assume - because they are configured to all run on separate channels/bands:1 wireless mic on lead vox1 wireless acoustic gtr (G50)2 wireless electrics (G50's)1 wireless bass (G90)5 IEM devices.. (4*PSM200, 1*EM900).That's 10 devices on stage with no issues.. I don't know where the boundaries are and I'm not saying it couldn't or wouldn't ever happen, but based on my limited exposure and impression(s) from talking with local folks "in the know", you need some level of scale to occur. Is that 12 devices, 20? idk. We could get concerned, but we're not going to worry about it for now. We're also not likely to have any stadium gigs in the next week or 2
Steve, the problems begin when the 2nd transmitter is turned on. Just because you're not *obviously* stepping on your own signals doesn't mean that you're not creating problems.
