Thank you, Lee.  That makes sense now that I've looked at the back of the unit.

Another Question:  On the UA844+SWB/LC, it has RF Output A and RF Output B.  Since each of my receivers will only have one mic, will I only go from one of those RF out's?  For example, only the A side?

No, each receiver gets both an A and a B antenna connection.  This is a diversity antenna setup that allows the receiver to choose between two radio signals and select the better of the two.

Shure has a very handy accessory guide on their website.  You input which wireless model, how many receiver units, how far away antenna's will be located, and it gives you a list of splitters, cables, antennas, etc.

I just read that it comes with 10 22in BNC cables.  So that should cover me if I put 4 receivers on each distributor, and then I'm getting another Distributor, which will carry my other 2 receivers.  (If I'm reading this correctly).  And I think it comes with that fifth BNC cable, to cascade down to the second distributor.

Am I getting this correctly?  So....I don't think I'll need to purchase any extra BNC cables.

False. A consultant does not sell equipment. You are confusing a design build contractor with a real consultant.

You're absolutely right. I was confused.  :)

And I do appreciate the consultants that don't sell equipment -- their motivations are totally different than design/build contractors.

Stop confusing the issue with facts and logic!

Yes, you are correct.

I would think of it this way.
It (Shure UA844+SWB) comes with 10 short BNC cables,
you will use 8 of them to connect to 4 of your receivers (2 each, 1 A and 1 B).
You have 2 cables remaining to link/cascade to your second UA844+SWB which also requires an A and a B.

Actually, to be precise: The UA844+SWB comes with 10-22" BNC cables, and 2-6' BNC cables. It also comes with 4 non-locking power cables for the QLX-D series, and 4 locking power cables for the ULX-D series. The UA844+SWB/LC (which is $50 less) comes only with 2-22" BNC cables, the 2- 6' BNC cables, and the 4 non-locking power cables for the QLX-D series.

[The QLX-D systems come with 2 BNC cables each; the ULX-D systems do not.]
