We recently did a consultation at a church where they were having problems with their system. They had two stationary lecterns, each with an AKG GN50E with the CK80 capsule. These required a fair amount of eq to get the necessary gain before feedback. They had a third lectern that they would occasionally bring out that had a Sennheiser MZH3072 with an ME36 capsule, which is actually specified as a shotgun capsule. I'm sure that's why this unit BLEW AWAY the akg with respect to gbf. Frankly, it sounded better, too.  I moved the Sennheiser unit to the primary position and recommended that they buy two more of them. FWIW, we stock Shure MX418 in our rental inventory, which work well enough for the price.

I have the newer A3 series Countryman in cardioid and a DPA SC4098 super cardioid. Both sound good though I find myself using the Countryman more often if not for anything else but the cardioid pick up to give those people who are clueless about speaking into a mic a little more room to stay somewhat in the pick up pattern.

An AKG 535 also works very well as a podium mic, I use one with a Neutrik XLR gooseneck, just not as sleek looking as a mini gooseneck.

Our #1 is still the Countryman IsoMax IV series.

Phantom power is an option from our console, 48V from memory.  We don't have anything that requires it so it should always be off.  However I did discover it turned on a few years ago I supposed it may be possible that the mic got killed that way.

I can make an argument for adjusting the whole system spectrum as there is a clear benefit every day, I can't make an argument for better mics we may use maybe 3-4 times a year when we already have mics because to most, a mic is a mic. 


What is your "system" makes, models, part numbers, pictures, ect.

As far as software goes....REW is free and not too bad, SMAART is something like $900. Any software tool is not just a plug and play make a pretty picture on your computer screen and your sound system magically sounds better. It takes a bit of practice to know what your looking at and what to adjust, yes I'm still learning!

1.  How are the stage boxes patched?
2. If the S16 is patched after the other one, is the led indicating "out +8"?

The outputs are bus sends. They can either be patched to local physical outs,  i.e. XLR,  1/4", or phono, or sent down a cat 5 snake.

What do you mean by TMI?
There are 62 definitions for this acronym. Please be specific.

As I read it in this thread, TMI is Too Much Information. As in the poster provided too much unrelated and unnecessary information.

In other news...

I remember a time when someone would be happy to get free information. This without regard for whether they needed it. They would happily take the information and apply it if they needed it and discard it if they didn't need it. I still don't understand the fixation with the bitching about it.

If it doesn't apply, just throw it away. No need to get butt-hurt about it, just roll on eighteen wheeler, roll on.

I'm still getting excellent results out of my Earthworks Flex Mic series hypercardioids.
Those were not in my budget but they are great! :D

How can I make the business more of a passive income source.

That depends on what you want out of it.  If you're just looking for a monthly cut of the profit, I'd wager to say you're in the wrong business if you want to make something substantial.  Or...hire a full-time or part-time (depending on the amount of business you do) office/shop manager to handle your day-to-day happenings, which would of course eat into your profit but also reduce your effort.  I don't depend on my business as my primary source of income, so thus I enjoy getting out and actually doing the work - that's why I'm in the business.  I also have a number of assistants I can hire as needed should the job or my schedule require it. 

I agree with David though - if you seriously need to play 250 jobs each year just to break even then something is wrong.  I only play a fraction of that each year but still make decent profit.  Every job is profit for me.  If it won't make me money I don't take it!  Naturally shop work and equipment purchases need to be factored in, but that's what your business plan is for.  You should know how much you can spend each year on inventory and then phase your purchases accordingly.  Hope this helps!
