Many phantom voltage mics work fine all the way down to 9V.... There are even accessory phantom PS that use 9V batteries.

Sorry... I spent decades in the trenches, there are a number of factors other than the actual voltage.

Which is what I was about to post JR. Low phantom voltage MAY decrease sensitivity, but even that is doubtful. "Dirty phantom power could only be described as being dirty if there is an A/C voltage present. This could only occur if the power supply is not designed to provide proper rectification or filtering of the incoming A/C. In todays world 48v phantom power is no more than a figure and many, many boards produce far less than a true usable 48v. Also, one or many separate supplies for phantom power will make no difference considering that most mics requiring phantom power will draw less than 50ma.

In addition to the other boards I own I also own a Soundcraft Ui that has been in use for over two years. Like all of the other misstated comments concerning channel noise I'll put the phantom power statement in the same category as the "no headroom" statements that seems to be so popular, especially with people who don't own the board. There is not now, or has there ever been a real problem with the phantom power circuits on the Ui series boards.

Behringer shouldn't be considered when comparing anything to be used for real sound work. Anything could go wrong with a Behringer product at any time for any reason making any case vs Behringer a non subject. Cheap components make for cheap boards.

Rent a sub or drag your passive gear.  What if someone in the audience is thinking of booking you for a private event or wedding?  Damage to your brand could far exceed the cost of a sub.

Nathan,
I had a similar issue and ended up replacing my halogen lights with the LED lights at the link below. A little pricey but these lights are unbelievably bright, and the Doppler works perfectly. One of these on the corner of my house illuminates the front of the house and stairs (75') and the entire driveway (150'). Almost like daylight. Very well built also.

I had never designed a console. i took that information from one of the AES sessions i attend. i think it was Bill Whitlock from Jensan Transformers. he measure consoles voltage. as far as Voltage supply and Shielding of the console. and he find some consoles drop on voltage as you add phantom power use. and some even doesn't provide 48V to begin with.

Seriously... how many consoles have you guys designed...?

Hope my comments helped.

No worries Jeremy - that will teach me to jump in with a suggestion without actually making sure of my facts...

LOL!  Didn't mean to be a Debbie-Downer!  I do quite like those stands you mentioned, wish they came larger.  Your heart was in the right place.

I have plans to get another pair of ST-132's but will not be buying those bags again. Perhaps custom is the solution.

The soundcraft ui 12-16 (not the 24i) have been reported to have excessive noise when +48 was engadged.
that seams to be another issue with grounding of the transformer.

lack of voltage will degrade the quality of the sound and it should not induce noise. if i'm correct.

Debbie, I use those as well for mic stands when I only need a few (as opposed to the big case), but they are not long enough for the folded length of the stand Chris has.

Chris, looks like we're practically neighbours!  I use the same bags as you, and although I have nothing useful to contribute here (sorry) I too am interested in something better so I'll be paying attention to this thread.

My ST-132's are slowly chewing through those bags.  I don't use the handles anymore and just sling the stand over my shoulder but the bag still takes a beating on site and in the van.

Oops I just checked the length - I thought these were longer than that...I can get my heavy duty Hercules lighting stands in them and assumed... made an ass of U & Me..well -  me
..... sorry ... as you were.... nothing to see here.....
