Two techniques that I use all of the time...Iwo Jima and clipping a lav to an officiant's binder..

Yeah, Iwo Jima is the way to go.  Although i do remember about a hundred years ago the first iteration of KF300s had plastic stand cups that would break EVERY time you did the Iwo Jima trick.  We replaced them all with metal and i haven't had an issue with that trick ever since.

The engineer clipped one mic to a folder the officiant used and a second to the groom. Turned out the mic on the folder worked great and the one on the groom was not used.

I tried the Iwo Jima method for the first time (still two people to do it safely) and it made getting the speakers up on (and off of) the poles much easier.

In my experience, 9v wireless products all have that problem. The 9v battery just doesn't have the capacity that the AA options do. The typical 9v battery has about the same capacity ( energy ) as a typical AA does. However, when you double the AA's up, you get double the energy capacity! Couple that with lithium energy densities and its no wonder a wireless pack can last 10 hours or more. 9v wireless systems suck; energy that is......

I am perhaps a bit braver than others, but I buy only lithium batteries for my wireless and I can get three whole days of show with one set of batteries if I keep the packs turned off when not in use. I can pretty much get a solid 10 hours of " on " time with the lithium batteries.

Omnis.  I only know 'cause they were mine.  :)

I actually have a pair of the Cardioid version as well.  TBH, the pattern control on them is, like most tiny mic elements, nothing to write home about.  The good news is that a skinny piece of tape wrapped around the port section of the element turns them into Omnis.  :)


Thanks Brian!

I am one who believes DI boxes are the industries little snake oil machine. I own $25 units that sound and perform just as good as ones that cost 4-5 times as much. I will say that in general, the dollar you spend does indicate the quality you will receive though, it's just that there is a break even point for what you get vs what you spend. To me, that break-even point is right around the $80 mark. Once you spend above that point you are paying for snake oil or some other black magic that isn't important.

Considering your level of experience and your query into DI boxes, I would suggest sticking to passive options. They are less likely to have a failure and are simpler to use ( no need for batteries or phantom power ). While it is nice to think a $150 passive DI box will work better than a $50 one, you would be surprised to find that just about any $50+ unit will honestly work just the same. Less expensive units are prone to failure if abused and used very often, but I have seen just as many expensive units fail as I have seen cheap ones fail. So I would stick to DI's that are under $100 and go with a passive one. That will do everything you need it for happily.

How about just picking up a used Pro2c and call it a day?

They are dirt cheap these days.

And yes, stereo is THE thing if you do IEMs.

I am planning out my next system and am playing around with EASE and realised- what is a realistic target SPL?  I am trying to spec out a line array- Likely either RCF HDL10A or HDL6A (opinions welcome). I want to be able to properly cover 100' out at "concert levels" for regional acts, but what should i consider that to be- 105db w/ 110db peak? What level do you run shows at?

If you have your heart set on a line array and have narrowed it down to the RCF I would suggest that you call RCF and ask them these questions. They were very helpful to me when I had questions on an improperly done RFC install of those boxes. But for the number of boxes you would need to get the results you are looking for there are some much better and less expensive point source boxes out there. To do what you want. BTW look for FIR processing in the boxes for this.

My favorite was the opening act singer who had to use her own cheap mic and foot pedal for her “sound”. Her sound consisted of cheap reverb which she never turned off in between songs so all her talking to the crowd was drowned out by reverb.  I ended up fielding complaints all set and pointing to her pedal.

Once while working a local reggae band, singer ran his mic through a couple of guitar pedals (reverb and echo I think) using barrel converters. Turned out he was rather good at working his pedals, to some pretty interesting effects ala UB40.

That looks pretty good. I need 1 48v for a mic and then 2-3 stereo inputs.

What are the differences between this and the Zed 10? The Zed 10 looks like it has more routing options? https://www.allen-heath.com/ahproducts/zed-10/

My Guess is the 4x4 input to the pc through USB.

What is your use case here, are you a streamer?

What would the 2-3 stereo inputs actually be, I'm guessing one would be a PC, what are the other 2?

It's difficult to determine whether the Zed 10 or i10 is going to be the best option or if a mixer is even the correct device if we don't know a bit more about your actual use. If all you need is what's mentioned in your OP then sure the zed 10 will do the job just fine.

I still want to know what the other 2 sources are out of curiosity.

I, too, use a pickup (standard cab, 8' bed, high cap). I've found that if I just unload it as soon as I pull in the driveway, no matter how tired I feel, I always feel better about it the next day because there isn't a big job hanging over my head that I'm avoiding.

But, then again, I've never rolled in after midnight.

Mine is a crew cab 6’4” bed with a cap. I can put 3 wedges on top of the subs at the front. In the back seat with the seats folded up and the flat floor down I got 3 of the EWI C040 series cases on edge & the SQ5.

I unloaded all the top stuff and things at the back today.
I can’t get the subs out by myself anyway. The EWI cases (we call them pull toys - labeled as PT1 through PT3) are loaded mostly with cable so again it is safer to have help pulling them out.

It would have been much easier if I didn’t need 6 monitor mixes.
