Are you using a 1/4 plug or an XLR connector with that mic?
Either way double check the cable.

I looked that mic up and to honest it may be time to put it on the shelf as a conversation piece!

What mixer are you plugging it into, does it have phantom power available?

What it this mic used for?

Electro Voice ASP-58 I think is what you may be looking for. Threaded rod that is adjustable and doesn't have a bunch of bells and whistles.

If you google it you will find photos out there of them.

Russel -   As I understand it, SIFM is a tool that will dig deep into the IM world and produce multiple system proposals based on some parameters input into the program.  I've seen it demonstrated and it looks like it would fit the bill.  As it was used in conjunction with WSM, I ass-u-me-d it provided tools and data that WSM would not.  I cannot really address what SIFM does that WSM does not, but Sennheiser supports both programs, leading one to question why.

As far as WWB, I've heard their IM discovery tools are quite good, and runs on OS-X.  I'm trying to determine whether it is the best MAC software to compliment WSM.

I'm still not sure I quite understand what you mean by "system proposals"; if you're looking to generate frequencies for wireless equipment that will try to avoid interference from intermodulation, WSM will do that reasonably well in-box. As I mentioned, I use Shure's WWB for generating coordinated frequency lists (even on shows where I'm only using Sennheiser equipment), largely because it's a tool I'm familiar with, it deals well with coordinating equipment from multiple vendors, and I've been consistently happy with the results I've gotten using its frequencies (also, because I don't do enough coordination to justify the cost of IAS). My (admittedly quick) testing suggests that WSM's calculations are more conservative than WWB's (which, as I understand it, are still more conservative than IAS), so anything WSM spits out should be workable, although you might get fewer usable frequencies from WSM than WWB given the same parameters.

My understanding is that this functionality (up to a professional standard) was not available when WSM was originally released, which might explain why you were seeing it used in conjunction with SIFM. We as an industry aren't exactly fast to update (I think there are still copies of Sennheiser's Multimon out on the road with touring Broadway shows right now; they were using it on a tour I did local work on last year, anyway), so Sennheiser still giving out downloads of SIFM is likely a courtesy to these "legacy" users. Incidentally, this "support" doesn't extend to updates: the last version of SIFM appears to have been released in 2006.

Wondering if anyone out there has info and hands on experience on how to change out the internal battery on a KT DN9848.  After well over 10 years ours has finally failed and all of the pre-sets have been wiped out.  Upon opening the unit up it becomes quickly apparent that the battery is not easy to remove/replace.  With almost zero tech support available from KT, and no specific info in the manual, we're at a loss for what to do.  Please help if you can.

Contact Jim Sawyer, hell know how to do it and if its out of your league you can send him the gear for service.

Have you replaced the battery with a known good one?

Yes of course, checked voltage, cleaned and conditioned (deoxit) the contacts as well.
It is giving a good solid signal level from breath but no detectable signal from voice.

Ken.

116L would be fine for something modern. I've got 15"s in a smidge under 50L, but they do need a bit of EQ to get flat in the bottom end.
Have another look at the B&C driver I mentioned to see what sort of thing you should (IMO) be looking at.

It's worth updating your WinISD - it looks like you're using the old Beta version. The newer one shows excursion and lets you apply EQ/filters.

Thanks Chris i've downloaded the latest version of WinISD earlier so i'll see what it comes up with when I input the B&C driver and also the two RCF ones. Thanks also to the other people that offered helpful advice but to those who were rude to me go maybe you could go and acquire yourself some ecstasy tablets so you start hugging people instead of starting on them.

I agree with the above statements. Your best bet would be to acquire a half dozen well thought out fixtures and have a band member's BF, GF, roadie, etc...  learn a little DMX programming and run your lights. You can get a lot of different looks out of a few fixtures if you do your research and make the effort for good programming. Unfortunately, even going the cheap route could run you $2k or more. You can run lights in an auto mode but lighting works best with a live programmer and that sounds like what your show will need to get the proper effects you want.

There's 8 ports on each sub with 4 ports being on each driver chamber (each driver is in a seperate chamber) and the inner dimension of each the ports is 180mm x 140mm x 395mm deep. I worked out that the internal capacity of each driver chamber is aproximately 116 litres which is tiny. Would the RCF L18P300 be better instead of the P400? The L18P300 has 7.8mm xmax.

In fact you have two other accounts. Three is too many. If you need help logging into your account, ask for help, do not open a new account.

Mac
admin

I tried both those accounts and it said there wasn't an account with that name so I figured they'd been deleted so that's why I registered again.

Yes I did have an account but I can't remember asking this question, I typed in my name but a message on screen said there is no account by that name, and if you don't want to help then don't reply simple as that, sorry.

I didn't say it was the same pedantic discussion. 

You want to compare the margins between generally equivalent gear or how to improve the gear you have.

You already have received answers from folks willing to indulge what happens when you change drivers and those of us who view changing drivers in existing designs a great way to burn money.

You can of course drivel on.
