Wireless Mic System for measurements
« on: September 06, 2013, 08:29:14 pm »

Looking through the topic lists I don't see anything recent on wireless mic systems for system tuning. 

I am looking for a system that has good response below 20hz.  I have found that my current Lectrosonics TM400a rolls off heavy before 50hz which makes crossover decisions in this area difficult. 

Is there anything out there with verified response a little lower?

My MacGyver rig using Line6 beltpacks is flat to at least 20, maybe down to 16 Hz IIRC. 

Line6 beltpack / receiver / Shure cable / Countryman phantom power box.  It's around $600 per channel.

The caveat is your microphone has to be happy with 18v. 

Is your microphone solid below 20 Hz?

You are aware that the lectrosonics transmitters have a selectable high pass filter? options are 35, 50, 70, and hopefully off (though the manual doesn't mention it and I don't have mine handy to test).

What is the decent wireless mic system to use for measurements with Smaart?  Do I have to spend almost 2K for the Lectrosonics TM400?  Anything a bit cheaper?

Sorry don't understand the second post.

Then maybe you shouldn't be trying out measurements you don't understand. The post was quite clear. It listed all the equipment an experienced measurement specialist uses for his wireless measurements.

Doug,
