wireless audio transmision to delay powered speakers

Nick Houweling:
what is the best way to send a wireless line level signal from FOH mix position to mains amplifiers or powered delay speakers. I have occasion with corporate events where only wireless mics are used and I don't want to run a multicore just to the mains left and right channels of the speaker amps. I could possibly use IEM transmitter receiver units, but I'm not sure the receiver would drive a large enough signal to the amps. I've looked at AV transceivers but some have an input sensitivity as low as -80db which would be very difficult to have a line level signal attenuate down to. Plus they seem awfully cheap?? So anyone care to share their experience with unit that can do this succesfully?
Thanks in advance Nick H

The short answer is IEM transmitters and wireless mic receivers - specific Shure and Sennheiser units can be used in this manner.  Try doing a search as the topic has come up several times (and kind of recently).  There are some good suggestions in those threads.

Also we have a forum here dedicated to wireless technologies and applications.  You can have a moderator move your post to that forum if you like, you may get more traction there.

Welcome to the forums.

To add the third brand, I have had no problem doing this with audio technica iems into qsc k's.

Thanks but I need line level out to the input of my power amp also which only accepts line level  as in +4db for maximum power.
Cheers Nick H

g'bye, Dick Rees:
So just use a small mix pad at the power amp to boost the signal if adjusting the amp input sensitivity isn't enough.  We all use IEM's for this and if you can't figure out how this all works, hire help.

I have used the output from Sennheiser IEM directly into power amps for passive speakers with no problems...
