IEM rig
« on: May 07, 2018, 08:03:03 pm »


I am building an IEM rig: 6x Shure PSM900 in a rack, with antenna combiner. I have ONE Shure paddle antenna (do I need TWO?) and how do people typically transport the paddle(s)? Looking for suggestions.... anything other useful info I need to know?

thanks in advance!

You don't need two paddles.

As far as transport, I prefer an extra drawer in the rack foamed out to fit the paddle. Cable could store coiled up in the back of the rack.

Do you really have six people in need of mobility?   Keys and drums at a minimum can be on wired ears. 

Save a bunch of money and RF coordination headache.

How many channels (inputs) is your combiner?

1) You'll be better off using a circular polarized antenna (Sennheiser or PWS domes or PWS helical).

2) Purchase a high quality low loss coax (braid over foil shield construction), .4" OD (e.g. PWS S9046, Belden 9913F7, LMR400-UF).

3) Become fluent with one of the frequency coordination programs (WWB6 being the most obvious candidate).

It's the Shure PA821A so I believe it is 8 ch

I keep our Sennhesier paddle in the original box with it's own foam and in a rack drawer -

We keep our stand in another case but itís a shorty and sits on top of IEM rack.  Deploys quickly.  ...the lighting rig on the other hand, not so much!  Lol
