antenna distro question
« on: May 13, 2019, 07:19:30 am »

I have 3 racks of 8 Sennheiser wireless receivers.
Each rack has 2 ASA1 antenna splitters wires in a "criss cross" pattern to share the antennas as per Sennheiser's wiring.
I usually use 3 separate pairs of passive antennas, one set for each rack.
Considering that I already have active RF ccts in play on the front end of the receivers, would using another ASA1 and 1 antenna pair  to feed the 3 racks be workable or just courting more potential intermod issues?
Thoughts or suggestions ?

High quality, low loss coax of proper size for the length and a 3-way passive splitter.

I was hoping to use existing equipment but I will sell this idea to the boss.
Thanks Henry

Those splitters Henry linked to are $60 each. That's a $120 investment to eliminate having to set up, strike and ship 4 antennas and the associated cable. Even if the antennas and cable stay with each package you are still eliminating the set up and strike of the hardware and cable. Maybe you save enough time to mount your antennas in a more advantageous position.

All good points I will use to sell the idea of spending a bit of cash to update the RF kit.
