Wiring X1-x2 sound devices output to ew100 transmitter.

Recommended Posts

What is the correct  way to wire the x1 output from sound devices 664 to a sennheiser ew100 g2-g3.

 

I am going to to minixlr 2 to ring, 3 to ring and 1 to sleeve, is it correct?

Yes that's the correct way to feed a line level signal to a G2/3. If you run into any sound issues then connect pin 3 to the sleeve also to make an unbalanced input to the transmitter.

Not sure combing pin 2 & 3 on the ring is correct. With the TA3 outputs I think you’d just leave pin 3 floating.

Here's what Sennheiser says about wiring a line input for a G3.

I think you should also tie pin3 on the TA3 to sleeve/shield. I've just been using the L/R outputs with Sennheiser's line input cables. When I've wired XLR to TA3 adapters, I've just done them number-to-number, as simply as possible and everything has worked as intended, so I consider TA3 wiring equivalent to XLR. The safe bet would be to find an XLRf to TRSm cable by Sennheiser and see how they do it, then just do the same thing with a TA3 instead of an XLR on the other end.

Been-there-done-that.. the SK-100 G2 Tx will work without grounding the plug tip. Howoever, the G3 input plug tip terminal must be grounded.  I would assume the same for the G4 SK-100 Tx..

Means ground the unused connection. Ground the Tip for line level feed, ground the Ring for mic level feed.
