  1. Hey all you brilliant electrical minds. I just purchased some Shure WL 184 hypercardioid lavs to use with my Lectrosonics SMQV transmitters. I replaced the connectors with TA5F and tried wiring them up based on Lectro's "Simple 3-wire 5V" diagram using a jumper across pins 2 and 4. It worked but it had some noticeable hiss and required a lot of gain (about 35 and up on the SMQV) and was pretty nasal and lacking in bass. Then I found a wiring method on the Shure website that said to try just wiring up pins 1, 2, and 3 to ground, bias V, and mic in respectively. This provides the mic with only 2 volts and not the 5V that the Lavs prefer. This also worked and sounded better with less hiss and a fuller sound than the Other wiring but it still requires similarly high gain. I'm wondering, does anyone have a better way to wire up these mics to Lectro TA5F's that maybe supplies them the full 5V and might require less transmitter gain? Thanks!
  2. Hey guys,I am in the market for some wireless handheld microphones for AV hire use. Mostly corporate gigs at smaller venues and no more than (4) mics at a time. I've been doing some research and see a lot of negative comments from the pro community regarding Shure BLX. I don't know much about RF and was wondering if any of you all could help me understand if/why they are a poor option.Thanks!
  3. I'm sure many of you have been in the situation where you weren't consulted before a purchase, but asked for advice afterwards. See if you guys can see what's up here. Our athletic department purchased this UHF wireless system with the intention of using for mic-ing the referees at football games. https://gtdaudio.net/gtd-audio-2x800-channel-uhf-diversity-wireless-microphone-p10.html It's not a bad unit for the price. The bodypacks have a mute switch obviously, but the refs want something a little easier to mute/unmute when announcing penalties. This is where I was consulted. The GTD bodypacks use TA3 plugs, and for the life of me - I could not find an in-line mute switch that used the TA3 interface. (at least not one that wasn't exorbitantly priced) So, I decided just to find the mute switch I wanted and see if I could make it work with our bodypack and headset mic. I purchased the Shure WA360 which uses a TA4 interface. http://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/WA360 I found the correct adapters to get this TA4 mute switch plugged into our TA3 equipment, and not surprisingly, it does not work. I suspect the problem is with pinout. I have discovered tonight through a little googling that pins 2 and 3 are reversed when going from TA3 to TA4. So - what do you guys think my next step should be here. I have choir classes to teach this week and broadcasts to produce, so I don't have a ton of time to devote to this - but I would like to try and get this working by the next home game on 9/17. Braintrust - what say you?

  5. Hello Everyone, Just got back from getting Axient Certified at Shure out in the Chicago area. Was talking to some of there people about the uses for the system and was curious what people thought of it as a cart system or as a tool for some of the more studio driven reality tv shows. Also if anyone has any questions about it I'm more then happy to answer.
  6. Has anyone tried these? http://bit.ly/xejIP5 i ask out of pure curiosity, mac
