This is really strange. Several years ago I had bought some universally wired COS-11D's from a dealer and then noticed that they seem to be wired out of phase with some other universally wired COS-11D's that I have from a different dealer. I noticed the phase effects when holding them close to each other and listening to them mixed. (Could this happen when the white and black wires are reversed? I can not see how they are wired because of the heat shrink tubing.) Mostly I did not use the different phased mics together on jobs so the phase issue has not been a problem. And all the mics have worked fine on older UM200a transmitters and also some SMQV's that I have. But I have just this week purchased some new LT's and an SMV. The phase-reversed COS-11D's hardly work on them -- I have to turn the transmitter gain up all the way to hear a little audio, and of course, there's too much hiss and something is clearly wrong. But my older non-phased reversed COS-11D's sound fine on these new LT's and SMV. Has something changed about the wiring to the input connector on the newest Lectrosonics transmitters? Something that is different even from SMQV's that are about 3 years old?
Hey Guys, Thought I would share this crazy story. I was shooting a reality show for Much Music in Banff, Alberta and the director approached me the morning of with a crazy request (as per usual). He wanted to have the contestants start at the top of this hill and go tubing down to the bottom delivering lines. I thought it would be a great chance to try out my Lectro SMVs at 250mw. The talent was about 150 meters away at the top of the hill and I had to pull my 411s out of the bag to get the antennas higher up but as you can see from the picture, pretty much full RF the whole way down. Great work Lectrosonics!
