Shawn D Posted September 13, 2016 Report Share Posted September 13, 2016 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!
