sanken cos-11d 1k resistance question

Recommended Posts

I'm using sanken cos-11d

I am using a lectrosonics smdwb transmitter

Like on the lectrosonics homepage
I wired with a 1k resistor
I have a question
I'm a beginner of a recording engineer so please understand

I am curious about why I need to do 1k wiring
What's the good thing?

And in case of not wiring 1k
Tell me about the shortcomings

At high sound levels, the 1k resistor reduces the distortion from 7% to less than 1%. The resistor provides large quantities of negative feedback which reduces distortion. This also reduces the "gain" of the mic but that is easily compensated for in the transmitter. I highly recommend the 1k (1k to 4k) resistor.

Without the 1k resistor you get an increase in distortion ..you can wire servo bias for lectro tx without a 1k resistor that wire (white?) goes straight to pin 5 with no resistor,  instead of going thru a 1k to pin 1..servo bias is the prefered method if wiring.. 

Going to pin 5 substitutes an internal resistor in the transmitter for the 1k, accomplishing the same distortion reduction. It is not universal wiring of course.
