    Microphones Digital versus analog wireless?

    Then you aren't looking in the right places. Digital should be much less expensive (apples to apples) as digital radios don't require much from the radio itself as the radio only has to send a thin stream of digital data as opposed to a big dynamic range of audio. There really are'nt the same...

    Purchasing wireless mic system - please check my list!

    The number (and power) of WAPs is a factor ... but how many channels are in use (and how many are really necessary). If all the WAPs are on the same channel it's easy to use wireless mics around that. But even that is not the limiting factor necessarly. New wireless technologies can use...

    Purchasing wireless mic system - please check my list!

    Available today and avaiable next year will likely be a different story. Someone was kind enough to lookup and list your "protected" frequencies Channel 30 (566-572MHz) and Channel 45 (656-662 MHz). Those channels in your area are exclusively for the use of wireless mics and cannot be used by...

    Equalizers

    Pretty much in complete agreement with Brad on this. I think you need to understand what you can and cannot do with an equalizer. You cannot fix time based problems. You can boost or cut depending on what you are trying to do, although boosting to fix acoustic cancellations will likely not...

    Purchasing wireless mic system - please check my list!

    I think you need to look further at that. The problem is not that there are devices there but rather what wireless you try to use there as well as the relationship Of WAPs to receiver antennas. If 5000 devices was the problem then they'd all take each other off the air. OTOH what will you do...

    Wireless Choosing a Wireless System

    You have a couple of unrelated issues that you are running together. First ... feedback and background noise pickup. Get a Crown CM311 headset mic. It's the only thing that will work, period. These are a very different kind on microphone and will cancel background noise as well as give you...

    how to soundproof a small club on a budget?

    First ... close all openings ... windows, doors, vents, etc. and keep them closed What kind of foundation are you on? More times than not the problem is "impact transmission". Think about putting your ear on the train tracks and hearing the train miles away, well before you hear it in the...

    Speaker wires shouldn't be longer than 60' ?

    It will probably work ... but it would work better with bigger wire. Having your speakers in parallel AND running a long distance work against you. I would suggest 12 ga wire for the lengths you plan on running.

    Wireless mics for $600 to $700 each

    I would strongly suggest you do your homework before any purchasing. You need to determine your "safe harbor" frequencies in your location and make certain any TV band UHF systems you might consider operate on these frequencies. You also need to plan ahead if you expect new system to work with...

    Feedback Issue - Need Urgent Help!

    Proper "Gain Structure" can certainly help with some things ... but it does NOT cause feedback. Don't confuse it with "Gain" which does cause feedback when it rises above unity level (in other words when the mic hears the sound coming back from the speaker at the same level as it hears the...

    Did you leave the "h" out on purpose?:lol: There are dynamic spectrum methods and then again there other dynamic spectrum methods. Our technology hops every 300 ns (that's right ... nano) whether there is something there or not. That's a might short dropout. But since we are sending a...

    Hi Mike Sorry ... here's a better link ... Federal Communications Commission's National Broadband Plan Action Agenda Just a little light reading;) The FCC has issued numbers of PN's (public notices) and NPRM's (notice of proposed rule making) directly to this issue. It is likely that the...

    That is correct ... but ... it has also been blessed by the President Statement from the President on the National Broadband Plan | The White House and of course the even bigger factor is the $$$. The government figures it's losing out on roughly $50 Billion with the status quo. Big money...

    "The FCC should initiate a rule making proceeding to reallocate 120 megahertz from the broadcast television (TV) bands." http://download.broadband.gov/plan/national-broadband-plan-chapter-5-spectrum.pdf page 76 National Broadband Plan ... a quick google search would tell you a lot more.
