    Wireless Sennheiser dropouts - antenna booster or remote mount antennas

    Yeah, but my reply was more "meant" for the OP that if he had 300 or 500 series that was doable - sorry if that caused confusion. :rolleyes:

    Wireless Sennheiser dropouts - antenna booster or remote mount antennas

    Wouldn't be an issue at all if the OP has units that feature remote control software. If he has the 300 or 500 that is certainly doable.

    Wireless Sennheiser dropouts - antenna booster or remote mount antennas

    Try moving the antenna closer to the stage. 100' seems like a long way to rely on the receivers to get a good strong signal from the transmitters. I know they advertise (300-500' line of site) but I would no rely on that. The farther away from the transmitters, the more chance to interfering...

    Shure | Axient Wireless Microphone Systems | AXT400 Dual Channel Receiver :) Need I say more? I can't seem to find a price tag -- not that I could afford it if they did. This dual channel monster tunes from 470-698MHz with on receiver and features a computer program that continually scans the...

    Setting up AT 3000 series?

    The AKG 4500's are a very nice piece of equipment, that is for certain - 'If I where a rich man' hahaha :-). AKG does not seem to have as large of a following as Sennehiser and Shure in the Theatre world though. Don't know why.

    Wireless Mic Hunting

    What devices operate in the 915MHz band anyway? I mean, if the Sabine now has the option for that frequency range, it might just work for some users more than the 2.4GHz band. I know some cordless phones operate in that band -- but I don't think Wifi or Bluetooth does, which IMHO are probably...

    Yes, the Sabin Wireless SWM series operates between 902 - 928Mhz as well as 2.4GHz. http://www.sabine.com/resources/SWM7000/Literature/SWM7000-6000%20Brochure%20090110.pdf Only problem with these are that there is a maximum of 32 channels available to use considering no other interference. The...

    While I agree with Don Boomer on the fact that you cannot really tell where the TV band will be in 8 years -- I do not agree that your only option to is look outside the TV band. The only option outside the TV band right now is Wifi (2.4GHz). The problem with Wifi band is that every device...

    Wireless Mic Hunting

    I'm not expert by any means, and wireless is still somewhat new territory for me as well - but I do know enough to make some general suggestions: > First off, you need to get a frequency coordination for your area. This is very important as it will tell you what channels it is likely you can...

    2 week vs 1 week performance run

    Yeah, IATSE in this town (Bloomington) has very good rates for the production companies. The local road-house (3,000 seat university auditorium) that brings in touring shows has their basic stage hand rate at $19/hour -- although there are more specialized job classes there (riggers, flyment...

    Setting up AT 3000 series?

    We could use course use the AEW-DA550C & AEW-DA660D distros -- but only if we use only C and D band. Problem is, AT's new I band has the most supported channels in our are according to AT's software frequency finder. Although, I don't know how much to trust AT's software. I entered two separate...

    Setting up AT 3000 series?

    This topic was originally started in the GALAXY DHT thread but I figure it should be moved as the subject has switched to the AT 3000 series. In any case -- I am considering the AT 3000 series for our wireless needs. We would like to end up with a 16 channel system - but we would like to build...

    2 week vs 1 week performance run

    There terms in the contract read: Stage Labor It is understood and agreed that management for some events will use non-union or voluntary stagehands. The Lessee and the Technical Director and/or union representative will discuss the number of union hands and volunteer hands that will be...

    Galaxy DHT-QUAD

    It might also be better and cleaner to run 8 in D and 8 in C band and use the AEW-DA660D splitter. It seems to have a much cleaner "pass-through" - only needing 4 to run all 16 receivers and cleaner cabling. I dunno... :neutral: Is there an advantage to the AEW-DA660D? Also just found this...

    Galaxy DHT-QUAD

    How about the AT systems? I found that the 3000 series is fairly cheap (really not much more than the Galaxy units). It seems we should be able to get 16 channels in their 3 available bands. It seems that we should be able to tether up to 16 units together with 1 set of antenna's by following...
