Im currently working on a show where we need a doorbell sound effect. We went out and bought a wireless door bell (director didnt want to run a recorded sound through the system for some reason....). The reciever/speaker is set down on stage hidden behind a plant while the transmitter/button is kept up in the booth for the SM to control. Anyway, the bell sounds just dandy when no one is talking, but when there is dialogue, you can barely hear it. So, I need a way to amplify the signal so it can be heard over talking/yelling. To make it more complicated, the director does not want to run cable behind the set so we can't mic it (including wireless because again they don't want it through the PA). My plan is to somehow get the signal to the aux input of this Anchor MINI VOX Handheld Pa System*-* Portable PA's- Complete PA Systems & Packages- Pro Audio- PSSL.com. Unless one of you has a better idea (I hope so!). What I have so far are the reciever speaker wires cut, stripped, and electrical taped to the leads of a 1/8" plug which will go into the aux input of the mini-vox. But so far, no luck, maybe the mini-vox can't pick up that small of a signal? Can any of you help me out?
