So we're using suspended mics for the non leads in our play, they're the cardial mics that you can hang with a 15+ foot cord and a xlr connector, however the problem is they require phantom power. but that's a problem with the way our systems setup it's a two mixer sound system a PA system and a Drama System, if PA is on you can control either with the 12 channel mixer up on stage in the rack or the soundboard in the back 32 channels soundcraft, or if in drama only the 32 channel mixer works so people cant screw around with the system. in either case if you turn phantom on the 32 mixer board it doesn't make it all the way down to the stage where the mics are connected. our only fix we know of is to hook it into a small 6 channel mixer down on stage and have one output to the system. does anyone know of a way to fix this? perhapse we're missing something but we were told we could hook those mics in and they would work fine when we were trained on the system now you would think oh well just call the company and have them come out. well that's not so much an option neither me, nor the drama, or music instructor has the ability to contact them. the contact is through our building manager. who unless there's a fire under his ass isn't going to get them. he's told us for 2 months now litterly that they'll be coming out but they never call "him" since it's their job and not his apparnetly to do the calling.
