wireless mic feedback

I'm using a shure wireless mic with the L1 compact and getting a ton of feedback. Tried repositioning the L1C but no luck. Any suggestions?

Hi LowG, and a warm welcome to the forum from me, too. If you could give us more information regarding your system we may be able to give more precise advice/tips as to finding a way to reduce the feedback problem. Which Shure wireless microphone model are you using? This information will let us know which directionality (polar pattern) the microphone has (directionality means from which side/s the microphone actually hears sound. Omnidirectional means that it receives sound from all sides...

Hi LowG, Thank you for joining the Forum. Is your Shure wireless microphone hand-held or something that you clip to your clothing or wear on your head? Here are some general tips for dealing with Microphone Feedback. Does that help? ST

Re: wireless mic feedback

hello it depends on capsule, You use. A Headset with almost 360° is more liable to feedbacks than a hyper-cardiodid Mic. May be a higher distance to the Array will reduce the feedbacks

Hi LowG, thanks for the information regarding the microphone. Is this the one we're talking about? http://cdn.shure.com/specifica...cification_Sheet.pdf If so I've had a look at the specs for it. The polar pattern is cardioid (they say it's unidirectional but the cardioid pattern will probably not be able to reject enough of the signal from the loudspeaker to be feedback free when standing in front of it.

Thank you for the information. I just bought a Shure PGA31. I hope that will help. I've tried moving the L1C. It is really odd because it happens more with one presenter than others. I tried turning down the tone but it got very basey. Oh the mic in this case is only used for speaking. When I used a corded mic for singing -- no problems! Again, thank you for the information.

Hi LowG, I run a hire company where we use the Compacts & L1 Model 2's a lot. Headsets are always a lot more feedback prone than hand helds & when you use then with a rear mounted speaker like the Compact you're looking for trouble. A couple of things I can suggest: -The Shure WH20 is the dynamic version of that type of headset. They're reasonably priced & a lot more feedback resistant. -We often use feedback eliminators like the DBX AFS224, AFS2 or DriveRack. Not everyone likes...

Hi lowg, I suggest that you try the Shure PGA31 since you've actually go it. I have one and I've used it for public speaking with a Compact many times. It was fine to stand in front of the Compact as long as I was aware that I should not turn around and look at the Compact while wearing it. The feedback occurred when I as I was turning toward it or walking close to the Compact. It was fine as long as my head was between the microphone and the Compact. I also have a Shure WH20. I got it after...

Shure KSM9 anyone?

jdbassentertainment.com ·
Hi everyone, does anyone have any experience with this mic. I currently own the Shure Beta 87a, Beta 58a, 55 Deluxe, EV N/D 767a and Heil PR20 mics... I am looking to possibly add a premium vocal mic. I am thinking about adding one of these to my tool box (if it's worth it). Would I gain anything compared to the vocal mics I have so far? How is it on a loud stage? - If I get one I am thinking about getting the HS version... Hyper/Sub - Cardioid Any input on the Shure KSM9 would be greatly...

T1 Channel 2 stopped working

scottcald ·
I have a T1 I use for band rehearsals, sometimes gigs. We can put the 2 vocals and 2 guitars through it. Then I use the Aux out to one Compact and the Main out to another Compact. Yesterday, I went to set all of it up and channel 2 didn't work at all. All the other channels worked. I had a mic plugged into it. I've plugged the mic into other channels and the mic works, plugged other stuff into the channel (XLR and 1/4") and recalled the Factory Settings all to no avail. I don't even see...

Re: T1 Channel 2 stopped working

Nick-at-Bose ·
Hi Scott, I'm sorry for the trouble. You did a good job narrowing down the issue, and so it does sound like a hardware problem. The input meter shows the level directly after the trim knob. So if you're seeing neither the trim LED illuminate nor any input metering at all on that channel, then we'd have to service the T1. Could you give us a call at 877-335-2673 with the serial number? We'll set up service for it.

Re: Any ideas for neat cabling?

Seagullman ·
Hi ScubaBadger, nice to "see you come up to the surface for air" (I couldn't resist that one after typing your name) . I use black velcro for my cables. It also has the advantage that should anyone nudge my mic-stand and the T1 should become dislodged, the cables hold the T1 and stop it from falling. The way I do it is to route anything going to or coming from the T1 from below the T1 fastened with velcro. My Microphone cable is only 1.5 metres in length therefore has only a slight loop...

Re: Any ideas for neat cabling?

Seagullman ·
Just a thought here regarding the mic-stand and whatever you fasten to it. The higher you fasten appendages (T1, iPad etc.) to the stand including microphone and eventual mic-boom the higher the center of gravity is, which makes the mic-stand more susceptible to toppling over if nudged. You amy have already thought of this, but it doesn't hurt to mention it anyway.

Hi MakinMusic, Here are a few of pictures. Click any picture to read related comments. The blue velcro straps are barely noticeable under stage lights. All the cables are as short as possible. I have loose plastic loops on the microphone stand to keep the cables close to the stand without having to strap the cables to the lower portion of the microphone stand. This gives me the flexibility to raise and lower the microphone stand without having to battle with any tight straps. -- ST

Yet more great tips thanks. Not previously thought of leaving cables attached to stand, I'll look at that. I'll also look for extra fastenings for further down the stand.

Hi Seagullman Glad to meet you and glad too that you're not flying over me while I'm up for air. Thanks for the explanation and image, gives me food for thought. As you're not running another piece of gear fixed to to mic stand it's impressive and I will certainly take on board the velcro around the cables next to the T1 for drop security. I had someone knock the stand over a few weeks back (on thick carpet) and everything survived in tact. I'm going to see what I can do with a cable set up...

Any ideas for neat cabling?

Hi I'm using an L1 MKII with Tonematch - the Tonematch and an iPad for my music content fastened to my mic stand. The consequent cables (including mic / audio feed from iPad to Tonematch / and Tonematch to powerbase feed can sometimes look at bit hairy. Does anyone have any good ideas as to how to minimise the visual impact of these in a simple manner? Is there a "down the mic stand "flexi something" to feed the cables or specific cables that make routing easier / better? Thanks.

Great velcro idea Segullman: I like the idea of protecting the T1 with velcro on the cables in case the T1 gets dislodged from the mic stand bracket. I'm going to use that idea. Thanks, MakinMusic

Re: Any ideas for neat cabling?

The thanks should really be directed in ST's direction. The original idea of using velcro (especially as a way of giving the T1 more "hold" on the mic-stand) I adopted from ST about 6 years ago when I got my first L1 (a Compact). He's given a link to that thread in the Wiki by clicking on the pictures he's posted. As in ST's last picture (mic-stand in bag) I also have my personal mic-stand wired up and ready to go, with bracket-clamp always in place. Saves time at the gig. I actually have...

OK - so on the cables thing - has anyone seen a cable with what I'd call an optimum configuration for connecting an iPad / iPod to the T1 - something like a right angle black stereo mini jack to two black right angle 1/4" mono jacks? Struggling to find one in the UK. My microphone cable (made by Planet Waves) has a flexible (hinged) joint that when it exits the T! does allow me to bend it downwards and get rid of most of the snag loop. The T1 CAT cable is soft enough to bend and get rid of...

So - back to the cables mess - I've found a cable maker in the UK and having explained the problem to them they've come up with a blinder. Here's my new cable from my iPad... This now connects to my T1 with similar right angle connectors... and both ends are quality Neutrik connectors in black. I've explained to them that other folk here on the Bose L1 user forum are discussing the same issue with cables. They've offered a discount for the forum - which gives 10% off which I think is kind of...

Asked the makers of my mic stand (Hercules, USA) for a price and availability of the stand clips. They gave me the part number and told me I could not buy from them. I chose a UK dealer I've bought from before (Andertons, Guildford), gave them the part number and said "how much". They came back with "we don't supply these".... which I find strange as a Hercules retailer. Anyone else know where I can get them?

Yes 90° plugs are cool. I usually use them on my guitars, but for some reason not at the other end. They're also good for pedalboards. That way you can keep the pedals closer together. Keep the infos coming Dave as and when you find out something new. Tony

setting up a Peavey condensor mic with Tonematch & model II

I watched the setting of trim for mics, (thank you) but I need help in what do I select for microphone in the engine. My microphone is not listed. I do not understand the High Gain: Bright, Normal and how I might use them (if at all) or why I would choose Flat, Vocal zEQ? Is there a download for my microphone? I am singer/songwriter playing small live venues...just as soon as I leave my living room :)
