Wireless Shure SM58 settings?

Hi Collie,

Welcome to the Bose Portable PA Community.

I've got a wireless SM58 what's the best settings to have for excellent sound , I'm struggling to get one 

We can help but we need a little more information.

Do you have a T1 ToneMatch audio engine or T4S or T8S?

What other Bose equipment are you using?



Hi Collie,

Thanks for the added information.

  1. Connect the T1 to L1 Compact channel 2 (not channel 1).

    A balanced connection is preferred and will provide better noise rejection over greater distances than the unbalanced connection.

  2. Connect the Shure wireless receiver to one of the inputs on the T1 (e.g., channel 1).
  3. Follow the steps in the video below to set the gain staging (trim setting)
  4. Set the ToneMatch Preset to Shure SM58 instead of the ToneMatch Preset to Neumann KMS 105 in the video.
  5. Turn the rotary selector to zEQ and set all values to bypass.
  6. Turn the rotary selector to ParaEQ and set it to bypass.
  7. Turn the rotary selector to Mod and set it to bypass.
  8. Turn the rotary selector to Delay and set it to bypass.
  9. Turn the rotary selector to Reverb and set it to bypass.

Play some backing tracks and bring up the volume, so the tracks support but do not overpower your voice. 

Add the least amount of Reverb you can. Reverb pushes vocals back in the mix, so use is sparingly.

How do things sound now?
