I have not personally tried the Crown mic, but I expect it to work (AE version). That said it has a very low output almost 30 dB below our supplied mics so it may not give you much output. You'll just have to see how it works with how loud your singer is.
If you want to use the dual Gator case I would recommend linking the antennas through the built-in antenna distro system. I'd also link a third unit as well.
The mic case is available as a seperate item now - HTXc Handheld Mic case 98-033-0019

Wanted to run the power requirements (3-9v provided by transmitter) by you ~as I am unsure what the v70 puts out~ obviously it only starts with 3v- how quickly would it diminish over time? We need the differoid design for a tour; the omni Line6 would not work, unfortunately... .cannot find a better/ different case than the dual Gator for purposes of storage/ pack + handheld/ battery/ etc... The third v70 system would be extra/ on standby in 90% of cases, but will be traveling with the Line6- branded (Gator) case for single system usage.is the sold separately v70 bodypack case available, also? if so, part# ___________Again, let me vote for a 6channel 2.4GHz IEM system that would be licence-free worldwide...MANY thanks!

I play big fairs and festivals and big stages opening for major country acts so I put the Line 6 XD-V70 to work, and as far as I'm concerned
Line 6 is above par in all their equipment. (I use 4 Relay 30 guitar systems as well)..Now if they would come out with a
personal ear monitor system so I can ditch my Shure PSM and use all Line 6 gear.
I actually have been using the Crown CM-311AE. It is the best mic I have found to work with the XD-V70..
I tried the Countryman, Samson and a few others recommended by the Line 6 faq.... Not one of those mics
had the natural fullness and noise cancellation that the Crown has...
I also tried the Shure headset that ships with all their HS wirelesses and it was actually the worse.
The headroom was also where it shined. The others would squel like crazy when the volume was pumped up and if I was out in the crowd
even the countryman was not impressive...The Crown is the way to go.... If you are doing exercise classes or Zumba or lecures then the
other mics will do just fine...In the live shows CROWN is the best choice.....Don't believe me check out Garth Brooks, Rascal Flatts,
Justin Bieber just to name a few that uses the crown...
When I was talking to Jay Demarcus he said that he and Joe Don uses the Crown a little bulkier than others but
really liked them.
Here's a soundcheck on a main stage the audio isn't great someone changes the setting on my Zoom recorder..
