Problem: Using G30 To Transform My Speakers To Wireless

Best Answer dboomer , 20 May 2013 - 08:43 AM

All Line 6 wireless systems are unity gain so the output voltage is the same as the voltage of whatever you stick in the input.

 

As long as you don't exceed the input limit of 6v p-p you will not need to make any special arrangements.  Line level from XLR jacks can exceed this (depending on where you set your controls).  Outputs from 1/4" unbalanced jacks, RCA's or 1/8" jacks is usually low enough to not exceed the limit. I would also expect output directly from a laptop to be acceptable. But you will need to check the specs for your mixer/laptop  and make certain.

 

The inputs to all Line 6 wireless systems is unbalanced and when using 1/4" plugs you MUST use unbalanced TS style (mono) plugs as the ring connection is for "bias" voltage to power microphones.

Hello everybody

 

I really like the specs of G30 but I plan on using it in a different setup. What I need, is a wireless system that takes line level signal as input.This way I can feed my self-powered speakers from my mixer wirelessly - at least one of them :-) 

 

My proposed setup so far:

 

[MIXER] OUT

1/4 unbalanced jack ----cable----- 1/4 unbalanced jack

IN [Fame DI-120 which attenuates and balances the signal] OUT

(XLR balanced) ---cable------- ????? 

IN [G30 transmitter] OUT

 

(signal transmitted wirelessly)

 

IN [G30 receiver] OUT

(1/4 unbalanced jack) --cable----- (1/4 unbalanced jack)

IN [BEHRINGER Eurolive B615D Active speaker]

 

as you can see, my problem is that I cannot feed the XLR balanced signal to the G30 transmitter in order to complete my setup.

 

Do you have any ideas? Am I too optimistic about this proposed setup? Do you happen to know other products of line 6 with similar sound specifications to G30 that could help me?

 

many thanks in advance

 

George

Why not just run from the mixer to the transmitter omitting the DI?

Thanks for the reply

 

Could I do this?

 

Is line signal the same as guitar signal?

 

what if instead of a mixer, I have a line signal from let's say the left channel of my laptop?

 

can I plug it directly to the transmitter??

They are illegal in the USA. I've tested a couple and like cell phones they don't really bother Line 6 wireless unless they are very close to the receiver (like a couple of feet)
