I have 4 sets of XD-V35, 2 are bodypacks and 2 are handheld mics.
I've bought them to be used in a very specific situation, a church's procession; the 2 handheld receivers are next to a moving speaker (battery powered); they're the source of the sound.
Then, I connect a line out of the speaker to one bodypack, whose receiver is on a further speaker, whose line out connects to another bodypack, whose receiver is on a final speaker.
(I can post a drawing of it if my description is too confusing)
anyway, the fact is that the receivers are always on the moove, and the transmitter/receiver location/angle is always shifting.. this, allied with a massive number of people inbetween them, causes frequent signal drop-outs. I've had this configuration with "analog" wireless transmitters (shure non-diversity systems), but those were all on older (now restricted) frequencies, and needed to be replaced. On the old system, other than the occasional drop-out when turning corners or when the recievers went too far out of range, everything worked as expected.
On this (line6) configuration, I got frequent drop-outs, even when the reciever was only a couple of meters from the bodypack transmitter, on a (mostly) open-spaced location (no buildings in a 10 meter radius).
I've just now, reading the forums, discovered the RF-1 preferred use for this situation, because, walking thru the streets, of course I'm going to be "bombarded" with rogue wi-fi signals from people's houses.
Aside from that, is there anything I can do to get better range? Is there a preferred direction that the transmitters and receivers can face in order to maximize the signal (because of better internal antenna placement)?
Where are the internal antennas on the bodypack, handheld transmitter and receiver?
Thank you all in advance!
