  1. In addition to everything he has said, go read the Advancing the Room series of documents for tips to clean things up. One thing I've noticed a lot of people do and then not understand why they have dropouts is to place the Receiver in the rack with the PA and mount the router for ipad control of the PA in the rack. So you have a strong wifi broadcast signal right next to the receiver. I use an access point with a 100ft cable on a reel. When I set my PA up I extend the access point far away from the rack and the wireless receivers. I also, as mentioned in the quoted post, keep the 2.4GHz radio turned off on my access point and only use 5GHz for mix control.

    Guitar and Microphone Relay...

    You are looking to plug both in at the same time? If so you will need two units. If you are looking to use guitar and a mic on an either/or basis, the XD-V75 and the Relay G90 can pair with each others' receivers. So you could buy an XD-V75 with a handheld mic, and purchase the TBP12 bodypack for your guitar and switch between them as needed. Just set both to the same channel and make sure only the one you want to use is turned on at any given time.
  3. I left an otherwise perfectly good and comparable Shure GLXD16 for this reason. It was a great wireless with a great range, great sound, and I actually preferred the ruggedness of the body pack and rechargeable battery on the shure over the relay, but I was having line of sight issues with it being on the floor that my guitar player was not getting using a rack unit.
  4. Your whole purpose of getting a Helix Rack was to not have a cable to the front? I got a Helix Rack to keep the brain off the floor away from spilled beer and other hazards. I'd rather replace the foot controller after a mishap than the whole thing. I just ran a very short cable from the back of the G90 around to the front input on the Helix. I actually used George-L custom that I had from an old pedal board so I could cut it to exact length. It has an angle jack style plug so it can stay plugged even when I put the rack cover on. I DO wish they had put the main impedance switching input on the back panel, but I consider it a minor complaint. It certainly doesn't lead me to regret purchasing the Rack vs the Floor version.
  5. I posted this in another thread, but after seeing no responses checked and saw that the most recent post in that thread was 4 years ago, so I'm posting as a new topic. I was thinking about getting a pair of the p180 directional antennas. I know you recommend placing any wireless IEM transmitters at least a meter away from the Wireless receivers. Would using the external directional antennas alleviate this problem by moving the reception point multiple meters away, thus allowing me to keep my wireless receiver and IEM transmitter in the same rack, or is the proximity of the receiver and transmitter to one another still a problem even with external antennas placed at a distance? What about if an external antenna were used on the IEM transmitter as well and placed out of the field of the receiver antennas' coverage?
