  1. I'm in the process of configuring the the main rack for my band. I have three XD-V70 receivers I plan on mounting in the middle of a 14 space rack. I have several questions regarding best practices with regard to antennas on these units: 1. Would it be ok to mount the two antennas to each unit and have them all point inward toward parallel to the receivers? 2. Should I daisy chain them and have one pair of antennas out front pointing upward, yet not above the top of the rack? 3. What if I get some LMR195 cable and make some 6' extensions for the antenna pair and mount them up about 7'? 4. At what point do I stop playing around with these configurations and just go with a set of P180 antennas? Other things to keep in mind... I may have a wireless router in the rack operating at 5Ghz tied to the mixer. Will this affect the receivers? I'll also have a 2.4Ghz wireless DMX transmitter in the rack... again, will this affect the receivers?
  2. This particular outdoor 'venue' was one of your typical parks-n-rec flatbeds. They're a giant rectangular box with one side open. They LOVE to resonate lower frequencies! wwooooOOOOOOO!!!!! I needed a new capsule anyway since one of my XD-V70's failed. I replaced it with a Heil. Now that I have the Heil, a couple different flavors of SM58, and some XD-V70's I'll be able to report some real world experience with all of them.
  3. Last Summer headlined an outdoor concert in front of 5,000 people. From the instant we started the lead vocal mic, a stock XD-V70, had feedback issues. FOH could not seem to control it. When we went on break they changed out the mic for a wired SM58. We played the rest of the night without a single feedback problem from the lead vocal mic. HERE are some more thoughts on the topic.
  4. Hmm... I was looking for a more definitive range other than +/- 10%. For example, from manual specifications: Sennheiser EW100: 10.5 to 16 Vdc Shure SLX: 12 to 18 Vdc Reason I ask is because I'd like to get one adapter and to power 6 XD-V70 receivers. This ( http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003TUMDWG ) low cost 12 Vdc, 6A adapter will work as long as the receivers will accept 12 Vdc.
  5. The manuals state the following: XD-V70: 9 Vdc, 350mA XD-V75: 9 Vdc, 500mA I'm wondering what the acceptable voltage range is for the input. Can I use a 12 Vdc supply?
  6. To follow up with this topic, I picked up three used RPW112's. One is a little shorter than the other two. All three work fine with my XD-V70 body.
  7. I'm considering the replacement of the stock capsule in my XD-V70 mics with a Shure RPW112 capsule. I've read these don't quite fit right as the pins in the XD-V70 mic base don't come in contact with the capsule when screwed into place. Can anyone confirm this? Is there a fix for this?
  8. I run a number of XD-V70/V75 units into one pair of antennas. I plan on mounting a wireless router (ASUS RT-N66U) into an X32 rack mixer for wireless mix control. Does anyone know of any interference issues with running XD-V70's in a rack along side a wireless router? Should I run the router at 5 GHz?
  9. I'm thinking about moving over to AA rechargeables in all my XD-V70 mics and TPB12 transmitters. I'm concerned about fit. Does anyone have any first hand experience they can offer regarding which batteries to get that will fit properly and get through a minimum of 5 hours of operation. I'm considering the Eneloop batteries because they appear to be readily available. I'm also considering these PowerEx because of their higher capacity.
  10. I had a lot of trouble as well. I used a flat thin aluminum bar that I got from Lowe's, a hammer and some blocks of wood. Place the aluminum bar between the units so that it is in contact with the key then firmly hit the bar with the mmer to drive the key out.
