Does G10 play nicely with other 2.4GHz kit?

Recommended Posts

We use a Behringer XR18 mixer and BandHelper, both of which use tablets/phones & wifi extensively.  Some of these are 2.4HGz units.

Can anyone tell me if a G10 is likely to wipe out my 2.4 tablet (or more than that) at about 3 feet away, with the router about 20 feet away and everything else in between?

I realise that the G10 won't be joining the network but that could be worse because the router can't tell it to shut up.  Also, the only thing ON a network which would be streaming data would normally be the router, not some 'rogue' other device in the room.

Thanks

I haven't used my G10 with it, but I've used my G70 with X32 while using my iPad on a mic stand nearby with no issues whatsoever. As long as you let the G10 do a channel scan by plugging it into the base, you should be fine.

I use G10 at church. We have an X32 with dedicated wifi router set up for Apple devices to connect and change monitor mix. We also have a range of wireless IEM packs and mics that are in the 2.4GHz range. I have NEVER had an issue in that environment in the year I have been using the G10. I always dock my G10 after all devices are up and running to ensure it grabs a channel that works well with all the other things running.

We have 2x G10's and an G30 all being used on stage alongside my iPad, for the most part I haven't suffered any real problems. but lately I have been experiencing drop outs with my G10 which I use for bass, yet the other G10 that is being used by the rhythm guitarist has been fine. It was so bad I had to switch back to a cable.

 

It is something I am going to asses a bit further and if no change, I will be selling one of the G10's and possibly buy an Shure wireless system or not bother at all and carry on using a cable.

My band has 4 G10s and a Behringer XR16 as well as a bunch of smart phones and tablets between us. We have played venues within range of a half-dozen WiFi access points and in front of crowds possessing dozens of smart phones, tablets, etc.

 

So far, the only issues we've had are a transmitter not linking up with it's base after waking up from sleep mode, and with a transmitter connecting to the wrong base after waking up from sleep. But these cases have been rare. So long as the transmitter is awake and it's linked up to its base, we've never had a problem with audio quality, pops, clicks, dropouts, etc.
