Wireless Microphone

I'm have a bit of an issue. I have a wireless Microphone, I'm attempting to use it with my tonematch. I have it hooked up to channel one with a 1/4" to a 1/4" plug. I can see the input light flicker as I speak but no vocal from the speakers? Yes, I checked the trim volume. The Wireless Mics are Best Media.

Re: Wireless Microphone

There could be three trim control settings not including other things that could keep you from not getting sound.

Is the trim up on the power stand?
Is the trim up on channel one of the t1? Not the volume or main volume. There is a trim control. Even though you see green led flickering doesn't mean the trim is up on that channel.

Are you using the remote? Is it up?

Is the blue mute button on? If it is turn it off.

Ar you getting sound from any other media input on the t1?

Re: Wireless Microphone

Aren't channel 1 & 2 1/4" plugs line level while XLR is mic level? So you'd need to use XLR into the L1 or a preamp, correct?

Re: Wireless Microphone

Wireless receivers sometimes provide line-level outputs.

Are you plugging the 1/4" from the receiver into the center of the XLR-combo input?
Do not use the 1/4" OUTPUT located below the XLR-combo.

I would check the Individual Squelch control on your unit to see if you are muted or reducing output before your connection to the T1. It looks like you also have an option for 1/4 inch or XLR connection... if you are using the 1/4 inch, try going into the 4/5 channel on the T1.

This would be my first guess. Make sure you are going into the input on channel one instead of output.

Next, I would plug the 1/4 inch straight into the L1 and see if you are getting audio there. I would also try a different channel on the T1. Another option is to try a different audio source into channel 1.

Once you narrow it down to see if it's a faulty mic unit, the T1, or the channel, it should be replaced.
