    feed back

    Purchased BP893-TH having difficulty getting this thing dialed in without getting feed back. Try to get good volume but very difficult. Any suggestions? Already using compressor and feed back eliminator. Still not able to get good quality sound.

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    What is the power module for?

    Do I need this for catching a speaker's voice?

    Answers

    Answer: 
    The AT8539 is the power module for the following WIRED Microphones
    • BP892
    • BP893
    • BP894
    • BP896

    The AT8539 does not (in-and-of-itself) supply power to the microphone; rather, if any (brand-new) microphone comes with a power module (including the BP893), then the power module is absolutely a necessary component for the following reasons:
    • First, it converts the 11 – 52 VDC Phantom Power into a smaller DC bias voltage, which is used to power the FET impedance matching circuit inside the microphone.
    • Some also provide a low frequency roll off.
    • Battery power if Phantom Power is not available (NOT the case for the AT8539, since it does not accept a battery)
    • They also convert the signal to the proper impedance, and balance the output.

    Again, if a microphone comes with a power module, then that power module is a necessary component. Phantom Power (which is 11 – 52v, and is distributed by a mixer or phantom power supply over a standard XLR – XLR cable) is still a requirement to use the BP893.

    These microphones are also available to use with Audio-Technica wireless systems. However, to order the dedicated WIRELESS versions of any of the above microphones, add a "cW" to the end of the title. The WIRELESS versions do not come with a power module, and run on bias voltage only (NOT phantom). The default color for these microphones is Black. They are available in Beige (add a -TH).

    If you have any further questions, please contact the Audio-Technica Audio Solutions Team:

    Does this mic come wired for EV mics?

    We have EV UHF microphone systems (our beltpacks are BPU-2). Is the BP893-TH available wired ready to plug in to this beltpack? We ordered a Shure because of the connection (T4), as recommended by our vendor, and it is evidently not pinned out to match because it doesn't work. We really would like to use this mic! Thanks.

    Answer: 
    Unfortunately they are not pinned out the same and we do not make a version of the BP893 for use with EV wireless systems.
