        Thank your for your inquiry. We have not tested, therefore we do not support a version of this microphone for AKG systems.

    • Q:

      How to wire a BP893C-TH microphone to a TOA WM370 transmitter.

      Have a customer that wants to buy two BP893C-TH mics to use with TOA WM370 beltpack.

      Looks like the TOA only uses the tip and sleeve of a mini plug, so I assume component/s would need to be added inside the connector.

      • A:

        Thank you for your inquiry. If the Toa is a 2 wire configuration this probably will not work, or at least not well. The BP892C wires are:

        Copper color - Audio
        Green color - Ground
        Red color - Bias voltage

        You may need to contact TOA for their recommendation.
