Q:Can the U853r hang/suspend from some place other than the ceiling of our church?
A:Please contact our Audio Solutions Department at (330) 686-2600 ext 5000 or at firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance with this.
Q:how efficient is U853r ?
A:Thank you for your inquiry. We have thousands of these microphones in the market and customers are very satisfied with there performance. Pick up distance by a microphone is very hard to determine because it depends on many factors such as how loud is the source, how loud is the back ground noise and room acoustics. As for comparison to another manufacturers microphone, that is hard to do since I do not know their test methods for measuring sensitivity.
A:Thank you for your inquiry. This depends on a lot of things. The number of rows, how many per row, are they on risers, how wide and how deep are the risers. I'll assume 3 rows of 10, 6" risers, 1.5' deep. Place the mics 3 feet in front of the first row, 10.6 feet apart and aimed at the back row. In reality, I would probably lower to 7 or 7.5 feet above the floor and go with 3 mics, but if you only have 2 use the placement provided above.
Q:90 degree acceptance rating
A:Thank you for your inquiry. You will have to replace the element with the UE-UL. These are avaialble at Audio-Technica dealers.
Q:I want to use U853R for my school for drama and choir performances in an open stage. Is this microphone effective for this specific purpose.
A:The U853R will work very well for your application, provided it is placed and installed correctly. To get the best possible results with ANY microphone, it must be installed and placed properly. The 3:1 Rule of Microphone Placement is a great place to start. However, I highly recommend contacting a Sound Contractor to make certain that the microphones are installed properly, as to avoid "phase" issues. For more information on finding a sound contractor in your area, please visit www.audio-technica.com and use the Sound Contractor / Dealer Locator.
Q:Wiring diagram for u853r mic
A:Thank you for your inquiry. Please call our service department at 330-686-2600 option 4. They can help with this.
Q:How far above the stage can this mic be and still be effective?
A:Thank you for your inquiry. I would think that is too great of a distance to be effective. I would recommend that you contact our Audio Solutions team at 330-686-2600 ext 5000 and they will help you calculate they correct number of microphones and their placement.
Q:What is difference between U853a and U853r?
A:Thank you for your inquiry. The U853R operates on phantom power only, while the U853a operate on either phantom power or a battery located in an external power module. The elements are identical.
