Q:We are making some changes in our choir area. To get the right sound, once installed, can the cable be lengthened without compromising the performance of the microphone?
Q:Will this work in a baptistry
A:Thank you for your inquiry. I'm not sure how these would be wall mounted. They are designed to hang from the ceiling. It is highly recommended that wireless microphones be used in a baptistery because of the possibility of electric shock. Any wired microphones mounted in a baptistery area must be mounted in such a way that they cannot fall into the water and also that they cannot be touched by anyone in or near the baptistery. We also recommend that you use a qualified sound contractor for this type of installation to ensure that it is properly installed in a safe manor.
Q:Can we use the U853PMWU UniLine® Condenser Hanging Microphone for the Choirs in a Church setting.
A:Thank you for your inquiry. This microphone is quite frequently used for micing choirs.
Q:Can the hanging condenser mic be used for a lecture live telecast
A:Thank you for your inquiry. Hanging mics are a good option, although I'm not sure I would use one that has such a tight pick up angle as the U853PMWU. I think the U853PMW with a 120 degree pick up angle would be more appropriate. You will pick up background noise, that is a given, although by engaging the low frequency roll off that is part of this microphone you can reduce some of this. This would also work for your instructor, but please note distant micing verses close micing (using the lav) will pick up more of the room sounds as well.
