Question about Shure SLX UHF Headset Wireless System Microphone

1 Answer


I have a problem turning the gain up on this combo. It is so sensitive that it picks up all of the background noise as well as what's spoken. It makes a hollow box or empty can sound out of the system. What can I do?

My Audio-Technica AT4033CL mic worked great up until recently. it has been cutting out and not picking up sound constantly, i have to tap it in order for it to pick sound up again, sometimes it stays...

The most common problem at these cases is a loose of the phantom power. Take a closer look at all the connections and check that the phantom power supply voltage is enabled at the mixer. If it's possible check with a multimeter that you have 48V DC at the 2 - e pins of the XLR connector.

In case of a problem or clarification or further details needed, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.

I dropped the audio technica at2020 mic and when i record it doesn't pick anything

Most likely it could be two things either a connection is not getting current anymore. my 2020s have went through hell and no problems. or the other suggestion is that your phantom power is not being sent from your preamp to the microphone (not to make you feel stupid, just a reoccuring problem on this board.)
Good Luck, Cody J.

Wireless Microphone low volume

The PGX1 bodypack has a switch on the side to set the gain. Make certain that switch is in the "mic" position. Otherwise, simply turn up the volume on your mixer.
