Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Offhand, the 4 pin mic connector and corresponding pin # would depend on the communications equipment the Astatic was initially wired for. However, the color coding of the wires in an Astatic would be:

  • white - mic audio;
  • shield/blue - gnd;
  • black - NC or speaker;
  • red - NO or PTT;
  • yellow - not normally used.
Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.

PR20 mic has three colored cables inside.. red black and yellow. the yellow has lost its solder. despite this it still works. what does the yellow cable do, and which prong inside should i re-solder it to?


Two of the wires are signal (1 is + the other is -). The third wire is ground. The two signal wires will go to either side of the mic diaphragm. (looks like a miniature speaker). The ground wire will usually go to the mic body. The colors could be proprietary to Heil so I'm not sure what they are based solely on color. If it's an "active" mic with an internal circuit board then there is no telling.

Typically the red and yellow would be the signal wires, the black would be the ground, however, as previously stated, this can not be guaranteed if Heil uses a proprietary setup.

I am using pro tools 8 LE. I have a blue bluebird condenser microphone. the cable going into the mic is a male 3 pronged end. and the end going into my avid mbox mini is a normal ending (the ones that look...


The mbox mini is usb powered, wont work without power so your mac or pc must be powered on and connected. The blue led will be on when powered. Assuming you have the the appropriate cables, you want to make sure the condenser is plugged into the Mic/Line input. (Input 1 on the back of the mbox mini). All condenser mics require phantom power, so engage the +48V switch. Also make sure the DI (direct input) switch is not engaged. The input gain control is located on the front of the mbox... There needs to be speakers connected to the 1/4 output jacks on the back of the mbox or headphones on the front for sound output. Use the large knob for monitor volume control.
In protools: Create a Stereo Master fader track
Create a mono audio track
Set the input of the mono audio track to Mic/Line 1 Arm the track for record (click & make sure the R is red)
You should getting levels and sound output from your condenser.

I just ordered the mic, but im not sure what to plug it into... or what kind of cables it needs. can you help me?


You'll need a pre-amplifier, mixer board, or audio interface which can supply "phantom power" to the mic. The mic will not provide a signal without phantom power.

Next, you will need "XLR" microphone cable. These cables have three-prong shielded connectors on the ends, which keep electric noise to a minimum. You don't need fancy ones - the plain Jane store brand cables will work fine.

I have a superlu pra-h7a. I also have a cable that connects to the bottom via a three pronged male plug with with a female connector on the other end. i have not used this in years, and can't remember how...


You need to connect it to a mixer first and from there to an amp/speaker combo. This microphone needs phantom power and you can only get it via the mixer. Also, you can control the volume via the mixer. Depends on what kind of speaker you have (active or passive) you will need an amplifier. If you're trying to plug it into a guitar amp, it won't work without a mixer. Plug the 3-prong xlr male cable into the input of the mixer. The 3-prong female xlr end goes into the mic.

Hi i need to know the color code to assemble a new 3 prong stereo 1/4 inch jack for a shure sm 58 microphone. i need to know the order and color to reassemble the mic cable to a new 1/4 inch guitar type...


Unfortunately, different cables use different colors of wires. Thus, you'll have to see what colors are connect to both ends of the cables. Here is the wiring:

XLR -> 1/4 inch
Pin 1 -> Sleeve
Pin 2 -> Tip
Pin 3 -> Sleeve

Don't know the conections of blue or red


If we're talking about the microphone cable wiring on a low impedance mic remember this. Cheap mic cables with XLR's on both ends often have no standard color code to follow. True pin 1 is ALWAYS ground (shield wire) but the other two wires could be any color of the rainbow. Look for small numbers beside each pin of the XLR connector and make sure that pin two on one end of your cable, is also pin two on the other end as well....etc. Special note: The XLR connectors set screws have reversed threads and it's the same for the XLR male plug in the bottom of the microphone as well.....Glen

Set-up wireless karaoke Mic.


I can't seem to find any technical details on the output specifications of the karaoke mic, but IF it outputs in consumer standard RCA format (a cable with two ends, one red and one white - often seen with a third yellow cable for video), then you should be able to plug it into the back of the receiver without trouble. Simply choose one of the audio connectors in the back to function as your microphone playback system - I suggest the DBS connector, unless you have a satellite system already plugged in.

Connect the Red RCA cable to the RIGHT channel port on your receiver and the White RCA cable to the LEFT channel (Red = Right). Now, select the DBS (or whatever port you plugged it into) using your receiver remote control. Hit the "ANALOG/DIGITAL" button on the remote until "ANALOG" mode is displayed.

If you want to connect the mics to a Karaoke system using the same receiver, simply unplug the White RCA cable from the Microphones, and plug in the White RCA cable from your karaoke device. Now, you'll get music playing from one side of the speakers, and mic playback from the other side, simulating the karaoke experience.

NOTE: If the microphones do not have a RCA plug on the back, please post a picture of the reverse of the Microphone receiver, and I will see what I can do to help you further.
