Question about Shure MX412D / C Professional Microphone
So I'm at a clients office (auction house) and we recently setup a new auction room for them. We have a Bogen 35 amp and we purchased them a new mic (Shure MX412D/C) The mic is very nice but will not work. If I hook up the old mic also a Shure (570S) the setup works fine. I just cant seem to get the new mic to work. I have test it with a Shure MX418D/C and get the same result... no sound. Im I missing something?
Please help me out.
Sounds to me like you may be missing a phantom power supply. The 570S is a Dynamic mic. The MX412d/c is a Cardioid and requires a 11-52v supply over pins 2 & 3 in the mic cable. Phantom power is a feature of most professional mixing consoles(usually 48v). If you do not have a phantom power supply on your system- then you can purchase single battery powered units to insert in the link between sound console and Mic. For example: AKG B-18
Hope this helps.
