Question about Sennheiser ME3 Microphone

1 Answer

Need a circuit to allow ME3 to be directly connected to a standard mixing desk. Adapter needs to convert signal to balanced at low impedance to allow long cable run.

I haven't tried it myself, but the ME3 is a permanently polarized condenser mic, so it doesn't need phantom power, and should already be giving out a balanced, low impedance signal. Have you tried plugging it in directly with adapters from 1/8" to XLR?

How do I connect Active speakers to my Denon 3805 AV receiver?


Your Genelec 1037C monitors are professional design with balanced inputs. Balanced inputs expect a low impedance signal with pin 1 earth, pin 2 hot and pin 3 cold. Because the Denon amplifier supplies a pre out for the front speakers (the first pair in the set of pre outs) at 1.2 volts and high impedance, you will need to convert the signal close to the amplifier with a stereo active DI box. Plug the pre out directly into the input of the DI with a SHORT lead and then plug two standard balanced microphone type cables ( XLR to XLR) into each of your active monitors. You cannot make a cable that is RCA to XLR by shorting pin 3 to earth to do this job properly. The inputs on your Genelecs expect a signal in the range -6dBU to +6dBU for rated output. A suitable DI box would be for example a Klark Teknik DN200. Hope that helps.
Cheers, Don.

WHAT IS ICP


An integrated circuit piezoelectric sensor or ICP sensor is a device used to measure dynamic pressure, force, strain, or acceleration. It contains a sensing element made of a piezoelectric material, which converts mechanical strain into an electrical signal, and anelectronic circuit to amplify this signal and transmit it to an external device.
ICP is an abbreviation of "integrated circuit piezoelectric", and is a registered trademark (no. 1,603,466 in the USA) of PCB Group, Inc., parent company of PCB Piezotronics.[1] There is a similar non-proprietary standard called IEPE, which stands for "integrated electronics piezoelectric."[2]
In an ICP sensor, the built-in electronics convert the high-impedance charge signal that is generated by the piezoelectric sensing element into a usable low-impedance voltage signal that can be readily transmitted, over ordinary two-wire or coaxial cables, to any voltage readout or recording device. The low-impedance signal can be transmitted through long cables and used in dirty field or factory environments with little degradation. In addition to providing crucial impedance conversion, ICP sensor circuitry can also include other signal conditioning features, such as gain, filtering, and self-test features.
The electronics within ICP accelerometers require excitation power from a constant-current regulated, DC voltage source. This power source is sometimes built into vibration meters, FFT analyzers, and vibration data collectors. A separate signal conditioner is required when none is built into the readout. In addition to providing the required excitation, power supplies may also incorporate additional signal conditioning, such as gain, filtering, buffering, and overload indication

With or without my indoor rabbit ears, cannot get any channels below 7. the people where i got the antenna told that i could connect my roof antenna to an adapter and connect it to the antenna input on the...


Hello
You heard is correct. Your roof antenna can be connected to your TV, after connecting it to a balancing coil adapter, usually called 'Balun Adapter" which converts the impedence from 300 to 75 Ohms. It can be bought for most of the electronic shops all around. Connect the antenna wire to it and then plug it to your TV antenna in socket. The stations will be very clear, and well defined. You may have to turn the roof top antenna towards the direction of the transmitting tower to get a well defined, ghost free image. OK.

I cant find the av jacks to hook up my dvd player


This model doesn't have any A/V jacks. Many low-end RCA models didn't include any special features. They can only pick up signals over the antenna input. What you'll need to connect your DVD player is an RF converter, which takes the audio and video signals from the player and turns them into a channel 3 or 4 TV signal that the set can pick up.

RF converters aren't hard to find. Radio Shack, Sears and Wal-Mart all say they sell them, and you can certainly find them online. Hooking one up is just a matter of connecting the necessary cable to the player and TV, connecting the converter power and setting the output channel. Then put the TV on that channel and you're set. Unfortunately, this will give you lower picture and sound quality than you get from a TV that allows direct A/V inputs, but it's the only option.

WHAT ARE THE BIG PLUGS ON THE BACK OF THE UNIT FOR


The 3 pin connectors are called XLR and are "balanced" signal outputs are intended for connection to a pro mixing desk.
Balanced signals sent down 2 core screened cable are less prone to pick up noise on long cable runs.

How do you connect the tv to get a usable signal from the antenna?


What type of antenna? It usually needs an impedance adapter between the antenna and the coaxial cable.
Is the antenna pointing in the right direction? If you're far away you will need a directional antenna set directly into the emitter if you want a good signal .
If you did both and you don't see something then maybe the signal is too weak - get an amplifier and put it between the antenna and the cable.

I have removed the push to talk button and replaced it with a volume pot but need a wiring diag. from the element to the pot to the XLR. Also, is it possible to wire this to convert it to high impedance?...


The impedance of these mics is around 180 ohms which means you would probably use a pot around 300 to 600 ohms and with an audio taper.

This is NOT a good plan from an engineering standpoint as adding impedance to the balanced mic can allow electrical noise pickup.

The only way to get high impedance is by use of a transformer or a preamplifier. You DON NOT want to run high impedance lines over any distance as they are more subject to noise pickup.

The transformer should be at the far end of the cable run from the microphone. KEEP the impeedance of the cable from the mic LOW until right before a high impedance input amplifier.

How would you connect a Roland Space Echo direct into a Behringer 2642a mixing desk? Have tryed all inputs/outputs with nothing. Could this be because the mixing desk has ballanced ins/outs and the Roland...


In order for this to work, you need what is called an "insert" cable. This will have a balanced 1/4" connector on one end and 2 1/4" mono-connectors on the other. The balanced connector is also known as a TRS connector (Tip,Ring,Sleeve). You should have "insert" jacks on the mixer. Place the balanced connector into whatever insert you wish to use (usually this is inserted into the main insert). One of the 1/4 plugs is for input, one for output. I don't know which is which for your specific unit, you will have to experiment. Keep us posted. Dan

How to connect acer laptop to philips tv to use tv as monitor


If your TV has a VGA input you can connect the laptop using a standard monitor cable. If the TV has component video inputs, you can get an adapter cable with a VGA plug on one end and the appropriate RCA plugs on the other.

Without these inputs, you can't connect the laptop directly. You will need a converter to switch from the computer's VGA output to a standard video signal to feed to the TV. Here is a website with a sample converter. (I don't know this site. It's just one I picked from a Google search as an example.)
