Why would you connect an amp up? The unit generates legal power as it is. Use of amps with more than 5 Watt inout is illegal. In addition the equipment has to be type approved by the FCC.

If the FCC catches you, they will confiscate ALL your equipment and levy a fine.

If you want better signals, improve your antenna... it is less expensive AND the improvemnet ALSO happens for the received signals as well !!!

How to connect SONY DYNAMIC MICROPHONE F-V40 to JBL EON 515 15IN PWRD SPKR yahoo

Several ways. Easiest way is to just hook up mic to speaker via XLR and make sure on jbl speaker switch is set to Mic not Line. ( for volume ). Ideally you would hook mic to a console ( mixer ) and come out of mixers main out (l/r) to 2 separate jbl speakers ( being powered no amp is necessary ) for stereo!

Does the Behringer xm8500 work on it's own, or do I have to hook it up to something? My daughter wants a microphone she can sing into.

All microphones have to be hooked to an amplifier to work. The socket at the bottom with the 3 pins in it is called an XLR jack. You need to plug an XLR cord into that and then plug it into an amp that has an XLR or 1/4 inch microphone input (using an adapter).

If she just wants it for looks, then no, you don't need to plug it in.

I recently got a (old) Realistic CB Radio and i bought a brand new antenna. I hooked it all up and wired it through the cigarette lighter. When i turn it on, instead of squelch i get a loud...

If the mic is not the original mic for the radio, it may not be wired correctly for the radio. This could cause it to make this noise.

Because the channel numbers do not come up, this concerns me. You may have hooked the radio up backwards. If this is the case you could have seriously damaged the radio. This is why I don not like cigarette lighter plugs for CB radios.

At this point, if you find you hooked i up wrong, even if you flip it, it will not work because you blew out a diode in the radio and it needs replacing. The audio chip may also need replacing if you kept trying to use it.

Make sure the phantom power supply is on and working correctly on the board. These mics need phantom power to operate.
