Question about Countryman ISOMAX E6i (E6IOW5BC2) Microphone

2 Answers

Popping over the house speakers.

When we use the Countryman in our church service we are getting a popping sound through the house speakers. We have tried using the flat and crisp response tips with no change. Just isnt as loud with the flat response tip, but neither is the pastor. No difference with loud speaking parts or regular talking. Maybe we have a setup problem. We are using a Shure Model UT1-TF as the base. Any assistance you can offer would be greatly appreciated.

Sincerely,

Has it always done this or recently started?
Try to determine if the popping is coming from the words spoken into it, or if you get popping from simply moving the mic and cable around. if you get popping from simple movement, there is a chance that the mic needs to be replaced. We use these in our church, and over the last 6 years I've had to replace about 6 of them...sometimes they go bad in the wire, sometimes inside of the mic. The wires are so thin, excessive use wears them out sometimes. Depending on the model countryman that you are using...I've seen them become disconnected where the mic. meets the wire...some can disconnect here beneath a rubber coupling...if you have this model, make sure that it is properly seated.
If there are no shorts in the mic or cable, and you only hear the popping while speaking into it, you may need to filter out the low end on this channel only (everything below about 120hz - 180hz)...and try using a wind shield to help control this.
Hard to troubleshoot without being there, but I hope this gives you a few good ideas.

    Are you replacing the mic and cable every year? I have an E6 that is giving my trouble I was going to replace the cable first. (because it is cheaper than replacing the mic and cable) I did not realize that the mic could go bad. thanks for the information.

The problem could be an RF issue. If it is..you can install a capacitor across the input lines and solve this. LECTROSONIC.COM has the capacitor, part number SCC330P and a wiring diagram. It will require some soldering. Also I would reccomend having a technician evaluate this and make sure RF is the problem. If the unit is brand new I am not sure what warranty issues you may have with soldering the capacitor in place. Good Luck.

2010 VW CC factory stereo amp popping sound


If the amplifier itself is making the popping sound I suggest you disconnect it immediately, as it could be an electrical short within the amp. If the popping sound is actually coming from the speakers, it could be due to a crossed wire, blown amp channel, or blown speaker. If you posses the technical know-how, you can test the amp channel and speaker by connecting a different speaker to the channel responsible for the popping sound. If the new speaker makes the same popping noise then it is most likely a blown channel. I hope this helps =)

Bose Companion 3 Speakers make a popping noise.


No solution i'm afraid. But i have the exact same problem. Terrible cracking interference. Unplug everything else in the house and they still crackle. Very annoying. Decided to buy a new woofer on ebay as that seemed to be the problem with possible faulty switch, but the new woofer has a different connection for the volume control. Incredibly frustrating. If you have any luck let me know. Bose want eighty quid to repair...

Double check your connections at the transmitter. Swap inputs to see if the popping moves to the other speaker. Popping usually means blown, however......

The countryman E6 mic caused a loud bang during use.


It appears that the "bang" was the result of a static discharge from the mic boom. I trust it doesn't happen again.

make sure that the trim (gain) isnt set too high on your keyboard's PA channel. it might just be clipping due to input levels that are too hot.

A little more info on our poblem


The problem may be resolved by placing a 330 PF capacitor across the mic's two input lines. With countryman you cannot access the mic capsule easliy so it is best to take the TA5F connector apart,( this would be the connector that plugs into the beltpack) and place the capacitor across the two lines. LECTROSONICS.COM has the capacitors and a wiring diagram to help solve this. The part number for the capacitor is SCC330P

Good Luck!

Sony Bravia XBR-2 32-inch LCD with popping noise problem


Has anyone heard of something like this where the cable box/service is causing popping sounds? yes & it is common problem. And is this something I should be concerned about causing damage to the TV's speakers? not at all. The Sony tech-support representative (over the phone) diagnosed it further to a problem not with the TV but with the cable box/service because there were no popping sounds when I played a DVD on my Playstation 2 that is attached to the TV. they are right that your problem is not due to tv. it is due to cable box/service? yes but not defective it reqires to change the way you have connected tv to cable.please call tech to get it connected in such a way so that you do not get popping sound when you you put off cable box.
