  • Microphone to mixer/amp hookup HELP!

    I'm trying to hookup 2 ceiling mics, each with 3 XLR connections. They are being hooked up to a Bogen GS60D mixer/amp that has only 4 XLR connections. How is this done? Do I wire the microphone as 1 XLR instead of 3?

    Provide a link to the mics, I can't see why a mic would have three connections.

      Here is a link to the microphone.

      I'm kind of thinking there is no need to have the cord break out into 3 XLR connections.

        It appears that you purchased ceiling microphone arrays, which contain 3 microphone elements. They are intended to be used with their own proprietary mixers that have DSP algorithms to enhance the use of their microphone arrays. You can most likely hook up just one of the XLR connectors that corresponds to the center microphone. You will also need to turn on the phantom power for each channel.

          Unfortunately I didn't pick them, but that makes sense. Thanks for your help.

              tanda4, I hope you could share some insight about the product once you tested it.

                from skimming this:

                I'm left with the impression that this product was designed to work with their mixers.

                  We use Audix M3's (they look to be similar) to ensure coverage for UC spaces. Typically, we'll use a BiAmp DSP to handle the processing/AEC. Based on what I see here, I think you could use these with a third party DSP if you had to.

                    Yes, pretty common in a conference room, used for audio conferencing and/or in conjunction with a video conferencing system.* A DSP like a BiAmp with AEC, as mentioned, would handle it just fine.* No need for anything proprietary, even though ClearOne would like you to believe there is.* On a side note, while ClearOne was once at the forefront of audio conferencing systems, they've been left behind in the last decade, at least.* Anyway, treat each of those units as 3 separate microphones, each needing a dedicated input channel of they're own.* So, 3 inputs for 1, 6 for 2...

                    Have*to ask, what is the intended use?**
