While I ́m waiting for cable CC-1-XLR-Y-BAL arrives  to connect  my Heil Sound PR40 to Flex 6300, I wonder if anyone knows: PR40 Equalization  profile exists anywhere? 

Thanks

George

I use the PR-40 and I think its personal and you have to create a profile to match your voice.
The PR-40 does have quite a bit of low end so you might have to compensate for it.

Default HM-Pro seems to do a good job for my PR40

On my 6700 I have to have 2 different profiles.  One for SSB and another for FM. Here's a place to start.

2 different ones for SSB you can use as a starting point.

SSB1: 0, 0, -4, 4, 5, 6, 6, 0
SSB2: -8, -7, -5, -3, 2, 7, 8, 0
FM: 5, 8, -1, 6, 7, 8, 8, 0

If you find a setting that you really like and you get good reports over the air, PLEASE POST THEM.

Good point on the FM profile. It is worth having.

Only if you use FM.  If you do use FM and you don't have a separate profile, it will sound absolutely terrible.

George, The 6300 doesn't have a balanced mic. i/p, so will the CC-1-XLR-Y-BAL cable work?

I'm sure a good balanced to unbalanced adapter will do the trick nicely.

Thanks Steward  for your reply to my question

One Thing I watch closely when I bought a product is customer service...and FlexRadio Customer Service is the best...I haven't  met Tim Ellison, but he`s amazing Customer Experience Manager.....Here is the answer to my question I sent to him directly:

"We made a grounding change to the internal mic circuit on the FLEX-6300 earlier this year that makes the input essentially balanced.  The ACC-CC1XLRY-BAL is the correct mic cable for the FLEX-6300 and the PR40 or PR781. "

Thanks Tim!!

All, I ordered an equivalent cable to the Heil one, that is made in the UK using quality components, but half the price.
Thanks for the guidance.
