Received my new 6600M last week and hooked up the hand mike with it came with and it worked just fine. Then tried hooking up the Electro-Voice RE320 to the 1/4" balanced jack and had no audio output with mic gain 100% +20db boost on and even tried with bias on. The only way I got it to work so so ( not hitting 0db on meter) was to run it though my W2IHY EQ plus and 8 band EQ. Does this RE320 really need that much more boost (preamp) for it to work properly with my 6600M? I did check out the new cable with ohm meter and checked good. Thoughts?
P.S. Hand mic worked well for the the contest over the weekend :)
p.s I am just about 30 miles south of you in Iowa City!
On my 6500, they are labelled MIC and BAL, where MIC is the front panel Foster 8-pin connector.
Yeah, crappy weather for sure!
Hi to you Rich! A lot of Flexes in Iowa, it would seem.
With the SM57, the boost on running at 85 mic gain, the level is correct.
It does feel a little odd to run such high gain levels in respect to an audio board.
This was done going into the TRS Balanced 1/4 jack.
