^ More sensitive mics would definitely help.  Sennheiser does make some high-sensitivity cardioid lavaliers (ME4 at 40 mV/Pa and MKE40 at 42 mV/Pa).  I don't have any experience with either, but their miniature omnis are quite good, and, of course, they are a pretty highly regarded manufacturer.  Maybe worth taking a look?

Thanks for all posts. But I definetly want to go for card microphones. Unfortunately all mics are omnis :(

Like I already said, if you like the CA-11's., than try the CA-14's.  They are available in both Cardioid and Omni and are far superior to the CA-11's.

The ca-14 cards are better yes.
The ca-11 omnis are better than the ca-14 onmis.

Really?  Huh, go figure  :shrug:

I tried my ca11 and had to add 40db gain. That was a very noisey record... It was a non amplified theatre

Are you recording at 24bit?  Preferably at a high sample rate...  If so, worry about the quality and not the volume that you record a.  If you are using 24/96, you could jack the levels in post and shouldn't hear any difference.  With my CA-1's I use the CA9200, and get no unwanted noise.  Ever.  What are you using for a pre?
Normal: Nakamichi CM-700's >> SD 744T (or) Sony PCM-M10
Normal: Crown CM-700's >> SD 302 >> SD 744T
Fun times: 3 Crown CM-700's >> SD 302 >> SD744T + 2 Nakamichi CM-700's >> SD744T
Stealth: CA-14c >> CA 9200 >> Edirol R-09HR
Ultra stealth: AudioReality >> AudioReality battery box >> Edirol R-09HR
Simple & Sweet!
