This is probably a dumb question. But I'd appreciate if someone with more technical knowledge could confirm such - I'd ultra appreciate it if someone could explain *why* it isn't possible. But I know that's asking a bit much.

I record with mics on stage a bunch and often end up putting my mics down low beside or behind stage monitors. But I was in a circumstance last night where I placed my A10 + CA-UGLY preamp directly *under* the rear of one of the monitors, to hide lights from band/audience (at engineer's recommendation).

Cue audio issues with the monitor that my gear happened to be under. Periodic wah-wah modulations in the low end that they couldn't seem to get a great handle on.

I'm figuring it was a coincidence but is there any chance any of the gear could somehow impact what's coming *out* of stage monitors in a negative fashion?

Could it be Bluetooth interference?  I've been hesitant to get an A10 for this reason, as my phone is always in Airplane mode during shows.

Sound comes out of the monitors, not sure what your " out" mean's, but thinking interference?? They r not wireless. Cable Interference?? , Not likely.  cell phones, maybe

I was about to write something like this when the post came up. Unless the monitors were self powered (having amplifiers inside the monitor housing) I cannot see any way your gear could interfere with that signal. The signal which would be running through shielded cables using 3 wire grounding schemes hopefully. The periodic "wah-wah" was probably feedback unable to be deduced or handled by the monitor mixer.
music IS love

When you get confused, listen to the music play!

Good question, something I've been paranoid about.

Side note: These aren't bad to have in your gear bag:

Do these stickers leave any residue that does not come off easily once you peel the sticker off?

There are quite a few brands on amazon that all look like the same product, so I don't know about the exact one linked. The one's i've used left no residue.
