I would honestly rather get rid of the external mics on this thing. I would never use them. Unless there was a way to take some AT853 (4.7k mod) and put them in that housing.

You said you could make a new backing for it to make it slimmer. How would you go about this. I am curious. You have peaked my interest a lot!

I did pull the trigger and order one of these. Looking forward to using it in a couple weeks time for my next show!

sitting beside the unit. pop off the rectangular rubber plug at the top

Any recommendations on how to do that without damaging it? Mine seems to be super glued. ;)

id use a small flathead and try to get under the short edge and pry up. The cap is kinda rubbery so you should be able to push it towards the center and get underneath it. I used a box cutter and it cut the soft plug

While you’re doing all this surgery care to take a multimeter reading of the PIP voltage?

I’m aware, I meant in regards to already having the multimeter at the ready. I’ve read the thread as it was happening, though I don’t recall anyone taking a measurement. Care to refresh my memory so that I don’t need to re-read 20 pages of posts?

Hi, i just bought it and am confused.
I use Church audio ca and batterybox.
When i select external Settings there is "mic in" and "audio in" to select. What shall i choose here?
And is the locut just a Base roll off or a hard cut of Bass?
