Multiple Receiver Systems
For ease of set up, available frequencies are divided into three groups based on the number of receivers supported.
All receivers in the system must be set to the same group. To select a group, determine the total number of receivers in the system (channel count), and
then select the appropriate group.
Note: To maximize the number of receivers on-air, Group 3 does not offer backup frequencies. Group 3 should only be used in controlled Wi-Fi environments to prevent interference from unexpected Wi-Fi devices.

Note: If you experience interference, reduce transmitter to receiver distance and set all GLX-D systems to group 2, which is the most robust wireless group.
See "Tips to Improve Wireless System Performance" section for additional information.
Setting Up Receivers and Transmitters
Note: Before beginning, turn off all receivers and transmitters. Turn on and set up each receiver/transmitter
pair individually to prevent cross-linking.
1.Turn on the first receiver.
2.Press and hold the group button to select a group (if necessary) or if the group is already
set, press the channel button to scan for the best available channel.
3.Turn on the first transmitter. The blue rf LED will illuminate when a link is established.
Repeat steps 1-3 for each additional receiver and transmitter. Remember to set each receiver
to the same group.
Note: Dashes appearing on the group and
channel display during a channel scan indicate
that frequencies are not available in the selected group. Choose a group that supports more
receivers and repeat the set up steps.

2.4 GHz Spectrum Overview
GLX-D operates within the 2.4GHz ISM band which is utilized by Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and other wireless devices. The benefit of 2.4GHz is that it’s a global
band that can be used anywhere in the world, license free.
Overcoming the Challenges of
2.4GHz
Coexisting with Wi-Fi
• Repeats the most important information
such that one frequency can be taken out
entirely without audio interruption
If you plan to use Wi-Fi during a performance, turn on Wi-Fi devices prior
to turning on GLX-D and scanning for
the best channel. GLX-D detects and
avoids other Wi-Fi traffic by scanning
the entire 2.4GHz environment and
selecting the 3 best frequencies to
transmit on. The result of this is reliable performance for your GLX-D wireless system as well as avoiding Wi-Fi
transmissions which may be important
as well.
• Seamlessly moves away from interference
to backup frequencies without audio
interruption
“Bursting” Wi-Fi is harder to detect
as it is periodic; however, because
GLX-D repeats the most important
information, even bursts at very highlevels don’t have an effect on your
audio performance.
The challenge of 2.4GHz is that Wi-Fi traffic
can be unpredictable. GLX-D meets these challenges in the following ways:
• Prioritizes and transmits on the best 3
frequencies per channel (choosing from a
pool of 6 frequencies across the 2.4GHz
band)
• Continuously scans during usage to rank
all frequencies (both current and backup
frequencies)
Challenging Wireless Environments
Some environments are more difficult than others for
2.4 GHz wireless system performance. Additionally,
body absorption has a greater impact in the 2.4 GHz
spectrum, compared to the UHF spectrum. The simplest solution in many cases is to reduce the transmitter to receiver distance such as placing the receivers
on the stage with a clear line of sight.
Challenging environments include:
• Areas with few reflective surfaces such as:
• Outdoors
• Buildings with very high ceilings
• 3 or more GLX-D receivers in use
• Strong Wi-Fi presence
• Competitive 2.4 GHz systems in use
Note: Unlike analog TV band wireless which typically uses the same type of transmissions across manufacturers, all 2.4GHz wireless currently on the market use different
variations of wireless transmission. These differences make it more difficult to mix and match 2.4 GHz from multiple manufacturers successfully, as can be done with TV band
wireless solutions.
Tips and Methods to Improve Wireless System Performance
If you encounter interference or dropouts, try the following suggestions:
• Scan for the best available channel (press the channel button)
• Locate competitive 2.4 GHz receivers away from each other
• Change all GLX-D systems to Group 2, which is the most robust
wireless group
• Move the receiver to the top of the equipment rack
• Reduce transmitter to receiver distance - for example, place receivers
on stage with a line of sight to the front of the receiver.
• Move receiver further away from Wi-Fi access points, computers, or
other active 2.4 GHz sources. Recommended distance is a minimum
of 3 meters (10 feet).
• Disable non-critical Wi-Fi on computers, cell phones, and other
portable devices
• If you plan to use Wi-Fi during a performance, turn on Wi-Fi prior to
turning on GLX-D and scanning for the best channel.
• Keep the transmitter and receiver more than 2 meters (6 feet) apart
• Avoid heavy Wi-Fi traffic activities such as downloading large files or
viewing a movie.
• Avoid placing transmitter and receiver where metal or other dense
materials may be present
• Keep transmitters more than 2 meters (6 feet) apart - this is less
critical at shorter receiver to transmitter distances
Note: If transmitters are within 6 inches of non-GLXD transmitters or microphone cartridges, audible noise is possible.
• During sound check, mark trouble spots and ask presenters or
performers to avoid those areas
• If there is a known strong source of Wi-Fi and you specifically want
to use frequencies within that Wi-Fi channel, use the following
Group/Channel of GLX-D (best option listed first):
• Wi-Fi 1: Group 3/Channel 8, Group 3/Channel 4
• Wi-Fi 6: Group 3/Channel 7, Group 3/Channel 5
• Wi-Fi 11: Group 3/Channel 2, Group 3/Channel 1
2.4 GHz Frequency Tables
The following tables list receiver channels, frequencies, and latency for each group:
Group 1: Channels 1-4 (latency = 4.0 ms)
Group 2: Channels 1-5 (latency = 7.3 ms)
Group 3: Channels 1-8 (latency = 7.3 ms)
