• Virtually no setup time
• More permanent setup
• Greater flexibility to move to
different locations
• Greater security
1A. TO SET-UP ON TABLE-TOP
First, consider that the Redcat Access
should be placed within 7 feet of
an electrical outlet and on a surface
about 3-6 feet off the ground.
Next, find a location as far away as
possible from the teacher who will
be using the mic. The best place is
against the wall opposite where the
teacher will be speaking. If this is
not possible, other good locations
are along either wall next to the
teacher or in a corner. Avoid placing
the Redcat Access next to where the
teacher instructs. Putting the Redcat
Access in close proximity to the
teacher’s mic can result in feedback.

4. CHARGING THE FLEXMIKE
Before use, the Flexmike should be charged. It will take 8-9 hours for the
Flexmike to obtain a full charge. A fully charged Flexmike will last for up to 8
hours of use. If microphones are used daily, they should be charged each night.
When properly inserted into a cradle charger, the Mic 1 or Mic 2 light will glow
blue and the red light on the Flexmike power button indicates the battery pack
is charging. The power button light will glow green to indicate that charging is
complete and a full charge has been reached.
Replacement NiMH battery packs may only be purchased through Lightspeed
Technologies (part # NH2.4V). Do not attempt to charge with other battery packs.
They can overheat and expand creating a significant hazard and damaging the
microphone (this is not covered by warranty).
1. Plug power cord into the cradle
charger and then plug the AC
end into an electrical outlet.
2. Place the Flexmike into the
cradle. (Figure 1) The LED on
the Flexmike power button will
glow red indicating charging has
started. The Mic 1 or Mic 2 light
will glow blue. (Figure 2)
3. Hang the Flexmike on the lanyard
opposite the magnetic clasp.

cradle charger and put it on by
connecting the magnetic clasps
behind your neck. Adjust the
lanyard so that the top of the
Flexmike is at the collarbone.
3. Optional Accessories
2. The Flexmike will automatically
power on and mute when it is
removed from the charger. This will
automatically power on the Redcat
Access as well.
2. The microphone volume on the
Flexmike is set at the factory to the
mid point.
2. Set Up & Use /
Daily Operation
3. While speaking in a normal voice,
fine-tune the microphone volume
on top of the Redcat Access up or
down. Proper volume level should
be as follows:
• Your voice should be clearly
heard by another person on the
other side of the room.
1. Overview
• You should barely be able to
hear your own voice.
• There should not be any audio
“feedback” or squealing
outside of 2-3 feet (if there is,
turn the volume down slightly).

REMEMBER: This equipment
supplements the user’s voice so they

2. Determine the size and type of
audio input jack on the device as
many manufacturers’ products
differ in connector size and shape.
Many personal FM transmitters
require a 3.5mm to 3.5mm patch
cable (part# MSC3535, not
included).

USING THE MEDIA CONNECTOR
The Media Connector can be used as the primary volume control for the audio
sources you’ve connected.
1. Plug the micro USB end of the power cable into the USB port on the back of
the Media Connector. Plug the other end of the cable into the USB power
adaptor. Also, the USB cable could
be plugged into a computer for
power.
2. Connect the audio source(s) to the
Media Connector using the 3.5mm
cables provided.
3. Set the audio source volume to
provide sound through the Topcat.

4. Use the AUDIO IN volume control on
the front of the Media Connector to
increase or decrease the audio source sound level.
NORMALIZING AUDIO SOURCE VOLUME LEVELS
Use the Media Connector as the master audio volume control for the classroom.
When two or more audio sources are connected, you will need to normalize
volume settings by setting all connected audio sources to the same sound level
while leaving the Media Connector AUDIO IN volume control set to its center
setting. The Media Connector is an audio mixer using a master volume control
to adjust the volume of all audio sources at once. Use the following procedure to
set audio source volumes:
1. Connect the multimedia audio sources to the Media Connector using the
3.5mm cables provided.
2. Set the AUDIO IN volume control on the Media Connector to its center
position.
3. Turn on an audio source that does not have an accessible audio level control.
(DVD, VCR player)
4. Adjust the Media Connector AUDIO IN volume control so the audio level
playing through the speaker is appropriate for the classroom.
5. Turn off the first audio source.
6. Turn on the second audio source. Use its volume control to balance the audio
output to the same audio level played through the speaker as the first source.
7. Repeat steps 5 and 6 for the remaining audio sources.
8. Now, the Media Connector’s AUDIO IN volume can be used to increase or
decrease the volume level for all audio sources as desired.

Troubleshooting
COMMON PROBLEMS AND SOLUTIONS
• Confirm batteries are charged
each night. A blinking red light on the power button indicates a low battery.
• Confirm proper batteries are used. The Flexmike requires the Lightspeed
NH2.4V rechargeable battery pack. The Sharemike requires the Lightspeed
NH2APK rechargeable pattery pack. The Redcat Access uses the optional L14V
rechargeable battery pack.
• Make sure the battery packs obtain a full charge. A full charge takes 8-9 hours.
• When charging the transmitter, ensure the blue status light and the red charging
light turn on. The green light will turn on when a full charge is reached.
2. Set Up & Use /
Daily Operation
SOLUTION: Battery Check
3. Optional Accessories
ALL PROBLEMS: Most Problems are related to low battery power.
PROBLEM: Microphone does not indicate a “Ready” signal (solid blue or red light)
• Ensure the power button on the microphone is turned on. Once turned on, the
blue light should begin blinking.
• Power the microphone off, then on again after a few seconds. Wait for up to 30
seconds for the blue light to turn solid, indicating READY for operation.
1. Overview
SOLUTION: Follow these steps to ensure the system is ready to use.
PROBLEM: Low Volume or Feedback
SOLUTION: Follow these steps to eliminate low volume or feedback.
• Check volume level on the amplifier. If the volume is too high, feedback will occur.
Adjust accordingly.
• Check input volume level on the amplifier If the volume is too high, feedback will
occur. Adjust accordingly.
• Adjust the volume level on the Flexmike.

SOLUTION: Follow these steps to produce sound from Redcat Access.
• Confirm that the blue POWER light located on the front panel of the
Redcat Access is on.
• Confirm the microphone is powered on and linked to the Redcat
Access. The mic 1 status light will be green on the Redcat Access
indicating the microphone is linked.
• Confirm that the microphone is turned on. There will be a solid blue
light on the top of microphone to indicate it is powered on and
ready.
• Confirm that microphone is not muted. A solid red light on the top
of microphone will indicate it is muted.
• Check volume level of the Redcat Access. Make sure that the
microphone volume level on the Redcat Access is not turned dlown
all the way. Slowly turn up the volume level while talking into the
microphone.
• If using the optional L14V battery pack, make sure the battery pack
is fully charged. The power light on the from on the Redcat Access
should be solid blue.
TIPS TO OBTAIN OPTIMUM AUDIO
PERFORMANCE
• Speak in a natural voice. A normal conversational speech level will provide an
adequate signal. It is not necessary to increase the intensity of your voice—the
audio system provides adequate amplification (approximately 5 – 10 dB) above
ambient room noises.
• Avoid wearing jewelry that may rub or bump against the microphone.
• Mute the Flexmike during private conversations with a student, parent, or
other classroom visitor. You can tell the mic is muted when the light turns red.
• Recharge microphones each night. When recharged nightly, operating time
(actual usage) for the microphones will last through a typical school day.
