INTRODUCTION
ver seventy-five years ago, Electro-Voice®
founders Al Kahn and Lou Burroughs were at the forefront of a
new industry – developing successful microphones to meet
growing demand – advancing microphone design with breakthrough
technology (such as Variable-D®) – and establishing standards for
acoustic excellence and reliable performance. EV was the first to offer
N/DYM® technology in microphones and we’re the first to offer
ClearScan™ for superb wireless microphone channel coordination. And
that’s just naming a few of our hallmarks…
O
From WWII to the first steps on the moon, from the first radio
broadcasts to tonight’s evening news, from the garage band next to
door to the King, from Knute Rockne to this year's Super Bowl, our
products have been there… And we continue to build on this tradition.

Electro-Voice® Live Sound Microphones
Electro-Voice® has long been a leader in the design and manufacture of
live sound microphones. Preferred by performers the world over since the
company was founded, Electro-Voice microphones have been seen in the
hands of the music industry’s greatest artists. Today’s endorser list is no
less impressive (please see page opposite) and includes performers from
virtually every musical genre. So, why have so many top-name performers
chosen EV microphones over the years? Let us explain...
Better Sound: The “Garbage In = Garbage Out” Factor
The bottom line is that no vocalist should go to a gig without his/her own
mic, specifically chosen to match his/her vocal type and music style. EV
engineers have put innumerable hours into developing a number of
microphones that suit various vocal types. Why? From the company’s
engineering department to its sales and marketing staff, EV is comprised of
real, performing musicians. They realize that the microphone is the first
step in the signal path and should represent the voice or instrument as
naturally as possible – because, after all, garbage in equals garbage out.
The purest voices are often polluted by poor or improperly chosen
equipment. EV is dedicated to maintaining the integrity of what the vocalist
or musician puts into their mics. No amount of equalization or processing
can fix what starts out as garbage because of the wrong mic. And whether
you’re playing a coffee house “open mic” or performing in front of 40,000,
you should sound your very best.
MICROPHONES
Choices – Why Settle for the Old Standard?

Electro-Voice® provides the performer with options for both vocal and
instrument use. From lead vocals to kick drum or guitar amp, EV has the
perfect mic to suit your unique application. Why settle for the old standard?
All mics ARE NOT created the same. For a list of performers and engineers

FREQUENCY RESPONSE
Hundreds of performers and engineers
asked us for this microphone. They
said: “Give us a mic that has excellent
gain-before-feedback, excellent rejection
of extraneous noise like cymbals, and
can really take the high-SPL world of the
metal and rap stage.” Our design
engineers went out to countless shows
and experienced first hand what our
customers were talking about… They
then went back into the lab. Hundreds
of gallons of coffee later, the engineers
emerged with a godsend: the N/D967.
Just listen to Static-X explain how the N/D967 performs: “The N/D967 was a real
problem-solver for us. Given the volume that the band performs at and the kind of
feedback rejection we were looking for, there was nothing that worked for us. We
then discovered the N/D967. Wow, we were impressed. In fact, you now see these
on high-volume stages around the world. This mic is a life-saver.”

The N/D267a/as both incorporate EV’s unique VOB™ (Vocally-Optimized Bass™) technology to
provide the performer with reduced resonant distortion at low frequencies. Critical damping of
the low frequency resonant peak has resulted in a microphone that replaces the “muddiness”
found in competitive models with greater warmth and increased vocal clarity. The increased
clarity permits greater working distances than other competitive microphones, and ensures a
clean, clear, consistent sound that “punches through the mix.”

The EV N/D367s features excellent gain-before-feedback and smooth,
controlled frequency response. The controlled response of the N/D367s allows
the performer or speaker to easily “work” the microphone for optimal
performance. It also features a cardioid pattern for enhanced front-area
sensitivity and acoustic rejection directly behind the microphone, reducing
feedback under live performance conditions. Additionally, the N/D367s’s polar
patterns are unusually uniform with frequency, ensuring superior gain-beforefeedback in live applications and superior isolation when used in the studio.

Broadcast / Studio Microphones
The RE20 and RE27N/D are the first choice of microphones for smooth and accurate
sound reproduction. Their unique and famous performance makes them a favorite in the
broadcast, studio and professional touring business. RE20 and RE27N/D microphones
were developed with EV’s Variable-D® design to ensure true and accurate response
across all frequencies without the up-close boominess associated with proximity effect. As
a result, these microphones have become the industry standard for radio studios
worldwide. And, when it comes to studio recording or professional concert sound
applications, these mics provide you with the tools you need to get the sound you’re after
when recording vocals, guitars, drums, or brass.

The EV® RE16 Variable-D dynamic supercardioid microphone is
designed for the most exacting professional use, employing an
integral blast filter to permit handheld and outdoor use without
“P-popping” or excessive wind noise. In utilizing the Variable-D
design, the RE16 features a directional characteristic
independent of frequency. This results in a microphone that
generates little off-axis coloration, while providing the greatest
rejection of unwanted sounds. The supercardioid RE16 provides
its greatest rejection at 150-degrees off-axis; typical cardioids
provide their greatest in the horizontal plane when the
microphone is tilted in its most natural position – minus 30degrees from horizontal (as on a boom or floor stand). An easilyoperated “bass-tilt” switch corrects spectrum balance for boom
use and other longer reach applications.

RE92L
The RE92L is based on a great-sounding new
cardioid microphone element. This capsule features
a broad and smooth frequency response for a warm
and natural sound, a tight cardioid polar pattern for
excellent off-axis rejection, and extremely low noise
to give a clean and unadulterated sound.
The RE92L is the hardwired counterpart of the TX
version and is intended for spoken word applications.
The RE92L features the same wide and smooth
frequency response, well-controlled cardioid polarpattern, while its 4-ft. cable is terminated into an inline amplifier with XLR output. The amp features a 12
dB/octave switch-able high-pass filter for rolling off
low frequency noise, and its transformer-less
differential output easily drives longer cable runs.
Accessories include a two-stage mic wind-screen,
both single and dual mic tie clips, an amp housing
belt clip, and a zippered gig-bag.

TECHNICAL INFO
n 1934, Electro-Voice® invented the hum-bucking coil for
I
microphones, which is still an industry standard almost 70 years
later. The invention was the beginning of EV’s success in
building microphones, but not the end. Electro-Voice continues to
set new standards for microphone design today. Electro-Voice was
the first manufacturer to use neodymium-based magnet structures
(N/DYM®) in its microphones, thus achieving higher output and
condenser-like qualities such as crystal clarity and reliable
performance. Electro-Voice’s goals in developing microphone
technologies have always been the same: providing the highest
sound quality, achieving better and more comfortable handling for
the user, and continuing the company’s tradition of legendary
reliability and warranty support. EV’s long list of patents attest to its
36
MICROPHONES
WIRED
success in meeting these goals.
Variable-D®
Normal microphones generate increased bottom end
when used close up. This is typically called the
“proximity effect”. While some lead vocalists like this
effect and use it to enhance their performance, it is
attainable only in close-up situations. When the
distance between the microphone and the source is
extended, the sound quality changes dramatically.
Electro-Voice’s patented Variable-D® eliminates this
disadvantage. On the rear side of the diaphragm
there is a perforated pipe (interference duct) with
precise sonic slots at set distances. The duct
provides maximum damping that is completely
uncolored and undistorted at 180-degrees off-axis,
ensuring the same frequency response as if the
source was nearly on-axis.
Variable-D® designed microphones can be used very
close to other sound sources with no loss in clarity or
definition. This makes them the preferred choice for
tight vocals and challenging instruments such as
brass. Variable-D® microphones like the RE20 and
RE27 are favorites with broadcast show hosts, vocal
booths, voice-over studios, and professional touring or
rental companies.
VOB™
WIRED
MICROPHONES
Electro-Voice’s unique VOB™ technology (VocallyOptimized Bass™) reduces low-frequency distortion in
the microphone’s output. Critical damping of the lowfrequency resonant peak results in a microphone that
replaces the “muddiness” found in competitive models
with greater warmth and increased vocal intelligibility.
With a wider range of working distances than other
microphones, this intelligibility ensures a clean, clear,
consistent sound that “cuts through the mix”.
VOB™ counteracts proximity effect, sibilance, and Ppopping, thus assuring maximum vocal intelligibility
and musical clarity.
37
GUIDELINES
Microphone Techniques
General Microphone Use Guidelines
1. Always point the microphone at the desired source and away from the sources of
any unwanted sound.
2. The microphone should be located close to the sound source to minimize
interference from other potential sound sources.
3. Use the 3-to-1 rule when using multiple microphones: place each microphone
three times farther away from other microphones as it is from the desired sound
source. (If the microphone is 1 foot away from the sound sources, it should be
3 feet away from the next closest microphone).
4. Minimize over-handling of the microphone to reduce unwanted mechanical noise.
5. Positioning the microphone close to the sound source will increase gain-before
feedback and will also increase the bass tone of the signal.
Microphone Techniques for Musical Instruments
Miking techniques are a matter of personal preference. These are merely guidelines to assist in the
placement of the microphone to achieve optimal performance.
Usage
Best Mic Placement & Suggested EV Mic Usage
Snare Drum
Place mic 1-3” above the heads, 1-2” in from the rim. aim each mic at the
top head angled down 45 degrees. If the drum rings, rape deadening
material to the head or use damping rings. for more “snare” sound, place
a second mic under the drum aimed up a the bottom head.
Suggested mics: N/D478, N/D468, Co4.
Electric Guitar
Place microphone approximately 1-2” from and at a 90 degree angle to the
speaker cone. To reduce boominess, move the bass microphone off axis to
the cone from 90 degrees to 45 degrees, or move mic from center of cone
to the edge.

On double-headed toms, place mic 1-3” over the top of the drum head
at a 45-degree angle to the drum surface and 1/2" from the drum edge.
On single headed toms, use above method or place mic inside tom from
underneath at a 90-degree angle from the center of head, 3-5”

Information
Choose the wireless system wisely!
It’s important to note that all wireless systems are not created equal. Only a very few of the
products on the market today are actually designed and built by the people selling them. Many
of the most popular systems are built by microphone companies that only recently began to
manufacture wireless devices. Telex/EV is unique in the world of wireless. Electro-Voice has
been leading the way in microphone technology for 75 years and Telex practically invented
professional wireless microphones 30 years ago. All Telex and EV wireless products are the
result of this vast experience and technological know-how.
As more and more wireless products get into the market, more problems in installation and
performance are being encountered. Often times these problems are unique to the situation
and require a trained professional with considerable RF experience to solve. Telex maintains a
staff of highly trained RF engineers and designers to help our dealers and customers get
systems to work in the most critical and demanding applications. Wherever possible, we build
features into our new products to take care of problems before they start. The key for the
selling dealer is that they have a large company with plenty of experience and talent backingup their wireless installations.
Important Wireless Terminology
Like any other technical business, the wireless world is filled with technical jargon and
concepts all its own. It is very important that you understand the basics of this language, or
overzealous marketing materials can easily mislead you.
The Basics
A wireless system at its most basic includes a transmitter, handheld or bodypack, and a
receiver. There are many ways to get the signal from point A to point B and it is important to
dispel any myths or preconceived notions that may have been picked up from various
marketing materials. We will go through the more common technical terms and try to give you
and objective outlook.
What is Diversity?
outs of the radio signal. This is done by combining or selecting two or more antenna sources
MICROPHONES
WIRELESS
Diversity reception is a method of minimizing the effects of multi-path delays that create drop
for the same signal in order to produce a constantly usable signal. This always requires more
than one antenna in different physical locations but not necessarily multiple receivers.
There are many diversity circuits used in wireless microphones on the market today, including
twin receiver “switching” diversity, antenna diversity, switching antenna diversity, and the Telex
patented Posi-Phase auto diversity. Each of these methods may be effective, depending on
the particular implementation of the circuitry by the manufacturer, provided other critical areas
of the receiver circuitry are not compromised.
The term “diversity” is derived from the word “diverse”, which according to the American
Heritage Dictionary means varied or unlike. In the RF world, this translates to two or more
unlike sources of received signal energy at the receiver. As long as the two sources of signal
are unlike or varied from each other, they are diverse, hence the term ‘diversity’. These days you
hear a lot of hype about some systems that claim to be “true” diversity. It this were true, there
64
would also have to be a “false” diversity. But, by definition, any receiver using two or more
varied signal inputs has diversity, so the only ‘false’ diversity would be single antenna nondiversity. Major manufacturers may differ in their particular implementation of the diversity
circuitry, but all diversity systems use different sources of received energy from two or
more antennas. The term ‘true diversity’ is meaningless from an engineering standpoint.
What is patented Posi-Phase Diversity?
Posi-Phase diversity uses two antennas spaced apart, connected to a single high quality
receiver. The antenna signals are connected internally to microprocessor circuits that
monitor the phase relationship between the two antennas. Both antennas are active at all
times which greatly increases the signal strength under normal conditions. In the event of
a signal interruption from a partial phase cancellation (multipath) or total phase
cancellation (dropout) the logic circuitry adjusts the phase of the secondary antenna to a
positive condition relative to the primary antenna. This process occurs in a fraction of a
second and continually adjusts the phase of the second antenna for the optimum signal.
A similar patented technique is used in cellular telephones to insure their reliable
operation. Telex Posi-Phase diversity is more effective and less costly to produce than
switching diversity because only one high quality receiver is required. Since only one
receiver is needed, we are able to concentrate on the overall receiver design on more
important aspects of the receiver design such as filtering, IF circuitry, squelch and audio
circuitry Concentrating on these critical areas of a receiver design yields superior
performance over switching diversity.
The superior performance is easily verified by a simple shoot-out with range and audio
quality tests. Generally, under the same environment Telex systems will go nearly twice as
far as competitive models in a similar price range.
What is Phase Cancellation?
Phase cancellation or multipath dropout is a phenomenon where a direct radio signal and
a reflected radio signal combine in the receiver. The two signals are slightly out of phase
from each other due to the delay in the reflected signal. The phase difference causes the
two signals to interfere with each other and cause deterioration in the quality of signal at
A very common example of phase cancellation or multipath dropout has occurred to most
people at one time or another. If you have ever driven your car listening to your favorite
FM radio station and pulled up to a stop light and noticed your radio station become
fuzzy and faded away as you pull slowly forward, you have experienced phase
cancellation. Did you notice that when you pulled your car up just a few feet the station
came back to perfect reception?
Because multipath problems are related to the geometry of the set up, it is possible to
walk test the transmitters and correct potential dropouts using tools like the Sound
Check Screen in the RE-1 and adjusting your antenna placements. But be wary, each

WIRELESS GUIDELINES
Information
What is a Squelch Circuit?
Good receiver design begins with the RF and IF filtering, but another important part of
the receiver circuitry is the squelch system, or RF detection circuitry. This circuitry is the
“gate” that allows the audio to turn on or off based on the RF signals entering the
receiver. Simple gate squelch circuits that are commonly used in most competitive
wireless receivers have a detector circuit that opens the audio path as soon as a preset
level of RF energy is reached. When the signal is below the preset level, the audio path
is “closed” or grounded to be very quiet. The obvious problem with a simple gate
squelch is that any RF energy including distortion, hiss, harmonics from such sources as
lighting dimmers, CD or DVD players, computers, digital effects and electric motors are
indistinguishable from the desired signal. This extraneous RF energy will open the
squelch gate just as easily as the intended transmitter. So, often times the user must
“crank” up the squelch level all the way up to limit the sensitivity to noise, which reduces
range and performance of the system.
What is a Combination Squelch Circuit?
Advanced products like the FMR-1000, RE-1 and ENG-100 use a combination of tonecode and amplitude squelch to provide maximum protection against errant signals. In this
case, the tone squelch works as described in the previous section and when the tone is
present the amplitude squelch remains active. If, in the unlikely event, random noise fools
the tone detector, the signal at the intended frequency still needs to be high enough to
register on the amplitude squelch. The back up amplitude squelch further reduces the
chances that an errant signal will cause audio noise while the transmitter is turned off.
What other considerations should I think about?
When selecting a wireless system, consider the long-term use for the system and always
purchase a complete solution. That is, if you eventually intend to add more systems,
make sure you select a system that will allow for the total number of future systems. Also,
don’t forget to look at accessories such as antenna combiners, antennas, low loss
coaxial cable, and microphone choices.

Wireless Microphone Antenna Guide
ANTENNA TYPES
Most products ship with ?-wave antennas to be mounted directly on the receiver or the
rack mount hardware. These ?-wave antennas are not ground independent, meaning that
they cannot be mounted remotely at the end of a run of coaxial cable. For remote
mounting, use ?-wave or directional Log Periodic antennas such as the FA-500, CLA
series or the LPA500.
REMOTE MOUNTING
Antennas should be mounted with a direct line-of-sight to the performance area.
Whenever possible, that also means above the cast and crew, so mounting antennas ten
feet in the air at the side of the state is one of the best places for them. All coaxial cable
has signal loss, so keep the cable runs to minimum and use low loss cables to keep the
66
maximum performance range. The CXU cables from EV use very low loss cables that will
help maintain range.
ANTENNA DISTRIBUTION
When racking multiple receivers together, it is best to use an antenna distribution system
like the APD4+. The APD$+ provides power and antenna connectors for 4 receiver and
can be cascaded to run antennas for up to 16 systems from 2 antennas (using 5 APD4+
units). The important thing to keep in mind is to connect the input of each additional
splitter to the output of the original APD4+ (the one connected directly to the antennas)
to prevent a loss of rang
Wireless “Gain” Settings
Almost every wireless microphone system has an adjustment on the transmitter that is
called a “Gain” adjustment, which often confuses users. This setting should really be
called a “Deviation Control”, but that would more than likely confuse users even more.
The problem with calling it a gain setting, however, is that the end user attempts to use it
to set their overall audio level – not what the control is designed to do. After all, wired
microphones do not have a gain control and the mixing board or amplifier must be used
to control the audio levels.
The gain setting is unique to wireless microphones and is used to maximize the signal-tonoise ratio and dynamic range whether it is used as a podium microphone, close talking
signing mic, lapel, headworn, or even guitar or instrument. Frequency Modulated (FM)
radios transmit audio information as changes in the carrier frequency. The bigger the
changes in frequency, the better the signal-to-noise ratio. So, if the system’s maximum
deviation is +/-40KHz, we want the loudest level input into the microphone to generate
40KHz deviation. With the gain set above that, we would be clipping or distorting the
maximum input and if it is set too low, we are not getting the clearest possible signal.
To set the Wireless “Gain” properly, it should be adjusted without any
audio output.
in this application. (For guitar systems, turn the gains on the guitar to maximum
and hit the hardest note that will be used in concert)
2) Then adjust the gain on the transmitter until the audio meter peaks in the usable range
(or the overmodulation light does not come on).
3) Then make the audio connections and use the mixing board or amplifier to set the
audio levels for the PA. Or, with a guitar/instrument wireless system, when the
bodypack gain is set and the audio meter is not railing, set the receiver output
to match whatever instrument amplifier is being used.
