TwinPlex™ Lavalier Microphones
General Description
The Shure TwinPlex subminiature omnidirectional lavaliers are designed to perform better than other 5 mm lavalier micro­
phones for professional theater, film, tv, and corporate events. The TwinPlex dual-diaphragm technology yields extraordinary
gain­before­feedback, off­axis response, and low self­noise while delivering life­like, exceptional clarity free of digital interfer­
ence. The cable itself is ultra quiet and has been tested to be the longest-lasting, most dependable cable in its class. The Twin­
Plex series features the most extensive accessories and connector options to date. TwinPlex 5 mm lavs not only meet premi­
um market-leading expectations, they exceed them.

The Shure TwinPlex Cartridge
Over 6 years in development, the patent pending, TwinPlex Omnidirectional element was designed to offer best in class sound
quality and specifications of any lavalier to date. It utilizes a dual-diaphragm design with two side firing elements as opposed to
a single, end fired design. By essentially doubling the surface area of the diaphragm in the same amount of space, the Twin­
Plex design offers robust low frequency response, exceptional off-axis consistency, increased gain-before-feedback and low
handling noise, resulting in a new tier of performance for 5mm microphones.

Care and Maintenance
The TwinPlex lavalier dual-diaphragm has a nanocoating which rejects the build-up of grit from sweat and water. It is designed
to withstand being blown out with a can of air for quick clean-up.

Hirose Wiring for Sony Bodypacks
Notes:
• When using TwinPlex mics with Sony Hirose 4­pin bodypacks, Shure recommends purchasing Shure –MTQG versions
and not –NC versions. This facilitates an easier termination due to the lack of circuitry required in Shure 3­wire/MTQG
TA4F products.
• Due to the thin cable on TwinPlex and the large boot on Hirose connectors, heat shrink may be required to build up the ca­
ble under the boot where the crimp connection is made and where the cable exits the boot
• The TwinPlex Microdot (-MDOT) version can be used with 4-pin Hirose adapters from DPA (DPA part # DAD6008)

RPM400 Preamplifiers
The RPM400 preamplifiers offer exceptional dynamic range utilizing an active gain circuit in a concise and small package.
They are offered in two connector versions: TA4F and LEMO, which allows you to quickly take a wireless TL microphone and
make it a wired solution. These preamplifiers require phantom power and can efficiently operate across a wide range of supply
voltages from 12-48v.
Features
•
•
•
•
Active circuit design with neutral gain mimics wireless for consistent gain output across wired or wireless applications.
High RF immunity against unwanted interference.
Short, compact design.
Belt clip and table mounting kits for easy placement for a variety of applications.
Preamplifier Mounting Kit
TwinPlex XLR microphones include an under table mounting kit for temporarily or permanently mounting the amplifier. It in­
cludes preamplifier clip, 4 screws, and premium dual lock adhesive. The mounting kit and accessories are also sold separately.
