System Applications
Refer to the following PSM300 system scenarios prior to installation. Understanding the configuration options before setting up
helps to identify signal routing requirements and plan for future expansion. Specific information on how to set up the PSM300
system and create mixes for monitoring can be found in the "System Setup and Configuration" and "Operation" sections of this
user guide.
Single System for an Individual Performer
This configuration provides in­ear monitoring in a solo performance, or in a group performance in which only one person re­
quires wireless monitoring. This system can be expanded for multiple performers by using additional P3R bodypack receivers
tuned to the same transmitter.
Single Transmitter with Multiple Receivers
Multiple performers can monitor audio from the same transmitter and still adjust the signal at their bodypack to personalize the
mix. Simply tune each bodypack to the same frequency as the transmitter and use the MixMode knob to adjust the mix.
MixMode or Stereo Operation:
Each performer has the option of setting their bodypack to MixMode or Stereo when the transmitter is set to Stereo-MX. When
the bodypack is powered on, it is set to stereo by default. To operate in MixMode, hold the GROUP button when turning the
power on. For information on these modes, see "MixMode and Stereo Monitoring".
13/36
Shure Incorporated
Multiple Transmitters with Separate Mixes
When several performers in a group have different monitoring requirements, multiple PSM300 systems may be used simulta­
neously to send different mixes through each transmitter. This setup requires a mixer with two monitor/auxiliary outputs for
each transmitter.
Tip: To simplify setup in applications that involve multiple transmitters, Shure offers the PA411 antenna and power distribution system, which supplies up to
four PSM transmitters with power and RF from a single source.
14/36
Shure Incorporated
Signal Routing to External Devices (Combination Systems)
The LOOP outputs pass audio to an external device, such as other personal monitoring systems, recording devices, or stage
monitors. The signal at the LOOP outputs is identical to the signal coming from the mixer, and is not affected by the transmitter
volume or input sensitivity (line/aux) settings. This makes the LOOP outputs particularly useful when using a mixer that has
one or two monitor/auxiliary sends.
Using the PSM300 simultaneously with Loudspeakers:
A combination monitoring system can be used, where some of the performers are using the PSM300 wireless system and oth­
ers are listening through loudspeakers on stage.
Note: If using passive stage monitors, the P3T outputs must be connected to an amplifier. Active (amplified) speakers can be connected directly to the P3T
outputs.
Using the PSM300 Combined with Other Wireless Monitoring Systems
In a scenario where two performers have their own wireless monitoring systems (one Shure PSM300 system and one thirdparty system, for example), the PSM300 can pass the signal from the mixer on to the second monitoring system.
System Setup and Configuration
Rack Mounting
The P3T Transmitter can be mounted in a standard 19­inch rack. Up to two units can be mounted in a single rack space. If us­
ing multiple P3T transmitters, the Shure PA411 Antenna Combiner system can be used to consolidate and distribute all RF and
power for up to four transmitters.

the receiver.
16/36
Shure Incorporated
Scanning for the Best Open Channel
Follow these steps to scan the RF environment and find the best available frequency for operation:
1. Turn on the bodypack receiver and any potential sources of interference, including wireless systems, computers, audio
equipment, cellular phones, LED panels, and other electronic devices that will be in use during a performance.
2. Make sure the P3T transmitter is OFF.
3. Position the receiver in the performance area and press SCAN to survey the available channels within the current
group setting.
If using several PSM300 systems or operating in a location with a high volume of wireless devices, perform a group
scan first, followed by a channel scan:
Group Scan: Press and hold the SCAN button on the receiver.
Channel Scan: Press the SCAN button on the receiver.

Creating a Wireless Connection Between Receivers and Transmitters
(Sync)
To pass audio from the transmitter to the receiver, both must be tuned to the same frequency. The easiest way to configure the
system is to use the automatic sync feature. This transfers group and channel settings with a press of a button. Based on your
system configuration, use one of the following processes to sync the components:
Align the IR windows to sync the receiver and transmitter
Pressing the SYNC button transfers group/channel data
Single Transmitter and Receiver
The following sync procedure should be used with a setup that consists of a single transmitter and receiver, unless a group/
channel setting has been assigned prior to a performance.
18/36
Shure Incorporated
Sync from receiver to transmitter:
1.
2.
3.
4.
Perform a scan on the receiver (see "Scanning for the Best Open Channel" for best practices).
Align the IR windows on the receiver and transmitter. The windows should be 6-11 cm apart.
Press the SYNC button on the transmitter while the blue RF LED on the receiver is flashing.
The Transmitter displays SYNC when the sync is successful. The arrow between Rx (receiver) and Tx (transmitter)
shows the direction of the sync.
Note: When the RF LED on the receiver is flashing after performing a scan, the receiver sends its frequency setting to the transmitter. After it stops
flashing, pressing SYNC sends the frequency setting from the transmitter to the receiver.
Single Transmitter and Multiple Receivers
The following sync procedure should be used with a setup that consists of a single transmitter with multiple receivers, or if a
specific group/channel setting has been assigned to the transmitter prior to a performance.
Sync from transmitter to receivers:
1. Sync the first receiver to the transmitter using the sync procedure for a single receiver. Performing a scan and using the
resulting group and channel from the receiver is recommended.
2. Set additional receivers to the transmitter frequency (one at a time) using IR sync:
◦ Align the IR windows on the receiver and transmitter and press SYNC.
◦ The receiver LED should not be flashing when pressing SYNC.
Note: Receivers can also be manually tuned to the transmitter if an IR sync is not practical.
Multiple Transmitters and Multiple Receivers
1. Set up the first transmitter and all associated receivers according to the appropriate sync procedure. Keep the transmit­
ter and all receivers from this first system powered on when setting up additional systems.
2. Set up each additional system using the appropriate sync process. Always leave each new system on before setting up
an additional one.
19/36
Shure Incorporated
Manual Selection
If frequencies have been planned ahead of time, the group and channel can be set manually without performing a scan. Refer
to the frequency table at the end of this user guide to identify frequencies for each group/channel setting.
To select group/channel settings on the receiver and transmitter:
1. Press GROUP to scroll through group settings.
2. Press CHANNEL to scroll through channel settings within the selected group.
Adjusting Gain and Listening Volume
For the best audio quality, start by adjusting the levels from the mixer or audio source, and then adjust levels through the
PSM300 system. This approach corresponds to the way that the audio signal flows through the system, and maximizes the sig­
nal-to-noise ratio.
Before you begin: verify all signal routing and gain settings at the mixer or source prior to adjusting any levels from the
PSM300 system. If the sound is distorted or faint when it enters the P3T transmitter, there is likely an issue elsewhere in the
signal chain that needs to be resolved.
① Adjust Transmitter Levels:
Input Sensitivity
Select the setting that matches the input source:
Line (+4 dBu)
Use with mixers or other professional audio devices that send line-level signals.
Aux (-10 dBV)
Use when connecting consumer audio devices such as portable audio players or computers.
Note: When using consumer audio devices, the output volume of the device should typically be adjusted as close to the maximum setting as possible without
distorting or clipping at the output of the device. This maximizes the signal-to-noise ratio.
Input Level
Adjust the level so that average levels on the audio meter reach approximately 75% of the full range. The highest levels
should occasionally hit the 0dB indicator on the audio input meter, without reaching the OL (overload) indicator.
Tip: If a sound check before the performance is possible, everyone should play at the loudest anticipated volume so that attenuation is not required during the
performance.
20/36
Shure Incorporated
② Adjust Receiver Volume:
After levels are established at the mixer and transmitter, use the headphone volume control on the bodypack receiver to adjust
overall listening volume. For information on adjusting the left/right balance or customizing the mix blend, see "MixMode and
Stereo Monitoring".
Operation
Creating Monitor Mixes
The mix that performers hear on stage is usually different than the mix heard by the audience. In live sound applications, the
engineer creates a separate mix to send to the performer by routing the input signals to specified mixer outputs, usually called
Monitor or Auxiliary outputs.
The following scenario demonstrates a generic signal path for monitoring mixes, and may not reflect the routing for all mixer
types. Consult the user guide for your mixer for detailed signal routing options.
① Mixer Channel
Each mixer channel controls audio processing and routing for a single audio source. In this
example, a vocal microphone is plugged into the mixer channel.
21/36
Shure Incorporated
② Monitor/Auxiliary Sends
Adjust the signal levels to send to the monitor/auxiliary outputs, each of which corresponds
to a separate monitoring mix. Each of these mixes are sent to separate channels on the P3T
transmitter.
Note: The channel faders on most mixers do not affect the volume of the monitor/auxiliary sends.
③ Wireless Transmission
Each monitoring mix is transmitted on a separate channel to the P3R receiver. The MixMode
knob on the bodypack adjusts the blend between the audio from channel 1 and channel 2.
MixMode and Stereo Monitoring
The receiver can operate in stereo or MixMode when the transmitter is set to STEREO-MX. In applications that involve multiple
bodypack receivers tuned to a single transmitter, some bodypacks can operate in stereo, while others operate in MixMode.
Selecting the Mode
Stereo: The receiver is set to stereo mode by default. To switch from MixMode to stereo, simply turn the receiver off and it will
return to stereo mode when powered back on.
22/36
Shure Incorporated
MixMode: Press and hold the GROUP button on the bodypack receiver while turning the power on. The MixMode indicator
light on the receiver display turns on to confirm the setting. The receiver will return to stereo mode after it has been powered
off.
Stereo
Audio from channel 1 is heard on the left earphone, while audio from channel 2 is heard on the right earphone. Listening in
stereo mode increases separation between the sources on each channel, which can improve clarity when many sources are
being monitored. The MixMode knob on the bodypack adjusts left/right balance when operating in stereo mode.
MixMode
MixMode allows performers to adjust the blend between two monitoring mixes (an instrumental mix and a vocal mix, for exam­
ple). When using MixMode:
• Each mix is heard through both the left and right earphones
• The MixMode knob adjusts the volume blend between the two monitor mixes (channel 1 and channel 2)
• Each bodypack receiver can dial in a unique blend to meet the monitoring needs of each performer
Adjusting mix levels
In this scenario, an instrumental mix is on channel 1 and a vocal mix is on channel 2:
To hear more of channel one, turn the MixMode knob to the left.
23/36
Shure Incorporated
To hear more of channel two, turn the MixMode knob to the right.
When to Use the Mono Setting
In some cases, only a single input on the transmitter is used (if the mixer only features a single monitor/auxiliary output, for ex­
ample). To ensure that audio is heard on both the left and right earphones:
• Use the LEFT/CH1 input on the transmitter
• Set the transmitter to MONO
Note: When the transmitter is set to mono operation, the MixMode knob will not affect the sound.
Troubleshooting
Problem
Solution
Check the volume levels at the P3T transmitter and verify that the meter is not reaching the overload
indicator
Check levels going in and out of the mixer. If audio is distorting anywhere in the signal chain, it will be
distorted even if the PSM300 system is not overloading.
Make sure batteries in the receiver are fresh
Verify that the cables are 1/4 inch balanced. If an unbalanced instrument or speaker cable is used, it
may introduce noise.
Distorted Audio
Tip: To tell the difference, look at the connectors on the cable. The metal connector on a balanced cable has two plastic rings
that divide it into three separate sections (tip, ring, sleeve). An unbalanced cable only has a single plastic ring that divides the
metal portion into two sections (tip, sleeve).
Check that all cables are plugged all the way into the mixer and the P3T inputs. Sometimes, if a ca­
ble is not fully inserted, the signal will be faint and distorted.
Make sure you are using the line-level outputs from the mixer. If you have a powered mixer, do not
use the main speaker outputs, as they are amplified signals and will overload the P3T inputs.
No sound from re­
ceiver
Make sure the transmitter and receiver are linked to the same group and channel
Verify levels are registering at the transmitter and that the volume is turned up on the receiver
Check that the receiver is on and that the headphones are properly connected to the receiver
24/36
Shure Incorporated
Problem
Solution
Turning the Mix­
Mode knob does
not affect the
sound
The Stereo­MX/Mono switch on the rear panel of the P3T may be switched to mono. For the Mix­
Mode knob to work, the transmitter must be set to Stereo-MX.
Verify that the signals going from the mixer to the transmitter are not identical
Check that the bodypack is set to MixMode
Low audio output
at the receiver
Check headphone connection and volume level
If only sending a single channel into the P3T transmitter, check it the MixMode knob isn't turned to­
wards a silent channel. If using one channel, set the P3T transmitter to mono mode.
Audio or RF drops
out
Perform a scan to ensure the receiver is on a clear (available) frequency
Make sure there is a line-of-sight path between the transmitter antenna and the bodypack receivers
Verify that other wireless devices that are being monitored, such as wireless microphones, are not
experiencing RF dropouts
If using an antenna other than the one included with the system, make sure it is designed to operate
in the correct frequency range
IR sync failure
Verify distance between receiver and transmitter is between 6-11 cm
