Product Description

CROWN PZM185 Microphone XLR Cable Polar Pattern

Budget model ideal for applications such as conferences, group discussions, interviews, broadcast, home video production, lectures, and recordings. XLR connector on 8-foot mini cable, battery or phantom powered.


Product Features
  • Conferences, group discussions, seated interviews - Lay the microphone on the table. Use one microphone in the middle of every 4 to 6 people. Ideally, no person should be more than 3 feet (0.9144 m) from the nearest microphone. For maximum clarity, hold the conference in an acoustically "dead" room with carpeting, acoustic-tile ceiling, and drapes.
  • Lectures - Place the microphone on top of the lectern, near the edge of the lectern farthest
    from the person speaking.
  • Video or movies - Lay the microphone on a table or on the fl oor near the action.
  • Music - Place the microphone near the sound source, on the fl oor, on a wall, or on a large
    hard-surfaced panel. For grand piano, tape the microphone to the center of the underside of
    the raised lid.
    For spaced-pair stereo recording, place two microphones three to ten feet (.914 to 3.05m) apart on a wall or on the fl oor about fi ve to twenty feet (1.52 to 6.10m) from the musical ensemble. For near-coincident stereo recording, mount them on a microphone stand using a stereo bar or stereo microphone adapter.
