The Crown PCC-170 is a half-supercardioid boundary microphone designed for use in conferences, boardrooms, courtrooms etc. The supercardioid polar pattern provides a highly directional pick up, minimizing noise and ambiance at the off-axis sections of the microphone. A wide frequency response of 50Hz to 20kHz accentuates the midrange frequencies associated with the human voice while minimizing low frequency noise. A "Bass Tilt" switch further eliminates low frequency hum and noise. The microphone is powered via 12 to 48V phantom power source, such as a Crown PH-1A or PH-4B power supplies.

Super-Cardioid Polar Pattern
The super-cardioid polar pattern is effective in minimizing noise at the off-axis sections of the microphone, providing high gain before feedback and pick up at long range.
Phase Coherent Pick Up
Although mounted on a surface, direct and reflected signals are reproduced in phase.
Wide Frequency Response
The 50Hz to 20kHz frequency response accentuate frequencies associated with the voice, while minimizing low frequency noise.

      Comments about Crown Audio PCC-170 - Conference Microphone:

      I bought 2 of these to test & potentially replace 4 beyerdynamic MPC 66 boundary mics.

      The problem with the MPC 66 is they were picking up alot of excess humm in the room from HVAC and other noises.
      The 'professional' audio installers claimed no improvement could be made.

      I went out on a gamble in search of the best boundary mic to replace it and decided on these.

      These are AMAZING! They blew the other mics out of the water.
      No hummm, no HVAC pickup. Clean voice.

      These work better than expected and would purchase again.
