Can the transmitter be plugged into a soundboard's XLR main output and can the receiver be plugged into the XLR input of the Canon XA11 Camcorder (B&H # CAXA11 MFR # 2218C002)? If so, should the XA11's input be set to Line, MIC, or MIC +48?
Asked by: Kenneth
After looking at the specs on the Xvive Audio U3 2.4 GHz Digital Wireless Microphone System (Xvive), I saw that it has a maximum input level of 2.8 V p-p in Mic Mode and 7 V p-p in Line Mode. My mixer has +4dBu outputs. That's approximately 1.23 Volts which is below the maximum input levels of the Xvive. With that said, I decided to give it a try and it worked. One drawback to consider. The Xvive has a thick form factor. After plugging it into the Canon XA11 Camcorder, I could not remove it. The release button on the XA11 is blocked by the body of the Xvive. I guess it will just have to stay there so I am glad that it works.

Yes, the transmitter for the Xvive Audio U3 2.4 GHz Digital Wireless Microphone System accepts line level input signal so the system can be used to connect a mixer with speakers. Keep in mind that this system has an operating range of up to 90 feet line of sight.

I have a C100 MK 2, was thinking that this would be great to use with a shotgun Mic. Plug one end into the XLR in the upper handle and the other into the XLR on the Mic. This should work well, correct?
Asked by: Noah J
You would have to plug the mic into the transmitter and the receiver into a recorder, camera or mixer. This is only made for dynamic mic's. So no phantom power.
