The Shure SLXD3 is a reliable digital wireless plug-on XLR transmitter compatible with the SLXD4, SLXD4D, and SLXD5 receivers. Compact and lightweight, with a robust, all-metal construction and available phantom power, the unit is well suited for tough on-set operating conditions. Attach the handheld dynamic or condenser microphone of your choice for man-on-the-street interviews or connect your favorite shotgun mic for wireless booming (both types of mics are available separately).
Plug-On Transmitter Features
  • The SLDX3 features a secure, twist-locking XLR connector ready to accommodate a huge variety of microphone options, including handhelds like Shure's VP64 and SM63 models as well as shotguns like the VP82 and VP89 (mics available separately).
  • The transmitter offers 12 and 48V phantom power options for condenser microphones.
  • Engage the -12 dB pad for use on loud sources or use the +12 dB boost option on low-level sources.
  • Use the mic offset gain function to fine-tune the gain and ensure multiple mics are at similar volume levels.
  • Engage the 150 Hz high-pass filter to reduce distracting, unwanted low-end for clearer speech.
  • The rugged, all-metal transmitter includes a leather case with a belt clip and an OLED screen that shows essential information.
  • A selectable 1/10/30mW RF output allows you to increase the transmission power for long distances or to overcome interference, if necessary; the system provides a maximum transmission range up to 330'.
  • Two AA batteries (included) or an SB903 rechargeable battery (available separately) will power the unit for up to 8 hours.
Transparent Digital Sound, Dependable Performance, and Multi-Mic Mode
  • The SLX-D system delivers 24-bit digital audio with a fast transient response, a 20 Hz to 20 kHz frequency response, and a 118 dB dynamic range, resulting in clear, accurate sound.
  • Operating far away from potential Wi-Fi interference in the 2.4 GHz band, this version of the SLXD3 transmits in the G58: 470 to 514 MHz UHF band, with a 44 MHz tuning range and 1760 frequencies available to ensure a clean wireless signal.
  • The separately available receivers all feature Digital Predictive Switching Diversity, which uses a microprocessor to switch between the two antennas before dropouts occur.
  • A low latency of 3.2 ms helps ensure your sound and picture are easy to properly sync.
  • The SLX-D's spectrum-efficient digital transmission technology allows you to expand the system and use up to 32 mics at the same time.
  • Great for shoots with several cameras and microphones, the receiver's Multi-Mic Mode lets you scan and create a list of clean frequencies, which you can send to multiple receivers via IR.
  • Each receiver will sync to the appropriate transmitter at the touch of a button; settings on the transmitters, including the input gain and high-pass filter are also recalled.
  • Multi-Mic Mode makes channel allocation easier and more efficient since the receivers aren’t all auto-scanning and competing for open frequencies.
Optional Rechargeable Battery Management
  • Adding the SB903 lithium-ion rechargeable battery, along with an SBC10-903 single charger, SBC203 dual-docking charger, or SBC80-903 8-bay charger offers a cost-effective and environmentally friendly alternative to throwing away AA batteries (batteries and chargers available separately).
  • Using the SB903 battery and SBC203 charger simplifies the task of keeping multiple transmitters charged and ready—you can even recharge the battery while still in the transmitter or receiver.
  • When powered by an SB903, the components display the remaining battery life in hours and minutes.
  • The USB-C port on the transmitter allows for battery recharging and direct powering.

Would it be possible to in any manner whatsoever to use the SLXD3 with the ULXD or QLXD wireless systems from Shure?
Asked by: Anonymous
The Shure SLXD3 Digital Plug-On XLR Transmitter is unfortunately not compatible with ULXD or QLXD systems. ULXD and QLXD systems do have (limited) cross-compatibility, but SLXD systems are only compatible with SLXD components.
