What is the wiring scheme to connect a Shure condenser microphone, such as the WH30, WL183, WL184, WL185, etc., to an Electro-Voice RE-2 system, model BPU-2 wireless bodypack transmitter?
The bodypack transmitter for the Electro-Voice RE-2 wireless microphone system is designated as model BPU-2. The microphone connector on the EV transmitter accepts Switchcraft TA4F connectors.
Following is the wiring for the connector when a Shure condenser microphone, such as the WH30 or WL183, is used:
|EV Transmitter Wiring||Shure Microphone Wiring|
|Pin 1: shield||Shield|
|Pin 2: audio||Black|
|Pin 3: +5V bias||Red|
|Pin 4: +5V bias thru 3.3k ohm resistor||Do not use|
Note that the Electro-Voice wiring scheme is different from the Shure bodypack transmitters, which use the same connector.
