Mixing Board requirements for In Ear MonitorsFAQ #1399
Question:I have a few questions. I'm ready to purchase my in ear monitors, but there are a few things I need to make sure of before I do. My mixer is the Mackie 808M. Is this compatible with the ear monitor systems? If you aren't sure, then just tell me what the minimum requirements are for a sound board. Also - I have some custom-molded musicians ear plugs (with different filters for different db. levels). Will these molds work with the ear monitor systems?
1) Any mixing board that provides Aux level or Line level outputs will properly drive Shure PSM transmitters.
2) The custom ear molds are made to fit your ears and a specific in-ear driver, like the Shure model E1 or model E5. Contact Sensaphonics at 877-848-1714 about custom ear molds.
