Can I use condenser microphones with the FP3?

You can use them as long as they are battery powered. The FP3 doesn´t provide phantom power and therefore only dynamic microphones can be used.

Is a license required?

It depends on the country you are located and the chosen frequency band. Please get in touch with our technical support team.

What kind of output cable is in the box?

There are two cables that ship with every FP wireless System: TA3F-to-XLR and TA3F-to-3.5 mm

What’s the operating range?

FP Wireless and SLX units can be mixed and are intercompatible if same the frequency bands are used.

What’s the operating range?

Operating range always depends on the environment (closed rooms usually result in higher operating ranges due to many reflections around). Therefore no standard value can be given.
