CHANGING IMPEDANCE

Your microphone is preset to 600 ohms impedance. You can change its impedance from 600 ohms to 50 k ohms to match your audio equipment’s impedance requirement.

Follow these steps to change impedance.

1.Use a Phillips screwdriver to remove the screw on the lower end of the microphone. Then using a pair of needle nose pliers, carefully pull out the 3-pinconnector. Be careful not to break the wires.

2.Carefully pull the low impedance red wire terminal out from pin number 2 (marked beside the pin on the bottom).

3.Connect the high impedance yellow wire terminal to pin number 2.

4.Matching the terminal base’s plastic tab with the notch on the microphone bottom, carefully reinsert the wires and terminal base into the microphone body until the screw hole in the base aligns with the screw hole in the microphone body. Replace the screw and tighten it.
