Lately I've noticed that I have to use quite a lot of gain on my mic pres to get a good level out of my Phanthera V. I decided to use a 1 kHz sine wave to test the Phanthera against my AKG C414. According to specs the Brauner has a higher sensitivity than the C414: Brauner 33 mV/ Pa Cardiod C414 20 mV/Pa (-34 dBV) +/-0.5 dB So I was surprised to see that the C414 produced a hotter signal with the sine wave than the Brauner by 5 dB. Should having a higher sensitivity equal a hotter signal? If so then does this mean my Phanthera is not working properly? *I tested both mics at exactly the same distance from the speaker producing the sine wave and both mics went through the same pre. Thanks for any tips that can point me in the right direction!
