    I've started looking into wireless instrument transmitters and IEMs which got me to wondering...

    Does someone make a combined instrument/IEM system with a single pack that has both the instrument transmitter and the IEM receiver? Seems to me that would be super convenient.

    Yes, super difficult as well to get the design to work reliably without the transmitter unit breaking through to the receiver, even with the frequencies reasonably spaced. If a performer needs to wear both an IEM receiver and a mic/guitar transmitter, the separate units are usually strapped to opposite hips to get maximum separation.

    There may well be units available that have both functions, but if you find any, I would beware of cheap ones.
