Hi guys, I found this forum while trying to google a solution to my problem. Maybe the collective knowledge here might help! I have been using a personal monitoring rig for my in ear monitor for the past year (needed because my bands board doesnt have enough sends for the horn players...). The setup is like this: Trumpet --> Clip on wireless Beta 98 Shure PGX wireless --> ARTcessories splitter --> ARTcessories $30 preamp (boost the signal a bit) then to my MIPRO 808 in ear monitor. This has been OK for the time I have used it, but I have always had a less than optimal signal from the set up. I have always needed to turn the bodypack to 75% or greater during a gig to hear myself clearly. This became more evident as I have tried different triple driver in ears (UE triple fi and mylivewire trips). The sound is not clear, distorted, basically junk. I had been using SCL4's, and I didn't have this issue, so I began tinkering. I ended up playing a show this weekend with the mic --> preamp first -->then splitter. I had it working nicely at the house, it seemed to solve the junk signal in the trips (I have no idea why it was junk to begin with). The issue with this setup is that the send to the board is now influenced by the preamp where it was BEFORE the preamp in my previous set up. I had it set optimally for my ear signal, but it was much too hot for the board, so I had to change the setting rather dramatically (lower). This put me back in the 75% up on the body pack situation. Question is, what is the easiest way to do this? I am tinkering, trying things, wasting money, probably hurting my ears. Anyone ever done this successfully? I spoke to an expert at one of the online retailers who couldn't find a flaw with the system and was stumped bt the issue. Any thoughts would be appreciated.
