    I'm running sound for a band in a few weeks that just got a Shure PSM-200 wireless IEM system and I was wondering how to set this up. I have a Yamaha MG166cx mixer and normally run floor monitors through Aux 1.

    Do you have another spare aux send? If so patch that to the IEM transmitter.

    Don't forget fresh batteries for the show!

    Yeah, I have 2 Aux's. So just go 1/4" from the Aux 2, to XLR on the wireless transmitter then?

    What about the main mix...how do i get that into the "transmixer"? It has two inputs, one for vocals and one for everything else....

    Various possibilities...

    Option 1: ignore the second input and just create a mix from a single auxiliary. This means the singer can't adjust their own balance, but some singers would rather just ask the sound man to do that anyway.

    Option 2a: use two auxiliaries patched to both inputs. Send the vocal to one of them, and a full mix of everything else to the other.

    Option 2b: same as above, but use a direct out for the vocal instead of an aux.

    Option 3: if the "Transmixer" has mic pre-amps you could y-split the singers mic to one of the inputs, and run an aux send to the other.
