    the audix om7 mic has a purpose built low output (0.9mV)
    do you think a standard to cruddy p.a. in a rehearsal room would have enough gain to get the maximum volume before feedback from the mic?
    cheers

    According to their website, that's the "purpose" of the lower sensitivity. BTW, the website is the lamest I've ever seen.
    As far as the mic's ability to interface properly with a "cruddy" PA, who knows. Too many variables, like the bands SPL in the room, room reflections,etc will dictate volume-before-feedback. So will the vocal talent. I have seen many so-called vocalists who did not have the lungs to sing over the band complain that they couldn't be heard.
    I have recommended Audix OM6s (and 7s) to other vocalists on this forum needing VBF. Some of them took my recommendation, some of them bought euro-crap ( I love my Beyers and Sennheisers, but not the ones they hype for that particular application) and then complained.
    That's life.
