Wireless Microphones in the Theater

The main performance theater at MPAC has a set of eight Shure ULX-series wireless microphone sets with each receiver supporting either a handheld mic with an SM87 capsule or a bodypack that can connect to any mini-XLR source. All systems are, unfortunately, a bit dated, and are in the ULK-J1 frequency range.

The initial configuration that is supported is as follows:
