Plug-in Transmitter. This version of the kit includes an alternate transmitter for use with XLR microphones. You can only one transmitter at a time; you can’t use both simultaneously.
Power Supply. The Sennheiser G3 Wireless Mic Kit requires a total of six AA batteries to operate the receiver and transmitters. Batteries aren’t included with this rental, but Rechargeable AA Battery 8-Pack Travel Kit can be ordered separately.
Frequency Range. This kit is the Frequency Range A version. If you don’t need a specific frequency, then it doesn’t matter which you choose. Frequency Range A is no better than any other frequency range; however, if you’re using more than one kit at the same time, make sure they’re all in the same frequency range.
User Configuration. Because this kit’s ability to deliver good audio depends on getting clear reception, you must set up the wireless mics yourself on-site where you’ll be filming. The channels each transmitter/receiver operates on will vary depending on your location, so a good frequency in our office may not be a good frequency for your beach/church/army base/etc.
