**The above specifications are subject to change without prior notice.
Important usage instructions

  • To cope with the complicated 2.4GHz wireless environment, the line-of-sight distance between the microphone and the receiver should be shortened to ensure that the signal is not blocked.
  • When one receiver is used with two microphones, it is recommended that the microphones be set to A-SCAN mode. (Please refer to P13)
  • When two receivers are used with four microphones, the microphones should be set in FCH01~F-CH04 modes respectively and the modes cannot be repeated. (Please refer to P13)
  • The A-SCAN mode and F-CH01~F-CH04 mode cannot be mixed in the same system.
  • When the system encounters interference or signal interruption, try the following:
    • The microphone enters the A-SCAN function page and scans to search for the best available channel.
    • The receiver should be kept at least 5 meters away from other WiFi, Bluetooth, or 2.4GHz devices in use.
    • Keep the distance between the microphone and the receiver at least 2 meters.

Antenna installation
Install supplied 2.4GHz receiver SMA antenna A and B at SMA connectors on the front panel. Please make sure the antennas being firmly tightened otherwise the reception quality might be affected.
FITNESS AUDIO DX6 DR Dual Channel Three Redundancy Digital Wireless Microphone System - fig 29Receiver placement

  1. The receiver should be at least 1m above the ground and 1m away from a wall or metal surface to minimize reflections.
  2. The transmitter should also be at least 1m away from a wall or metal surface to minimize reflections.
  3. The transmitter should also be at least 1m away from the receiver. Keep antennas away from noise sources such as motors, automobiles, neon lights as well as large metal objects.FITNESS AUDIO DX6 DR Dual Channel Three Redundancy Digital Wireless Microphone System - fig 28
  4. The receiver should be at least 5m away from 2.4GHz wifi or other 2.4GHz transmitting devices.
  5. Power voltage should not be below 12V DC or above 15V DC. Deficient current causes unstable operating voltage or malfunction and over current shortens the product life and possibly damages circuits.

Rack mounting
The receiver can be cabinet-mounted by either one or two units. If only one receiver is to be mounted, an optional kit is available and it’s installed as shown in Fig 1. If two receivers are to be mounted, they can be assembled by another kit and installed as shown in Fig 2.

  3. After a level is chosen, wait about 5 seconds to save the setting and the level will not change after a reboot until the setting is changed again.

1. Setting the sensitivity of the LAVALIER and HEADSET MICROPHONE of the belt pack transmitter

Sensitivity value -1 0 1
Dynamic range high middle low
Noise & feedback low middle high
Mic cartridge to mouth < 10 cm 10 cm to 20 cm > 20 cm

2. Setting the sensitivity of INSTRUMENT input of the beltpack transmitter

Sensitivity value -1 0 1
When to choose Instrument input level too high default Instrument input level too low
Function Decrease input level default Increase input level

Important:

  • The farther distance from the mouth the higher sensitivity is required. The default gain level is 0.
  • Higher sensitivity will lower the dynamic range of input signals, which may result in more feedback concerns.
  • The above description is for reference only. Please set the sensitivity at a proper level when operating the microphone system.

Notch filter
When noise signals are picked up by the microphone, a notch filter can prevent these signals from entering the receiver. Its default status is ON. If using the belt-pack transmitter, it’s advised to turn on the notch filter. If using the handheld transmitter, it’s advised to turn off the notch filter.

  1. Press the SET button to make the text NF appear with ON / OFF flashing.

  3. After the status is chosen, wait about 5 seconds to save the setting and the status will not change after a reboot until the setting is changed again.

Equalizer setting

Equalizer adjustment is actually used to increase or reduce the high/mid/low-frequency component of the speaker’s restored sound. It is so-called raising or attenuating treble/bass via frequency-specific volume controls to improve human voices or make musical instruments’ sound more prominent. According to the scale values on the screen, the UP button is to increase and boost and the DOWN button to decrease and attenuate. Adjust the level of high frequency (Treble), mid-frequency (Mid), and low frequency (Bass) respectively. All signals have been balanced by the high and low sounds after entering the receiver so it is not necessary to adjust the equalizer during the output to the speaker. It is recommended to maintain the value of BASS, MID, and TREBLE at 0 dB.

Audio output connection

INDIVIDUAL balanced output
XLR connector provides balanced audio output signal from this jack to the mixer/amplifier. Use an audio output cable with “XLR” or “Cannon” connector, connect one end to the balanced output jack of the receiver, and the other end to the “MIC IN” jack of the mixer/ amplifier. (Fig 3)
MIXED unbalanced output
¼” PHONE PLUG connector provides an unbalanced audio output signal from this jack to the mixer/amplifier. Use an audio output cable with ¼” PHONE PLUG connectors. Connect one end from the unbalanced output jack of the receiver, and the other end to the “LINE IN” or “MIC IN” jack of the mixer/ amplifier.
Level switch setting
When connecting to the LINE /AUX IN of a mixer/amplifier, switch to the “LINE” position (Fig 4). DO NOT use the “MIC” position as they may not deliver a sufficiently high output level.
When connecting to the “MIC IN” jack of a mixer/amplifier, switch to the “MIC” position (Fig 5). Overload distortion may occur at the wrong level position.FITNESS AUDIO DX6 DR Dual Channel Three Redundancy Digital Wireless Microphone System - fig 13
