Handy Tips: Setting up Portable PA Systems

With all the Mipro portable PA systems, we recommend utilizing the optional MS70 tripod adjustable speaker stand this also allows you to align the speaker in the most effective direction. The Mipro dust cover is also a great accessory to keep the unit in good condition and the side pockets provide added storage for wireless microphones.
What is ACT?
"ACT" stands for "Automatic Channel Targeting" and is a world-first sync technology developed and patented from MIPRO in 2000. Innovative "ACT" allows the automatic synchronizing of the frequency selection from the receiver to your handheld and bodypack transmitters. At a simple touch of a button. Mipro ACT technology ensures fast and easy channel set-up of multiple wireless microphone systems. MIPRO was the first manufacturer in the industry to utilize this technology to synchronize (sync) the receiver and transmitter frequency automatically with a touch of a button. It is now an industry standard.
ACT Benefits
No manual frequency adjusting needed, unlike traditional transmitters.
Simple, fast and precise frequency set-up without mechanical errors.
Once the frequency has been set, the data is stored in memory, meaning that the frequency is set until it is changed by performing the "ACT" function again, even after powering off.

ACT Set-Up
Simply press the ACT (sync) button on the receiver to activate the ACT function.
Align transmitter IR window (red circle-shaped) with ACT IR window on the receiver and are facing each other within 30 cm (12-inch) range and within 5-7 seconds period. The receiver and transmitter frequencies are synchronized automatically.

Handy Tips: Setting up Portable PA Systems

  • If wind noise is a problem, using a wind-sock and turning the Bass down this will help to cut out the wind noise.

  • Work on your microphone technique. Test the microphone levels before guests arrive. Stand at the farthest end of the premises and listen carefully to get a feel of what is being said during the soundcheck.

  • Make sure you elevate and place the speaker in an appropriate position to maximize coverage and minimize feedback.

  • Always have spare batteries for the microphone

  • Charge your portable system before your function and directly after your function.

  • Each 6 to 12 months test the internal batteries for how long they operate for. Fully charge and play a music program, taking note of the time you started and finished. New systems should last approximately 6 to 8 hours on a full charge; however, this will differ depending upon the program you are running.

Avoid placing the wireless microphone/cord microphone directly in front of the loudspeaker. It's good to operate the microphone off to the side slightly behind the PA. The person speaking needs to be close to the microphone.
