"active side" of Countryman EMW
on Nov 4, 2011 at 1:26:23 am

I just bought a Countryman EMW and see references to mounting it with the "active side" in various positions.

Problem is, both sides look the same to me. How do I determine the "active" side?

Any info appreciated.

Look carefully at the capsule. The back side has a shiney plastic finish. The active side has a very fine mesh screen. When mounting the EMW in a Countryman vampire clip place the active side towards the back of the clip. That gives a very slight presence boost that helps to reduce the chest resonence when you place the mic too far up on the talents body.
