Being the only person under 60 and capable of working electronic devices, I've been tasked with making some magic happen with a PA system at work for a presentation. Except it's not really a PA system...so here's where it gets tricky. My workplace uses this receiver: And runs this wireless mic into it for our current addressing needs: It somehow works because of a 1/4" to RCA adapter cable that runs from the wireless receiver for the mic to the audio in (red+white) on the back of the receiver. So you've already got a working mic, what's the problem you might ask? Well my workplace is having a presentation where we've invited a man with no arms to tell us about why it's a bad idea to cut off your arms and how you can't get work done if you do. He is bringing his own special setup that requires our system to have an XLR input. Not a problem with a normal PA system, but using a fuckin home stereo, it's an issue. I've already gone ahead an bought this cable to try to create an XLR input for the system to make it work: Using my SM58 and a mic cable I brought in, I went to test it, and it almost worked but with a big problem. Even maxed out in volume, any speaking into the mic is extremely quiet coming out of the speakers. My guess is the mic level signal is just not loud enough and not being amplified in anyway before it hits the receiver's audio input(s). Our current wireless setup is plenty loud so I'm thinking maybe the 1/4" out on it is outputting a line level signal possibly? Regardless though I need a way to get a working XLR input into this receiver that makes the output loud enough for the room to hear. Is there some kind of unit out there that has an xlr input that can then output in a manner similar to our wireless mic's receiver? Unfortunately I have little to no budget for this endeavor, so it probably needs to stay under $100.
