Dual mics on an XTL2500 remote head?

Postby NewJerseyBill » Fri Jan 23, 2015 3:28 pm

Has anyone hooked up two mics to an XTL2500 remote head? The head is somewhat centered between the officer and driver in our fire engine, but the mic is well over on the officers side. I'd like a second mic by the driver so he doesn't have to reach way over to the right side to get the mic when running solo. Any ideas?

Thanks, Bill.

Mount it more towards the middle of the rig.

You can wire a second mic into the accessory connector on the back of the head.
