The BLX1 is an analog bodypack transmitter that’s ideal for public speakers, worship leaders, community theater groups, and more. Typically paired with lavalier mics and wireless headsets, the BLX1 is compatible with mics used as part of Shure BLX® Wireless Systems. A TQG connection on the transmitter enables connection with Shure lavalier, headset, earset, and instrument mics, as well as guitar cables.
The BLX1 stands up to extended use whether speaking or performing with a battery life of up to 14 hours. An LED battery status indicator alerts you to battery levels with a red light when less than 60 minutes of battery life remain. A toggle switch provides tactile control over whether the bodypack is on or off. Control sound directly from the bodypack transmitter with adjustable gain control. Its group and channel selection buttons enable quick frequency matching with the receiver.
Depending on the wireless microphone system in use, the transmitter can operate at distances up to 300 feet (line of sight). The lightweight yet rugged build means you don’t have to worry about damage during everyday use, and it easily clips onto a belt, pocket, or guitar strap for optimal placement.
