    The Crown PCC-170 is a surface mounted super cardioid microphone of professional quality. This handsomely styled unit is appropriate for use on the most elegant boardroom table or lectern. Other applications include churches, courtrooms and council chambers.

    Because of its highly directional pickup pattern, thePCC-170 minimizes background noise and feedback.The microphone reproduces the voice with a clean, clear and natural sound.

    Since the microphone capsule is placed on a boundary or surface, direct and reflected sounds arrive at the diaphragm in-phase. This coherent addition of direct and reflected waves increases sensitivity 6 dB and prevents phase cancellations. The mic capsule is small enough to ensure phase coherency up to the highest frequencies in the audible spectrum, resulting in a wide, smooth frequency response free of phase interference.Clarity and reach are also enhanced.

    Self-contained electronics eliminate the need for an in-line preamp. Powered by 12-48V phantom power, the PCC-170 has a low-impedance mic level balanced output which permits long cable runs without hum pickup or high-frequency loss.

    • Specifications

      • Specifications
      • Type: Phase Coherent Cardioid.
      • Element: Electret condenser.
      • Frequency response (typical): 50 Hz to 20,000 Hz at
      • 30 degrees incidence to surface (see Fig. 1).
      • Polar pattern: Half-supercardioid (supercardioid in
      • the hemisphere above the primary boundary). See
      • Figs. 2 and 3.
      • Impedance: 150 ohms, balanced (recommended load
      • impedance 1000 ohms or greater).
