Industry-standard stage-floor mic catches the full dynamics of stage sound. The Crown PCC-160 Boundary Mic is a great mic for theater, large-group performances, lecterns, and happenings.
The Crown PCC-160 (Phase Coherent Cardioid) is a surface-mounted halfsupercardioid microphone intended for professional applications on stage floors, lecterns, conference tables, and news desks-wherever improved gain-before-feedback and articulation are important. Similar to the Pressure Zone Microphone (PZM), the PCC is designed to be used on a relatively large boundary surface. Unlike the PZM, the Phase Coherent Cardioid uses a miniature
supercardioid mic capsule. Its directional polar pattern improves gain-before-feedback, reduces unwanted room noise and rejects sounds from the rear. Surface-mounting creates a "half-supercardioid" polar pattern and increases directivity 3 dB. Since the microphone capsule is placed on a boundary, direct and refl ected sounds arrive at the diaphragm in-phase. This coherent addition of direct and refl ected 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.
