Teegarden Audio - PAC-116 Half Cardioid Boundary Mic

The PAC116 is a high-performance boundary microphone for use on stage and in the studio. For stage and conference applications the PAC116 provides a clear and intelligible voice reproduction and rejection of rear noise and floor vibration. In the studio, it provides a smooth frequency response and low noise due to its discrete electronics design and capsule response. The PAC116 preserves the delicate timbre of acoustic instruments, yet it can handle high sound pressure levels of up to 150dB with a switchable capacitor pad. Self-noise is very low, permitting clean, low-noise recordings.

Phase Aligned Condenser Technology The PAC 116 is a boundary microphone meant to be mounted on a large flat hard boundary such as a floor, wall, ceiling, or piano lid. A boundary microphone prevents phase cancellations since sound waves (In Audio Spectrum) add together on a boundary without time delay. The result is a smooth frequency response free of comb filtering, so speech and music sound clear and natural. Also, there is a 6dB increase in sensitivity due to the boundary effect.
