    as the title says, I want to get a wireless system, but my bass has two outputs and I run them to separate amps. would I need to purchase two completely separate wireless systems? or could I have one receiver and two units? how would this work?

    also, I use a pedal board...how does that play into the wireless system?

  3. Some wireless units have more than one outlet on the receiver. I've never tried one, but I cant see any real problem compared to standard wireless sets. To use such a system you would only use one of your outputs which may make a difference depending on how the thing is wired. I doubt it though.

    I'm not aware of any stereo wireless units. So you'll need 2 complete systems. As far as interfacing with your pedalboard, you can either get something rackmount and run a long cable, or something with a smaller receiver and mount it directly on your board. Check out the Line 6 G30 and G50, both small enough for pedalboard use (the G30 receiver is smaller than a Boss pedal).
     
  5. I'd post this in the Live Sound forum - lots of wireless users there

    Run the output of the wireless receiver to an ABY splitter, then to your amps.

    whoops...can someone move this to the "live sound" forum? sorry, I must have had a brain fart and passed over that one last night. I'll look into the Line 6 wireless units. I had no idea they made them!

    They're pretty universally recommended around here. I have one, no problems for about 3 years now. Just get some rechargeable batteries to ease the burden on your wallet.

    Echo on the Line 6...great product, have used one for the past year or so, love it!! Ditto on the rechargeable batteries as well though...I can't get through 2-4 hour shows on one set of batteries, so rechargeables have definitely eased the cost of use!

    I love the line 6 relay as well. Batteries are cheap. I put in a new set first every gig ( 4 hours).

    agreed, I can depend on a set lasting for a gig no problem-I always put a fresh pair in at the start of a gig (I am using rechargeables-also have an xbox at home so having a slew of rechargeable double AA batteries is saving me lots of cash :) )

    do the batteries in the wireless units usually last only 4 hours, or so?

    I don't know how long they are supposed to last-I just know that they definitely will last through a 4 hour show, but will NOT last for 2 4 hour shows :)
    Hope that helps
