Wireless microphones use a receiver that captures the high-frequency signal transmitted from the microphone. To connect a wireless microphone receiver to the Mixer or sound system, you will need the correct cable to connect the receiver to and a soundboard.
Step by step guide to Connect a Wireless Microphone Receiver to Mixer
Step 1. Connect power to the receiver. Look at the back of the wireless microphone’s receiver. It has an XLR or 3 prongs or 1/4 inch, one hole output jack. Use an XLR cable or 1/4-inch cable for the output of the wireless microphone receiver.
Step 2. Connect the other end of the receiver cable to an unused track on your mixer or soundboard. The inputs are on the back of the mixer for each track.
Step 3. Make sure the microphone and receiver are set to the same frequency. This is to allow the receiver to receive transmissions from the wireless microphone.
Step 4. Set the fader of the track to which you have connected the wireless receiver to zero. Have someone speak into the microphone while you turn the mixer’s gain knob. The gain knob brings the signal into the track. This should allow you to hear the speaker’s voice gradually increasing. Make sure the Master Fader is set to 0.
Make sure your wireless microphone has new batteries.
If you hear interference, change the frequency of the wireless microphone and receiver.
When you hear feedback, move the microphone away from the speaker if possible.

Can I use my wireless microphone with any receiver?
Wireless microphones will likely come with their own receivers and may not respond to connections with other receivers. However, you may need to check the user manual to confirm. It depends on the manufacturer and microphone model.
What do you need for a wireless microphone system?
People in the audio industry often take certain facts for granted. We need a PA system to connect a microphone, we need speakers to get sound from an amplifier, and we know that different sound systems are suitable for different applications.
For audio beginners who can include everyone from meeting planners to teachers, creating a great-sounding (or simply functional) microphone system without guidance can be a daunting task. Here are 3 things you will need to buy:
A microphone is simply the component through which the user speaks (or sings). It converts sound waves into electrical impulses and then amplifies them so the listener can hear them. In a wireless microphone, electrical signals are passed to a transmitter that converts the signal into radio waves. (You can also convert the signal to infrared, but for this article, we will use the radio).
For handheld microphones, the transmitter is usually built into the microphone body (also called a capsule). For hands-free microphones such as lavaliers and headsets, the transmitter is usually a pack worn by the user on a belt.
The transmitter broadcasts to the receiver, which in turn converts the radio waves back into electrical signals that can be passed to the sound system. Perhaps the sound system is the fourth component, but I’ll skip it here as it’s covered elsewhere. Without these components, your wireless microphone will not work.
Conclusion- Connect Wireless Microphone
Wireless microphones have something like this. Helps avoid tangling in webs or cables. This state-of-the-art microphone is a lifesaver. But at the same time come their own difficulties. This is especially true if you want to secure a tight wireless connection that doesn’t end badly. So far this article has shown you how to connect a wireless microphone.
