   • Monitors
What we bring along
We provide our complete IN-Ear Monitor-System, including our own monitor-mixing console,
all required microphones and DIs, a passive split-multicore and 5 wireless UHF-channels.
(Frequency-details on page 3!)
Setup
In order to setup our monitor-console, we need a space of approx. 1,5 x 1,5 m, allowing good
sight onto stage and which must not be more than 15 metres away from your main stagebox.
To hookup with your system we will usually “collect” our channels from your stagebox, if that
provides paralleled XLR-outputs(male). If your stagebox does not provide parallel-outs, we
can patch all required channels “through” our stagebox into your system’s stagebox.

Especially on festivals with many bands and local wireless equipment, please take our
details into account when calculating a stable frequency-setup for your event, and let us
