Looking for some tips on proper setup of the PCC160 floor mic... Every year, I struggle with feedback...I assume it's coming from my stage monitor.
I'd like to set up the stage monitor in the center, but that's where my floor mic should go.... I usually fiddle with the faders, turning the monitor down and the mic up in desperate hopes to hear our chorus, singers....
any tips from seasoned veterans out there?

In my experience, floor mics can be very difficult to use. When you use them, try to place them as far downstage as any action goes, so that nobody steps on them, but as close to the actors as you can get. As far as numbers and spacing, use an odd number if you can (with one in the center of the stage), and use as few as you can so you can avoid phasing issues. Otherwise, just set the gain carefully and mix carefully, and you should get decent sound out of them with a minimum of feedback.
