The CROWN PCCÃ‚Â®-160 is a surface-mounted supercardioid microphone and an industry-standard for lecterns, conference tables, and news desks Ã‚â€“ wherever improved gain-before-feedback and articulation are important.
Unlike the CROWN PZMÃ‚Â®, the Phase Coherent CardioidÃ‚Â® uses a subminiature supercardioid mic capsule. Its directional polar pattern improves gain-before-feedback, reduces unwanted room noise and rejects sounds from the rear. The mic capsule ensures phase coherency up to the highest frequencies, resulting in a wide, smooth frequency response. Capable of withstanding up to 120 dB SPL without distorting, the CROWN PCCÃ‚Â®-160 will never overload in practical use. A Ã‚â€œbass tiltÃ‚â€ switch allows the user to tailor the low-end response for particular applications. Thanks to its low profile and black finish, the microphone becomes almost invisible in use.
