Sound Check and Gain Adjustment

Navigate to the receiver's Gain screen to test the transmitter at performance levels. Adjust the gain to keep the audio indicator within the optimal range. Reduce the gain if there is audible distortion of the audio.

System Set Up

Creating Audio Channels

A wireless audio channel is formed when a receiver and transmitter are tuned to the same frequency. The SLX-D system provides 3 methods for tuning the receiver and transmitter to the same frequency:

  • Guided Frequency Setup: A step-by-step guide to walk you through the process
  • Scan and IR Sync: The receiver scans the RF spectrum for the best available frequency and an IR sync automatically tunes the transmitter to the receiver frequency
  • Manual Group, Channel, or Frequency Assignment: Manually set the receiver and transmitter to the same group and channel number, or frequency

What are Groups and Channels?

To minimize interference, Shure wireless systems organize RF bands into predefined groups and channels. A group is a set of compatible frequencies within a frequency band. A single frequency within a group is a channel. Tune a receiver and transmitter to the best available channel within its group to set up your system.

Note: Because groups are band-dependent, some systems don't have multiple groups. Single-group bands have the same RF performance as those with multiple groups.

All receivers in the same band should be set to the same group. You can set them manually, or use the Guided Frequency Setup to walk you through the process.

Connect all the receivers in your system using Ethernet cables. For best results, use a network switch when connecting 3 or more receiver units.

Important! To avoid interference, before you begin:

Turn off all transmitters for the systems you are setting up. This prevents them from interfering with the frequency scan.

Turn on the following devices so they are operating as they would be during the presentation or performance. This will allow the scan to detect and avoid any interference from these devices:

  • Configured wireless systems or devices
  • Computers
  • Large LED panels
  • Effects processors
  • CD players

Using the Guided Frequency Setup

Set up a new system:

  1. Push the control knob on the receiver and select 1. Frequency Setup > 1.1 Guided Frequency Setup.
  2. Select Initialize My System and push the control knob to continue.
  3. Turn off all transmitters you plan to use with your system.
  4. Select start scan.
  5. After the scan is done, push the control knob to assign frequencies to the receiver.
  6. Turn on the transmitter you plan to use with this receiver.

  7. Align the infrared (IR) ports on the transmitter and receiver, and push the sync button.

  8. Once the sync is complete, the system is ready for use.

Add a new receiver to your system:

  1. Push the control knob and select 1. Frequency Setup > 1.1 Guided Frequency Setup.
  2. Select Add Receiver to My System.
  3. To change the group, rotate the control knob to select G:, push to select, rotate to change the number, push again to confirm.
  4. Select start scan.
  5. After the scan completes, push the control knob to apply the receiver channel.
  6. Turn on the transmitter you plan to use with this receiver.
  7. Align the infrared (IR) port on the transmitter with that on the receiver, and push the sync button.
  8. Once the sync is complete, the system is ready for use.

Manual Frequency Selection

To manually adjust group, channel or frequency:

  1. Select 1. Frequency Setup > 1.4 Manual Frequency Setup from the receiver menu.
  2. Use the control knob to select and adjust the group (G), channel (C), or frequency (MHz).
  3. Select apply and push the control knob to save.

Linking Two Transmitters to a Receiver

Linking two transmitters to a receiver offers the flexibility to provide a performer with either a handheld or bodypack transmitter to meet their preference. For performances requiring instrument changes, two bodypack transmitters can be linked to a single receiver.

Note: Only turn on and operate one transmitter at a time to prevent interference between the transmitters.

Syncing the Transmitters to the Receiver

Both transmitters must be individually linked to the receiver by performing an IR Sync.

  1. Turn on the first transmitter and perform an IR Sync with the receiver.
  2. Perform a sound check and adjust the transmitter gain if necessary. When finished, turn off the transmitter.
  3. Turn on the second transmitter and perform an IR Sync with the receiver.
  4. Test the transmitter at performance conditions and adjust the transmitter gain if necessary. When finished, turn off the transmitter.

Matching Audio Levels with Mic Offset

When linking two transmitters to a receiver, there may be a difference in volume levels between microphones or instruments. If this occurs, use the Mic Offset function to match the audio levels and eliminate audible volume differences between transmitters. If using a single transmitter, set Mic Offset to 0 dB.

  1. Turn on the first transmitter and perform a sound check to test the audio level. Turn off the transmitter when finished.
  2. Turn on the second transmitter and perform a sound check to test the audio level.
  3. If there is an audible difference in the sound level between the transmitters, navigate to the Mic Offset menu on the transmitter to increase or decrease the Mic Offset to match the audio levels.

Adding SLX-D to Other Shure Wireless Systems

Use Shure’s Wireless Workbench frequency coordination tool to find compatible frequencies across different Shure wireless systems. To get started, download the software from http://www.shure.com/wwb. For additional assistance, please visit http://www.shure.com/contact.

Radio Frequency (RF) Settings

Setting the Transmitter RF Power

The transmitter offers two RF power settings which determine the transmitter range.

  • Low = 1 mW
  • High = 10 mW

Use the Low setting when the transmitter and receiver are in close proximity.

  1. Navigate to the transmitter RF power menu.
  2. Use the menu button to select High or Low.
  3. Press enter to save.

Networking

The receiver uses an Ethernet connection to network with other components and includes an internal DHCP client for automatic network configuration when connected to a DHCP enabled router.

Connecting to a Network

  1. Insert an Ethernet cable in the Ethernet port on the rear of the receiver.
  2. Connect the cable to a computer or router.
  3. The port LEDs on the receiver will illuminate to indicate network connectivity and network traffic.

Automatic IP Addressing

  1. Enable a DHCP service on the server or use a DHCP enabled router.
  2. When the receiver is powered on, the DHCP server will automatically assign an IP address to the receiver.

Configuration Tips

  • Use shielded Cat 5 or better Ethernet cables to ensure reliable network performance
  • The LEDs on the Ethernet port illuminate indicating a network connection is active
  • The network icon illuminates when the receiver detects additional Shure devices on the network
  • All components must operate on the same subnet
  • Use multiple Ethernet switches to extend the network for larger installations

Network Troubleshooting

  • Use only one DHCP server per network
  • All devices must share the same subnet mask
  • All receivers must have the same level of firmware version installed
  • Check the LED status of the network icon on the front panel of each device.
    • If the network icon is not illuminated, check the cable connection and the LEDs on the Ethernet port.
    • If the Ethernet port LEDs are not illuminated and the cable is plugged in, replace the cable and recheck the LEDs and network icon.

Connecting to an External Control System

The SLX-D receiver is compatible with external control systems such as AMX or Crestron via Ethernet. Use only one controller per system to avoid messaging conflicts.

  • Connection: Ethernet (TCP/IP; SLX-D receiver is the client)
  • Port: 2202

Firmware Updates

Firmware is embedded software in each component that controls functionality. Periodically, new versions of firmware are developed to incorporate additional features and enhancements. To take advantage of design improvements, new versions of the firmware can be uploaded and installed using the Shure Update Utility (SUU). Download the SUU from https://www.shure.com/en-US/products/software/shure_update_utility.

Perform the following steps to update the firmware:

CAUTION! Ensure the device has a stable network connection during the update. Do not turn off the device until the update is complete.

  1. Connect the device and computer to the same network (set to the same subnet).
  2. Open the SUU application.
  3. Click the Updates button at the top of the window to open the Download Manager.

    Note: This button will be labeled either "Check for updates..." or "[#] updates available"

  4. From the Download Manager, select the desired firmware versions.

    Tip: The dropdown in the upper right allows you to quickly Select: All or Select: None.

    Note: After updating, you may need to clear your browser's cache to display updates to the device's web application.

  5. Click Download, and then Close the Download Manager. Downloaded firmware is listed and can be viewed and managed in the Firmware tab.
  6. From the Update Devices tab, select the new firmware and press Send Updates to begin the firmware update, which overwrites the existing firmware on the device.

Firmware Release Requirements

All devices are part of a network with multiple communications protocols that work together to ensure proper operation. The recommended best practice is that all devices are on an identical release. To view the firmware version of each device on the network, navigate to device configuration and look under  (Settings)  > Firmware.

The format for Shure device’s firmware is MAJOR.MINOR.PATCH. (Ex. 1.6.2 where 1 is the Major firmware level, 6 is the Minor firmware level, and 2 is the Patch firmware level.) At a minimum, devices that operate on the same subnet should have identical MAJOR and MINOR release numbers.

  • Devices of different MAJOR releases are not compatible.
  • Differences in the PATCH firmware release level may introduce undesired inconsistencies.
