Set 'em up Joe

It's simple to set up the BLX288/PG58's transmitter and receiver. Press the Group button on one receiver channel and it scans for the clearest group and channel. Then just set a transmitter to the same group and channel settings. Repeat the process for the other channel and transmitter and you're ready to go. The Groups and Channels can also be set manually. You can run up to 12 systems simultaneously depending on channel availability and RF environment.

Twice the fun-ction

The BLX288/PG58 system allows two vocalists to roam the stage, offering Shure sound quality in an easy-to-use package. It's a duet of effortless functionality.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I was so happy with the customer service I received in ordering this item. They work great but more than that no more than 10 minutes after ordering the product someone called and asked if I had any questions and let me know I missed the shipping deadline by 30 minutes so my item would show up on a Friday and not Thirsday. Thanks for being awesome!!

Pros: Easy set up. Multiple mic ends to easily know who is on what mic. Battery life indicator really helps

Cons:

Great Range, Easy set-up

Features

Overview: The Shure BLX288/PG58 Dual Channel Handheld Wireless Microphone System consists of the BLX88 Dual Channel Wireless Receiver, and two PG58 Handheld Microphones, each with a BLX2 transmitter. You can operate up to 12 compatible systems per frequency band (depending upon your region). The system operates on the H10 frequency band (542 to 572 MHz), and has a transmitting range of approximately 300 feet.

BLX88: The BLX88 Dual Wireless Receiver features one-touch QuickScan frequency selection to help you find the best open frequency for less interference. You can also manually change the group and channel assignments, if needed. It has dual XLR mic outputs, as well as dual 1/4" instrument-level output jacks. The BLX88 is simple to set up, and has a microprocessor-controlled internal diversity antenna system. Each channel has two LED indicators. The audio LED indicates the strength of the incoming signal, and glows green for normal and red for overload. The ready LED indicates the system is ready for use and receiving the transmitter signal. It is powered by the supplied 12-volt DC power supply.

PG58/BLX2 Wireless Handheld Mic: The PG58 is a rugged, dynamic handheld microphone for professional sound reinforcement and project studio recording applications. The PG58 has a cardioid polar pattern, and provides robust sound with emphasized bass, and maximum isolation from other sources. It is designed for close-up vocals (6" or less from mouth), and can be handheld or mounted on a stand (using the supplied adjustable stand adapter). The PG58 can withstand rough handling, featuring a hardened steel mesh grille, and an internal shock mount for reduced handling noise. In addition to the stand adapter, the microphone comes with a zippered storage bag. The BLX2 transmitter is powered by 2 "AA" alkaline batteries (included), which provide approximately 14 hours of battery life. The LED indicator turns red to signify low battery with approximately 60 minutes of battery life remain. Optional rechargeable batteries can also be used. The BLX2 has independent group and channel buttons for easy setup. The BLX2 comes with a black identification cap. Optional color ID caps are available from the manufacturer.
