Our take on the Shure Centraverse™ CVO by Crutchfield's Ralph Graves
The Shure Centraverse CVO hanging condenser mic was designed to accurately capture the sound of a live choir. It comes with its own integrated wire hanger that's angled to allow you to point the mic at your sound source. The attached 25-foot XLR cable gives you plenty of reach to run back to your mixer after placing the microphone.
The microphone's cardioid polar pattern can pick up multiple of singers, giving you a natural-sounding vocal blend. Shure's CommShield® technology guards against unwanted radio frequency interference from smartphones and other wireless devices.

Overview: Shure Centraverse Installed Sound Microphones are designed to deliver high quality audio for meeting rooms and houses of worship. This CVO Overhead microphone suspends from the ceiling to provide discreet sound reinforcement for choirs and other ensembles. At the end of its 25' cable is a preamplifier with an XLR connector. The CVO comes with a wire aiming hanger and a snap-fit foam windscreen.
Pickup Pattern: The CVO has a cardioid polar pattern, with a tailored response designed for clear reproduction of speech and vocals.
Phantom Power: Condenser microphones require phantom power to operate. A 48-volts DC power supply is recommended for the CVO, however, it can operate with lower voltages. Phantom power is usually provided by most mixers or audio interfaces where the microphone will be connected.
Commshield: All Centraverse series microphones are equipped with Commshield RF Filtering technology, which guards against unwanted RF interference from portable wireless devices, such as smartphones.
Mounting: The Shure CVO is a low-profile microphone that is designed to be suspended from the ceiling, in front of, and above the heads of, the performers. The microphones should be aimed at the back row of performers. The included wire hanger lets you direct the microphone in the direction of the sound source.
3:1 Rule: If you are using more than one Shure Centraverse CVO overhead microphones, the distance between the mics should be three times greater than the distance between the microphone and the sound source. In other words, if the microphones are placed 2-3 feet from the performers, the microphones should be 6-9 feet apart from each other.
Connector: The preamplifier has a male XLR connector for plugging the microphone into the mixer or audio console.
