Audix F2 Instrument Microphone

Designed, assembled and tested by Audix in the USA, the f2 is a Fusion Series dynamic instrument microphone used for stage and studio applications. The f2 is characterized with a hypercardioid pickup pattern for isolation and feedback control and is equipped with a LM™ (Low Mass) diaphragm for natural, accurate sound reproduction.

The f2 is lightweight, compact and easy to position. With a wide frequency response of 52 Hz - 15 kHz and the ability to handle sound pressure levels of 139 dB, the f2 is an excellent choice for miking instruments with a percussive nature such as rack toms, congas, saxophone, guitar cabinets and brass.

Roadworthy construction includes a precision cast zinc alloy body, black coat finish, laser etched model number, steel mesh grill, gold XLR connector and a tension-fit heavy duty nylon mic clip.

Transformerless design, low impedance and balanced output allow for interference-free performance even with long cable runs.

Designed Applications
The intended application the microphone is designed for.
Number of Microphones
This is the number of microphones that are included in the package.

Polar Patterns
The polar pattern of a microphone determines how sensitive it is to receiving sounds as they arrive at different angles.
Hypercardioid
Transducer Type
The transducer type is the manner in which the audio signal is converted into an electrical signal.
Dynamic
Address
The configuration of the capsule determining on which side the microphone is sung or spoken into.
Frequency Response
The range of frequencies the speaker will reproduce (lowest frequency to the highest). Bigger is better, meaning the wider the range, the better. The optimal range is 20 - 20,000 Hz (which is the range of human hearing).
52 - 15,000 Hz
Sensitivity
An efficiency or sensitivity rating tells you how effectively a speaker converts power into sound. The higher the number, the more efficient the speaker and the louder it will play with the same input power. An efficient speaker helps you maximize your available power. Most sensitivity ratings measure the speaker's output with 1 watt of input, 1 meter from the speaker. Some speakers' sensitivity is measured with 2.83 volts of input, instead of 1 watt.
 
Efficiency (1w/1m) is not an accurate indicator of a subwoofer's output capability and should not be used as a comparison to other speakers or subwoofers to determine which one is "louder".
Not specified by manufacturer
Signal-to-Noise Ratio
This spec compares the strength of the signal to the level of background noise. A higher value indicates less background noise.
Not specified by manufacturer
Maximum Sound Pressure Level
This is the maximum sound pressure level that the microphone is capable of accepting and transferring into an electrical signal.
Not specified by manufacturer
Output Impedance
This is the amount of impedance that the microphone allows.
580 ohms
Pad(s)
A pad is a term used for built in attenuation in a microphone or pro audio channel strip.
Roll Off Filter
A low frequency filter found on microphones commonly expressed with a threshold in Hz and a slope in -dB/Octave.
Power Requirement
Condenser microphones require an external power source to operate. Typically a +48v DC charge commonly refereed to as Phantom Power.
Connection Type
This is the manner in which the microphone connects to the source unit. For wired microphones, this is the connector that directly connects the microphone to the mixer (or other input source unit). For wireless microphones, this is the connection that connects the microphones receiver to the mixer (or other input source unit).
XLR
Length
The overall length of the microphone.
Diameter (inches)
A straight line running from one side of a circle or other rounded geometric figure through the center to the other side, or the length of this line

Carrier Frequency Range
The frequencies of radio waves used by wireless communication transmitters and receivers. VHF 30 to 300 MHz, wave length 1 to 10 m UHF 300 to 3000 MHz, wave length 10 to 100 cm
Operating Range
The maximum span of distance between The Transmitter and Receiver.
Number of Channels
The number of different frequency Channels that a wireless microphone system is capable of using.
Transmitter Type
The type of transmitter in a wireless microphone system.
Receiver Type
The type of receiver used in a wireless microphone system.
Diversity
True Diversity receivers have two radio modules and two antennas. Diversity receivers have one radio module and two antennas, although some times the second antenna may not be obviously visible. Non-diversity receivers have only one antenna.

Audix F series RULES!!!

April 11, 2011

I'm going to start this by stating that these are just as good as the D series. I know every drummer out there wants the D series just because its the D series. There is honestly no change in sound I had a show using those and knew I had to get them, I could only afford the F series and I am so glad I saved that money. They sound remarkable the build is fantastic, very sturdy metal and I have not had one issue with them. They can make a horrible drum set sound nice and a good drum set sound amazing. Buy these PLEASE you wont regret it one bit.
