Hi!
I have seen that the PA2 display show 4 different mic positions during the auto eq wizard instead of the 4 positions showned in the manual!
Which are the right we have to follow: the 4 showned in the manual or the 4 showned in the drive rack PA2 display?

I have an old RTA-M mic that i was used to use with my first and second drive rack PA (i owned about 8 years ago); now that I'm going to purchuase a new drive rack PA2 I don't know if the mic is still perfectly full working or if it as some audio issues.
Is there a way to check the quality and the functionality of the mic?
I'm thinking about the AUDIX TM-1: is it a better choise from the RTA-M that I have and is it full compatible with the drive rack PA2?
Many many thanks
Marco

    Any measurement mic, of any similar quality (or better) will work.

    Agreed, assuming the mic hasn't been knocked over and hit the floor several times

    Many thanks! And what about the 4 measurement mic position: are the manual suggested 4 or the pa2 on screen to be applayed?

    That is to allow summing (averaging) of the results to eliminate any nulls or hot spots. The locations really don't matter too much, as long as they are diverse... but I'd go with the screen.
