AT8646QM mounting/connections: Connect a flexible two-wire shielded cable, such as AT8300, to the screw-terminals on the bottom of the AT8646QM, after bringing the cable-end up through the 2″ mounting hole. Note that the terminal order is 1-3-2. The terminal numbers are on the circuit board and on the terminal strip. Connect the shield to Terminal 1, balanced signal/phantom power to Terminals 2 and 3. Connect the positiveŒ signal lead to Terminal 2, in accordance with industry convention. Make certain that the screw-terminals are on the bare wire strands, not the insulation, and that there are no bare wires or loose strands that could touch each other. Once the wiring is complete, carefully position the shock mount on the mounting surface and attach it with the included screws, or with #6 hardware. Secure the mic cable to the bottom of the mounting surface near the shock mount, using a cable clamp or similar device. Leave a small loopŒ of cable hanging freely below the shock mount. If the cable is pulled snug, it will bypassŒ the suspension and reduce its effectiveness. Securing the cable also helps protect the screw-terminal connections.
