SPKR MiK: How to make a microphone from a speaker.
Cloth Covered Banana Cables
You can go directly from the speaker to the XLR connector - that's what Yamaha did. The DI transformer will just help with getting closer to the proper impedance for a mic line.
Is the internal DI box a must? or can I just go from the speaker to the XLR connecter?
Thanks — a nice clear tutorial. Note, though, that the aim of these mics isn't actually to 'pick up more low frequencies'. that's a bit of an Internet myth. The LFs these things generate is a resonant frequency, which is a kinda different thing — mroe like a one-note synth than a mic. And that's why they're outstanding for adding beef to a kick drum but less good on pitched instruments like bass and electric guitar...
