Bryan316 Posted June 13, 2008 Report Share Posted June 13, 2008 Allright. Here's the concept. Permanently installing an X2 digital wireless transmitter into my bass. It's such an evil idea, but it's so GOOD!!! Electronics cavity on the bottom of the bass, transmitter cavity on the top of the bass. No output jack needed, no cables anywhere. All internally wired, and just a single antenna wire sticking out the body. But instead of the wire dangling, I'll route/chisel a very tiny, curved channel into the back of the body, following the contour around to the bottom strap button. Then, lay the antenna wire into the slot and epoxy over it to seal it in. Gut the X2 transmitter and scrap the plastic housing. Scrap the extra length where the battery pocket is, and just get a guitar body battery compartment. One for my preamp, and one for my wireless system. Without the excess housing size and battery area, I can get that pocket down to about 2" by 3" by only 3/4" deep. I may even test to see if the shape of my body will allow me to make one long cavity, half preamp half transmitter. Then I just drill some LED holes to the cavity cover plate, and power/channel buttons to the front of the body. I figure, if I'm gonna invest in the X2 in another couple months and am getting the right-angle cables and getting one transmitter per bass on stage, why not cut out the middle man? No need to rip the transmitter off my straps to pack away my axes. No need to unplug the jacks so they don't wear down the preamp circuit battery. I'm already looking at my CAD mockup, to see if this will all fit. I just gotta go buy the XDS95 and gut one transmitter. And I'll STILL be 2009 compliant!!! \m/ \m/ Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
