Parle TCM-XEX Installation

The ceiling microphone is an expansion ABV device designed for use as a second microphone. However, it cannot work as a standalone microphone and must function along with a TCM-XA mic or TCM-X microphone. The unit should be installed away from sources of heat, including radiators and vents. The rooms should be adequately ventilated to ensure a free flow of air, and the temperatures do not go beyond 32 degrees.

The general instructions for installation include:

  • A maximum distance of 33 feet between the plenum box and the microphone (translates to 10 meters).
  • A maximum length of 330 feet or 100 meters between the plenum box of either TCM-XA or TCM-X.
  • A 7-18 feet height range from the floor for both TCM-XA and TCM-X.
  • You may need a Tile Bridge Kit to facilitate some mounting configurations and comply with some local standards.
  • The plenum boxes for TCM-XA and TCMA-X are usually mounted above the ceiling, while the mic fixes flush to the top.
  • The microphone mount washer and the plenum box have mounting holes for a seismic cable, although it is optional.

Installation Options

There are many installation options for the ceiling microphone. You can choose the above ceiling tile mounting or the corner or tile bridge installation.

The TCM-XA or TCM-X corner or tile bridge installation installs them on a corner where the tile mounting bar and Tile Bridge meet.
