Audix announced the release of the newest microphone for the installed sound industry, the M3 Tri-element Ceiling Microphone. Setting a new standard in tri-element microphone performance and design, the M3 is TAA compliant, offers fingertip control for adjusting cable length, and includes a UL rated plenum box solution above the ceiling tile.

In a statement about the M3 release, Gene Houck, National Sales Manager for Installed Sound said, “We received many requests from consultants, AV Integrators, and sound contractors looking for us to build a tri-element mic with the same high-performance standards as our highly successful M70, M40 and M55 conference ceiling microphones. The M3 is an answer to that call.”

Featuring a sleek profile with a contemporary design that is smaller than other multi-element mics on the market, other M3 features include:
• 100% RF shielding and immunity
• Gold diaphragm capsules with shielded and fully balanced circuits
• Low impedance design allows for extremely long cable runs (if required) without cross-talk or interference
• Frequency and pattern tailored for voice clarity and rejection of extraneous noise
• Evenly dispersed sound with undetectable phase
• High-quality silicone jacketed microphone cable with adjustable length
• Plenum-rated junction box with RJ45 connector
• All visible components of the microphone and cable are the same color: charcoal or white
• TAA compliant
• Very low self-noise
• Easy to install

Audix co-founder and VP of Sales, Cliff Castle, commented, “The innovative design and engineering of the M3 tri-element microphone makes it a stunning addition to the Audix family of conference ceiling mic solutions.”

The M3 is available exclusively through Audix authorized AV Integrators, Contractors, and Sound Installers.
