Phantom III – 48V Phantom Power Supply Overview
Different condenser microphones specify different amounts of required phantom power.
As a rule these ratings can range from 48 volts all the way down to 9 volts. Fortunately,
there is some flexibility in terms of matching phantom voltage to your mic. A rough rule
of thumb would be ?more is better.?
For example, a 24-volt condenser mic will run perfectly on 48 volts. In fact, mics rated
at as little as 9 volts can often operate on 48 volts, but you should check with the manufacturer
first. Conversely, a mic will generally perform best driven by not less than its rated voltage
so, for a 48V mic, you would obtain best results with 48 volts of phantom power. The
Phantom III is a great choice for the above needs.
