The Shure GLXD14R/WL185 Advanced Digital Wireless Cardioid Lavalier Microphone System (2.4 GHz) is a GLX-D Advanced Series digital wireless lavalier microphone system that features a rugged metal receiver housed in a half-rack chassis with two removable antennas. It is well suited for rackmounting in portable flight cases or for permanent installations in educational facilities, conference rooms, small to mid-sized venues, and houses of worship as well as broadcast studios.
GLX-D Advanced systems allow you to run up to 8 mics simultaneously in the same space. When used with the optional UA846Z2 frequency manager (available separately), up to 11 mics can operate simultaneously with improved RF reliability compared to standard GLX-D systems—ideal for installations with multiple wireless systems.
The GLXD14R/WL185 is configured with a bodypack transmitter and a WL185 cardioid lavalier microphone. The mic delivers natural vocal reproduction for presenters, performers, clergy, and lecturers working in high-volume environments.
The GLXD14R/WL185 combines digital audio clarity with reliable wireless, automatic frequency management, and intelligent battery rechargeability in a system that's convenient to rackmount, simple to operate, and ready to go at the push of a button.
The transmitter provides up to 16 hours of operation on an SB902 rechargeable lithium-ion battery with a transmission range up to 200'.
Digital Audio Clarity for Speech Applications
The system transmits audio with a flat, 20 Hz to 20 kHz frequency response and 120 dB of dynamic range, leaving the sound of your mic unaffected by the wireless components. Cardioid Lavalier Mic Optimised for Speech
The WL185 condenser microphone mic is optimised for speech intelligibility with a cardioid polar pattern that helps to reject unwanted noise.
Fast to Set Up and Simple to Operate
Press one button on the receiver and one on the transmitter, and the system is ready to operate.
When you power up the receiver, it automatically searches for the cleanest available frequency, avoiding time-consuming frequency setup.
If RF interference occurs, the receiver and transmitter automatically jump to a new clear frequency, with no interruption of the audio signal.
The front-panel display lets you see the channel you're operating, a level metre, and the remaining battery life of the transmitter.
The transmitter's gain can be wirelessly adjusted right from the receiver's front panel to optimise the audio signal.
Automatic transmitter power-off function conserves battery life when transmitter is not in use.
The receiver comes with rackmounting hardware, making it easy to instal it in a single rackspace with the antennas facing the front for better reception. GLXD1 Bodypack Transmitter
The GLXD1 features a rugged metal construction with an ergonomic design that provides a comfortable fit. It is also equipped with a TA4M 4-pin mic input jack and a convenient on/off switch can be operated by feel.
A red LED indicates low remaining battery life.
Solid Wireless Reliability with More Channels
True Digital Diversity Reception and 2.4 GHz Frequency Spectrum
True digital diversity means two antennas and two independent receiver modules work together to reduce RF signal dropouts.
The GLX-D Advanced operates in the globally unlicensed 2.4 GHz spectrum, free from TV-channel interference (for optimal results, use of the system is recommended in environments with limited Wi-Fi traffic). Optional UA846Z2 Frequency Manager
If you need to expand your system with more microphones, the UA846Z2 frequency manager (available separately) allows you to connect up to six GLXD4R receivers— improving RF reliability, distributing power to the receivers, and functioning as an antenna distribution system.
Connect a second UA846Z2 if you need more than six receivers, for up to nine channels in typical conditions and up to 11 channels in optimal conditions.
The UA846Z2 frequency manager constantly scans the RF spectrum and stores clean backup frequencies to avoid audio interruptions during a performance. Optional Remote-Mounted Antennas
Adding two PA805Z2-RSMA remote-mountable passive directional antennas (available separately) increases the range of your system and offers increased protection against interference.
Intelligent Battery Rechargeability for Uninterrupted Performance
- The GLXD1 bodypack transmitter runs on an intelligent SB902 rechargeable lithium-ion battery (included).
- The battery provides up to 16 hours of continuous use on a full charge.
- The SB902 battery can be recharged in the GLXDR4 receiver's internal charging bay (located on the front panel). The charging bay can also be used to recharge a spare battery while the transmitter is in use.
- Alternately, the SB902 can be recharged while in the bodypack transmitter with the included USB charging cable.
- Just a 15-minute quick charge provides 1.5 hours of use.
- One SB902 battery provides up to 10,000 hours of regular use, equivalent to 2500 alkaline batteries.
- The SB902's remaining battery life can be metered in hours and minutes from the receiver's front panel.
Add Functionality to Your System
Shure offers a variety of headset, instrument, and handheld microphone options to adapt your GLX-D Advanced system as your needs evolve.
The WL93 omnidirectional lavalier mic offers consistent pickup even when the performer turns away from the mic.
The discrete MX153 miniature earset mic provides exceptional clarity in spoken word applications. Vocalists/Presenters
The GLXD2 handheld transmitter is available with a variety of mic capsules for presenters and performers who prefer the flexibility of a handheld microphone—including SM58, SM86, Beta 58A, and Beta 87A capsules.
The WA302 guitar cable lets you connect the bodypack transmitter to a guitar or bass. Instrumentalists
The WB98H/C flexible gooseneck instrument microphone attaches to brass, woodwind, and percussion instruments.
