Phantom Powering the Modern Condenser Microphone: A Practical Look at Conditions for Optimized Performance

Phantom Powering a microphone is a decades old concept with powering conventions and methods that may have become obsolete, ineffective, or inefficient. Modern sound techniques, including those of live sound settings, now use many condenser microphones in settings that were previously dominated by dynamics. As a prerequisite for considering a modern phantom power specification or method, we study the efficiencies and requirements of microphones in typical multiple mic and high SPL settings in order to gain understanding of circuit and design requirements for the maximum dynamic range performance.
