Audio dropouts are irregular interruptions or lack of audio signal. Common causes for a weak unreliable signal are:
- The receiver and the transmitter are located too far away from each other
- The signal is being absorbed by objects between the two devices
- Other devices are operating on the same frequency
Catchbox Lite audio signal can be interrupted when used in a room with many other devices using wi-fi (smartphones, laptops, etc.). In environments like this and for audiences above 100 people we recommend using Catchbox Plus - it operates in the DECT / DECT 6.0 frequency band.
When setting up Catchbox Lite, position the antennas of the receiver in a 45-degree pattern (like the letter V).
Troubleshooting & solution
- Ensure the correct working range - check if the receiver and transmitter are within the recommended range (Line of Sight):
- Catchbox Lite - 30 m / 100 ft
- Catchbox Plus - 100 m / 330 ft
- Catchbox Mod - working range depends on the 3rd party beltpack transmitter specification
- Adjust the receiver and transmitter placement - try to ensure as little obstacles between them as possible to avoid signal absorption
- Check for other devices that use the same frequency band and try to reduce the number of such devices around (if possible).
