Can I assume that any mic plugged into any of the G2 EW-100 systems is a dynamic mic?

I what to be able to use the plug in mic transmitter with a lav mic, for example. They just sit around most of the time and maybe with an 1/8" to xlr adapter I could make use of them?

That way I'd just find a used receiver, and add to my capabilities.
To use a dynamic mic. with the SK 100 transmitter you will need a special cable.

The SK 100 puts out 5V DC plug-in-power voltage to power an electret tie microphone (eg: ME 2) - so - to use a dynamic mic. you will need a special cable that includes DC blocking capacitors in the XLR to prevent this DC voltage getting into the microphone.

I've done it. I would say it works, but a lot less than fine. The problem is that the dynamic mic signal needs a lot of amplification, which puts the bodypack transmitter at the upper end of it's capabilities. Which makes for a noisy result.

Far better, cleaner result comes from the
SKP 100 plug-in transmitter
that's designed for exactly this use. Much better resulting signal. If you want professional sounding wireless audio using a dynamic mic, use the SKP 100 plug-in. Really.
