related to wireless audio equip for A1

this is for my XH-A1

Events i am covering got no good auido systems, to give me a xlr input. They are grabbing some simple two mic, amplifier and speaker kind of system.

I will be covering same events-same settings, next weeks too.

i want to fix a button wireless mic to the main person on stage and one to speaker(guy standing n ntroducing everyone, to that guy)

and if possible, i want to record one more audio, the one coming from the speakers(hum, check finger tapping etc and claps from audience)

simply- i want to get good audio, where i dont own audio equipment or the equipment has no hole left for my cam.

can you suggest me, the cheap n best wireless collar button wireless mics (receiver mic input for A1 is just one)

I dont care for stereo, actually i want to mix mainperson audio+commentator to right channel, and rest to left channel through two xlr inputs. I want this thing complete wireless, so i own the control on my audio.

This is just like shooting stage drama, repenting about audio while editing. but i have 4 more events to cover, so.

Well, I'll admit, your question is kinda confusing... but here's my recommendation to you:

Get a couple Sennheiser ENG100W wireless units. They're the best out there. You can put two transmitters on the same frequency to pick up with one reciever, getting your automatic mix to one XLR input (this can have some problems, depending on the frequency band and your surrounding area). Then just get another wireless reciever with a plug in XLR transmitter which you can put on the back of a shotgun put on a boom stand somewhere near the stage. That'll be for your ambient noise. Run this to a separate receiver on your second XLR channel.

Certainly not the best way to do things, but it should work in a pinch. Ideally you should get a small field mixer like the Sound Devices 302 or something similar.
