Where do you wedding guys..........?

Where do you wedding guys set the sensativity and af out on your Senheisers. I just got the ew100 g2, 00 seems a little too hot as does the -10, but -20 seems not hot enough on the sensativity, so Im thinking -10, and on the AF out Im thinking -12? This is on the grooms mic...Thanks!!!

Shaun,

I use the same settings as Nate. By clipping the mic low on the groom's lapel -- just above where he buttons the coat -- I get almost equal levels from his voice and the bride's voice. Saves a little time with tweaking later on. Good luck.

I use -20 on the mic and -6 to -18 on the receiver depending on the situation.
