That would depend on what you are plugging it into, and how far you are running the cable. Ask Darrell.

the powered mic can do everything and more can't it?

I don't know to much about the giant squid mics, but I do know that a powered mike will allow you to-do more, now whether its powered by a battery near the mike or whether its phantom powered is where you run into other problems, usually phantom power will allow the mike to receive a much higher amount of volume rather than the battery. I could be wrong here but, I believe that if you use a powered mike, you can run the mike up to 50 ft, I've personally done 30ft. Anybody correct me if I am wrong.
