That's the problem, I can't really get inside the mic without possibly damaging the capsule. It's a weird/rare model, so I'm going to trust my tech to do that eventually. I know I'm being annoying and making this more difficult than it should be, I was just curious for some insight in the mean time. I'll check all that with a multi meter. I do know the impedance is lower at 150, they included that on the model label.
