I guess the adapter transforms into 48v from the 1.5v from transmitter. Therefore the suggestion of hakukani for hard wiring is totally wrong.Yes it does. That's exactly what the adapter does. Leeches from the power for the belt pack transmitter of your wireless system.
Even though all the DPA mics size wise would clip on a sax, the 4099 is their first mic that will actually work with a wireless system. That is the beauty of that mic. The also have a screw on end that is meant to use with adaptors they sell. One of them is the standard XLR adaptor to connect to a mic pre with phantom power. Since all the wireless manufacturers seem to have their own proprietary plugs, the you need to order the specific adaptor from DPA to fit you system. I use a Sennhesier wireless, so I got the sennheiser adaptor from DPA. These can also be ordered from sweetwater.com. You actually wouldn't want to hardwire your wireless connector on. Then you wouldn't be able to use it with other systems or the XLR adaptor.attery. I'm sure that DPA would not design a mic that couldn't be powered from a transmitter/beltpack.
I got an answer straight from the DPA. Here is what they wrote:Most microphones don't use 48 volts supplied by the phantom power. Most wireless mikes can be powered from a battery. I'm sure that DPA would not design a mic that couldn't be powered from a transmitter/beltpack.
My problem is that the guy gave me a wrong adapter suggestion (DAD 6017) for the AKG PT450 transmitter instead of the PT45 transmitter that my question was. Like FrankR suggested above, the site recommends the DAD3052 adapter for the AKG PT40 but does not give recomendation for the PT45.Dear Thanasis
The mic works on 5-50 volts and the AKG PT450 supplies sufficient power. You need the adapter DAD6017 to make it work.
You can find a complete overview of the adapters and transmitters on the following link.

Of course the AKG PT450 is an expensive system, and I think of going to the Sennheiser EW 172 G3 system instead.The 4099 requires a phantom power voltage of between 5-50v. The AKG PT45 provides 4V which is unfortunately not enough to operate the 4099. AKG does make other systems that provide enough voltage (PT450 for example, which would be used with our DAD6017 adapter). Please let me know if there is any other information I can provide, and feel free to contact me at the number below with any additional questions or concerns.
