Re: mics under matt
This would work great for the slams but do NOTHING for the kicks and punches unfortunately.
I was the Supervising Sound Mixer on the Tough Enough I (MTV) with WWF. We would just use a long shotgun from the ropes (like the Sennheiser MKH70) or even a shorter mic like the MKH60 or the MKH416. It needs to be pretty close to work if their is lots of music and announcing. We also experimented with PZM (boundary) mics planted overhead. One right in the middle of the ring worked pretty well but again bleed from the environment has a lot to do with your success with any solution.
