I want to try a pair of Km184 for field recording next week and can´t find any informations about packing them inside a Røde Blimp in ORTF Setup. Does anyone of you found a way to do this ?
thanks for your help

Not KM184s, but it's kinda the same setup I guess: http://thesoundmyheadmakes.blogspot.de/2011/10/semi-stealth-recording-with-my-new-cm3s.html
I did the same thing with CM3s in a Rycote windshield a few days ago and have to say, that the mics were pretty vulnerable to wind. I guess this comes from the small distance between the capsules and the windshield. Therefore you should strongly try to avoid wind.
You might want to build yourself some shortened XLR-plugs, so that you are a bit more flexible in adjusting the angle of the mics (don't know how long the KM184s are compared to the CM3).
I cut away the ends of a XLR-plug, which looks kinda like this:
Hope, that this helps you a bit.
