DBX 234XL Stereo 2/3 Way, Mono 4-Way Crossover with XLR Connectors Have you checked on the new revolutionary dbx® 234XL Crossover? At first glance, the units immediately impose a sublime impression of greatness. And, yes it is! For as you scrutinize into its inner structure, you will discover elements that you wouldn’t have thought could be done in a crossover. As you turn the controls, you will see how extremely well built these units can be: it commands great precision, and the feel is a solid “click”! When you open the box, you won’t find the external power supply that accompanies most processors in this price range. It’s because we understand how difficult external power supplies can be to work with; and even though it costs a little more, we put the high quality power supply right in the unit. All the inputs and outputs are TRS differentially balanced ¼” jacks that are bolted down to the chassis. This “nutting down” of the jacks ensures that even if someone steps on a cable plugged into the unit, it is not going to tear up the circuit board inside. All dbx® crossovers feature Linkwitz-Riley 24 dB per octave filters, the professional standard. With two switches on the back panel, you first select whether you’re operating your system in stereo 2-way, 3-way, or mono 4-way. Another back panel switch also selects whether or not you want to mono sum the LF (subwoofer) out. This makes dbx® edge out its competitors. Most systems that use a sub-woofer are mono subbed to take advantage of amplifier power and because low frequencies are non-directional. The back panel switches allow you to select the range of the crossover frequencies individually for both channels. The crossover frequency controls have a green LED that indicates the X10 switch on the back panel is activated; so, you don’t need to check on the switch position on the back each time you wonder where it is set. All the switches are on the back panel because it could be disastrous if you were to change them mid-program. On the front panel are LEDs that indicate whether the unit is in mono or stereo mode. Each channel has an input gain control for proper level setting. There is a recessed 40 Hz low cut (HPF) on each channel to remove unwanted low frequencies. Both the low and high outputs on each channel have a gain control ranging from - to +6 dB, to allow muting of individual outputs and for level matching. Besides, these outputs each have phase reverse switches that help get you out of a bind without having to reconfigure your system. These phase reverse switches may be internally re-configured as mute switches. All these advantages of a professional product, you get only from the producer of the world’s finest processors, who have been serving you for over 20 years. You can expect that the dbx® crossover has been tested to the highest professional standards at a price that’s too low to admit.
