Dbx® Professional Produtcs introduces two new direct injection boxes into the product line : the dB10 Passive Direct Box and dB12 Active Direct Box.
The dB10 Passive Direct Box includes ¼” input and parallel “thru” jacks, transformer isolation, balanced XLR output, and ground lift switch. Its 3-position pad switch accommodates instrument, line level and speaker level signals, and selectable polarity invert and high-cut filtering functions are also provided. All switches are recessed to provide protection from accidental operation or damage. Output jacks are gold-plated Neutrik®, and the isolation transformer is shielded wih a custom dbx mu-metal-shield.
The dB12 Active Direct Box includes all the features of the dB10, but in an active version. Driven by phantom power supplied by a mixing console’s mic input, the dB12’s active circuitry operates from 20V to 48V. A green power LED is included to show status of the phantom power source. The dB12 also includes a custom dbx mu-metal-shielded isolation transformer, tailored to complement the active circuitry.
In addition to their rugged design, these direct boxes include molded rubber skid pad which is contoured to mate with the tiered surface of the chassis top, making stable stacking of multiple boxes possible.
The dbx dB10 Passive and dB12 Active Direct Boxes are available in March at an estimated street price of $99.95 and $129.95 respectively.
