DBX 4800


BSW PART: 4800

Grab the reins of stampeding sound frequencies and drive them home with the DBX 4800.

This complete equalization and loudspeaker management system boasts a powerful 96 kHz DSP engine, standard analog and digital I/O, a QVGA display, and multiple control surfaces to provide all the processing, flexibility and control you need for both installation and live use.

The 4800 includes four inputs and eight outputs with both analog and AES/EBU XLR connectivity. In addition to standard system processing functions, its 96 kHz processing engine offers insert processing functions to customize the processing path for your application, with extremely low latency and extended frequency response. Signal Routing, extensive EQ, Bandpass Filters, classic dbx Dynamics, and Feedback Suppression give you remarkable control of your sound, and a full color display combined with intuitive front panel controls and an easy to use GUI will have you riding tall in the sonic saddle no matter where you roam.
