dbx® Professional Products Offer dB10 and dB12 Direct Boxes

The dbx® dB10 Passive and dB12 Active Direct Boxes Offer Premium Performance In An Attractive, Rugged Package

LAS VEGAS, Nevada – dbx® Professional Products, a Salt Lake City-based manufacturer of professional signal processing products and a division of Harman International, introduces two new direct injection boxes into the product line. Representing a new category of product offering for dbx, the dB10 Passive Direct Box and dB12 Active Direct Box build on the dbx heritage, consistently offering customers innovative and dependable professional signal processing solutions. The aggressive styling of their solid, road-worthy, cast-metal chassis is a departure from the usual utilitarian look of most direct boxes.

The dB10 Passive Direct Box includes all the basic features you would expect from a work horse direct box – ¼? input and parallel “thru? jacks, transformer isolation, balanced XLR output, and ground lift switch – but provides additional value not found in budget direct boxes. Its 3-position pad switch easily accommodates instrument, line level and speaker level signals, while further versatility is added with its selectable polarity invert and high-cut filtering functions. Premium chrome toggle switches and a gold-plated Neutrik® XLR output jack, as well as a first-class custom dbx mu-metal-shielded isolation transformer, ensure the highest-quality signal path. All switches are recessed to provide protection from accidental operation or damage.

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’s high input impedance and low-noise buffered active circuitry faithfully preserve the tone and signal characteristics of the instrument source. It also includes a custom dbx mu-metal-shielded isolation transformer, tailored to complement the active circuitry and provide a clean balanced output signal.

In addition to their rugged design, a unique feature of these direct boxes is the heavy-duty molded rubber skid pad which not only provides a solid, non-skid surface, but is contoured to mate with the tiered surface of the chassis top, making stable stacking of multiple boxes possible for a cleaner, compact arrangement.

The dbx dB10 Passive and dB12 Active Direct Boxes are now shipping with an estimated street price of $99.95 and $129.95 respectively.
