The DBX 223XS Stereo 2-Way/Mono 3-Way Crossover with XLR Connectors is a dual channel. A crossover is essential for efficient PA operation because it filters the full band input signal into specific frequencies that match a speaker's optimum frequency-reproduction range. This leaves the amplifier free to use its full power on the usable signal, eliminating distortion and delivering clear sound.
The secret to making speakers sound great lies with the crossover you use. With the DBX 223xs Crossover you'll get great performance, ultra-low-noise, rugged reliability and four decades of DBX knowledge and expertise in building the world's finest processors. The 223xs uses precision filters to separate the audio signal and direct the correct frequencies to your loudspeaker drivers. By directing only, the specific frequency bands to each speaker driver the 223xs leaves your amplifiers free to use their full power on the usable signal eliminating distortion and giving your PA system a cleaner and better sound.
The DBX 223xs is a dual channel crossover with all the features you would expect from a professional product. It features Linkwitz-Riley 24dB per octave filters, independent output gain controls for level matching, output phase inversion, 40 Hz low cut filter, and optional mono summing of the low frequency output. Everything in the design exudes great precision from the solid click controls to the high quality XLR inputs and outputs.
