BBE has introduced the DS48 digital loudspeaker management system, which has 4 inputs and 8 outputs with 10 configuration templates.
A choice of operating and crossover modes include 4 x 2-way, 2 x 3-way + 2 aux, 2 x 4-way, 1 x 5-way + 3 aux, mono dist., stereo dist., LCRS with mono subs, 4 x 4 processor and muted/flat startup.
Other notable features include performance limiters on each output providing complete control over attack, release and threshold parameters, variable high and low pass filters, plus a choice of 6dB, 12dB, 18dB, 24dB and 48dB Butterworth, Bessel or Linkwitz-Riley frequency response curves.
Independent control of each high and low pass filter allows asymmetric crossover bands to be created. The BBE DS48 also offers XLR inputs/outputs and selectable line voltage and can be controlled from a PC via an RS232 connection.
Carrying a 5 year warranty, the DS48 is recommended for live sound rigs and installations.
