The BBE 382i series delivers all the sound-improving benefits of a Sonic Maximizer with the convenience of ganged-stereo operation. The BBE 382i is suitable for any unbalanced audio source that uses 1/4" unbalanced TS connections. It's perfectly suited to a guitar or bass rig.
Two Knobs, Simple To Use
Turn the Contour knob to add delay times to lower frequencies on a curve. This counteracts the natural phase delay between the bass frequencies and high frequencies. Time-aligning your sound ensures that the whole signal reaches people at once, brightening the tone and giving the signal the "live feel" of what's happening on stage. The Process knob handles exactly how much of the sound is being effected.
Full-range speakers often reproduce the lowest and highest frequencies less efficiently than all the stuff in the middle. However, BBE's Sonic Maximizer series augment these frequencies intelligently and in conjunction with their delay curve, offering a solid, full-range signal in a single box.
With unbalanced 1/4-inch TS inputs and outputs, you can connect your instrument to the BBE 362 Sonic Maximizer when you're recording/performing. The +20dB of headroom allows you to process high-gain sources. BBE's build quality maintains your tone even post processing, with a 108 dB signal-to-noise ratio the dreaded "noise" monster can be kept at bay.
