Hi All,

I bit the bullet and bought a DCX. I'm ordering the connectors etc today.

I'm using integrated amps as 'powers' at the moment. Would I need to put resistors in line to attenuate, or will the vol. pots be sufficient? (amps are cyrus 1 mids/tweets, audiolab 8000a bass)


Cheers

Rob

My experience is that vol pots (the electronic ones on the behringer) are NOT sufficient, they only have a +/- 15dB range, less if the various bands need different levels. Also, at high atten and gain levels, the sound gets worse.
I'm using 30dB inline attenuators on the behringer outputs, but I have efficient speakers. 20dB att should also work.

Hi Jan,

I'll be using my av receivers preouts to get me started.(using the rceivers vol.pot for the time being) I guess I was wondering whether the dcx's outputs would overdrive my integrated amps input stage.

Cheers

Rob

Default Just to let you know

I just discovered this very interesting thread.

Some time ago I posted the results of my evaluation of the DCX2496 in this thread High-End Active XO .

If you are interested you could see on my homepage http://freerider.dyndns.org/anlage/ueberblick.htm how I interfaced the DCX2496. The text is in german but there are a lot of pictures and links.

Fellas,

FYI. There's a forum over on Yahoo devoted strictly to DCX2496 discussion.

Hi Charley,


great job well done! I read interested your homepage activating the Quadral Vulkan.

I´m using also a M Audio 2496 soundcard for testing with CAMS32 - an alternative program to HobbyBox. I´m inviting you for discussing your Behringer DCX2496 and Thel poti solution with us in German DIY forums. Before I put the links to your homepage I hope you are at home due to the fact that in Bavarian summer vacations starts now.

Hi All,

I will admit that I have not been following this thread. I will be getting a dcx unit here shortly and want to know if anyone has found a digital amp/receiver that has enough inputs to power the speaker channels needed. If you want to do a 3-way then of course 6 inputs are needed.

Thanks for any cheap solutions given,

wasser

Default contact with other Germans in DCX-Projects

Hallo oehlrich,

Hi "charly" I am now enregisterd in this helpfull, excellent forum, I enjoyed as a "Reader-only" since some months.

I am also in an active-Loudspeker-project with the Behringers DCX and DEQ 2496. Also with nearly the same Isophon speakers as you ( PSL 385/400 GJW and PSM 120/alu, but other Tweeters) , but Project is a CB-Solution (about 80 litres) .

You did post that everybody is invited to visit you in Erlangen and hear his solution. For the moment - far away from willling to cruise to Erlangen instantly, I would like to get some exchange of Ideas and perhaps some help with my project.

I am also German and I live not far away - though I am working in France (Champagne) - so how can I contact you?


An other opportunity ( if you are not interested in direct contact) is, to post some commentaries in the following german thread, crowded with germans, who are planning similar projects and have already enjoyed your first post here and your Homepage:

http://www.hifi-forum.de/index.php?a...ack=&sort=&z=1

perhaps you will enjoy to participate also in this forum (i would be happy)

Thanks a lot !

Dirk (enjoying the best of Germany and France)
