Hello all, just joined (great forums btw). I have read the discussions of this unit here. what i am interested in is if it could replace my old DBX 2 way analog xover and outboard eq with high performance results. my need is simple just a pair of 12" woofers crossing over below 120hz from a pair of mtms. I am using a bass boost of a few db at 20hz. the system is for music only, never HT. thanks!

Ok.. Time to close off this project..


Thanks Jan for helping me fix the GND'ing layout!! This alone fixed most of the problem..


Thanks to Burson support for their help too..
I shortened the power leads between external power supply and Discrete Modules (by half!), installed good quality 150uF & 0.1uF capacitors across power pins of the Modules.. Also re-adjusted DC offset as close to zero as I could get (10->20mV)..


All hum/buzz noise gone!! There is a tiny amount of buzz left if you get close to the speaker, but otherwise very quiet!! (LM4562's are dead quiet, even if you go close to speakers!) Loud "popping" from remote control gone too,, only slightly audiable at very loud volumes with no music playing..


The results.. Pretty good, they sound really nice.. Warm, slightly improved channel & instrument separation, and improved "holographic" vocals..


Thanks!!
CM

just bumping here, but i'll be more specific: considering the sound quality of the stock unit versus the modded one, would i see an improvement in sound quality over my present setup for the added complexity and cost$$ ?

Suggest you try with the stock unit, and start thinking about mods only if you are unhappy with the sound quality.

well what i am asking is if i would see an audible improvement over my present analog xover and eq to justify the added expense of the behringer (and those cable adapters are expensive..ouch!). with out it being modded of course.

I have some trouble with audio drop outs in 44khz(digital input). I have done the direct spdif-mod also. Will experimenting with the 110ohm-resistor solve the problem?

I have at this point 63 Ohm. The drop outs comes when switching the lights on and of etc.

In 96khz from my pre amp there is no drop outs though.
I got advice here to ground it, but it did not help. Any more tips?

Thank's!

voltage levels? while you don't need a 'full' 5v or more for aes3/xlr on this box, you do want to have much more than .5v if you can help it.

Anyone done an input using caps? Seen a few using transformers, but none using caps. I would like to get rid of the I/O board and use RCA connectors for inputs and outputs...hardwire the serial connector in.
