Default Behringer CX2310?

Is this good enough for my Altec 604-8H's? Decent price for them here in Canada. I know they're not the 2496's but I'm not sure I'm that sophisticated.

Also if I am using RCA type equipment is it OK use over the counter adapter RCA to XLR adapter cables?

What are your thoughts/experiences?

Thanks for all input.

Seems like a real bargain if it meets your needs. My only comment would be on Behringer reliability. When we measured one of their loudspeakers recently the amp in one died. On the street the low reliability is well know. But performance per dollar when it works is second to none. German designed, Chinese made, if they ever get the reliability sorted out they would be hard to beat for value.

Balanced XLR to unbalanced RCA is no problem if you (or the manufacturer) does this right. All too often its done wrong and the technique gets a bad name.

many folks in small PA business (not audiophiles ) described super-x pro as bad\noisy\colored\unnatural and any replasement of super-x pro - as system upgrade ..
Some people say that ART 311 Stereo 2-Way Crossover with Sub Out | Parts-Express.com not the noisy ..

For $80 it's hard to beat. It's a generic LR24 variable F xover with no extra features like EQ. Should be fine and lots of others brands like Ashley or Rane will do the same job but will probably cost more even second hand. Behringer reliability was once poor, but I know plenty of home users with no problems, even a few with both CX xovers. I have 3 DCX [getting a 4th], 2 SRC & 1 FBQ and all are fine.

Considering possible cd and lf equalisation and unpredictable development of my project, I have chosen dcx flexibility.

I'd 2nd that. I haven't experienced any noise or reliability problems with my unit. Its a good, solid unit at a value for money price.

Default Behringer Super X Pro CX 3400

I am using two of the Behringer CX3400 crossovers. One per channel. Why? I just wanted to. There are three gainclones hooked up to each as my system is tri-amped. I am not noticing noise issues or any other problems. By the way, I am living in China. China's quality and workmanship will often get knocked, and with my experience from being here, I must say it's mostly from rumors and heresay. The CX 3400s offers a bit more flexibility. Why not consider those?

I have both CX3400 and DCX2496, both are excellent and pose no problems.

If finance is available get the DCX it sounds better and far more flexible, besides it includes a D/A convertor, saves you from using a DAC.

I used to have a CX2310 (until someone stole it!) and found it very flexible and easy to use. However it was noisy - mainly top end hiss rather than hum.

Mark.
