Smile Line Out for highgain BoSoZ

Gentlemen....

For the last couple of month's, i have been fiddling around, with a setup of my Fostexfe207e-halfchang fullranger spk. + an 12" plateamp powered servosub.
This is a setup, i really appreciate, as it give's me, what i found was missing on the fullranger... But i think it could be even better as it is now !

The servosub, is feeded on it's highlevel input, e.g at my F4's spk. terminals. Reason for that, is that my volcontrol on my BoSoZ is placed at the output. The servosub cannot accept signal at that range on it's normal linein.

What i would like to have, is a line-out on my BoSoZ, giving max 3vac out. My BoSoZ has only balanced output's, through XLR's. I am thinking about drilling holes for two rca's for lineout. - Reason i would like this, is that i would like to attach a passive filter at my F4's input, filtering out the bass to my fullranger's.

I have been reading about inline attenuator's and how they work, how they affect the impedance and so, but was wondering if there is a betterway of doing it. Also i donno if a L/H or whatever pad attached in parrellel on my BoSoZ output, would affect the impedance much or if it would affect the output i am using for driving my F4's ?

Any hint ?

Jesper.

What Jesper is trying to say, is that he needs a line out before the pot, and he wants you to say it

Your'e crazy both of you ...
I need a lineout, but not with the voltageswing, giving at the output at my BoSoZ, where my volcontrol is !

Perhaps you could add in the unbalanced output after the volume control, but put in an attenuator circuit to feed from the output of the volume control to the output for the sub!? Just my silly thoughts.

Peace,

Dave

Yes, i was also thinking about using +out / gnd, for lowering the voltageswing, but it's still not enough... With a 1vac input, the unbalanced out gives ~8-10vac.

I have found this somewhere else, in this forum, and maybe it could be usefull. I still donno if it will affect the normal output much. - This connection, has to be done in parrelel to my normal output XLR.

Jesper.

Build another BOSOZ, and try if you can, to just leave the gain setting at 12

Well, as the master of gain, you sure know how to lower it to the level needed, no?

nope ;
lykkkkk is good just for gains above 100 ;
