dbx dB12 Active Direct Box

The dbx dB12 Active Direct Box offers all the benefits of a premium-quality Direct Box while preserving the sonic integrity and true characteristics of the signal source with its custom dbx mu-metal-shielded audio transformer, high-quality Neutrik connectors, and low-noise circuitry.

The dbx dB12 Active Direct Box includes a pad switch for instrument, line and even speaker level signals. And you can take even more control of your sound by utilizing the polarity invert switch to set the phase relationship between the direct and mic’d sound.

At dbx, when they do something, they do it right. So when they decided to create their new direct injection boxes, they didn’t settle for the same old tired approach to direct box design. With their dbx name on the line, how could they? One look at their new dbx dB10 Passive and dB12 Active direct boxes will tell you that these are clearly different. With their bullet-proof construction, and extraordinary audio performance to rival their looks, finally there’s a direct box worthy of the dbx name.

Utilizing custom dbx mu-metal-shielded audio transformers, high-quality Neutrik connectors, and low-noise circuitry preserves the sonic integrity and true characteristics of the signal source. The dbx dB12 Active Direct Box includes a pad switch that accomodates instrument, line and even speaker level signals. Take even more control of your sound by utilizing the polarity invert switch to set the phase relationship between the direct and mic'd sound.

As a professional, you don’t have time for interference, so they’ve included a ground lift switch to solve potential hum and buzz problems due to ground loops. And between the combined shielding of the cast metal chassis and the custom-wound transformer, you can be doubly assured of a clean signal free from interference. All of this sits atop a solid, stable footprint, that will keep the dbx dB12 Active Direct Box from being dragged around the stage, and the unique contoured underside allows secure stacking of multiple units.
