382iSW is Great!!

Comments about BBE 382iSW Stereo Sonic Maximizer With Subwoofer Output:

The BBE 382iSW is the later remake of the BBE 362iSW..

I have the 362iSW and it has lived in my rack for the past 15 years. It still runs smoothly.. No hassles. I have never had one single problem with the unit.

It's interesting for me because I don't have to use a crossover. The Sub output allows me to route the lo freq to it's own amp OR you can patch it in on the mixer as long as there is a sub output.. or alt. output.

It's very easy to over-process.. without using the sub out, but sounds amazing! Very rich... Very clear.. Very transparent. It's worked wonders for me, a few bands and I do plan on buying the BBE382i -- the later model of the 362i.

If you feel you don't need a crossover, go with this unit. You will be glad you did! If you want to add a crossover later, it will only help the sound further. You don't need both to get a great sound.

    Comments about BBE 382iSW Stereo Sonic Maximizer With Subwoofer Output:

    Never knew what I was missing until I tried the Sonic Maximizer. Easy to connect, easy to use, but now it would be hard to do without it. I pressed the process switch on and dialed in the process control. Wow! A muddy sound that would require quite a bit of time to EQ took only a few seconds to come out crystal clear. I have never bought a piece of equipment so reasonably priced yet so essential. Should have gotten one of these a long time ago.

    Sub woofer output idea for hard of hearing

    Comments about BBE 382iSW Stereo Sonic Maximizer With Subwoofer Output:

    I utilize this fine specimen by porting the subwoofer output to a decent subwoofer. My musical friends, like I, are older and have some hearing issue. Ah, but when we can feel the music, our timing improves!

      Comments about BBE 382iSW Stereo Sonic Maximizer With Subwoofer Output:

      Have used BBE to record with forever, I have about 4 of them now but use them in gear live and in studio.
      My reason for buying this was the Subwoofer output, its really great for the Studio is has a volume and
      crossover control. I record it on a separate track. I've always used a BBE unit in my Master Tracks as a
      Stereo insert, can't imagine recording without it, I set the Lo and Hi settings about 3Oclock and its always
      treated me well. The 382i with Subwoofer output ROCKS MY WORLD BABY !! Love it.

      Comments about BBE 382iSW Stereo Sonic Maximizer With Subwoofer Output:

      Got this as a Stupid Deal Of The Day on a whim. Thinking it was just another automatic EQ, I hooked it up in the PA chain, turned it on, and went Wow. It gave the FOH speakers a whole new upgrade, enhancing the entire audio spectrum, and that was not even using the subwoofer output. I didn't realize how much fidelity was missing untilhit the bypass switch on the front for comparison.
      My one complaint was no XLR inputs or outputs. You have to use unbalanced 1/4" or RCA plugs

        I just decided to try one of these, instead of buying more expensive speakers for my P/A...This does the trick..It will add more bass, & brightness you did not have before...I don;t know why I did not buy one before...

          Love it. Make my rig sound so much fuller at lower volume levels. I'm running two PV 12's loud speakers on a PV 175 watt amp and two Yamaha 18's subs on a Mackie 1400I amp with a PV 10 AT mixer. Sounds great.
