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!

    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...

      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.

        Easy to use, I set this unit on top of my guitar amplifier. This makes it easy to adjust control knobs and connect short cables to amplifier. The 382iSW Stereo Sonic Maximizer makes any of my amplifiers really come alive.

        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

            Simply put, adding this device to my sound system improved the quality of my sound perfectly. Before my sound system sounded like listening to an AM radio station. With the 382isw my sound system sounds like listening to a FM radio station. I am extremely happy with the sub out and section filter. It makes my B-52 folded horn subwoofer sound like Thor the Thunder God!!!!

            382iSW is Great!!

            By Rob-C5v.C

            from Houston, Texas

            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.
