OVERVIEW

For instruments with onboard preamps, keyboards or, CD players.

The PDI Double Shielded DI Box provides increased protection against noise and interference. Features 1/4" high impedance from instrument wired in the panel. Makes no difference which is used for input or output. 1/4" high impedance goes to your amp when input/output is used as a loop.

Balanced and floating low-impedance XLR goes to your workstation or mixing console, and ignores +48V phantom power. The Lift mode severs ground connection between the input and the XLR output and ground remains connected in GND mode.

FEATURES
  • 1/4" high impedance input and output
  • Balanced XLR output
  • Ground lift switch
  • Double shielded to reduce interference
  • Heavy duty, all-steel chassis

Order with the protection of our 45-day lowest price and total satisfaction guarantees!

        This is a very high quality DI at an affordable price. I also have Radial DI's and this particular DI is just as good. I highly recommend.

          Comments about Live Wire PDI Double Shielded Heavy Duty Passive Direct Box:

          We bought three direct boxes made by another manufacturer that were very inexpensive. Well, you get what you pay for. Two failed within the first few months, and the third one is too. This direct box has the essential and professional features needed for live performances, and to survive the frequently setting up and taking down week in and week out. We setup/tear-down twice a week: weekly rehearsals and Sunday services.

          This box has a metal XLR connector, unlike the cheaper boxes which have plastic XLR connectors that loosen over time and wore out after several months of use.

          The two 1/4" connectors on this box are solid and the ground lift switch is a rugged power switch.

          Essential features and long-lasting components. Solid box, solid buy.

          Sturdy product

          By Bassman-hQeuj

          from Arkansas

          Comments about Live Wire PDI Double Shielded Heavy Duty Passive Direct Box:

          I've used other DIs but this one has to be my favorite.
          This is definitelty a heavy duty grade product. When I recieved the package the first thing I noticed was the weight, then when I actually used it at a gig there was no noise and the audio was clean.
          Well built sturdy quality built product!
          Worth every penny!

          cancels hum

          By THARN

          from NE-Ohio

          Comments about Live Wire PDI Double Shielded Heavy Duty Passive Direct Box:

          Most people will get this for studio help in cancelling noise or live performance with thier amps...
          You can also use this if you run a wire from your mixer to a powered speaker- this is why I use it-
          it cust the 60 cycle hum that my powered PA speakers were picking up by 90%- some set ups have a ground lift- if they dont this item will act as that lift.
          We all know that there are still venues out there that can cause a lot of problems with your live sound.
          For the money this non powered direct box has both xlr out and 1/4 inch out-
          + a ground lift. nice options.
          solidly built - case is not plastic.
          excellent value for dollar.

          Comments about Live Wire PDI Double Shielded Heavy Duty Passive Direct Box:

          I know, a direct box is a direct box right? Not so fast. This guy is road tough and is fantastic at doing what it needs to do while doing two things that are VERY important. Super quiet and no coloring of tone!The PDI double shielded box that I use run the board for conditions. From church worship to Football games without any issues. I would seriously compare this to the more expensive units all day long.
