OVERVIEW

High-performance 48V phantom-powered active direct box designed for higher-output instruments.

The Radial Pro48's innovative digital switching power supply significantly increases headroom and allows for less distortion while yielding a smooth, linear response extending from 20Hz to well above 100kHz resulting in natural, uncolored signal transfer. This superior performance makes the Pro48 an ideal candidate for use with today's battery-powered active basses and acoustic guitars that tend to overload other direct boxes.

The compact Pro48 is built road-ready with 14-gauge steel in a unique bookend design that provides protective zones around the switches and connectors. The internal welded I-beam construction assures outside stress will not torque the PC board thus assuring longer product life.

Pro48 - typical applications

The Pro48 is designed for high-use applications wherever an active direct box is called for. A 15dB pad switch is provided to tame hot signal and expands the range of instrument preamps and the ground lift switch helps eliminate hum and buzz problems caused by ground loops.

FEATURES
  • High-resolution active direct box
  • Increased dynamic range and headroom
  • 48V phantom-powered with digital switching
  • Compact, rugged book-end design
  • Ideal for active guitars and basses
  • Applications:
  • Active acoustic guitar
  • Active bass guitar
  • Active electric guitar with preamp
  • Keyboard / Synthesizer
  • Direct recording

Exceptional sonic performance, great natural tone at an affordable price; the Radial Pro48 truly represents a breakthrough in value.

    Comments about Radial Engineering Pro48 Active 48-Volt Compact Active Direct Box:

    A solidly built box from the guys at Radial. Delivers accurate representation of my instruments in to my DAW. Phantom power keeps me from having to keep buying batteiries and the -15db pad is a must for plugging straight in to my interface. It's nothing fancy but does exactly what I needed it to do. If you're looking for a good active DI I highly suggest the PRO48.

      Got a great tone with this DI box. Using a P-bass Special with active pick-ups and recording on Logic Pro. Simple, easy.
