Comments about Behringer SX3040 Sonic Exciter Stereo Sound Enhancement Processor:

Update: I plugged this through my Marshall head and very limited sound. The Exciter could not handle 100watts of power on a low setting.
It worked fine for lining out from the had directly to a mixer and then into headphones.
As of 5/20/2018, it failed. Stopped producing sound and only gave a distorted hum. I should never had plugged 100watts of power into this device. It's too bad really, I liked what it did for me.

    Comments about Behringer SX3040 Sonic Exciter Stereo Sound Enhancement Processor:

    I needed something to fill out a gap in my sound. There was a mid range that was missing that I could not adjust through my Marshall head. So I get this device.
    I routed the outputs into both channels then onto the mixing board. Started adjusting the Bass and found that mid range with plenty of low end. Then I adjusted the Exciter and was able to clarify and brighten my sound.

    I've not yet used this through a cabinet or 'live', but I do believe that it will be splendid.

      Comments about Behringer SX3040 Sonic Exciter Stereo Sound Enhancement Processor:

      This is a great and attractive unit. I use it for vocals which add a bit of clarity and a nice unique sound that I was striving for. I use the dials sparingly as should be done with these types of effects. You get two channels which make this a better value that the competitors models. You cant go wrong with it. I am a huge fan of Behringer products in general.

          Comments about Behringer SX3040 Sonic Exciter Stereo Sound Enhancement Processor:

          I bought this to cleanup some 25 year old cassette tapes of original music to put on cd. I was amazed at what this exciter could do. The highs were back and the lows were kickin. I have never had an exciter before so I can't compare it to other models but this one does exactly what I want it to. Extremely satisfied!!

          Very decent exciter. Really brings up the bass - if that's what you want. I did. Easy to use too. Just got it, so don't know how well it will hold up, but so far so good! I would buy again!
