This was purchased to be used as a reliable analog stereo crossover in live applications. I use this to seperate the subwoofer signals from the top signals before I connect to 2 amplifiers in stereo.

If you didn't know, BBE produces various pro-audio components, but in almost all of them they add an insert for their 'BBE sound maximising DSP.' If you buy anything, including this, you generally also get the option of their BBE processing which has the most dramatic effect on sounds/music 4khz and up. You may be familiar with the effect it has if your television has a BBE chip in it (including some Sony, JVC, Panasonic...)

Even if you don't need that effect, this is a pretty stout 2/3 crossover, imo. Thick faceplate, chunky knobs...Mine is red, but they're made with black plates now. Been using on the road for about 3 years now, no problems.

This was the simplest way and cheapest way to make subs out of my 15" Black Widows!!! The BBE max-x3 completes this amazing sound system, which i use for Medium sized gigs (300 to 500 people) I have been building this system for some time now with lots of review reading and careful equip selection along with a slow budget this x-over provides me with that chest pounding low and crisp clear sound you hear at concert arena and small venues with quality fidelity. The BBE Max Is also very versatile with out all the messy time consuming boring engineering learning curve mubo. You simply hook up as desired or as in my case try either stereo or mono connection options and start turning dials and mashing buttons for your desired sonic preference and with in 10min... You're done.... I use some old full range cabinets loaded them with the Peavy black widows, blocked of the tweeter horn section to add some thump and air displacement for subs, a pair JBL 115 full range as mids, QSC2400 (subs) QSC 1450 (Mids) Xenny 2442 mixer and finally the BBE and WOW!!! Hit A Home Run with X-over providing the much needed fidelity...the x-over more than maximizes the quality and efficiency of the system. Very pleased with the results!!!

Im using this with a MAckie 808S head with a mod to the board so I can route the preamp signals out thru effects b4 entering the power section. I ran this in MONO mode and broke out the sub signal to some amps and bass bins-then the regular signal back into the 808. It worked GREAT!

for the price its a steal, the Sonic Maximizer portion is good for the main mix but almost not noticable in the lows which is fine.

I reccomend this for outside the studio in live situations-not sure how the noise is in a studio situation as the maximizers tend to have a noisegate to release on a note then you hear the hiss-not noticeable in a live mix though.

I'm just getting into dj style amps and stuff and I'm still learning how it go.a crossover is needed to separate the highs from the lows.this piece did that and cleaned up my music I'm so impressed with the wide stage. This is worth every penny get it!

This product has increased the sound quality of my system. It is very easy to use and I love the fact that it has a knob to control the maximized.

As soon as I set it up there was an issue with the sound not operating with the crossover. I tried to call seller many times over 10 days and I even called BBE ( MFG.) and no one to answer because mailbox full and could not even leave a message. When I bypassed the Crossover it worked just fine. I know it was the Holidays but this happened a week before and all thru the holidays I had to deal with not one returned phone call. I was not happy and would I recommend this to someone??? Just for the fact that no one returned my call and the fact that I could not even leave a message at BBE is enough to give this product a big fat zero.
