  • Holy Crap!!! Expensive Speakers Beware...

    As reviewed by Charile Gray on 9/19/2012

    I have been a DJ for 18 years and have always used power amps with passive speakers, most recently 2 QSC 2450s with 4 JBLs dual-15"s and a CV Earthquake 18" Sub. The speakers were always top of the line, so I never really noticed a difference with BBEs that I have installed in the past. I booked a gig for a 50th anniversary to be held in a restaurant banquet room (about 20'x30') and needed a MUCH smaller system, so I invested in a pair of Harbinger APS12s and a Behringer 1202FX. They were small enough for the room, but didn't produce very good sound on their own. The 3-Band EQ on the 1202FX was adequate, at best, and the 5-band on the APS12s made it sound muddy on the lows or tinny on the highs. I added the BBE 382i to the system and, holy crap... It was like some had replaced these little speakers with some EONs or Thumps. The sound was cleaner, louder and what I would expect from a $$ speaker. I couldn't believe it until I pressed the "Process" button and turned it off again. The difference was night and about 3 days. The BBE382i only has 4 workable buttons/controls on the front panel for incredibly user-friendly operation. "Power on/off" switch (obviously to turn the thing, well, on and off), "Lo Countour" dial (to adjust the bass and low-end processing), "Process" dial (to adjust the mids and high-end processing), and the "Process" button, to instantly check "before and after" and compare sound quality with or without the BBE. There are indpendent clip lights for both Channel A and B to monitor the incoming signal. The back panel is just as simple: 2 - 1/4" inputs and 2 - 1/4" outputs. That's it! It has solid construction, but is lightweight. It features a standard 19" rack-mountable design with a brushed aluminum and red graphic face plate. Simple and clean! I have a BBE482 in my main rack, but after hearing this thing in my new portable system, you can bet I will have BBE in every rack I own.
