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.

  • Wonderful Box

    As reviewed by Clarence Mays III on 4/26/2011

    This is a wonderful Direct Box to use during live events. This DI Box is highly recommended. Also, outputs clean audio! Buy it, it is worth the money.

  • Wonderful, flexible DI!

    As reviewed by Martin on 2/25/2015

    I'm a long-time fan of Radial's products. They are top-notch, well-engineered, and dependable. I read about the Pro48 when I was looking for an active DI, but the J48 was just a little out of reach for my budget. The Pro48 is the guts of the J48, minus the pretty silk-screening, the stereo-mono merge function, the polarity switch, and the low-pass filter. So, it's basically the same functionality as all the other active DI's out there, but with the engineering and reliability of Radial. I'm not sure what else to say? It's a wonderful DI, especially at this price point. You won't be disappointed!
