Great product for the price

By Ron C Santora

from Buffalo, NY

I purchased two units to use in my home theater. I am using them in conjunction with the dbx 3 channel crossovers. My front speakers are tri-amped and I needed the crossovers and equalizers to set correct levels and equalizaion in my theater room. They worked perfectly. My only complaint is they don't work well with unbalanced gear needing direct boxes to match impedence and levels, but when that was done they performed very well. I replaced Rane crossovers that were quite old and getting noisy, when used in a balanced configuration they are quiet and quite reveling. I highly recommend them.
