Apex ADP1 Passive Direct Box
The ADP1 offers great value in a passive direct box. This sturdy and dependable unit allows the connection of the outputs of electronic musical instruments (or other audio sources) to the balanced inputs of mixer consoles. Alternatively, the Apex ADP1 allows connection of a music source to an instrument amplifier while simultaneously patching it to a mixer via the ADP1 DI Box. Features

Switchable input attenuation 0dB for electric guitar/bass pickups 20dB for line level signals, such as CD-Players and keyboards 40dB for speaker feeds 50kOhm Instrument input. The APEX ADP matches the signal level and impedance with unity gain without adverse effects on the source signal The 50-kOhm Parallel Link jack output enables you to connect output from the D.I. Box directly to power amplifiers without a separate preamplifier The 600-Ohm XLR output jack enables you to send a balanced signal to the mixing console A Switchable Ground Lift is provided to help eliminate hum caused by ground loops


Electric Guitar/Bass Pick-Up Signals: The high impedance signal from a guitar or bass pick-up is translated by the ADP1 into a low impedance balanced signal required by mixing consoles .Suggested attenuation setting (1): 0dB Keyboards - Line Level Signals:The ADP1 automatically balances and matches the line level outputs of modern electronic key-boards. If you are using a multiple keyboard setup, and your keyboards are all plugged into a single instrument amplifier, the ADP1 can be used to replace individual direct boxes. Simply send the output of the instrument amplifier to the ADP1, then to the console (instead of using a separate direct box for each keyboard). Suggested attenuation setting (1): -20dB (line level) or -40dB (amp level) DJ Console Output Signals: DJ Mixers often supply only an unbalanced -10dB signal. The ADP1 converts this signal to a bal-anced line level before it reaches the console, while providing a convenient method of connector transition with long cable run capability.Suggested attenuation setting (1): 0dB or -20dB Speaker Level Signals: The ADP1's capability of accepting speaker level input from a power amplifier's output allows post-amplifier, post EQ/effects signals to be fed directly to the console. In this manner a particular effect or amplifier sound can be sent directly to the mix. Suggested attenuation setting (1): -40dB
