Limiting also benefits intelligibility by allowing low-level input signals to be reproduced through the system at higher volume. If obvious physical damage is noticed contact the carrier immediately to make a damage claim. Insure the package properly. If you need to return a product to the factory for service, include a letter describing the problem. To compress a live mix or to protect loudspeakers, connect the XT be- v: Due to the gentle OverEasy characteristic of your XT you will find that even fairly high ratios are handled transparently.

By inserting an equalizer in the detector path to the XT, it can be made more sensitive to frequencies in the range handled by the sensitive drivers. We suggest saving the shipping carton and packing materials for safely transporting the unit in the future.

Note that the XT does not have a power switch. Please refer to the terms of your Limited Two-Year Standard Warranty, which extends to the first end-user. Your 1 60XT was carefully packed at the factory in a protective carton. In the studio, the 1 60XT can be used on everything from vocals to percussion. Please complete the Registration Card and return it.

This gain reduction would cause the perceived image of any sound spread between the two channels to move toward the side which had vbx been compressed, because the spread signal would be momen- tarily softer in the compressed channel. A setting of 2: This is a special negative compression effect whereby the program dynamics are inverted above the set threshold i.

The dbx Model X is well suited to a broad range of applications including tape recording, disc mastering, radio and TV production and broadcast, live concert sound reinforcement, mobile and theatrical production. The dvx in the de- tector circuit means that the compressor is not triggered as readily dbd a loud tom-tom beat as by an equally loud cymbal crash.

For more detailed information, refer to the specified pages. Preventing tape saturation With programs of widely varying levels, compression can prevent record- ing levels from saturating tape tracks see Frequency-weighted compres- sion, page The Registration Card enables us to inform you of new applications and performance improvements that are developed, and it helps us re- spond promptly to claims under warranty without having to request a copy of your bill of sale or other proof of purchase.

The Model X requires a maximum of manuwl 2 watts AC power. Do not short either pin 2 or pin 3 to ground. In hard-knee compression mode, the threshold is defined as that point above which the output level no longer changes on a 1: A balanced line is defined as two-conductor shielded cable with the two center conductors carrying the same signal but of opposite polarity with re- spect to ground.

After expiration of the warranty, a rea- sonable charge will be made for parts, labor, and packing if you choose to use the factory service facility. Unpack and Inspect the XT package. Use the original packing material if it is available. The wire that is colored blue must be connected to the terminal that is marked with the letter N or colored black; The wire that is colored brown must be connected to the terminal that is marked with the letter L or colored red.

Be sure to verify both the actual line voltage and the voltage for which your Model X was wired, as indicated on the rear dbc of your unit. Ensure that all terminals are securely tightened and that there are no loose strands of wire.

The control curve of the RATIO potentiometer has been designed to pro- vide total operator control, with scale expansion at the 160xg lower ratios for easy, repeatable settings.


For a stereo system, you can separately stereo couple the two high band crossovers, low band crossovers, etc. This is 10xt a chas- sis-isolate switch.

Contact our Customer Service Department for information regard- ing factory installation of the optional balanced transformer. We recommend you take a moment and read through the manual as it manul information that will assist you from system installation to opera- tion to special applications.

Make sure you have correctly followed installation steps and operation procedures.

Technical support, factory service The XT is an all-solid-state product with components chosen for high performance and excellent reliability. Frequency-Weighted Compression With this arrangement, raising certain frequencies on the equalizer causes them to be suppressed in the audio signal.

Customer Service The Schematic for the XT boards and power supply are provided on the inside back cover. Compression lessens the loudness variations among the strings and increases the sustain.

If multi-way loudspeakers with low-level electronic crossovers are used, the XT s should go after the crossover s. Plug into mains power. That is, when a phone plug is inserted, the detector input is no longer connected in parallel with the audio input.

By removing the strapping, the detector input can be separated from the signal input for special pro- cessing applications.

Mounting the unit directly over large heat-producing devices such as a vacuum-tube power amplifier may shorten component life and is not rec- ommended. Rear Panel [ 3E?

Instead a DC 160t controls all functions which eliminates any possibility of potentiometer noise as the con- trols age.
