Note that the XT does not have a power switch. Be sure to verify both the actual line voltage and the voltage for which your Model X was wired, as indicated on the rear panel of your unit. Remember that, as with any amplifier, excessive gain may lead to output clipping of high level signals.

The control curve of the RATIO potentiometer has been designed to pro- vide total operator control, with scale expansion at the subtle lower ratios for easy, repeatable settings. Due to the gentle OverEasy characteristic of your XT you will find that even fairly high ratios are handled transparently.

In Over Easy mode, the threshold of compression is defined as the approximate middle of the Over Easy threshold region, as shown in Figure If obvious physical damage is noticed contact the carrier immediately to make a damage claim. For a stereo sound-reinforcement system, stereo strapping cables should be run between the XTs in each band low-low, mid- mid, etc. An unbalanced line is generally a single-conductor shielded cable with the center conductor carrying the signal and the shield at ground potential.

Frequency-Weighted Compression With this arrangement, raising certain frequencies on the equalizer causes them to be suppressed in the audio signal.


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.

Please refer to the mannual of your Limited Two-Year Standard Warranty, which extends to the first end-user. 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.

Those fre- quencies passed by the filter are subject to compression or at least they are subject to considerably more compression than those frequencies out- side the 160t. The XT will then begin to release recover from compression before the loud passage has ended.

In certain situations, the auxiliary device may need to be inserted in the signal path, not in the detector path. Mnaual an equalizer inserted ahead of the detector input but not in the audio paththe equalization settings do not shift the timbre or frequency response of the audio signal.

Assuming the tom-tom is a lower frequency instrument and can be better tolerated by the tape, it has less need for compression. We suggest saving the shipping carton and packing materials for safely transporting the unit in the future. In hard-knee manuaal mode, the thres- hold is defined as that point above which the out- put level no longer changes on a 1: Ship prepaid, not collect. Other instruments, such as horns, vary in loudness depending on the note being played, and benefit similarly.

Of course, when compression does occur, the level of the entire program is affected. Ensure that all terminals dbs securely tightened and that there are no loose strands of wire. If the XT is wired into a patchbay, never insert a mono phone plug into the patchbay.

Be sure to verify both your actual line voltage and the volt- age for which your Model XT was wired, as indicated on the rear panel of your unit. We have added a few new features to the dbx Model XT while main- taining the performance and ease of operation of its predecessor, the dbx Dx. This gain reduction would cause the perceived image of any sound spread between the two channels to move toward the side which had not been compressed, because the spread signal would be momen- tarily softer in the compressed channel.


Do not ground Manyal 2 or 3 of the XLR-type output connector distortion can result. In all cases, you are responsible for trans- portation charges to the factory, 160xf will pay return shipping if the unit is still under warranty.

This is a special negative compression effect whereby the program dynamics are inverted above the set threshold i. Program-dependent attack and release times assure natural sound without the need for con- tinuous manual adjustments.

Pre-emphasis for broadcast applications By inserting a pre-emphasis filter network in the detector path of mxnual XT processing pre-emphasized audio, higher levels can be run within the headroom limitations of the broadcast chain.

The equal- izer can be adjusted for boost with a peak of about 5kHz, causing the cym- bal to be compressed on a very loud crash, stopping tape saturation at high frequencies, where there is less headroom. Increasing sustain To increase the sustain of a musical instrument e. In other words, the output level is constant when the input signal is above manuzl old.
