Hi all,

I am in the need of a EQ and X-over for my IB. I want to x-over the IB lower then the 80hz my processor offers. I am currently using a NHT SA3 sub amp/x-over which I have set at 55-60hz.

I've been looking at the Audio Control Ritcher Scale III or the QSC DSP-30. Any thoughts on these? Other options?

Thanks, Kevin

The AudioControl unit EQ is too limited to be really useful. Haven't used one but I'm sure the QSC DSP-30 is fine for EQ.

Personally I wouldn't use any low dollar digital XO. IMO

they have a negative sonic impact on the high frequencies.

The best bang for the buck in EQ is of course the Behringer DSP1124P.

A nice low priced XO is the Paradigm X-30. I prefer 24db/octave slopes LR design, so that means the Marchand XM9

Thomas,

thanks for the reply.

The XM9 is offered in many ways. It's probably a safe bet you bought a kit version of some kind. Which version did you get? The options are a little confusing. Now that a member of the infinetly baffled I am easily confused.

I buy the XM9-KK that the lowest priced kit. It requires assembling all the components on the PCBs. Then assembling the unit itself.

If you've never build a kit I suggest getting one of the EZ kits. They have the PCBs assembled and tested. All the builder does is mount the parts and do the point to point wiring.

If you want to spend the bucks for the high-end RCAs they're nice, but I don't think they make a big difference in the sound. The upgraded op-amps are worth the few extra dollars though.
