BBE 482i Sonic Maximizer

The all-analog 482i Sonic Maximizer restores natural brilliance and clarity to an audio signal by the use of two integrated functions. First, it adjusts the phase relationships between the low, mid and high frequencies through adding progressively longer delay times to lower frequencies, creating a kind of mirror curve to neutralize the effect of loudspeaker phase distortion. Second, the Sonic Maximizer augments higher and lower frequencies as loudspeakers tend to be less efficient in their extreme treble and bass ranges. The end result is a dynamic, program-driven restoration which reveals more of the natural texture and detail in the sound without causing fatigue that is often associated with exciter effects, psychoacoustic processors or excessive use of equalizers.

If you don't own one yet BUY IT NOW!!
Pros: Accurate Controls,Clean Sound,Easy Setup,Great Sound Quality,Durable,Good Power Output

I recently bought this item..Now I only usuing 200 watt Peavey Neo 12 speakers and a 200 watt Crown amp and to be honest with you I was satisfied with what I had. But after months of being told by other jocks what this thing does I finally gave in.. Let me tell you I hooked it up and cranked it up (normally I crank up the voluime pot on the mixer all the way up) but last night I only had to pot up the mixer about halfway and got BETTER quality of sound than I did before..BUY NOW you will NOT regret it!! Heck even when I used the wireless mic last night it sounded better!!

I can't wait to try them with my powered Behringer speaqkers next!!! OH and BTW YES the MP3's from the laptop...the quality and sound was and is undescribable!!

Great Tool for Great Sound
Pros: The enhancer,Easy To Set Up,Durable,Clean Sound

This tool really works. It makes the highs crispier and the lows deeper. I receive a lot of compliments every time I play at any gig. People wonder how such small system sounds so good. With just Two 15" speakers, it sounds like having 6 speakers. I owned for 5-6 years and its enhancement is amazing.

Pros: Easy To Set Up,Durable,Clear sound,Great Sound,Attractive Design,Compact
Cons: Not a one

I will not run a system without this product. Makes great sound even better.

IS A MUST, not an option!
Pros: Easy To Set Up,Accurate Controls,Great Sound Quality

I have had the 482I, actually own 2 of them, but I bought my first one roughly 6 years ago. IT IS A MUST with any system; big or small. It's a very small cost to make any system sound better with less distortion.

Most sound-reproducing systems include a circuit for boosting highs and lows, showing an accepted awareness of the loudspeaker's efficiency problem. The BBE system, however, provides dynamic, program-drives augmentation which combines with the phase compensation feature to restore the brilliance and clarity of the original live sound.
