Art Pro Audio ART-DADB Dual Active Direct Box

The ART dADB dual active direct box acts as two independent, high-quality active interfaces for connecting instrument, line, or speaker-level signals to balanced inputs. The high impedance ¼-inch inputs are buffered and converted by extremely low noise active electronics to deliver isolated, balanced, low impedance outputs.

Acoustic Transparency

The dADB delivers an extremely flat and wide frequency response even at high input levels, making it a virtually acoustically transparent DI solution.

Versatile Input Options

Input attenuation on each channel allows for a wide range of source signal levels. Independent parallel thru jacks allow for tapping the signal chains. A Ground Lift on each channel allows for totally separate the input and output signal grounds to isolate two systems when required, thus reducing hum and ground-loop noise.

Effective Filtering

Switchable low pass Bessel filters eliminate high-frequency interference. Operating outside of the audio range, these complex and effective filter circuits are primarily intended to eliminate radio frequency interference before it gets into the main system. They effectively reduce digital computer noise, making the dADB the ideal DI solution for laptops, computer workstations, and peripherals when used in stereo PA applications.

Power Options

The dADB’s active circuitry is powered by phantom power or by an internal 9V battery when external power is not available. Low current draw (less than 7.5 mA) should provide more than 100 hours of operation with a new battery (alkaline recommended).

Rugged Design

The compact black all-steel case and active design ensure unmatched long-term reliability in Live Sound, Permanent/Fixed Install, D.J., or virtually any PA application.

  • Fully Active Design: Operates on phantom power or a 9V battery, providing versatile power options for various setups and environments.
  • High-Impedance Inputs: Converts high-impedance balanced or unbalanced inputs into 600 ohm balanced outputs, ensuring compatibility with a wide range of audio equipment.
  • Switchable Input Attenuation: Offers selectable input attenuation levels (0 dB, -20 dB, -40 dB) for precise control over signal levels, allowing flexibility in signal management.
  • Independently Switchable Features: Includes independently switchable low-pass filters, phase invert, and ground lift functions on each channel, providing fine-tuning options for audio signal processing and troubleshooting.
  • TRS and XLR Connectors: Equipped with 1/4-inch TRS connectors for inputs and through connections, as well as XLR connectors for balanced outputs, facilitating easy connectivity with various audio devices.
  • Rugged Steel Case: Housed in a durable steel case, ensuring reliability and protection in demanding live performance or studio environments.
