Art Pro Audio ART-DUALXDIRECT Dual Professional Active Direct Box

The ART-DUALXDirect offers two independent high-quality active interfaces, allowing you to connect instrument, line, or speaker level signals to a mixer or other balanced inputs. With buffered and converted high impedance 1/4″ and XLR inputs, this device delivers isolated, balanced, low impedance signal outputs, ensuring pristine audio quality.

Flat Frequency Response

Boasting an extremely flat and wide frequency response, the DUALXDirect can handle high signal levels with ease. This results in a clean and neutral sound reproduction across a diverse range of signal sources, making it suitable for use in various environments, including those with high noise levels.

Input Attenuation and Thru Jacks

The input ATTENUATOR switches provide flexibility for accommodating a wide range of signal levels, while the input THRU jacks allow for tapping off your signal chain. These features enhance usability and compatibility with different audio setups.

Ground Lift Switches

Equipped with GROUND LIFT switches, the DUALXDirect enables the separation of input and output signal grounds when necessary, effectively reducing hum and ground-loop noise. This ensures optimal signal integrity and minimises interference in audio transmissions.

Power Options

The DUALXDirect's active circuitry can be powered by phantom voltage from the OUTPUT connections or by an internal 9V battery when external power is unavailable. With low power consumption, the device offers extended operation time, providing more than 100 hours of use with a new alkaline battery.

Compact and Durable Design

Encased in a compact black-anodized all-aluminium case, the DUALXDirect is built to withstand the rigours of live sound, permanent installations, DJ setups, and PA applications. Its rugged construction, full feature set, and high-end specifications ensure reliable performance and longevity.

  • Fully Active Design: Incorporates a fully active design for enhanced performance and functionality in audio signal processing.
  • Phantom Voltage or 9V Battery Powered: Operates on either phantom voltage or a 9V battery, providing flexibility in power source options for different setups and environments.
  • Converts High-Impedance Balanced/Unbalanced Inputs Into 600 ohm Balanced Outputs: Converts high-impedance balanced or unbalanced inputs into 600 ohm balanced outputs, ensuring compatibility and optimal signal transmission.
  • Switchable Input Attenuation (0, -20, -40 dB): Offers switchable input attenuation options of 0, -20, or -40 dB, allowing for precise control over input signal levels to accommodate various input sources and signal strengths.
  • Switchable Low Pass Filter: Includes a switchable low pass filter to attenuate high-frequency content, enabling users to tailor the frequency response of the output signal as needed.
  • Switchable Phase Invert: Features a switchable phase invert function to reverse the phase of the output signal, helping to correct phase-related issues and ensure proper signal alignment.
  • Switchable Ground Lift (Fully Isolates Inputs from Chassis and Outputs): Provides a switchable ground lift option that fully isolates inputs from the chassis and outputs, effectively eliminating ground loop issues and reducing unwanted noise.
  • ¼-Inch TRS | XLR Combi Jack Inputs: Equipped with ¼-inch TRS and XLR combi jack inputs, offering versatile connectivity options for different types of input sources and equipment.
  • Rugged Extruded Aluminum Case: Housed in a rugged extruded aluminum case, ensuring durability and protection for the internal components while maintaining a sleek and professional appearance.
