The 482i is perfect for semi-pro applications not requiring balanced jacks. With true dual-mono operation, the 482i is two independent BBE SONIC MAXIMIZER™ signal processors in one chassis.
The BBE 482i Sonic Maximizer signal processor is designed to offer far greater strength under demanding applications such as sound reinforcement and touring.
The unit features a ¼” thick extruded aluminum faceplate anchored to chassis via hex head bolts, and also benefits from improved graphics which are easier to read in poorly lit environments. In addition, new knurled, aluminum knobs have been incorporated for ease of control and a more positive feel, often critical to musicians, live sound mixers and DJs making fine adjustments mid-performance.
The Sonic Maximizer employs 1% metal film resistors and military spec PCBs with extra thick traces. Further optimizing signal flow, all pots, switches and jacks mount directly to the PC boards of these units, which also feature the extremely quiet, proprietary Sonic Maximizer op amp, designed by BBE.
