    Does anyone have any experience with one of these? It appears to be making the rounds in the DJ circles but it appears to have some interesting applications for the bass guitar.

    More info can be found here.

    People have racks for their car stereos?

    It looks like it does the same thing as the dbx120xp. Also I think the Peavey Kosmos does this. I like my dbx but it's not perfect for me so I wouldn't mind trying the Grip. You need to run a crossed over sub cab to use subharmonic generators like this.

    I have a dbx120A that I use in my rig, sounds like the same type of deal...but how would it stand up to an A/B test? Also...does it use a regular AC cable or that dumb wall wart adapter?

    Well, it's about time Alesis got rid of the wall worts, they sucked! I'll have to try this puppy out sometime!

    Actually, a few do. I was bored at work one day, so I picked up this guy's car audio mag. There was a "pro" that had a couple of Rane eq's in a custom mounted rack. The "pro" said, "If sound engineers and musicians use 'em, I figured I would too."

    I thought that was a bit interesting.

    Never mind the above. I decided to go woth a BBE 882i. I know, not quite the same unit but I'm impressed with what one of these units can do for your sound overall.

    $187 brand new is not bad, after all.
