    I am not sure if this belongs here, but I didn't see another spot that looked right. Does anyone have any experience with the BBE 383 Sonic Maximizer/Preamp/Crossover. I am seriously debating getting one in an effort to scale down my rig. Just thought I would get some imput from guys on the front line who may have used one. Thanks.


    Oh, if you know where I could find one relatively inexpensive, please let me know. They seem to be a rarity.

    I have a BBE pre-amp like that - I'm not sure of the model number. It's FABULOUS! It also has "punch" and a compressor, neither of which I use. It has good eq (5 band). The crossover has an adjustable cutoff point and a balance (Hi to Low ratio). It's great! I use it with a GK power amp. I have heard they are no longer available. It's clean & quiet & the BBE Effect is a marvelous thing.
