DI-PLUS 2 Stereo Channel Active Direct Box

Application Notes

Connecting it to the system

A stereo high impedance source (instrument, unbalanced lines or similar) plugs into Inputs A and B (typically Left to A and Right to B). If the signal needs monitoring, eg. an onstage amplifier, then connect a lead from the Loop Outs of each channel to the amplifier. Pushing the Pad switch IN will reduce both input levels by -20dB if required.

Note: If you are only using a single channel of the DI-PLUS2-RC, make sure that you use Channel A. The Channel A Input jack switches the DI-PLUS2-RC on.

Connecting to the console

Connect a balanced microphone lead from each 3 pin XLR connector on the rear of the DI-PLUS2-RC to a pair of input channels on the mixing console. Pan the channels Left or Right as required.

Pushing the Audio Ground Lift switch IN will isolate both Pin 1 outputs of the DI-PLUS2-RC to stop Ground Loops if required.

Battery Changing?

Unlike other Active DI Boxes, the DI-PLUS2 RC has a rechargeable Nickel Metal Hydride (NiMH) battery, which can be charged from an external supply, or charges automatically whenever it is connected to Phantom power. Is that a useful idea, or what?

As a manufacturer, ARX is well aware of the problems of disposing of batter-ies in an environmentally friendly way, so we've powered the DI-PLUS2 RC with an internal long life NiMH rechargeable battery that can be charged from either the phantom power on the mic line, or via the 12V DC input, removing battery "throw away" as an issue.

NiMH batteries exhibit no memory effect and a long life recharge cycle.
