J48 Stereo

Stereo Active Direct Box

Phantom Powered Stereo Active Direct Box

The J48™ is a two channel active direct box that has been optimized to handle extreme transients without distortion, with a linear frequency response that extends from 20Hz up to 40kHz.

  • Exceptional headroom & dynamic range
  • Retains the natural sound of the instrument
  • Use with stereo sources or multiple instruments
  • Powered by 48V phantom, no batteries required

Higher voltage, higher headroom

Most battery-powered instruments and stereo keyboards will produce as much as 7 Volts when played at maximum volume, which can easily overload typical active direct boxes which have are only able to handle about 3 Volts. The J48 Stereo uses a unique switching power supply that raises the internal rail voltage so it can handle up to an incredible 9 Volts, resulting in improved signal handling and greater headroom. This additional headroom significantly reduces distortion of all types, allowing the natural tone and character of the instrument to shine through. The J48 maintains stereo separation between the left and right channels, allowing it to be used on two separate instruments or with stereo sources such as keyboards.

J48 Stereo Applications

Using the J48 Stereo with a keyboard

The J48's active circuit and amazing signal handling makes it a great choice for both digital and old school analog keyboards. A built-in pad reduces the sensitivity if needed.

Using the J48 Stereo with two basses

The compact design makes it easy to connect two guitars using one direct box. The great sounding active circuit sounds as good as other DIs costing five times as much!

J48 Stereo with two different instruments

Use the J48 Stereo with two completely different instruments. The low crosstalk makes it a great choice when doubling between bass, acoustic guitar, fiddle, or mandolin.
