Pro48™ Active Direct Box
Part No. R800 1105
The Radial Pro48 is a compact high-performance 48V phantom powered active direct box designed specifically for todays high output instruments.
The Pro48's innovative internal switching power supply significantly increases headroom producing less distortion while yielding a smooth, linear response that extends from 20Hz to well above 40kHz. This results in natural, uncolored signal that is as good or better than DI boxes costing several times more. The superior performance makes the Pro48 an ideal candidate for use with battery powered active basses and acoustic guitars that tend to overload other direct boxes.
The compact Pro48 is built road-ready with 14 gauge steel throughout. A unique book-end™ design creates a protective zones around the switches and connectors while the internal I-beam construction assures outside stress will not torque the PC board and deteriorate solder connections. A full bottom no-slip pads adds mechanical isolation and electrical insulation to further extend the Pro48's lifespan.
Exceptional sonic performance, great natural tone and an affordable price tag! The Radial Pro48 truly represents a breakthrough in value.
Since launching the Radial J48, it has steadily grown to become a favorite with the professional touring community. Increased headroom, less distortion and the resulting improved sound is a welcome addition to the ever greater demands for sonic purity.
As demands have increased from the professional touring community, awareness has also increased in other markets where customers have been asking for a more affordable version for studios, churches and other performance venues where affordability plays a more important role.
Following the footsteps of the popular Radial J48, the Pro48 presents a pared down solution that is at once affordable yet does not compromise the audio in any way. Cost reduction measures include a smaller footprint, less graphics and reduced feature set, eliminating extravagances such as the merge function (mix) and the high pass filter.
