Thank you for your purchase, and for the trust that youve placed in BBE. We are committed to bringing you the finest products, with useful and unique features to serve your audio needs. The BBE Sonic Maximizer is a 2-channel signal processor that will benefit any recording or sound reproduction system. Whether you purchased the 882i for your home studio, P.A., DJ system, or instrument rack, you will find the Sonic Maximizers rugged construction and careful electronic design a welcome addition to your sonic arsenal.
The BBE Process What it Is
Loudspeakers have difficulty working with the electronic signals supplied by an amplifier. These difficulties cause such major phase and amplitude distortion that the sound reproduced by a speaker differs significantly from the sound produced by the original source. In the past, these problems proved unsolvable and were thus delegated to a position of secondary importance in audio system design. However, phase and amplitude integrity is essential to accurate sound reproduction. Research shows that the information which the listener translates into the recognizable characteristics of a live performance are intimately tied into complex time and amplitude relationships between the fundamental and harmonic components of a given musical note or sound. These relationships define a sounds sound. When these complex relationships pass through a speaker, the proper order is lost. The higher frequencies are delayed. A lower frequency may reach the listeners ear first or perhaps simultaneously with that of a higher frequency. In some cases, the fundamental components may be so time-shifted that they reach the listeners ear ahead of some or all of the harmonic components. This change in the phase and amplitude relationship on the harmonic and fundamental frequencies is technically called envelope distortion. The listener perceives this loss of sound integrity in the reproduced sound as muddy and smeared. In the extreme, it can become difficult to tell the difference between musical instruments, for example, an oboe and a clarinet. BBE Sound, Inc. conducted extensive studies of numerous speaker systems over a ten year period. With this knowledge, it became possible to identify the characteristics of an ideal speaker and to distill the corrections necessary to return the fundamental and harmonic frequency structures to their correct order. While there are differences among various speaker designs in the magnitude of their correction, the overall pattern of correction needed is remarkably consistent.
The BBE 882i is a dual channel, single rack space device for use in +4dBu balanced line applications. Each of the two independent channels has a Lo Contour control, Process control and a 5 segment LED output level meter. A single function button switches the BBE process on or off in both channels, which is useful for comparing the processed sound to the unprocessed sound. An LED next to the function button glows green when the BBE process is on and yellow when the process is off. The Lo Contour controls are for adjusting the level of phase corrected low frequencies in the program material. The Process controls are for adjusting the level of phase corrected high frequencies in the program material.
APPLICATIONS Music and P.A. Systems
The BBE Sonic Maximizer is a welcome addition to any live sound P.A. system because the BBE circuit dramatically improves the clarity and intelligibility of vocals and musical instruments. Night club and mobile DJ systems will also benefit greatly from the BBE Process, with more depth, detail and punch over the entire mix. The BBE Sonic Maximizer can be hooked up to any P.A. or DJ sound system exactly like an equalizer would. When using in conjunction with an equalizer, the Sonic Maximizer should be added after the equalizer in the signal chain. In the event that the equalizer is being used for drastic tone alteration, then insert the Sonic Maximizer before the equalizer in the signal chain. Placement either before or after an equalizer should have no negative effect on the unit or its processing ability, however most users find they prefer more modest use of their equalizers once the BBE Sonic Maximizer has been added to their sound systems.
The BBE Sonic Maximizer will deliver surprisingly good results in guitar, bass and keyboard rack systems. Electric guitars have added bite, chunk and improved definition. As Guitar Player magazine said, BBE is the most cost effective improvement you can add to your rig. Acoustic guitars processed with the BBE Sonic Maximizer have a breathtakingly natural sparkle and presence. Bassists will delight in the BBE Sonic Maximizers ability to bring much more punch to the bottom end without muddying up the midrange. The BBE Sonic Maximizer is also great for keyboard rigs, with everything from the latest samples to a vintage Rhodes benefiting equally from the patented BBE process.
The BBE Sonic Maximizer can be used as an effect on individual tracks or applied overall during mixdown. The BBE process works very well to liven up the final mix, which is why the BBE 882i model is popular for use in both project and professional recording studios.
The BBE Sonic Maximizer is connected into the chain in series with the signal path the same way a graphic equalizer or limiter would be connected. The output of a mixer, pre-amp, or other sound source feeds the input of the Sonic Maximizer. Setting up the Sonic Maximizer as an echo send device like a digital reverb is not recommended as the processed effect is not fully realized when summed with the original source audio. In order to reduce the risk of damage to any equipment, properly connect all cables and power cables before turning on any components in the system.
Front Panel Controls
1. LED DISPLAY: The LED display is used to indicate the output signal level of the BBE 882i. Each number on the front panel corresponds to the output signal level, measured in decibels. Example: The +10 indicates a 10dBu signal level, 0 refers to 0dBu, and so on. Once an input signal level has been established, increasing the BBE PROCESS and LO CONTOUR will increase the output signal and cause more LEDs to illuminate. The Clip LED monitors the input signal level. The Clip LED will illuminate at +20dBu, giving a 3dBu warning of the impending distortion at +23dBu, the actual clip point. 2. LO CONTOUR: Each channel is equipped with a LO CONTOUR CONTROL. This control regulates the amount of phase corrected bass frequencies. 3. PROCESS: Each channel is equipped with a PROCESS CONTROL. This control regulates the amount of phase corrected treble frequencies. 4. BBE FUNCTION: This push button switch allows for quick comparison of processed with unprocessed sound. When the switch is pushed in, the process is on and the indicator LED is green. When the switch is out, the process is off and the indicator LED is yellow. 5. CHANNEL B: These controls function the same as CHANNEL A. 6. POWER: This switch controls primary power to the BBE 882i.
Things to Remember
The BBE 882i is designed to work with +4dBu signal levels. This is suitable for use with professional P.A. systems, recording studios or nightclub sound systems. The BBE 882i drives load impedances down to 600 Ohms and supplies a maximum output level of +23dBu. Plugging a guitar, microphone or other high impedance device directly into the BBE 882i will not work properly as its input impedance is less than 14.7K Ohms.
The bbe sonic maximizer is a line level signal processor and is to be connected prior to the power amp in any audio system. Significant damage may be inflicted to the BBE Sonic Maximizer or any subsequent component in the system in the event the output of a power amp is connected directly to the input of the bbe sonic maximizer.
Rear Panel Connections
1. AC POWER CORD INLET: Plugs into AC power receptacle. U.S., Canada and Japan Models, 100-120Vac, 50/60Hz. All other models, 220~240Vac, 50/60Hz. 2. FUSE: Insert a flat blade screwdriver into the fuse holder located in the bottom portion of the AC Power Cord inlet. Carefully pry the fuse holder free from its compartment to access fuse. (Note: For all models, replace with 250VAC,.2A slowblow type fuse.) 3. OUTPUT: The output of the BBE 882i can be taken from the 1/4 stereo TRS Phone Jack or the XLR Jack. Both are balanced and the same point electronically. This allows both outputs to be used simultaneously, eliminating the need for a Y cord in the event multiple, balanced outputs are required. The recommended single load impedance is at least 10k Ohms. If both outputs are being used, a minimum of a 22k Ohm load per device is required. (The load is determined by the input impedance of the next subsequent component in the signal chain.) The maximum output is rated at +23dBu. Pin #2 is considered the hot or + signal. The output impedance of the BBE 882i is 600 ohms. NOTE: Actual output level will vary due to the selected position of the BBE Process, and the actual input signal level. If both the XLR and Phone Jacks are being used, both must be either balanced or unbalanced. Otherwise a loss of signal level will occur. 4. INPUT: The input of the BBE 882i is a balanced connection. Although it can be either a TRS 1/4 stereo Phone Plug or an XLR Plug, it is recommended that only one input source be used. Both jacks are the same point electronically, however, due to the input/output impedance characteristics of most audio devices, a loss of signal may occur and/or damage to a component if both inputs are utilized. Pin #2 is considered the hot or + signal. The input impedance of the BBE 882i is 14.7k Ohms. The maximum signal level is +23dBu. 5. CHANNEL A: These connections function the same as CHANNEL B.
WARNING! To prevent possible speaker or amplifier damage, always power-up peripheral devices first, wait 10 seconds, and then turn on the power amplifier. Turn off power amplifier first, then power-down peripheral devices.

All the sound youve never heard
BBE Sonic Maximizer
What it is and what it does.
When we listen to live music, all of the highs and lows reach our ears in the same relationship to each other as when they were created by the instruments. If this same live music were to be recorded and played back through a loudspeaker system, the loudspeaker would introduce frequency-dependent phase shifting. The inductance of the speakers voice coil creates a stronger impedance as the signals frequency increases, resulting in a time delay. Consequently, frequency components with large negative phase shifts (high frequencies) arrive at the listeners ear later than signals undergoing small phase shifts (low frequencies). The resultant signal is distorted in the time domain to the listeners ear. Audio material containing sharp transients (e.g., percussive and plucked sounds such as drums, guitar, piano and harpsichord, etc.) suffers the most from this phenomenon, making it seem unfocused, or mushy. In order to address these problems inherent in basic loudspeaker design, BBE Sound, Inc. has developed a circuit that has two primary functions. The first adjusts the phase relationships
of the low, mid and high frequencies. Since a loudspeakers natural tendency is to add progressively longer delay times to higher frequencies, BBE sound technology adds progressively longer delay times to lower frequencies. This creates a kind of mirror curve to the time delay curve created by the speaker, neutralizing its phase distortion. The second major element in BBEs sound technology is the augmentation of the higher and lower frequencies. Loudspeakers tend to be less efficient in their extreme treble and bass ranges. Most sound-reproducing systems include a circuit for boosting high and low frequencies, showing an accepted awareness of the loudspeakers efficiency problem. The BBE system, however, provides a dynamic, program-driven augmentation which combines with the phase compensation feature to restore the brilliance and clarity of the original live sound. The result is, as one professional journal phrased it, The most hearable advance in audio technology since high fidelity itself!
