Congratulations and thank you for your purchase of the BBE Max-X3. You have acquired an extremely efficient and universal stereo crossover with an integral BBE Sonic Maximizer.
READ BEFORE USING Before starting to use the crossover in your sound system there is some information you should know and procedures you should follow. The Max-X3 is a fourth order Linkwitz-Riley electronic crossover. These units can be used both in stereo and mono modes allowing the following configurations: Stereo mode 2-way Mono mode 3-way
Stereo and mono modes can be easily set by pushing the rear panel switch and connecting inputs and outputs properly.
FEATURE LIST Single rack unit (1U) Robust and compact design Phase inversion switches Servo-balanced XLR inputs/outputs. 1/4TRS input/outputs for any combination of balanced and unbalanced operation State-variable Linkwitz/Riley 24dB/Octave filters Switchable Constant Directivity horn equalization circuit for use with horns requiring a high frequency boost Clip LED indicators Mute switches Designed for the most precise control Top audio performance with high slew rate circuity Over 115dB dynamic range Manufactured Under ISO9001 Certified management system Inputs & Outputs All inputs and outputs are floating and balanced when connected via a tip, ring, sleeve 1/4 connector to other floating and balanced equipment. Any combination of balanced and unbalanced operation is permitted (see also Connection Cables). SONIC MAXIMIZER 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 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. Clip LED This LED will light when output capability is being exceeded with clipping distortion. Occasional flickering of the Clip LED is acceptable, but if it remains on continuously you should turn down the level control or reduce the output level of the preceding component to avoid audible distortion. Range x1 & x10 This switch sets the range of crossover frequencies. OFF : Frequency x1 = 80Hz -1KHz ON : Frequency x10 = 800Hz -10KHz
CAUTION: to prevent transients and possible equipment damage, never change the frequency range switch from the x1 position to the x 10 (or vice versa) while passing signal.
Phase Inversion These phase inversion switches reverse the audio signals phase by 180. Normally, you wont need this switch, however, in some cases, it might be necessary. For example, the inversion of the pins of the XLR connector may be necessary to alter the audio phase to compensate for phase cancellation. Mode switch This switch sets the operational mode of this unit. When it is pressed, this unit is in the state of mono application, you can operate it as a 3-way mono crossover (High/Mid/Low). Otherwise, this unit is in the state of stereo application, you can operate it as a 2-way stereo crossover (High/Low).

In this chapter youll find the wiring diagrams for the connectors to be used with your crossover. Take care of the connector cable. Always holding them by the connectors and avoiding knots and twists when coiling them: this gives the advantage of increasing their life and reliability, which is always to your advantage. Periodically check that your cables are in good condition, that they are correctly wired and that all their contact are perfectly efficient: a great number of problems (faulty contacts, ground hum , discharges, etc.) are caused entirely by using unsuitable or faulty cables

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!

BBE OFF Same sound as reproduced by an audio system. Note initial transient lost (envelope distortion).
BBE ON Same sound reproduced with BBE processing: corrects distortion; corrects phase delay.
