Product Description

The DBX 223XS Stereo 2-Way/Mono 3-Way Crossover uses precision filters to separate the audio signal and direct the correct frequencies to your loudspeaker drivers. By directing only the specific frequency bands to each speaker driver the 223XS Crossover leaves your amplifiers free to use their full power on the usable signal eliminating distortion and giving your PA system a cleaner and better sound.

DBX 223XS Stereo 2-Way/Mono 3-Way Crossover Features:
  • XLR balanced ins and outs
  • Mode switch for stereo 2-way or mono 3-way operation
  • Low frequency summed (subwoofer) output
  • x10 range switch on both channels
  • 40Hz high pass (low cut) filter both channels
  • Phase reverse switch on all outputs
  • Individual level controls on all outputs
  • 24dB per octave Linkwitz-Riley filters (the professional standard)
  • Stereo/Mono status LEDs indicate the selected mode 
  • DBX 2 year parts and labor as standard
  • CSA NRTL/C approved
  • CE compliant
The DBX 223XS Crossover is a dual channel crossover with all the features you would expect from a professional product. It features Linkwitz-Riley 24dB per octave filters, independent output gain controls for level matching, output phase inversion, 40 Hz low cut filter, and optional mono summing of the low frequency (subwoofer) output. Everything in the design exudes great precision from the solid click controls to the high quality XLR inputs and outputs.

"Best buy for my System"
Product Rating

Your general opinion of this product.

This xover boosted my bass and makes those Vega's thump the way a sub should! Excellent and worth every dime!

Well made and very dependable

Easy to use and ready right out the box.

sweetest sound my system has had in years!

Review: Bill V. from Dover, NH USA, Submitted: 4/29/2013

Best crossover I've ever heard

Very well made. Control knobs are nice and 'thick' .. input jacks are tight.

It already has everything you need.

No manual necessary if you have just a basic knowledge of crossover hookup. If not, five minutes of reading and you're there.

This model has the best tonal characteristics I've ever heard. Perfect balance of high and mid frequencies; low frequencies are to die for. If you run a sub, set your frequency at around 100hz and your kick drum will sound like a Mutt Lang CD.

Your general opinion of this product.

Perfect. I'm a professional musician of 50 years. I've tried Furman, BBE, Rolls, Samson, Nady, DOD, and Behringer .. this DBX blows them all away.
