ADA1  Phantom Powered Active Direct Box
Overview

Direct boxes are the sound-tech's "Swiss army knife". Here are some examples of situations where a Direct Box becomes an invaluable tool.

Problem - you need to connect an amplifier's speaker output to the mic input on a mixer.

Solution - connect an ADA1 between the speaker output and a mic input with phantom power on the mixer, then set the attenuation switch to "-40".

Problem - your PA is humming because there is a ground loop between a signal source and the mixer.

Solution - connect an ADA1 between the signal source and a mic input with phantom power and set the ground switch to "Lift".

Problem - you need to connect an unbalanced line-level source (eg. a synthesizer, another mixer, an effects device, or whatever) to a mic input on the mixer.

Solution - connect an ADA1 between the source and a mic input with phantom power and set the Attenuator switch to "-20".
