 The new dPDB™ Passive Direct Box features two high-quality direct boxes in one portable enclosure. It is a rock solid, roadworthy DI for connection of the outputs of electronic musical instruments (or other audio sources) to the balanced inputs of mixer consoles and other balanced inputs. It also allows connection of a music source to an instrument amplifier while simultaneously patching it to a mixer.

The dPDB™ features switchable Input Attenuation (0 dB, -20dB, -40dB), a 50k Ohm Instrument Input, 50k Ohm Parallel Link jack, a 600 Ohm XLR Output Jack, and a switchable Ground Lift.

The dPDB excels at impedance matching and improving the sound of any instrument plugged into it.

The ART dPDB™ is a must-have in any audio tool kit. Enclosed in a rugged steel chassis, it is designed and manufactured to the highest standards to provide years of quiet, reliable performance.

dPDB™ Applications:

Electric guitar and bass pick up output signals - The high impedance signal from a guitar or bass guitar pickup is translated by the dPDB™ into a low impedance balanced signal required by mixing consoles.
Keyboards and line level signals - The dPDB™ automatically balances and matches the line level outputs of modern electronic keyboards. If you are using a multiple keyboard setup and your keyboards are all plugged into a single instrument amplifier, the dPDB™ can be used to replace individual direct boxes. Simply send the output of the instrument amplifier to the dPDB™ and then to the console (instead of a separate DI box for each keyboard).
DJ console output signals - DJ mixers often supply only an unbalanced –10dB signal. The dPDB™ converts this signal to a balanced line level signal before it reaches the console, while providing a convenient method of connector transition with the capability to run long cables.
Speaker level signals - The dPDB’s ability to accept speaker level inputs from a power amplifier’s output allows post-amplifier, post eq and effects signals to be fed directly to the console. In this manner, a particular effect or amplifier sound can be sent directly to the mix.

Direct Boxes Series Overview
ART passive direct boxes allow for the connection of a music source to an instrument amplifier, while simultaneously patching it to a mixer or other source. They automatically balance and match the line level outputs of guitars, basses, modern synths and electronic keyboards.

For stage and studio, ART direct boxes are rugged, durable processors that will get the job done right!

What our customers are saying:
  • "I cannot thank you enough for helping us in our decision on the Presonus mixer. As I stated on the phone, your patience with me as I asked all kinds of questions is much appreciated. You were not only knowledgeable and professional but your overall sincerity to help was evident, even over the phone."
    Blessings, Pastor Glenn E.
  • "I want to thank Caylen Staub and All Pro Sound for helping me make the right decision on my new Allen & Heath QU-16 console purchase. I didn't know anything about the board and was very apprehensive about buying it. Caylen patiently explained the features and how the board would fulfill my sound needs. I even had second thoughts after receiving it and he talked me through my concerns. He guaranteed I would enjoy the board and he was absolutely right."
    Phillip S. - Richmond, VA
  • "Thank you for putting together the portable projection system for our church. It is exactly what we needed. We received the screen today and I set it up this afternoon. Even in our brightly lit sanctuary on a sunny day with lots of large windows the projector shown brightly with vivid color. I will be sure to call All Pro Sound with any of our future Audio Visual needs. It has been a pleasure working with you."
    Russell A. Jr
  • "I have ordered several things through All Pro Sound, and have always found you guys to have the best products at the best prices. But more than your products, your customer service is second to none. I always deal with Mike Tipton, who is SUPER knowledgeable about all of your products, and SUPER helpful. In short: Mike is awesome! It is always great working with him!"
    Matthew T. - Mercede, CA
  • "Great response time, great prices, and tremendous customer service are just a few of the accolades that describe All Pro Sound. For the past year we have been assisting a fellow church within our denomination with their audio / media design for their new sanctuary. A very special thank you to John Teelin and Steve Maples from All Pro Sound. From the pre wiring stage to the rush deliveries at the finish line, these guys have been there the whole way. Thank you All Pro Sound! We could not have done it without you!!!"
