The 882i Sonic Maximizer from BBE delivers the sound-improving benefits of a Maximizer signal processor in dual mono operation. The unit is housed in a single rack space chassis with balanced XLR inputs and outputs and is designed for applications requiring low noise, high headroom and +4dBu input levels.

For each channel there is a pair of Lo Contour and Process knobs plus a five-segment LED input 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 red 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 control is for adjusting the level of phase corrected high frequencies in the program material.

Applications for the unit include multi-track studios, professional and semi-pro sound reinforcement, broadcast transmission, mobile DJ systems, nightclub sound systems and cassette copying.

      Comments about BBE Sound BBE882i Sonic Maximizer:

      I'm only giving this four stars because I haven't really had the chance to put it to the test in a full venue. We rehearse in a 12 x 12 room (which is tough for a nine piece horn band) but even in there we can hear a noticeable difference in the sound when the BBE is engaged. As one band member said, "it just sounds cleaner", and that it does. We have a gig coming up where we'll really be pushing it and I'm looking forward to hearing that.

      Excellent build and sound quality

      Comments about BBE Sound BBE882i Sonic Maximizer:

      This unit seems to be built well. Balanced XLR in and out is a nice feature of the unit not found in lower end models. More importantly, the improvement in the sound quality is superb. I use this as part of a mobile DJ setup and it adds considerable warmth to the low end without making it muddy. The highs are more crisp although I tend not to turn this feature up too much.

        I've always heard and read reviews about the BBE system. I decided to go for it. i am so glad I purchased this unit. It just works! It brightens, fattens and sharpens your overall sound. It can make any dull sound system sound great! Definitely spend the extra money and go with the balanced inputs & outputs. The extra incentive was getting the best price from B&H. No other merchant would even come close to match their price. I only shop at B&H Photo. Thank you gentleman for your service.

          I put this in my 3rd case of amps with a Peavey 7500 and the 882i just brings my entire set alive, if you don't believe it buy one and try it, I own 4 of them, one is on my home setup also.

          I use the BBE882i Sonic Maximizer in my PA system for over 5 years and it works great. Very easy to use and it delivers what it promises. If you want to increase your sound quality, this is the best value and you can hear the difference in sound quality. Would recommend for anyone with a sound system.

            When I turned on my system with this plugged in I was shocked. The little button to compare it with and without the effect is great to see what it does for your sound. Much fuller sound throughout. The only con I would say is that it seems that it deepens bass and makes highs stand out nicely but i wish there was a "mid" knob. other than that, very happy with this purchase!

              I just couldn't believe how much clarity and warmth it brought to the sound overall. I put it on my P.A. sytem and everything just sat better in the mix. Additionally, it really increased the headroom on my MG32/14fx Yamaha console.

              Bbe 882i is a great product for any performer whether you do live music or dj. We do them both and we see a clear advantage over not having used a maximizer before. Nowhere will you find this cheaper than this site, Guaranteed. I called others for so called price match and got laughed at...
