The 215s from dbx is a dual channel, 15 band, 2/3 octave graphic equalizer housed in a single space, rack mount chassis. The processor is equally suitable for live applications, audio installations, and for use in a studio.

The unit features 20mm non-conductive sliders that can be set to either +/-6dB or +/-12dB of boost or cut. A global control provides +/-12 dB of input gain. A 12dB per octave, 3dB down at 50Hz low-cut filter can also be switched in if required.

From its extended frequency response and excellent dynamic range, to the quality components and meticulous attention to detail, the 215s offers exceptional sound and rugged reliability.

      Comments about dbx 215s - Graphic EQ:

      I use this unit in the balanced monitor output chain from my DP-32 to XLR input on 215 to XLR input on my Samson 100W monitor amp to my ART near-field monitors. Easy to use, smooth sliders. the white face stands out like a sore thumb in my rack, but makes the graphics easy to read in a darkened studio. No power switch. Nice LED input signal monitor.

            Comments about dbx 215s - Graphic EQ:

            A solid, well designed product with clean , smooth sliders. Easy to set up. No separate power switch so you need to power it from a switched component. Most other consumers seem to use the 215 for applications OTHER than home stereo , but I use it to listen to a variety of music, both rock AND punk. Great for tailoring your stereo to any room.
