The Peavey ADI-Q is an active direct box with a 3-band equalizer built in. The EQ section is comprised of a bass band that's centered at 80 Hz, a sweepable midrange band that can be set between 120 Hz and 4 kHz, and a treble band with a 10 kHz center frequency. All three can be boosted by +10 dB or cut by -15 dB.

Send your signal to the mixer through the balanced XLR output. Connect to your stage amp through the Local Amplifier (pass-through) output. The Proc/Thru switch lets you choose whether or not to send the equalized signal to the Local output or just to the XLR.

The unit draws its power from the phantom power of the mixer it's connected to. If phantom power is not available, the can be powered with an optional 15VDC adapter. The ADI-Q can also function as an EQ stompbox in a guitar or bass rig, when powered by the adapter.

      Comments about Peavey ADI-Q Active Direct Interface with EQ:

      A great DI box! I play bass on a worship team in a large church. I play several basses from five string to fretless, active and non-active. I wanted an equalizer to dial in the tones a bit more because I only use an amp for monitoring. The ADI-Q is a good idea from Peavey. I can have more control over my sound before it goes to the board, and the box also has a "Local Out" jack for the bass monitor. The price makes this the best deal overall for someone who needs an equalizer for this purpose, with an added plus of a DI box. It's quiet, durable, and the quality is great.
