Whirlwind IM2 overview

  • 1Description

The IMP 2 from Whirlwind is a rugged built, single channel, passive direct box. The unit converts a line or instrument level unbalanced signal to a low impedance microphone level balanced signal.

Direct boxes are often referred to as "DI" boxes. This stands for "Direct Injection" as their main purpose is to convert unbalanced and/or high impedance instrument signals into a format suitable for direct connection to a mixing console - without the use of a microphone.

1/4" parallel wired in/out jacks
Ground Lift switches to help eliminate hum and buzz

    Whirlwind IM2 reviews

    IMP 2 Direct Box is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 17.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well made and great sounding DI I run sound once a month for an acoustic performance show featuring many artists taking the stage throughout the evening. The venue traditionally provided mics, cables, and DI's but over time those items have either gone missing or have fallen into disrepair. I decided I would start taking my own mics, cables, and DI's so I went on the hunt for a low cost, but well made and decent sounding box and the IMP 2 has it all! I don't need all that active circuitry and switches and buttons and such, just a simple box to convert instruments into mic sends and Whirlwind has that covered with this excellent product. This little box sounds great too!!!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just as advertised Bought a pair of these for use at Church after much searching. I did check user reviews and other information that was available which helped in making the decision. We have used them to connect one amplified acoustic guitar and one base guitar to the main mix. So far we have no complaints. Both instruments are easy to regulate, there is no hum or distortion of any kind, neither any loss in sound quality. Good product!!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Affordable DI worth using Just got one for my home studio, and it does everything I expected it to. The ground lift is effective, resulting sonics are balanced & pretty clear. There's a little bit of coloration - relative to a Radial JDI, there's a subtle veiling of high end - and I haven't used it onstage / through a loud PA; but I'd think most folks shopping at this price point will be totally satisfied. Buy with confidence.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Passive DI for the price Used in a smaller room for our church youth worship band. Great sound, well constructed, perfect for electric guitar.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Quiet Workhorse That's Always There This little gadget is one of those things I was always saying at many gigs, Right now a DI box would fix the problem. I use the IMP 2 to go between my keyboard mixer and the snake with one band and my 12-string to the board on my other gig. This thing is built like a tank, quiet, sounds great, and small enough to fit just about anywhere. At the price B&H sell this for I'm planning on buying several more for my project studio. It is money well spent.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent little Di Box... It's a great little Di box, especially for the price. I recently had to mix a band and i used the three that i purchase here in B&H one to connect the bass guitar, an other one to connect rhythm guitar and the last one to connect a six strings guitar. All of them worked perfectly, the sound to my mixing board was super clear. I strongly recommend to any sound engineer.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as expected I bought this direct box to replace an older whirlwind box we had thinking that the box was bad. It turns out that the box was ok and now I have a backup. It turns out to be a bad output on the bass players amp. Solution, put bass directly into direct box and feed both mixer and bass amp from the direct box. Everyone is happy!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great direct box for it's price range I've been using many of these Whirlwind IMP 2 direct boxes for the last 15yr+ and have yet to have one break down on me. It's built like a tank, gives off a clean signal and takes care of most grounding problems. Great purchase.
