Whirlwind PB12 overview

  • 1Description

The Whirlwind PB12 is a passive press box microphone output expander, housed in a rugged steel case, for Whirlwind's PRESSPOWER 2 and PRESSMITE active press box line outputs, or any other live press conference or forum application where a line level feed is available. It is intended for broadcast and commercial conferencing applications.

The PB12 distributes one line level input to multiple mic level outputs. Each output is transformer-isolated, providing superior interchannel isolation and ground lifting, helping to noise problems. Whirlwind's own TRSP-2 transformers are used throughout.

1 to 12 line in/microphone out passive press box expander for broadcast and business conference applications
Rugged, all-steel housing with convenient carrying handle
Transformer isolation and grounding for each output eliminate interchannel and RF noise

    Whirlwind PB12 reviews

    PB12 Passive Press Box with 1 Line in to 12 Mic out is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from PB12 Press Box Sturdy, very typical of Whirlwind products. Quiet, no cross talk between outputs. Replaced an aging battery powered Pressmite with this passive one - should last for years.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great This press box works flawlessly. Had to get it in on short notice ... Five lines to TV crews and four to recorders for print journalists. Worked great, will be using it whenever I need to give multiple feeds.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bulletproof, sounds good. For a passive mult box? Can't ask for anything more. Good sound, simple to use, high quality connectors, solid construction that can put up with klutzy cameramen stepping on it and clumsy reporters spilling chai mocha lattes too.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does exactly what we need it to do and does it well. A very basic device that allows us to send multiple audio feeds to cameras. We did need to boost our signal on our console more than we expected but it wasn't any big deal at all. Worked like a champ.
