The Radial 8ox is a high-performance 8-channel 3-way mic splitter that is equipped with an input and three outputs: a direct feed for 48V phantom return, an auxiliary feed with ground lift switch and a transformer isolated output. Although primarily designed for mic signals, the 8ox is equipped with a -36dB pad for line level sources, making the 8ox highly adaptable for all types of signal splitting. The 8ox is particularly well suited to accommodate live recording by delivering a transformer isolated audio signal path for the recording engineer while providing a direct feed to the front of house and monitor consoles.
For maximum flexibility, several connector options are available. Inputs may be accessed via the front panel, using standard XLRs, or the rear panel, with a choice of either 25 pin D-subs (wired to the Tascam standard) or Euro screw-down terminal connectors. Outputs include D-subs and Euro connectors, which are also located on the rear panel. These make it easy to connect to popular multi-track recording systems while providing easy termination for permanent installations.
Because it is 100% passive, the 8ox does not require any power to make it work. Maximum durability is ensured with heavy duty 14 gauge steel construction throughout. A frame-mount version of the 8ox, the 8ci, provides an excellent option for installation inside standard NEMA electrical enclosures. The Radial 8ox comes standard with custom wound transformers or may be special ordered with Jensen Transformers.
