XLS 2000 peak limiter threshold setting
« on: April 04, 2017, 12:23:46 pm »

I'm getting ready to install a couple of the new XLS units for live use. I usually use a well-set compressor/limiter (Ratio: Infinity:1, Attack: 5 ms, Release: 1s) , to protect speakers.

It is quite common for my clients' operators to (attempt) run a system 10-20 dB over what the amps (and speakers) are designed for, to try and get it "just a little louder". The compressor/limiter I typically use provides 30+ dB of reduction, so even though things may start to sound squashed, the system is protected.

1. Is the built in Peakx limiter suitable to handle this kind of abuse, or should I continue to use an outboard limiter?

2. What is the relationship between between the clip LED and the Peakx limiter?

3. Can you provide specs. for the Peakx limiter (threshold, attack, release, max amount of gain reduction, etc)

First, you will need to change your display name to your full first and last name.

This thread will be locked until then.

... it's also too bad the manufacturer doesn't have this information...
