I'm new to the forum, am embarking on an IB project, and am considering both of the above components to isolate the low frequencies. I will be running RCA's from a stereo amp into this component and then into my sub amp (a vintage stereo amp).
Has anyone ever used the Outlaw? It seems slick but it more $ than the Behringer. If I decide to go with the Behringer, I will be using RCA's .... can these be connected inexpensively?
I do not, in fact, have a sub output from my amp/preamp (which is vintage 1979)...so it sounds like if I go with the ICBM and then want to tailor the eq I would need to ADD a DSP1124...is this correct?
Thanks ... but I'm a bit confused. According to what I have read in the owners manual of the ICBM it states that it can be used with a 2 channel stereo:
"...Using the ICBM in a stereo system with a subwoofer..."
...under which it shows using preamp outs into the ICBM and then connecting the sub outputs into the amp that will drive the sub. My idea is to set all of the ICBM's channel controls to the 40Hz setting, thereby isolating the below 40Hz freq's to the sub, and then using its level to tweak the sound. The other think the ICBM does is converts the 2 channel low freq to mono.
In your last post do you mean that this will not work well?
The Marchand and Paradigm options are pricey...are there any components like this that go for about $200-250?
I've had an ICBM for several years now as well. I bought it because my AV receiver's LFE crosses over at 80hz and I wanted my mains crossed over at 60hz. It really is a great product. It takes all channels including the LFE as input, and then crosses over the mains sending the lower frequencies to the sub in addition to the LFE signal.
I hope I said that right. At any rate it really is a great product. Did exactly what I needed. I now have a BFD in addition for my pending IB. Two different animals that should play well together.
