115th AES CONVENTION, NEW YORK, NY, October 10, 2003 — XTA Electronics, a leader
in sound reinforcement, digital signal processing, and speaker controller systems for the past 10 years, is showing its GQ600 Dual Channel Equalizer. As a leading choice of installers and contractors worldwide, the GQ600 meets the needs of high-quality sound systems with a complete and effective EQ solution.

The GQ600 is a precision dual channel 1/3rd octave graphic EQ, providing up to a 10dB boost or cut at 30 key frequency points between 25Hz and 25kHz. An optimized filter design is used to provide improved interpolation and narrow bandwidth performance, while high-quality 45mm long-throw sliders are used for increased resolution. The low-distortion circuitry and flat noise response of better than -98dBm ensure near silent performance and reliability in either install or touring systems.

The GQ600 also features a shelving High Frequency Trim section allowing for fast adjustments of overall High Frequency response and a sweepable High-Pass Filter with turnover frequencies at 10Hz and 150Hz. A fixed-frequency Low Pass Filter (18dB/octave) is also included for increased protection against High Frequency driver overload.

Audio Inputs and Outputs on the GQ600 include both balanced lockable XLR-type and "quick-wire" Klippon connectors, with optional transformer balancing available for both inputs and outputs. Each channel also offers a Gain control and an EQ In/Out switch. For increased dependability, the unit includes a relay fail-safe bypass with turn-on delay and peak level indicator LED’s.

As a result of its performance and reliability record over the past decade, the GQ600 has remained a top choice of audio professionals, with installations in some of the world's most varied and demanding rooms. These include the Sound Factory and Live at the Apollo from the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York, NY, as well as club Mission in Calle, Columbia. The XTA GQ600 continues to be a prominent EQ solution in today's top live sound and install systems.

The GQ600 comes housed in a sturdy, 3U rackspace unit with an optional Perspex™ security cover offered for added safety.

The GQ600 is available for a list price of $1650.00.
