Whirlwind IMPJT

Whirlwind IMPJT 

Direct Box

The IMPJT from Whirlwind is a single channel, passive direct box featuring a Jensen transformer. The transformer is well known for providing a wide frequency response and superior noise reduction.

The unit provides two 1/4" jacks, one for input and the other for a "loop through" of the signal source. The jacks are wired in parallel and either can be used for either function. The male XLR jack delivers a low-impedance, balanced output for connection to a mixing console or workstation.

A ground lift switch cuts the ground connection between the input and output of the unit when set to the LIFT position, eliminating any ground loop that could be present in the circuit.

  • Top of the line passive DI featuring a Jensen transformer - renown for wide frequency response and superior noise reduction
  • Ground lift switch eliminates hum and buzz
  • Rugged metal box provides extra shielding and helps extend the life of the unit

Whirlwind Micmute-PT

Whirlwind Micmute-PT 

Push-to-Talk Switch Pedal

The Whirlwind Micmute boxes offer passive switching solutions for controlling the on and off conditions of a microphone or balanced line signal via footswitch or finger switch operation.

There are three styles, which cover all the essential mic control functions. Each style of Micmute is available with two types of actuator; a heavy duty footswitch (models PT, PM, PP) and a finger operated version for desktop use (models PTD, PMD, PPD).

Each box has a female XLR input and a male XLR output jack. When no signal is passing through the boxes, the output jack is configured to mute the input of the connected audio device.

All three styles of MicMute will pass phantom power for use with condenser type microphones.

The Micmute PT is configured as Push to Talk switches, meaning that the input signal is normally not connected to the output; nothing is passing through the box. When the switch is depressed and held down, the signal is turned on and passed through to the output. The signal is disconnected as soon as the switch is released.

Whirlwind PODDI

Whirlwind PODDI 

Single Output Summing Direct Box

The Whirlwind podDI is a single output summing direct box. Use it to connect CD and MP3 players, computer sound card outputs, DJ mixers, etc. to professional equipment with balanced inputs, such as a mixing console.

The podDI accepts stereo inputs and sums them into a single mono output. A variable attenuator on each input allows level matching between left and right inputs. This makes the podDI a passive mixer in split track audio applications, balancing the voice track and the music track levels in the summed mono output.

Signal is input via 3.5mm (1/8") stereo TRS jack or color-coded RCA phono jacks. An unused input can be used as a "loop through". Output is via a balanced male XLR jack.

  • Features a ground lift switch to help eliminate hum and buzz
  • Can also be used as a high quality single input

Whirlwind SPLIT 6

Whirlwind SPLIT 6 

Line Level Parallel Splitter

Features 1 female XLR input wired to 6 male XLR outputs. Perfect when adding extra amplifiers to a system, connecting multiple powered speakers, splitting intercom lines, etc.

Line level outputs can usually be split 6 times without noticeable loss of signal quality. The actual number of splits that can be accomplished depends on the level of the source signal and the impedances of the source and destinations in a particular application. It is not recommended that the SPLIT 6 be used to split a microphone level signal to more than two outputs. Attempting to do so may result in poor frequency response and reduced signal level. The SPLIT 6 may be used to split microphone level signals in most applications if this limit is observed. For more information, please refer to tech article "High and Low Impedance" .
