LX-2™ Passive Line Splitter & Attenuator

Part No. R800 1033 00

  • Split one audio signal to two destinations simultaneously
  • Jensen® transformer equipped for exceptional audio quality
  • Eliminates hum and buzz caused by ground loops
  • Variable trim control can be engaged for easy level adjustment

The Radial LX-2™ is a passive balanced line level audio splitter that allows you to easily send an audio signal to two different destinations at once without noise, while also providing the ability to attenuate the signal to tame hot outputs from a mixing console or mic preamp.

The input of the LX-2 features a XLR/TRS combo jack, which allows you to connect balanced or unbalanced line level signals to be split to two different destinations. A premium Jensen® transformer JT-11-FLPC inside provides exceptional frequency response and phase coherency to ensure that the highest audio quality is maintained, while isolating the two outputs from each other to eliminate hum and buzz from ground loops. Ground lift switches on each of the two XLR outputs help to further reduce noise from ground loops. For situations where a level adjustment is required, the trim control on the LX-2 allows you to attenuate overly hot signals. This lets you drive your mic preamps hard to achieve coloration, while trimming the level at the LX-2 to avoid clipping the inputs of your recording interface. This trim control is activated by a recessed ‘set & forget’ switch; for live use or in situations where attenuation is not needed, simply disengage this switch to prevent accidental and unwanted level adjustments.

The LX-2 is built with 14-gauge steel to ensure it continues to reliably perform night after night even on the most demanding tours, while a book-end design protects the connectors and switches. Rigid I-beam construction prevents the circuit board from being torqued, eliminating the possibility of damaged connections. The LX-2 has a compact footprint, with the added benefit of allowing up to 8 units to be rack-mounted using the Radial J-Rak™.

The Radial LX-2 is an uncompromising problem solver for your audio toolkit, providing Jensen® transformer-isolated line level splitting and attenuation in a compact and rugged device.

LX-2™ - Applications
Splitting line outputs on stage

Send the output of a mic pre or line level device to a recording interface as well as the PA system

Split the output of a mic preamp in the studio

Send the output of a single preamp to two compressors simultaneously. Use the level trim to push your preamp harder for coloration without distorting the compressor inputs.



Using the LX-2 for parallel effects processing

Split the output of a preamp to feed an outboard effects device while also sending a clean signal to your recording interface. Blend the signals together in your DAW for parallel processing.
