Good for the money, but only that.
Anonymous 17.11.2016
This is a simple digital xover filter of "so so" build quiality;

The good:
- It's cheap! and it does what it supposed to withouth hangups. But that's about it.

The bad:
- The metering lights seem very unreliable, it seems like they have alot of "lag" in them
- The display has developed some issue that the letters get all mixed up and strange when you haven't touched any of the controls for a while, this problem came after about 1.5years of usage.
- Not very flexible in/out routing, there are just a couple of routing presets that you can choose from.
- You can't delay the left signal from the right only sub from top.
- The interface is slighly confusing and I keep pressing the wrong buttons even after several years of owning it.
- The parametric EQ are set to fixed bands, so it's more like a graphic eq with adjustable bandwidth than a proper parametric EQ.

I can't really comment on the sound as I havent compared it side by side to anything but I don't experience it as "bad sounding" but I probably wouldn't use it in a studio environment.

Attention, limiter programming error !
Istvánka 25.01.2021
Attention, it is very important !
In the limiter menu, "ATTACK, HOLD and DECAY time" is reversed.
Higher values corresponds to the fastest operation.
This is an old firmware bug that has not been fixed by the chinese manufacturer.
The other features work perfectly,

Excellent basic unit.

This unit is a fantastic, basic crossover and speaker management system. Its exceptionally simple to use, with Xover, parametric EQ and limiter alongside delays. Happily recommend and buy again.

it took a bit to fully understand how to use it but it's great! there are a few things missing the user manual but it becomes pretty intuitive when it comes o its usability. Totally recommend it!
