Close Coupled Processing extends EAW’s passive crossover/filter design philosophy into
the realm of active processing. Where internal passive networks control multi-way systems
that use only one amplifier channel, Close Coupled Electronic Processors (CCEP’s) control
bi- or tri-amped systems and integrate full range systems with subwoofers.
Close Coupled Processing applies the same iterative approach to generate unique, asymmetrical
electronic filter sets/DSP configurations custom tailored (Close Coupled) to the actual response
of the loudspeaker or loudspeakers being controlled.
Because electronic and digital processors are more flexible than passive networks, the level of
integration CCEP’s achieve is even greater than what passive networks can provide. For this reason,
CCEP’s are not interchangeable. Using a CCP to control a system other than that for which it was
configured will degrade performance and could damage the loudspeakers.
EAW provides a variety of Close Coupled Electronic Processors to control or integrate loudspeaker
systems. The MX250 and MX8700 are pre-set at the factory for specific loudspeaker systems.
The MX8750 shares a similar internal architecture with the MX8700, but is programmed by the
end user. The MX8750 offers access to additional parameters, including 6 bands of parametric
EQ and up to 300 ms of delay on each input.
Low-cost, two-way, two-channel Close Coupled Electronic Processor? (CCEP?).
Configurations are preset at the factory for specific loudspeaker systems.
Signal processing parameters are not user adjustable – processor is set-and-forget.
