Passive signal chain ?

Passive signal chain ?

What happens, if I chain 2 passive devices, e.g. if I put a passive EQ behind a Folcrom ? Do I loose the 34db twice ? or do I have to amplify after each unit ?

Yes, you'll loose at least that amount.

And depending on the actual input/output impedances of the units, probably more than that.

Many passive eq's has very-low input impedance and medium output impedance, thus not allowing you to chain them in any predictable way..

I wanted to use my old Eckmillers, they sound so wonderful.
But I see...
Thanks, Jakob
