OVERVIEW
The ART CX311 Stereo 2-Way Active Crossover with Subwoofer Output offers a superb level of
sound quality and its straightforward user interface gives you quick and easy access to all of its
features. Designed for home, club, or DJ system applications or live sound reinforcement, the CX311
employs 24dB/ octave state-variable, fourth-order, Linkwitz-Riley filters. These filters guarantee inphase outputs at all frequencies. This ensures the proper acoustic summing of common signals from
adjacent drivers in the crossover region.
The CX311 is a stereo 2-way electronic crossover with an additional subwoofer output. Each
crossover channel splits the frequency of an input signal into two separate signals, which may then
be sent to amplifiers or other signal processing equipment in a sound system. The subwoofer output
can be used to add punch to low bass audio.
Each stereo channel features high and low output level and crossover frequency rotary controls, while
the subwoofer channel features its own output level and crossover frequency rotary controls. A low
cut switch for each channel may be used to remove unwanted subsonic audio that can damage
amplifiers or speakers. Each stereo channel also includes a phase switch that can be used to detect
or correct audio path connection errors. The rear panel features balanced XLR and 1/4” TRS input
and output connectors. Power for the CX311 is internal.
The ART CX311 Stereo 2-Way Active Crossover with Subwoofer Output has been carefully designed,
engineered and manufactured to provide you with years of great sound and reliable service.

INSTALLATION
The ART CX311 may be used in a wide variety of applications and environments. Enclosed in a 1U
(1.75 inches high) rack-mountable, all-steel enclosure, the unit is designed for continuous
professional use. The depth is 5 inches. Mounting location is not critical. However, for greater
reliability, we recommend that you not place the unit on top of power amps or other sources of heat.
AC POWER HOOKUP
The CX311 has an internal power supply designed to operate from 105 to 120VAC at 50/60Hz. Units
manufactured for use outside of the United States have been modified to comply with the required
electrical specifications for the country of destination. Before plugging the CX311 into the AC mains,
make sure that all of the equipment following the crossover outputs are turned off or that all of the
outputs are turned down.
INPUT/OUTPUT CONNECTIONS
The CX311 has XLR and 1/4" TRS phone jack connectors for each input. Audio input connections are
active balanced although the 1/4" phone jack connections can easily be converted to unbalanced
operation by using two-conductor phone plugs. All output connections are unbalanced and use 1/4”
TS phone jacks.

OPERATION
FRONT PANEL CONTROLS
POWER SWITCH
The POWER switch applies and removes power to the unit. Make sure that all equipment after the
CX311 is either off or the outputs are turned all the way down before turning the CX311 on or off.
LOW OUTPUT LEVEL CONTROLS
Each channel of the CX311 has a LOW OUTPUT LEVEL control. These controls are used to trim the
output levels to the LOW OUTPUT jacks on the rear of the unit.
These controls cover the range of –30dB to +10dB of output gain trim, as indicated on the front panel.
In most cases you would set them to 0dB, for flattest response from the crossover. You can use these
controls to compensate for amplifier gain variations or efficiency of your speakers.
LOW CUT FILTER SWITCH
The LOW CUT switch activates a 30Hz high pass filter. There is one for each of the LOW OUTPUT
jacks and one for the SUBWOOFER OUTPUT. This filter is a 2-pole Butterworth design
(12dB/octave). Its response reduces spurious subsonic frequencies, which tightens up the low end
and helps to protect your amplifiers and speakers.
CROSSOVER FREQUENCY CONTROL
Each channel of the CX311 has a crossover FREQUENCY control to set the crossover point for the
high and low frequencies. These controls cover the frequency range of 250 Hz to 6 kHz. All
frequencies below the set frequency will be sent to the LOW OUTPUT and all frequencies above the
set frequency will be sent to the HIGH OUTPUT.
The main crossover filters are 4-pole Linkwitz-Riley designs (24dB/octave). This yields a sharp rolloff
to help protect speakers and the outputs sum to a flat response.
HIGH OUTPUT LEVEL CONTROL
Each channel of the CX311 has a HIGH OUTPUT LEVEL control. These controls are used to trim the
output levels to the HIGH OUTPUT jacks on the rear of the unit.
These controls cover the range of –30dB to +10dB of output gain trim, as indicated on the front panel.
In most cases you would set them to 0dB, for flattest response from the crossover. You can use these
controls to compensate for amplifier gain variations or efficiency of your speakers.
PHASE SWITCH
Each channel of the CX311 has a PHASE switch. These switches are used to switch the polarity
(invert the phase) of the signals going to the HIGH OUTPUT jacks. Normally you would leave these
6
switches in the out (NORM) position. Pushing a button in (INVERT position) may be used to help
correct audible phase-related problems.
SUB OUTPUT LEVEL CONTROL
This control is used to trim the audio output level to the SUBWOOFER OUTPUT jack on the rear of
the unit. The subwoofer signal is used to provide extra bass via a mono subwoofer speaker in your
system.
This control covers the range of –30dB to +10dB of output gain trim, as indicated on the front panel.
In most cases you would set it to 0dB. You can use this control to compensate for amplifier gain
variations or efficiency of your speaker.
SUBWOOFER FREQUENCY CONTROL
The SUBWOOFER FREQUENCY control sets the crossover point for signals going to the
SUBWOOFER OUTPUT jack. This control covers the frequency range of 50 Hz to 250 Hz. For this
function, both of the input channel signals are combined and frequencies below the set frequency will
be sent to the SUBWOOFER OUTPUT. This is in addition to the normal signals that are sent to each
of the channels other outputs.
REAR PANEL CONNECTORS
It is easy to interface the unit with a wide variety of equipment. The rear panel has balanced XLR and
1/4” inputs as well as unbalanced 1/4” outputs.
XLR INPUT JACKS
The XLR input connections are balanced and follow the AES standard for wiring: Pin 1 = Ground, Pin
2 = Hot (+) and Pin 3 = Cold (-). These inputs directly parallel the 1/4” inputs.
1/4” INPUT JACKS
The 1/4” input connections are balanced with Tip = Hot (+), Ring = Cold (-), and Sleeve = Ground.
These inputs directly parallel the XLR inputs.
1/4” OUTPUT JACKS
The 1/4” output jacks are unbalanced with Tip = Hot (+) and Sleeve = Ground. They are used for
sending signals to amplifiers, or other unbalanced equipment.

APPLICATIONS
Typical Setup
For a stereo 2-way system, separate high frequency (horn or tweeter) and low frequency (bass)
speaker cabinets are used for each channel (left and right) of the sound system and are driven by
their own power amplifiers.
The crossover is used to split each channel's signal into two frequency bands, which feed separate
amplifiers. This delivers the proper frequencies to each speaker cabinet as well as allowing its
associated amplifier to produce acoustic power more efficiently.
It is very important that you use caution when selecting the crossover points for any system.
Refer to the documentation that came with your speaker cabinets for information on their
proper frequency ranges. This is especially important for high frequency horns; damage may
occur from sending lower frequencies than specified into the drivers!
Signal Flow
In most situations, the crossover is the last piece of equipment in the signal chain before the power
amplifiers. Signal flow is as follows:
Mixer → Equalizer → Crossover → Power Amplifier → Speaker Cabinets
Sometimes a limiter is placed between the mixer outputs and the equalizer or after the equalizer for
system protection.
Initial Setup Tips
1.
2.
Set all level controls to their full counter-clockwise position (-30dB.)
Connect the outputs of your mixer (or equalizer) to the inputs of the CX311. If stereo,
Channel One is left.
3. Connect the LOW output of Channel One to the power amplifier powering the low frequency
cabinets (left).
4. Connect the HIGH output of Channel One to the power amplifier powering the high frequency
cabinets (left).
5. Repeat for the right side of the system (Channel Two).
6. Connect the SUBWOOFER output to the subwoofer amplifier.
7. Set the crossover frequency for both channels (they should be the same if your PA cabinets
are the same).
8. Set the crossover frequency for the SUBWOOFER output to that recommended for the
subwoofer.
9. With the power amplifier volume controls turned all the way down, turn on all equipment in
the system.
10. With a program source running through the system, turn up the power amplifier volume
controls and slowly turn up the crossover output controls while checking each individual
output for sound and performance.
