    Hello, I just bought 1 sq5 + 2 DX168 and would like to understand 2 things:

    1) With the 2 DX168 system I will have the total of 32 inputs and 16 outputs. Do these 16 outputs add up to 12 outputs from SQ5 to give me a total of 24 outs?

    2) If the SQ5 table only allows me to physically control 12 outputs, how can I access the outputs of the DX168 to create an individual mix for each of them, is it via software?

    Hi Bminozzi,

    The DX168 inputs and outputs can be used in addition to the SQ’s IO. So you can use up to 48 inputs and 28 outputs with this system and these are freely assignable, so you aren’t limited to how many outputs you can use, only to the amount of mix buses available.

    On the SQ, you have 12 configurable mix buses which can be an Aux or Group and mono or stereo. This is in addition to the LR bus, 3 stereo matrix buses and the PAFL.

    If you would like further assistance with getting your system set up, please start a ticket at support.allen-heath.com

    Thanks!
    Alex

    If you cascaded the DX168 units, you have use S-link output 17 from the Inout panel, to connect to output 1 of your second DX.
    If you have a hub, you have to press the S-link button twice to get to the second unit.
