Setting the benchmark in system management and speaker processing

Intelli-X3 has been designed in close collaboration with sound engineers, system techs and integrators to excel in system management and speaker processing roles for live events and touring, prestigious installations and professional recording studios. With internal processing up to 192 kHz, high-end analogue circuit designs and mastering-grade compressors, Intelli-X3 has earned an outstanding reputation for reliability and audio quality.


The Intelli-Series is designed for roles including signal routing and distribution, room equalisation, speaker and driver time alignment and crossover implementation. In addition to serving at FoH and Monitors on tours and festivals and in fixed installations, Intelli-X3 is also eminently suitable as a room equaliser, active crossover and /or audio DA in a studio or cinema.

Key features

192 KHZ

Featuring internal processing selectable from 44.1kHz to 192 kHz, Intelli-X3 provides full compatibility with both standard and high-end sample rate formats. Switchable convertors are provided on the inputs, making it easy to work with equipment operating at different sample rates.


Intelli-X3 has a built-in, fully redundant Dante module with rugged Neutrik locking etherCON connectors, enabling easy integration with a Dante network.


The Intelli-series is packed with all the system management tools necessary for comprehensive system alignment and EQ, through to the provision of IIR and custom FIR based crossovers.


Intelli-X3 is designed to interface easily into any Ethernet network via internal 3-way Ethernet switches. Both automatic IP (DHCP) and static IP configuration is provided as standard for plug ‘n play connectivity.


Four sync options are available: Dante, AES A/B, AES C/D and internal. Intelli-X3 has a three-tiered redundancy approach, automatically reverting to another source (defined by the user) if any source is lost, ensuring no loss in audio.


Intelli-X3 I/O is selectable in pairs as analogue, AES/EBU or Dante audio network, allowing a mix of audio formats to be accommodated simultaneously.


Intelli-X3 can be configured and adjusted on the fly via its front panel controls and LCD screen, with straightforward, icon-driven menus helping you to get straight to the parameter you need. Alternatively, APEX’s acclaimed Intelli-Ware software provides fast, intuitive control from your PC.


Intelli-Ware comes complete with an analyser/bridge feature, enabling control of all commonly used sound measurement tools found in WaveCapture’s Live-Capture and Rational Acoustics’ Smaart 7/8, all directly from within the software.


Intelli-Ware provides fast, intuitive control for Intelli-Series hardware from touch, tablet and tethered PCs. The interface uses simplified menus and icons for rapid access to all parameters. Intelli-Ware also offers comprehensive system-wide ganging, copy/paste and data management facilities, allowing complex configurations to be configured, presented and stored efficiently and intuitively. The software is accessible from multiple devices simultaneously – a feature welcomed by engineers needing to optimise audio from various locations throughout a venue or festival site.
