Minidrive is the "Little Brother" to the BSS "Omnidrive", an industry standard in touring sound systems. Known for it's tremendous durability and fantastic performance.

FDS-336T Overview
3 Inputs, 6 Outputs
Now offering the maximum flexibility in one rack space, the FDS-366T can be used in multiple applications: Stereo 3-way; mono 4, 5 and 6-way (units can be slaved for large stereo systems), triple bi-amp or even dual tri-amp for stage monitors; zoning with EQ and delay to 6 zones; LCR studio monitoring, each channel giving a 2-way output; and more. This means standard inventory and less redundancy as one model can be used for either FOH or monitor racks.96kHz Sample Rate
Using a sample rate of 96kHz not only prepares the FDS-366T for use with digital sources, but means that we can give you a wider, more open sound thanks to an extended bandwidth. The use of a higher Nyquist frequency means we have been able to design more accurate filter sets and so enhance the performance.High Specification Converters
With technology continually advancing in the digital domain, we use high specification A/D and D/A converters, giving the 366T a dynamic range of greater than 112dB, possibly the best performance for such a processor currently available.A New Filter Design for Outstanding Performance
The new Version 2.0 firmware includes new filter designs in the shape of the WHISEWORKS - NTM topology. This new design, developed by Neville Thiele and patented by Australia's Precision Audio, provides the fastest roll-off slopes outside of the pass band in modern IIR filter designs, while maintaining zero phase difference between adjacent bands throughout the crossover region, preventing beam-tilting. Listening tests have shown a marked and noticeable enhancement in performance over traditional Linkwitz-Riley 48dB filters. The new filters are kinder on the ear, and like the L-R design also maintain a flat frequency response throughout the crossover region.
Our WHISEWORKS - NTM filters are designed around 4th order and 8th order topologies. Since WHISEWORKS - NTM filters have a very fast roll-off this can often be used in place of an 8th order Linkwitz-Riley filter with a much improved group delay characteristic. These new filters use a notching characteristic to 'speed-up' the roll-off slope. This notching action causes the slope to change continuously, actually nearing infinity dB/Octave close to the notch, which is one octave away from the crossover frequency (in each direction).
Existing users can upgrade their FDS-366 to include WHISEWORKS - NTM filters by registering their unit on the BSS Audio website at, where you can also find a white paper describing in detail the advantages of this new design.
