The Xilica XP Series is the little brother to our top of the line XD family of digital processors (the major difference between the two being the addition of FIR filters and Digital I/O on the XD models).

Building on the success of the XD and our original Classic series processors the Xilica XP Series brings a new level of audio performance and value to the world of fixed architecture DSP for live sound production and fixed audio installations. Designed and engineered in Canada, only Xilica provides a state of the art 96kHz, 40 Bit Floating Point DSP Engine, High Performance 24 Bit Converters, and Precise Algorithms at this value level. The result is “best in class” audio performance.


Xilica XP-8080 8 in x 8 out Digital Matrix Audio Processor

The Xilica XP-8080 8 in x 8 out Digital Matrix Audio Processor can be operated stand alone, but ultimate control can be achieved by using the supplied XConsole GUI for Windows XP and Vista. XConsole is Windows-compatible only. To configure your X Series products using a Mac, please use Xilica Designer software. Connectivity over RS232, USB and Ethernet are standard.

Low Cost -115dB Digital Matrix System / Loudspeaker Controller – 96kHz, 8 PEQ, 31-Band GEQ, Delays, Mixers, In/Out Crossovers, Compressors, Output Limiters, USB/RS232/Ethernet

The XP-8080 is an 8 in 8 out professional matrix DSP system controller. 24 bit AD/DA conversion and a 40 bit floating point DSP at a 96kHz sampling rate guarantee high end audio quality.

All 8 inputs offer:

  • 650ms delay,
  • 31-band graphic and
  • 8 parametric EQ’s, a
  • complete filter section (max 48dB) and a
  • compressor.

All 8 outputs offer:

  • 650ms delay, a
  • 8-band parametric EQ, a
  • complete filtersection (max 48dB) and a
  • true RMS limiter.


  • Cost-effective product featuring advanced processing algorithms, sophisticated connectivity options including Phoenix and XLR
  • Offers a range of flexible control options including front-panel, touch-screen, computer-based, smartphone and wall-plate
  • An evolution of the legendary Classic DLP family, with 40-bit floating-point DSP engine and 24-bit AD/DA converters
  • Simple, easy-to-configure software guarantees a quick setup and low training time – backed by Xilica’s global support offices

That makes the XP-8080 wireless ready and it can be used in a Ethernet network with max 16 units and remote control XPanel’s. The XP-8080 is an excellent choice among installers and live sound engineers that are looking for high end audio quality at a limited budget.
