Anyone know the Model of this Carver Xover?

Hello all, back in the 80s I had a Phase Linear Active Crossover made by Bob Carver, it was a one space rackmount 2-way mono 3-way stereo unit with black background and orange colored writing, can anyone tell me the model name or number of that unit please or any leads on how I can get that info? Thanks.

The pic is not clear but that has to be it [thank you very much!], I had thought it was "X10". Anyway, I would like to get back this unit but searching the net, I can't find it, I loved the analog sound of it but went digital some years back. Any other crossovers [any brand] from that era any of you guys can mention which might give similar sound? I am thinking of trying one of the old Furman's but not sure.

JBL M-552 or M-553. M-552 2 way stereo 3 way mono and M-553 3 way stereo 4 way mono. Both quieter than a graveyard.

I never knew JBL made a crossover, aside from being quiet, regarding quality, functionality and frequency options, is it as good as the X20?

Don't know about to X20 but the JBL'S are excellent crossovers. I owned both at one time. Google them and check them out.
