Sir,
recently i have purchase my BFD 2496.
Do i need external audio card or configure this with my PC inbuilt sound card.
Please give me suggestion for m-audio mobile use external
You can manually set the individual PEQ's on the BFD with the controls on the unit itself, however you will need to run REW to see what effects the filter settings you set up actually do, and to set them properly for your system. REW is freely available to all members of HTS

I had no idea on the difference but if you had the midi cable, you can request the firmware from behringer to upgrade.

My FBQ2496 come with MIDI disable. My firmware is ver 1.1. What's your firmware version? You can see the firmware version when you powering up the unit before showing RUN.
Mine came shipped with firmware 1.0. Any idea whats been corrected or changed between 1.0-1.1?

Mainly looking to avoid sharp dips or peaks in the crossover region, the sub's phase or receiver's distance settings are your main tools, yes. Also want to see how the overall level of the sub compares with the mains.

Re: FBQ2496 - a few initial setup questions

I'm not 100% sure of what to look for when integrating the sub with the mains. An as smooth transition as possible at the crossover frequency? What else? Do I accomplish this solemnly with the phase/distance to sub relative to the mains?

Re: FBQ2496 - a few initial setup questions

The correction looks to have worked well. It is worth taking some time to get used to the equalised response, and to take a wider look to see how the sub is integrating with the fronts.

Re: FBQ2496 - a few initial setup questions

Thank you John. I was to slow, I meant to edit my post and remove the questions cuz I figured it all out Sorry for wasting your time a bit.

Recived my unit today - hooked it up and programmed my first filters, and I have to say - I love the FBQ!

Now I'm gonna tweak tweak and tweak ... what would you say is prefered if I find the bass a tad 'tame' (need a bit more ooomph/kick), try a steeper house curve or simply turn up the volume of the subwoofer? Also, any other tips to improve things are very much welcomed!

Here's the initial measurements:

Baseline with fronts


Corrected with filters (with fronts)
