  1. BFD or Not

    REW Forum
    I'm trying to figure out what to make of the hump between 30 and 40HZ and the dip at 45HZ. The way the room is set up moving the subs is not an option. 2 Peerless 12" w/ passive radiators under each main. The first graph is subs only and the second is subs and mains. I'm wondering if a BFD...
  2. Try to EQ Sub plus L/R powered mains?

    REW Forum
    Funny, I've read a bunch over here but I guess this is my first post. I've played with REW and BFD for a while, and am not having much success getting my room EQ to settle down. I think I know why, but don't know how to attack the problem. I did a few searches here and found that it's not a...
  3. Help on BFD

    Electronic Processing/Equalization Devices
    Hi all, I am new to the forum, and am really getting into AV, Hi-fi and Subs. I bought a BK Monolith, and before long a sound meter. I now want to EQ my sub, and am finding it hard to choose between DCX2496 and DEQ2496 from Behringer. I think the pros for DCX2496 are: - - Can independently...
  4. BFD Hum - need help

    Electronic Processing/Equalization Devices
    I have a different sort of problem with my BFD. While the grood loop isn't new, I need another approach to making my own cables. I am running a Samson box to boost the line level, as the receiver's output isn't loud enough. So building an RCA to XLR cable won't work as I've researched...

  6. New to BFD need help

    Electronic Processing/Equalization Devices
    I just set up BFD. Everything is connected and volume level is set. I have already ran REW and produced a graph. I also had the BFD in bypass mode when setting volume level on the receiver. During all this time the save led is flashing is this ok? When I am done setting the volume level should I...

    Electronic Processing/Equalization Devices
    Greetings all! So im in the process of completing a second pair of custom infinity 12.1 perfect's, and now that i have a BFD, i was thinking about converting my first pair to a sealed enclosure and applying some EQ via the BFD. I was playing around with bassbox pro, and found that if i...
  8. Sub hum with BFD off or on

    Electronic Processing/Equalization Devices
    Hello, I need to ask for some help with my BFD please. I have the BFD 1124P and with it on or off I get a very loud hum through my Subs. I have run Rew and balanced all my speakers and I have the midi cable connected to the BFD. Gone through the setup on the BFD using the guide I found on this...
  9. Alternative to BFD, FBQ, DEQ, Anti-Mode, SMS-1

    Electronic Processing/Equalization Devices
    I have found the Sabine GRQ-3102S. I was able to pick it up off ebay for under $80 shipped. It is an option instead of the BFD, SMS-1, or Anti-Mode.... It is a graphic/parametric equalizer (plus more) that you control by computer. There are no flashing lights or anything distracting. You can...

    Hi. This is my first post on the site. A member on the other big site told me about this place and I thought I'd check it out. Already checked out the BFD guide and looked around a little. I like what I see! :bigsmile: Now, on to my post... I need some help hooking up all my equipment I'm...
  11. My BFD HT is done

    DIY Speakers
    I have completed my DIY HT recently. I used Bill Fitzmaurice plans for the TLAH mains and Table Tuba subs. I modified the plans to use bigger/more woofers and tweeters in the mains and center, but built the 2 table tubas per the plans. They are vented through the wall from an unfinished ajoining...

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    Which one for sub tuning and why? I'd like to know the pros and cons of each. Thanks.
  13. Will BFD increase input sensitivty similar to what a CleanBox does?

    Electronic Processing/Equalization Devices
    I just finished my 14 cu foot IXL18.4 LLT sub tuned to 14hz. I am currently powering it with a Behringer EP2500 lead from a Panasonic XR-55 receiver. I am connecting my receiver to the EP2500 using the sub out (RCA) from my XR-55 into a 1/4 TS adapter into the EP2500. It's pretty apparent...
  14. REW, BFD, Audyssey = overloaded bass

    REW Forum
    I've been lurking here for quite some time, trying to absorb everything I can. I've got an issue with REW, BFD, and Audyssey that I just can't seem to get a handle on. Taking some earlier advice, I first did a full Audyssey calibration with BFD out of the loop. I then hooked up REW, and the BFD...

    Electronic Processing/Equalization Devices
    When calibrating my system with 2 subs do I need to do it with one sub at a time (separately) or together? Thanks, Erle
  18. Newbie: BFD not turning on

    Electronic Processing/Equalization Devices
    Hi I got the 1124P a few months ago, but never got to set it up. Finally got time this weekend to try it out. I made all the connections and started the calibrations yesterday (Saturday). When I went back this morning to continue the calibrations, I noticed that the power switch was on. I turned...
  19. BFD RCA to TRS vs XLR input levels different

    Electronic Processing/Equalization Devices
    I just received a BFD and built a Processor to BFD RCA to XLR cable and noticed the input levels to the BFD were very low (bypass switch blinking and operating level button on back pushed in). So using an RCA to RCA cable with phone (two conductor adapter) connection to check if there was a...
  20. How wide is a BFD behind the front panel tabs?

    Electronic Processing/Equalization Devices
    I have an 17.5" space width. Could I fit an DSP1124 by trimming the rack mount tabs? The specs indicate it is 19" wide, but I think (hope) that is to the edge of the tabs. My sub, a Revel B15 has 3 eq filters, but they just can't seem to smooth out my room, so next stop appears to be a BFD...
