    I want to equalize the monaural sound system of a school auditorium. Does the Behringer DEQ2496 (a current model) work well with REW and would it be suitable for this? Thank you.
  3. Controlling Behringer DEQ2496 from listening position

    Electronic Processing/Equalization Devices
    The DEQ2496 front panel is connected to the main unit by a short flat cable. You can use the front panel as a wired "Remote Control" I extended the short flat cable with a 5 Meter flat cable and this way I have full control of the DEQ2496 when I am sitting in my listening positioning in my...
  4. Issue with Ultracurve Pro DEQ2496

    REW Forum
    Hi guys, I'm hoping someone here has experience with this equalizer. I'm have the equalizer located between my pre amp and amp in my system, and I cannot seem to get the LED meter (the two channel bouncing lights) to illuminate past the first light regardless of the volume of the system. Even...
  5. Deq2496

    Electronic Processing/Equalization Devices
    In REW: can DEQ2496 use the filters generated for DCX2496 (since DEQ in not listed as option on the EQ list)? Also, the DEQ has GEQ, PEQ and FBD. If entering the correction filters manually, should it be in DEQ or FBD ? Lastly, can the filters be exported via USB/Midi convertor set to DEQ...

  11. Behringer deq2496 as subwoofer PEQ

    New Member Introductions
    My first post. I just built a three-subwoofer stack per side using the GR Research SW-12-16FR servo speakers in an open baffle design. Although the servo amps come with defeatable built-in PEQ, I find that its range is not adequate to correct the freq response curves in my room. I have a DEQ...

  13. DEQ2496 and calibrated mics

    SPL Meters | Mic's | Calibration | Sound Cards
    I'm trying to help out a customer, and since I'm a little out of my depth I figured I'd ask for help. A customer bought a microphone expecting that the mic had been physically modified to produce a flat response rather than relying on a correction curve to flatten the response. The issue is...
  14. DEQ2496 + REW

    REW Forum
    I was hoping that the new REW version (by the way john, congratulations) would support DEQ2496. It doesn't. I believe that the problem with using FBQ2496 via Midi is because the Midi controls differ from thos of the DEQ2496 so it is not possible to automatically download the filters. The same...

  16. DEQ2496 and DCX2496 in signal chain. REW / sub EQ preference?

    Electronic Processing/Equalization Devices
    I am running source --> SRC2496 --> DEQ2496 --> DCX2496 --> amplifiers --> speakers 3 way stereo (6 channel) triamp. I want to use REW to EQ the low end, as I understand this is more accurate than letting the RTA on the DEQ handle these frequencies. As both the DEQ and the DCX are capable of...
