    Hello guys I am waiting for Behringer DEQ2496 ordered yesterday.. I am not a newbie to REW, having used it many times, mainly for measurements.. I want "to fix" few issues in the bass area, without and tonality and other attributes of the speakers (for which I like them - being a bit forward...

    REW Forum
    Hi I built these boxes 20 years ago. And this is their new cottage setup. Since I intend to pester this forum in the coming weeks...months?...years?!!! I may as well lay some descriptions. The room is 15'X15'X7.5'. The source is an Auzentech X-Meridian sound card. Optical wired to a DEQ2496...
  3. Using the DEQ2496 for a sub-peak limiter?

    Electronic Processing/Equalization Devices
    My subwoofer tends to make a lot of ruckus on certain bass demanding scenes in movies and I have been using the sub-peak limiter function on my processor to prevent the sub from making the stained noises.I'm going to be jumping into blu-ray soon and I'm going to be using the analog outputs of...
  4. Midi connection with DEQ2496

    Electronic Processing/Equalization Devices
    Can anyone confirm that the Midi feature will work with the Behringer DEQ2496? I just purchased the M Audio Uno for the connection an apparently the driver installed successfully on my PC with Windows 7RC. Also assuming that it will work, would I be correct to select the FBQ2496 under equalizer...
  5. DEQ2496 digital input volume

    Electronic Processing/Equalization Devices
    Hi, I'm looking for a way to lower the input level of the digital output from my CD player, connected via toslink to the digital input on the DEQ. Currently, even at modest SPL levels, the input meter on the DEQ is in the red zone! My CD palyer has no digital output volume control, so I hope...

  8. DEQ2496 RTA question

    Electronic Processing/Equalization Devices
    I have a question about the RTA on the DEQ that I haven't been able to figure out. I'm trying to figure out if the level bar on the display which on mine is indicating a level of -105db on a scale of 0 to -130dB is indicating my signal to noise ratio or dynamic range on the DEQ? The actual RTA...

    REW Forum
    OK, after staying up WAY too late last nite, I think I understand what I'm doing, a little. Here's my question: I'm looking at the suggested corrections in the EQ filters dialog box and I'm trying to figure out how to enter the correct settings into my DEQ2496. In the 2496, I have selected...

  13. Alternative to DEQ2496

    Electronic Processing/Equalization Devices
    I'm looking for a similar device with bass management built in (high pass filter is a must). It would be placed between my cd transport and DAC. Basically I want digital processing (either toslink, coax or aes/ebu) to bypass ADC and DAC. I'm trying to integrate 2 subs with full range speakers...
  14. DEQ2496 phantom power for ECM8000?

    SPL Meters | Mic's | Calibration | Sound Cards
    I plan to use a DEQ2496 with an ECM8000. I have read the DEQ2496 manual, but cannot figure out if the phantom power on the DEQ2496 allows output of the ECM8000 into my soundcard. Do I still need to buy a mic preamp like the 802? It looks like it just works with DEQ2496. I am using a SoundMax...

  16. FBQ2496 versus DEQ2496

    Electronic Processing/Equalization Devices
    Can somebody explain why the DEQ2496 is unable to do the job with REW? I have played with REW for a couple of days using the radio shack spl meter. Also tried some eq settings on the DCX2496(digital crossover) which I have in the system. The more I read and practice with REW the more I like it...

    Electronic Processing/Equalization Devices
    Hi this is my first post here. Last weekend I took delivery of a DEQ2496 with the intention of EQing my main speakers in my Home Cinema set up. So far I'm really happy with the improvement, I haven’t spent too long on it yet, I've only carried out an auto set up and the improvement is really...
  18. DCX2496 vs. DEQ2496

    Electronic Processing/Equalization Devices
    I've been reading about both of these and my head is sort of spinning. I've gathered that Illka owns and likes the DCX model, but I am still wondering what the differences are... or more specifically, is there anything the DCX can do that the DEQ cannot (for subwoofer/bass management)? Also...
