    I have a Sampson S-direct getting a signal from my receiver going to a FBQ2496 and on to a EP4000 driving my sub. I am trying to get Audyssey into the mix but I can't find a way that does not cause an odd FR. I had heard that you can turn off the sub and run Audyssey, then turn on the sub and...

    Hi, can anyone answer the following for the FBQ2496 1/ does it have the power on "thump" similar to the 1124? 2/ When power is first applied to the unit will it come up in standby or "on" 3/ in 2/ will it come up in bypass or "active" My questions relate to integrating it into my HT where...

    Hey guys first post but I have been reading for some time trying to get a grip on this rew. I thought I was buying the right EQ to control 3 18in ported subs that I have being built right now. I'm just finding out I need to order the Midi communication interface to program the EQ. Is this...

    …to the sub bass performance? I read somewhere that it adds a 1 feet delay. I’d like to clarify this, as there no mention of this in the users manual about a delay. Thanks

    Hi I have recently purchased the FBQ2496 for the purpose of eliminating feedback when perfoming live karaoke. On the face of it, the FBQ2496 works well in suppressing feedback when performing karaoke. The FBQ is between the mixer output and the speakers input. My question is this: I dj with a...

    Hello Is there a way to have more than one EQ at a time set in the FBQ? Is it possible to use both L and R inputs on the back with Y cable or adapter from Receiver to FBQ then going to the sub. Then store presets in the each and be able to switch between them via the front button? Also I just...

    I have done a bunch of reading on these units, and really like the looks of the DCX2496 for its speaker management abilities. But I can't find much info on the parametric and band pass eq abilities. Does this have 1/60 octave para eq like the BFD and FBQ? My goal is to be able to take a two...

    I know this graph is off the standard scale but I copied it after setting up the filters as suggested by Bruce. Any changes need to be done? I did drop the bump in the 55hz range a db but didn't remeasure. Target is with Bruce's "house curve". All filters set up in FBQ manually (no MIDI cable)...

    Any thoughts on using it as a simple way of toning down the dialogue bleed though which hasn’t been a huge issue just a lousy high pass filter on the Eltax A 12-R or maybe I listen to much? I’ve eliminated the filters for its other use same with the other sub that’s used for LFE.1 or if I like...

    I finally received FBQ2496 and re ran REW to make sure I was getting the same results. I then loaded the BFD manually with the filters in PEQ mode. I removed bypass mode and PEQ mode so the bfd indicates "RUN". I then ran REW engaging bfd to see the results expecting to see a graph that looks...

    I am new to this software and the 2496. I have been playing with it for about a week doing sweeps and downloading the filters via MIDI with no problems. I am actually utilizing the SMS-1 into my 18" Energy subwoofer and have been quite happy with it. I added the 2496 because I have the...

    When i set up my FBQ2496 the set up tells you to set the volume to your standard listening level then to adjust the sub gain up in the AVR till it Peaks in the yellow and an occasioal red clip would be ok. In order to do that i really had to crank that up. I went from 0db to +10DB which leaves a...

    Here are a several threads to help those searching for the right sub-eq make an intelligent decision on what to buy... MiniDSP - Why not?? MiniDSP HOWTO Behringer FBQ2496 or DSP1124P FBQ 2496 vs DSP 1124P HELP PLS Is the SMS-1 the "iceing on the cake" SMS-1 or Behringer DCX2496...

    I bought the FBQ2496 as it is supposed to be better than the DSP1124P I noticed that the FBQ is lowering the entire output even if I have appled negative gain at one frequency. I verified this by sending the FBQ full range signal. Then I lowered the gain of just one filter at some 35hz. But the...

    Hi, I couldn't find any topic on tweaking the FBQ, as done with DEQ or DCX. Nor could I find internal diagrams for the FBQ. I suppose that AD/DA conversion in the FBQ must be rather similar to the DEQ's one, and wondered if it would not be possible to by-pass the analog input and output of the...

    Hello morning there. Okay I’ll cut straight the chase shall I? I have an RTA analyzer a basic model that has range from 25Hz 40Hz 63Hz 100Hz 160Hz 250Hz 500Hz 1 KHz 2 KHz 4 KHz 8 KHz 16 KHz. I’m using this with Behringer ECM8000 microphone and M100 preamplifier. Sub bass is an 18” JBL...

    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...

    Hi to all, When I use the BFD to EQ my two subs, do i EQ the sub independently, first left then right or do i EQ both subs at the same time. I feel it might be independently but i would like your ideas on this. I have 19ft X 12.5ft X 8ft room sealed, and the left sub always measurer's with...
