Hello,

I recently purchased the BFD to use as a full range EQ, not just for my sub. Question is, is it okay for the unit to show clipping when not in bypass mode? If I look at the input level, the meters go to just below the yellow on most music. If I run the BFD with filters, it tends to light the clipping LED's a lot. My understanding is, that as long as it doesn't clip on the input level, this is okay. Is this correct? I know this isn't the most desirable way to run this, but I need this for my mains, and I have no pre-amp out besides the sub. Therefore, this is the only way to connect it. Any ideas? I've heard that you guys are the pros. Show me the way...

Thanks,

Slappy

No, clipping is not good. This is the reason you should not use any gain filters - only cut.
