Hi Don,

With the FBQ connected to your mixer’s sub out, you won’t be able to do both sub EQ and feedback eliminating (at least, none above the crossover frequency). To do both, you would have to connect the EQ in front of your crossover. Naturally, any 30-90 Hz boost you do with it connected like that will affect the main speakers as well as the subs.

Another option, if your mixer has an insert for the mic channel, you could patch one channel of the FBQ there, and use the other channel for the sub out, as you have done now.

Also, when you say you want to boost between 30-90 Hz, that’s pretty much the full range of the sub, isn’t it? Why not just turn the sub up?

Regards,
Wayne

Is it possible to use 1 filter for peq set to 80 hz and use the other filters for single shot or auto filter.
The FBQ is a bit different than the BFD most of us use, but it should be possible - if you connect the FBQ in front of the driverack. The manual can give you further instructions on how and if you can use parametric and feedback controls simultaneously.

Doesn’t the driverack have parametric equalizing? You could use that to take care of your feedback problem w/o inserting another processor in your main-channel signal chain.

When i turn down the bass on the mic channel down, the mic sounds thinny,
Well, I see people using too much bass in vocal mics all the time.

It should be considered: What is the ultimate goal of a sound system? Ideally, it should sound natural, only louder, should it not? After all, that’s what “high fidelity” means. Keeping that in mind, what does your voice sound like without amplification, vs. with the mic through system? Without amplification, I doubt your voice has a boomy, resonating bottom end. So amplified, it shouldn’t either! So yes, your voice probably should sound a bit “thin” through the PA system, because that’s the way it sounds without the system.

Of course, some people think it sounds better with excessive bass, so if that’s what floats your boat...

Wayne
