Question: with REW and the midi connection I have set the BFD L & R channels independently, but used preset 2 for both L & R , but after doing that I can only get the L or R engine button to light up not both , I can see the corresponding filter lights for each channel ,3 filters for sub 1- left channel and 2 filters for sub 2- right channel and the lights for clipping L & R bouncing up and down soooo do both L & R engine lights + preset 2 need to be on for the EQ to work for both channels or just the R or L engine light + preset 2 ? , if both engine lights need to be on how do I go about doing that with out coupling/ keeping L & R channel filters separated , I hope I explained this clear enough

if both engine lights need to be on
The engine light being on or off only shows which engine will be accepting a filter if you enter it manually. If both lights are on, then if you enter a filter it will go to both channels. It has nothing to do with which channel is active, since both channels are always active, no matter what.......

Me again, one more question on the BFD , If I`m listening to music at lower volumes then I usual do (40db - 50db ) should I put the BFD in bypass mode ?, the reason I`m asking is on the BFD manual it says a low signal will be degraded and sins I have the BFD level set for when I`m listening at reference levels ( 75db - 85db ) I`m guessing I should , what do you all think or do in this situation ? Thanks in advance for any input

No, don't bypass it. That warning isn't for regular use and listening. It's for a scenario whereby the unit was starved for a signal and everything else in the system would have to be turned up to compensate. In that case, the BFD would introduce noise into the system - as would any analog component in the same situation.

Regards,
Wayne
