24-bit/96kHz feedback suppression with 40 parametric filters.

The FBQ2496 is an incredibly fast feedback suppressor because it uses a speedy feedback detection algorithm that automatically and intelligently locates up to 20 feedback frequencies per channel. It then sets an extremely narrow notch filter to eliminate them, leaving the remainder of the signal virtually untouched.

The auto mode continuously monitors the mix, resetting programmed filters automatically, while the manual mode allows individual settings of up to 40 fully parametric filters with frequency, bandwidth, and gain adjustment. With its various modes you can master just about any live sound situation, or use the Feedback Destroyer Pro as a creative sound-shaping tool.

Behringer FBQ2496 Feedback Destroyer Pro Feedback Suppressor/Parametric EQ Features:

  • Automatically and intelligently locates and destroys up to 20 frequencies per channel
    Ultrafast feedback detection (>0.2 sec) due to proprietary FFT signal analysis
    Ultra-narrow notch-filters (up to 1/60th octave) for very effective feedback suppression, while keeping highest sonic quality

  • Used for Church Sound System

    As reviewed by Paul on 4/7/2011

    I was worried by reading on internet before I bought. Revews said hard to operate, and some said cheaply built. I found the unit to be FABULOUS. At first did not seem to work real well until I increased gain of mixer from where signal was originating. It needs a good strong input. Found easy to use in learn mode, or manually programing parametric filters. Remembers all settings on power off from plug strip. Can separate channel one and two and reset them and edit them totally separately. Got good feedback suppression on church monitor speakers witin hours of first hooking up. Played around setting filters manually for fine tuning. Volume is significantly louder with no feedback.

  • It works!

    As reviewed by Scott on 12/31/2009

    I bought this to control feedback in the small rehearsal room my friends and I use to get together and play about once a week. Out of the box, the Behringer did NOTHING to help. The english manual is kind of sketchy and the unit did not perform as the manual stated. HOWEVER - one email to Tech support and they taught me how to erase presets that come out of the factory which prevent the unit from acting like a feedback surpressor. (All parametrics were configured) From that moment on, the unit behaved just as the manual states and works BEAUTIFULLY. The manual is NOT complete, but Tech support is excellent. The only problem I had with that is that you have to wait for the reply from (Germany?) which took about 3 days in my case.

  • Very Cheap construction

    As reviewed by JangaFett on 8/16/2010

    It does work for my 1000 sq. ft practice space. If I had to do it again though I would have just purchased another E.Q. for my floor monitors. The Product does not come packaged very well(loose). Also the power button goes in too far and you have to play with it to get it out. I find that with all Behringer products that while they are good ideas and are engineered in Germany, they are Implemented and packaged in China.(very cheap)
