This is the second Behringer FBQ3102 I own. Purchased the first one at least 8 years ago and it has performed flawlessly. I have one Yamaha top rated EQ and it is noisy with switching modes. The FBQ3102 is quiet, has a handy sub woofer output, has LED lights on each slider that will show you which frequencies are hot or causing the feedback. Great product for a fair price.
This is the best EQ I have ever used. I'm running two double 15"s with a single 18" kilomax in an open loud box and one peavey 800 amp. With this EQ, I can fill any size room and the bass is incredible. You would think I'm running bass bends, proccessors and multiple amps, and the sound is so clean you would be surprised. This is the only EQ you need, and for the price. It's a steal.
Before I bought this EQ I used a lot of different EQ settings from within my program. Which was ok, but after a while I noticed that I wasn't getting the correct sound for which I was looking for. So when I bought this EQ I finally got every EQ right. I hooked it up to the audio signal path in as well as puchasing another one for the audio coming out from the mixer. The one with the signal path running in. I mostly use it for when I use my keyboard, in order to the the right recording saving time before hand tweaking it continously within my program. Saving me CPU processing. And as for the other one when ever clients come in my studio wanting to get there tracks EQed I use the other one with the signal running out from the mixer to show them a pre-example of how their music will sound. So if you ask me, when it comes to getting the right EQ buy this behringer 31 band EQ and see how satisfied you will be.
My PA's overall sound greatly improved with this EQ. Very easy to use right out of the box. Feedback feature works well and the sub out with x-over is well appreciated. This product needs to be ventilated well.
I impulse purchased a Behringer FBQ3102 EQ at GC a few months back, and then stuffed it in my equipment rack for my home theater. Don't know how I lived without it. I'm feeding my mains through it, and after an evening of judicious tweakage, my "entry level" $300 home theater main speaks sound darn near as nice as my (considerably more expensive) magneplanars in my living room. I used the subwoofer out to route to a Crown XLS402 (also from GC) for a pair of subwoofers which are now under the mains - I can play louder now without worrying about destroying the mains - Gunshots sound like gunshots, and Miles sounds like Miles... My only gripes with it are the silver faceplate - The seventies were a LONG time ago... and it'd be nice to be able to turn off the lights without turning off the EQ... I'm also thinking that the "third order" crossover for the EQ may be a bit of wishful thinking... I had it dialed to approx 100hz, and with the mains amp off had vocals coming from the subs... So it's dialed down a little further now. It's still a darn nice feature tho, with both adjustable highpass and lowpass for the sub output.
This unit is the same as the 15 band version except that it has a 31 band EQ giving the user even more control and flexibility. The Ultragraph has an feedback locating system, which helps the user boost, the volume to the maximum level without getting harsh distortion. Just boost the signal until the unit picks up a feedback warning, then adjust the EQ to eliminate it so that you can turn the volume level up even higher. Just like the 15 band unit this one also has the very useful subwoofer outlet with an adjustable crossover frequency so that you can get more punch from your system. This unit can make a PA system go from sounding cheap to sounding like a much more expensive system. The unit is constructed well and if treated properly is should provide years of reliable use.
Don't let Behringers cheap prices fool you. This stuff is designed very well and will last a long time if it is rack-mounted and not mistreated. I use one channel for bass drum and the other for toms(my drummer runs a 4-channel behringer mixer for his toms and sends it to the house mix). This bad boy gives you 31 flavors to cut and boost at either +-6 or 12 db. That is a great option you don't see too much. I haven't used the feedback analyzer, but only because I haven't had to. It comes with a beginners guide to eq frequencies that actually helped me clean up my house sound. Great buy if you have the room in your rack, if not you can get the cheaper 15 band that sounds almost as good.
