    Can someone explain to me about the beringer feedback destroyer ?

    I was looking into using it with my sub woofer to give a flat frequency response.

    I remember reading a comprehensive artice here about these units, can anyone help ?

    cheers

    I was going to buy one myself but in then end did´nt bother as the sub response without one was pretty good. From what I gather you can trim out the peaks of the frequency response but can´t boost a dip (null). You´ll probably get more info out of forum member Ramius with regards to the pro´s & cons of having one.:)

    Thanks for the reply jase, i must have too much spare time !

    Just looked back at the subwoofer measurements thread that started it all off,

    http://www.avforums.com/forums/showthread.php?s=&threadid=33958&highlight=subwoofer+measurements



    i posted various graphs there. Your help was very much apreciated. In the end i just stopped measuring,left the sub where it was.

    But now i have new frount and center speakers, and some spare cash , i was thinking...'maybe i can get it to sound even better ? '

    or maybe i should find something else to do !?

    could you take a look at the old thread jase and take a look at my graphs, Sub is still at top left of living room behind tv, and see if the feedback destroyer would benefit me ?

    cheers

    I´ve had a look and you´d be able to trim the response to some extent. I´d also consider adding a second sub to even out the bass response, put the money into that instead. Worth thinking about anyway.

    Also, it depends how it all sounds in the first place, playing about with the positioning etc could give you better results than the feedback destroyer pro. Who´s to say you´ll like the sound of a sub with a flat frequency response?? you might not!!:eek: :)

    Hi jase, thanks again for the reply...

    Maybe i am reading too much into this subject.

    At the moment i think my setup sounds great, but was concerned about a flat frequency response.

    Maybe i shouldn't mess !


    cheers

    Destroyer seems to work well, just bare in mind there is a processing delay. They are cheap however, especially when you consider what is in them.

    Thanks for that link Gary, from what i read when i scanned through the numerous posts:

    It seems very complicated to set up.

    Even when setup to give a flat response, sound isnt that good ?

    I still am interested in getting one , but i probably need to hear one set up first, or get someone to set it up for me.

    Other wise i will probably stick with what ive got !

    Cheers
