    Hi all,

    You can imagine my horror when I sat down to watch Matrix reloaded and I started to hear speaker distortion with even the slightest hint of bass. Anyway at 1st I thought the soundtrack was too load for my rear speakers so I turned the amp down a bit but still distortion :eek: Finally I checked the sub and found the problem - a magazine had fallen in front of the driver and some pages were vibrating around like crazy :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl:

    I've had a similar experience with a plastic bag (with biscuits in) in front of my subs. :)

    Behringer Feedback Destroyer. That question gets answered quite a bit in the sub's forum.

    as john says its a behringer feedback destroyer, it is a high qulaity parametric equaliser which allows you to take out the specific frequency which causes resonance with the object that's bugging you. Example - I found that at certain moments my front door rattles, using test tones you can isolate this to a specific frequency and then use the BFD to reduce output at only that frequency, leaving everything else untouched, rattle gone.

    The other big use for them is getting a flatter frequency response from your sub, to even out the natural peaks and troughs caused by the shape of your room and the stuff in it.

    They cost about £90.
