    I have read quite a bit about people using a BFD to get a flat(ter) frequency response curve from their subs, I was wondering whether it was possible to use these things on normal stereo speakers as well, does anyone have any experience of this?

    Hi Owain,

    I'm sure you can as it works in ranges 0f 20hz -20khz but i would think that you would probably be better off with a graphic equalizer for that.
    As the Higher frequncies are not as bad as the low long waves that you get with subs.

    The BFD would need to be connected before the amp as the inputs are designed for line level and an amped signal would blow the inputs! This is not too bad if you have a separate amp from preamp as the BFD can sit between them, but if you have an integrated amp you would need a BFD for each source.
