    Hi

    We have a problem with our Helix system controller. We have been trying so solve a problem with a fold back speaker and explored all aspects of the sound system. We noticed that the screen on the controller was showing gobbledygook and the unit was very warm. We turned it off but now there is clearly a fault and the screen flashes and there is a hi frequency clicking sound.

    Has any one had a similar experience? Has the power unit failed or is it something more sinister?

      Nigel67 Hi Birdt22. This could be a number of things, one of them being the switchmode power supply. These units are getting quite old now and there is a good chance that the electrolytic capacitors in the psu have dried out. You will need an electronic technician to open the unit and measure the psu voltages and then identify where the clicking is coming from - possibly being caused by a voltage being bad.

    I purchased this unit and want to use this as parametric eq. 

    There is no step by step guide I could find.

    Can some one guide me , how to use this unit as parametric eq.

    Nothing can be understood from the manual , rather there is no explaination on how to do this by a new user

    I have a Behringer fbq1000 feedback destroyer and I've been able to use it to successfully eliminate feedback but I noticed that sometimes on AC power, it makes noise when the filters are scanning my set frequencies for feedback and I end up not being able to use it.

    Please what could be the problem and what is the solution to this?

      PedroRodrigues Hi senunwah, thank you for your post, please consider that if your FBQ1000 has noise generated by the PSU that does not allow you to use the unit , the unit must be inspected to access what is causing this behavior, please follow the link below to submit an assistance request directly to our Service Department. https://community.musictribe.com/pages/create-new-ticket?type=service%20request&brand=Behringer Thank you

      • "Scanning Noise" BEHRINGER FBQ1000 FEEDBACK DESTROYER
        senunwah Hello PedroRodrigues, Thanks for the help. I figured out that the issue was DIGITAL DISTORTION caused by the inproper level settings. i was able to rectify the issue and it works fine and it actually cancels feedback. I love this device.

      DavidThomson1 Isn't that the noise the unit makes to "find" the feedback frequencies to eliminate them? while its scanning I wouldn't expect the unit to be usable until it finishes its scan.

      • "Scanning Noise" BEHRINGER FBQ1000 FEEDBACK DESTROYER
        PedroRodrigues Hi DavidThomson1, thank you for your help, I would also suspect that would be the case if senunwah was able to use the unit when the scan is finished but as he mentioned on the post that "I end up not being able to use it." so I can only cogitate what may be the cause being this issue and considering that he can't use the unit it needs to be inspected to access what is causing behind such issue that make the unit unusable. Thank you

    Hello,

    At our church we have a DSP1124P that does a phenomenal job at taking care of feedback through our monitors. I'd like to get another one to put on our main speakers, but until then we have a FBQ100 sitting around that I thought I'd hook a condenser mic into.

    I have it reset and everything is off except Active. In other words it's at the default settings. My problem is that it makes the mic sound worse. It seems to sound cut off/chopped off at the beginning and end of talking for lack of a better description. Almost like there's some heavy noise reduction going on. It just doesn't sound natural. We've tried it with other mics and get the same results.

    The condenser mic is a Behringer (whether that matters or not). It's plugged in via XLR with phantom power on and the input & output set to "mic."

    Is this the normal operation for this unit or is there a setting I need to mess with.

      Paul_Vannatto The "cut off/chopped off at the beginning and end of talking" is due to the noise gate not set correctly and the "heavy noise reduction" is due to the compressor not set correctly. See page 8 of the manual to set them appropriately.

    Hi guys,

    I have an FBQ2496 feedback suppressor which I had hoped would help me with a persistent feedback issue on my vocal mic. However, I can't figure out how to get the FBQ to work.

    The manual says that I should just turn it on, press the "Learn" button and then it will automatically scan for feedback and deploy filters. But that doesn't happen. When I press the "Panic" button, still nothing happens. I tried to "prime" the unit, and held down the "Learn" button and got a series of loud chirps, which did generate feedback, but the unit didn't actually press them seemingly at all.

    The unit is registering sound coming in, and the same sound is coming out to the mixer at the far end, but nothing else is happening.

    Help me out here - How do I get the FBQ to start actually detecting feedback?

    Hi, I wonder if anyone can help me with a few questions on the FBQ2496 Feedback Destroyer? It's really not clear in the user guide

    Firstly, if you're running and playing in LEARN mode, as you go along and rogue frequencies occur and get notched out. Does the creation of a lot of filters have an effect on the output volume/signal from the device? So if it loads all 20 slots, does that mean it's sucked out a lot of the FOH volume?

    Secondly, is it possible to set the level of attenuation/cut that a created filter applies? The manual kind of hints at that in PEQ mode, but it isn't clear and I haven't been able to do it.

    I just bought and installed a Behringer Feedback Destroyer FBQ1000 in my home Rehearsal Studio.

    We had Feedback issues becaus eit's a small room; I set it for AUTO to control Feedback and it truly works!

    BUT NOW; I notice; sometimes after playing 15 minutes; it seemes to mess the with EQ; and all of a sudden there is MINIMAL BASS and LOW END on our mix?

    I am not super Techno Savvyl but I know in my setting; under Filter; it syas "AUTO"

    Is there a way I can "Turn Off" the Parametric EQ Filter (from AUTO) and still have this device eliminate Feedback?

    Let me know any suggestions and thnaks!

      NicJonesMT Hi Davesaul20.
      I've not heard of this happening before if I'm honest.
      You could try setting the Filters to Parametric mode. This will then allow you to manually adjust Specific frequencies on this.

      There is a break down of what the filter modes do on page 8 of the user manual.

      https://mediadl.musictribe.com/media/sys_master/h31/h41/8850211242014.pdf

      If you manually adjust the Filters and still have the same issue could you please submit a technical support ticket by clicking the Support button at the top of the page.

      senunwah Hi Dave, are you passing your mains through the feedback destroyer or just the vocals, it's best to pass just vocals so it doesn't filter out major frequencies your whole mix.

    Hi has anyone tested a dm8000 with a barco clickshare cx50?

    • peterashley
      PedroRodrigues Hi Peter, please be aware that we advise the implementation of the DM8000 must be done via the physical connections available on the unit. Effectively we have never tested the unit with that wireless solution but we do not advise any other implementation other than the one present on the manual for this unit. Thank you

    Music with high dynamic range is causing Fbq1000 to generate filters without feedback. Same music through an ultracurve does not trigger filters only feedback does. Is the Fbq1000 faulty. Its 1 year old but hasn't been used because of covid. Have done a factory reset.

    What is the best feedback destroyer. FBQ2496 or DEQ2496? Or is there another in the same price range which is better?

    Kind Regards
    Stiga

      Paul_Vannatto I believe the feedback engine is identical in both models. But the DEQ2496 has a lot more features (RTA, etc.). I used the DEQ2496 for a number of years when I had my analog setup, before I got my X32Rack.

      Stiga Thanks Paul. Yes, I can see that I get a lot more in DEQ2496.
