    I own both a Feedback Destroyer 1100 and 1124 and i can not get the software editor to work on windows 10. Is there any advice to get it working?

      AlexLane These are fairly older legacy products, so probably have not been updated for windows 10. Tricky one to support, but have you tried running in compatibility mode maybe?

        AlexLane Hi there, as far as I'm aware there is no software editor for the FX2000 I'm afraid!

        TheMoroney That's ridiculous. such an advanced unit like this should have a editor that allows fine control over the different parameters. Is there a way to request that one be made?

    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.

    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.

    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

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

      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

    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.

      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.

      Thanks!!!!!!! Is there any way way I can speak to you or a person there for 3 minutes? Dave 516-987-5001

      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.

    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.

    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.

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

    Kind Regards

      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.

    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?
