When a specific frequency, or range of frequencies, reaches too high a level, feedback occurs - that all too familiar squeal or howl you get when the mic is too close to the speaker. Basically, feedback happens when there is so much of a particular frequency that it is picked up by the mic and run through the system again. That's why feedback typically gets louder and louder the longer it's allowed to occur. Needless to say, this kind of feedback is very undesirable.
This is where the FBQ800's feedback detection system really works its magic. In this ingenious circuitry, LEDs on the individual faders light up when that frequency band is approaching the danger zone. All you need to do is lower the illuminated slider until the LED blinks out - and there you have it, feedback problem solved!
With its 9 frequency bands, you easily fine tune your sound and instantly eliminate feedback. And each fader can be used to boost or cut the frequency range it controls by as much as 12dB (and that's a lot!).
Special attention is paid to the low frequency zone. In addition to low frequency faders, the FBQ800 features a Low Cut filter for removing unwanted low frequencies such as floor rumble, room resonance, electrical hum, etc. This is especially handy if your system is being used for speech rather than music.
Raising and lowering specific frequency bands can improve the frequency response of any room's acoustics. For instance, if the room you're in is "bass heavy", lowering the 63Hz and 125Hz faders can help eliminate an overall "boomy" or "muddy" sound. Likewise, gently boosting the 8KHz and 16KHz sliders can add sparkle to a somewhat "dark" or "dull" mix. Are the vocals getting lost in the mix? Raising the level of the 1KHz slider can help bring them out.
Speaking of headroom, FBQ800's 6 digit LED I/O meters and level control are provided for precise level maintenance. Long term reliability is ensured, thanks to high quality illuminated faders and switches, and our ultra low noise audio operational amplifiers provide outstanding sonic performance. In addition, all Mini Series components can be stacked to create an ultra compact signal processing solution.
