Excerpt: I am using the FBQ3102 to equalizer the overall PA sound at my church. First I analyze the audio output of the speakers with a DEQ2496 and then transfer the equalizer settings to this unit. I really like the 6db and 12 db settings as it allows more finite control for each frequency range when changes greater than 6db are not needed. Overall a decent unit performing as needed.
Pros: Clear Sound, Easy To Use, Good value, Lightweight
Excerpt: For the price it's hard to complain, but there is definitely a noise problem coming from my 3102. I use it in my home studio for fine tuning my monitors and using the crossover. The room is dead silent until the 3102 is turned on, and while the buzz isn't too unbearable it is more than I can tolerate for a recording studio. I have since removed the monitors from the EQ and have them bypass the 3102 completely, eliminating their noise.
Excerpt: I bought this eq for my karaoke system, and thought it so great but then I exchange it for a higher price one thinking it would be better but boy was I'm wrong. Just return the twices it cost and re order this and could not be more happier.
Excerpt: Certainly does what it's supposed to do in shaping your sound. I find that you cannot increase the output level too much before a noticeable coloration in the sound, and a faint buzz. I've owned 2 before, and they seem to have a little limited life. They had seemed pretty warm in my rack (I had 2 on top of each other), so maybe had overheated, but I started getting a louder buzz in one, and then about 1 year later, got the same kind of buzz in the other.
Excerpt: Works great, I have no use for the base out but its nice to have as well. I have a projector and use the stereo speakers in it as well as the surround system. and it can not handle the base the system can. not to mention depending on what is playing the "dj" at the time may wish to adjust the sound profile. this eq gives great controll. I do not use it as a rack mounted unit and insted it is free standing[...] lol.
Pros: Clear Sound, Easy To Use, Lightweight, Versatile
