I just got this feedback suppressor with the intention of using it on the monitors, and possibly on the mains if it didn't degrade the sound. I can't seem to make it work even after reading the manual 4 times. When I push the learn button and increase the volume on the mixer until feedback starts, the unit does not pick it up and notch that frequency. When I activate the autolearn feature the pa starts clicking then feeding back until my qsc amps start to clip and shut down. The FBQ2496 says it has no single shot filters and I can't figure out how to set the number manually. By omission the manual seems to say that the filters will be set automatically during the learn phase, but maybe this is my problem. I can figure out how to set the number of PEQ filters, but that would mean manually ringing out the system which is what I do now. Thanks in advance for your help. This is a great forum
Mark....Just doing a quick read of the 2496 manual to compare it to the older FBX1100's I've used. I'll be back with more as soon as I've read up.Edit:OK. After a quick read I'll say this:Automatic "problem solving" continues to be a myth. The best way to use devices such as this is to regard them as "automatic parametric EQ". It will work best for you if you "ring out" your monitors manually and lock the filters down to avoid "program eating" common to such devices. BUT.......Ringing out the monitors is still best done with everything in place. You can do a general setting with an empty stage and then tweak it as required.The whole "learn" thing is similar to other auto-EQ programs and IMO is just not a workable design.As to the filters not setting, I'd suspect something is bypassed or a gross aberration in the gain structure. More likely the bypass........ If not, then take it back and trade it in for the FBwhatever1000. A simpler and more workable model.
How do you have it hooked up in your system-ie what is the signal path? Is there a bypass mode?
Thanks Dick. I wish I would have known this before I bought it. I asked a couple of people who said they have experience with them and they said they work as long as you don't let it eat up too many frequencies. I still think I am doing something wrong as it is not eliminating any frequencies even with severe feedback. I bought the top of the line hoping it would be the best. thanks again
