The FBQ2496 Feedback Destroyer PRO is the fastest feedback suppressor on the market (less than 0.2 seconds) and the only one to offer a 96 kHz sampling rate. This rack-mountable audio solution is the quick, easy way to protect yourself and your audience from feedback.

One Smart Solution

Using an ultra-fast feedback detection algorithm, the FBQ2496 automatically and "intelligently" locates up to 20 feedback frequencies per channel. The algorithm then sets extremely narrow notch filters (up to 1/60th of an octave) to "destroy" feedback frequencies, leaving the remainder of your signal virtually untouched. And with the "Set-and-forget" default setting, plus the Panic button, your FEEDBACK DESTROYER can be up and running in a matter of seconds.

Ease of Operation

The Auto Mode continuously monitors the mix, resetting programmed filters automatically, while the Manual Mode allows individual programming of up to 40 fully-parametric filters with frequency, bandwidth and gain adjustment. Open MIDI architecture makes future firmware updates and flexible communication with digital equipment exceedingly simple.

Be Prepared

With the FBQ2496's various modes, you can master just about any live sound situation or use the unit as a creative sound-shaping tool. A single FBQ2496 can protect you from feedback in both your mono PA mains and a monitor mix. And the FBQ2496 is more than just handy - it's affordable! Check one out today at your nearest BEHRINGER dealer. Your ears and your audience will thank you.

I have mixed feelings about this product, but the bottom line is that I feel it is a good value.

Some reviews mention build quality. I would say the build quality is very good. The only cheap looking part is the knob (as mentioned in another review) which for some reason is not completely round. Other than that, it looks like a solid, well-built unit.

For some reason, Behringer has gone out of its way to make this product confusing, The most confusing thing about it is that out of the box, all of the filters are set to PEQ, which means there are no single shot or automatic filters available at all. This might be the reason why some reviewers (here and elsewhere) have complained that the unit does not stop feedback, because it won't! So, the very first thing you need to do it press and hold PEQ, turn the knob so the display shows P0, and then press PEQ again. Now you can press Learn (or press and hold it) and it will search and destroy feedback as advertised.

I also discovered a hidden feature, which is that an automatic filter can be turned into a single shot one. But first, again, Behringer chooses terminology that makes a simple concept hard to grasp. Assuming you have set the number of PEQ filters to zero, you start out with 20 filters (assuming you are in stereo mode) left for the unit to use to deal with feedback. If a filter is set while Learn is pressed, this increases the single shot (S) count. So, let's say that by either pressing and holding Learn, or just clicking it and allowing feedback to occur by normal means, you end up with four slots set. You now press Learn again (so its LED is off) and "run" shows.

I bought this to use as a parametric EQ, not for feedback elimination. Although I did attempt to use it for feedback just to see what it did, I'm only rating it as an EQ. For feedback I didn't have a lot of luck with it's auto setup in my quick experimentation.

As an EQ it seems to work well. Although I prefer lots of knobs over lots of buttons and one knob, once you get used to it you can cruise through setting and tweak filters pretty easily. My main goal was to eliminate some low frequency boom and room resonances on some live sound monitor speakers. I also tried (successfully) using it with the free REW (room eq wizard) software. Very slick. Run a frequency sweep, look at a graphic of the room response, have the software generate filters to improve system response, have the predicted corrections shown graphically ...then have the PC download the filter settings over MIDI to the EQ automatically ...then re-sweep the room and see the improvements. Nifty.

My one complaint is that when the unit was shipped to me, there appeared to be bogus frequency settings in the unit. When I first tried to update one of the parametric filters, I lost the output from the unit. Cycling power did not help. I got sound in bypass mode, but not when the filter chain was active. I found that if I went to a filter and adjusted the gain before adjusting the frequency the unit would cut out. If I adjusted the frequency, then gain, all was well. The only way to get output after it was lost was to either disable the offending filter (gain=0) or adjust the frequency of that filter (and cycle power). What I determined was that the initial frequency values stored in the unit were crashing the DSP when the gain was adjusted and no update had been made to the default frequency.

This unit works amazingly fast to squash feedback as soon as it happens, Im not sure what other reviews are saying when they say this is hard to set up? I found it very easy, simply hook it up and plug it in and it starts to work that fast.I am using this to gain more headroom for a weak lead singer in our band and it works wonders, Leave it in the auto mode and forget it, it does the rest ! This is well worth the money and every bit as good as the DBX costing double the price..If you have feedback issues and or want to ring out the room your playing with ease just buy it!

I use it for karaoke and gives very good results.
the singer stands in front of the speakers and almost no feedbak
Parametric mode I've used little but gives good results.

So, if you're looking for the type of feedback suppression you find in the DriveRack PA, you ain't gonna find it here.

What this box excels at is feedback suppression on a individual *stationary* microphone. It makes a good insert for a single channel. It is too slow to be useful on a wireless or headset mic (unlike the DriveRack, which often suppresses feedback almost before I know it's happened) but it is good if you can 'ring out' the room. It probably adds about 15-20db of headroom to a stationary mic. It will sometimes false on things like guitar notes that could be mistaken for feedback, but it does have a switchable threshold (via the 'voice' button) to make it suitable for spoken word or music. Also, and they won't tell you this in the manual - the factory shipping configuration is *completely useless*. It's set to 20 preset filters, all set flat. You need to dial it up to have single-shot or floating filters instead or it will do nothing useful at all.

Behringer, please try again. You're getting closer every time, and I promise I will buy and try your next box. This box is a great improvement on the last one. It's just still not quite to what I want from a feedback cancelling appliance.
