DEQ2496 MANUAL PDF

Hung up on DIY hi-fi? Then welcome to Using the Behringer DEQ in a hi-fi system including the correct connections to your hi-fi. Decibel Dungeon Introduction The Behringer DEQ has been around for a few years now and although primarily aimed at the PA market, it has found its way in to quite a few hi-fi systems. Whether it has a place in a high-end system is a matter of opinion, and a search around various hi-fi forums may leave the reader a little confused with the arguments for and against the DE So I will state my position with regard to it and you can take it for what it is worth.

Hung up on DIY hi-fi? Then welcome to Using the Behringer DEQ in a hi-fi system including the correct connections to your hi-fi. Decibel Dungeon Introduction The Behringer DEQ has been around for a few years now and although primarily aimed at the PA market, it has found its way in to quite a few hi-fi systems. Whether it has a place in a high-end system is a matter of opinion, and a search around various hi-fi forums may leave the reader a little confused with the arguments for and against the DE So I will state my position with regard to it and you can take it for what it is worth.

I believe that it is a very worthwhile addition to a hi-fi system, and that it can make a serious improvement if used properly. Much will depend on how much your room affects the sound of your hi-fi of course. By properly I mean that the DEQ must be connected into the hi-fi system in the correct manner, and that means between a digital source and an external DAC. Passing a digital signal into, and out of the DEQ is the only way that I will recommend its use in a hi-fi system.

Second, the DEQ should make that must be used in dual-mono mode rather than stereo. If you use stereo mode to correct the whole frequency range, the sound will be less clear, less transparent. Because the correction for each channel will be compromised unless you have a perfectly symmetrical room including the furnishings, windows, and doors etc.

Lastly, the correct cables must be used to connect it to the hi-fi system, and I will give details of them in this article. But to start at the very beginning as DD is aimed at complete novices , what is the DEQ and what does it do? In fact, it can do so many things that it is almost impossible to list them all even in the DEQ manual but the purpose that we are most interested in as audiophiles, is its ability to tailor individual frequencies, rather like those graphic equalizers that you have probably seen.

For instance, the room that you are listening in will boost certain frequencies and cut others. This is what causes that bass boominess that a lot of systems suffer from. I originally used the DEQ just to deal with the bass response of my speakers, and only used it up to hz but it is arguably better used at higher frequencies.

If it tried to, your poor amp would have to work too hard, and your drivers would try to do things that they were never designed too. EQ is short for equalise. What we are attempting to do is to boost the frequencies that are too low, and attenuate the frequencies that are too high. In practice, it is much quicker to do, than to read about. By the way, I must thank Thorsten Loesch for his notes on setting up and using the DEQ that this tutorial is largely based on.

Setting up the DEQ OK, so you have taken the plunge and bought yourself a DEQ But what the hell do you do with it now? Look at all those buttons and knobs, never mind all the sockets on the rear panel. First off you will need the correct cables to connect it into your hi-fi system. The other end of the cable will be attached to an XLR plug, the copper braid going to pin 1 of the XLR plug, and the centre conductor going to pin 2.

You must then solder a r resistor between the copper braid and pin 1. The resistor should be a non-magnetic type for best results! You will need 50 ohm cable, and a very short length of 75 ohm cable. Use 50 ohm cable with the smallest diameter you can find because you have to get two lengths of it into a single XLR flying socket. I shaved some insulation of one side of each length so that they would more easily fit into the XLR socket. Then you need a small box and some suitable cable glands , I used plastic but you could use a metal one if you wish.

The two lengths of 50 ohm coaxial cable go into the box through appropriately sized cable glands. Inside the box, the two centre conductors are joined by a ohm non-magnetic resistor.

Each end of that resistor is then attached to another ohm non-magnetic resistor, and the other ends of the pair of ohm resistors are joined by a single 91 ohm non-magnetic resistor. It actually sounds a lot more complicated than it is and the diagram below should make things a lot clearer. The short length of 75 ohm coaxial cable is then attached as shown in the diagram, again inside the small box and passing out through a cable gland. The 75 ohm cable must be as short as possible but not so short that it is difficult to plug into your DAC.

These cables are not too difficult to make up if you can handle a soldering iron. In fact the hardest job may well be getting hold of the non-magnetic resistors. I had to order mine from Germany! Some users do prefer it citing that it prevents any electrical ground loops, but in practice, I prefer the electrical SPDIF connection, and have never had any problems with hum.

The measuring mic. OK, so now you have got the DEQ in your system and connected up between your source and your DAC and you could start playing with it.

But rather than rely on your ears to make any corrections, it is far better to use the technology packed into the DEQ to make most of the adjustments automatically. Make sure that you have a long enough cable to place the mic at the spot where you normally listen to the music. You are or should be ready to use the DEQ for some serious adjustments" Preliminaries.

OK before we get stuck into the interesting bit there are a few things to do that will make doing the interesting things easier. In theory the music should sound best when every frequency is reproduced a the same loudness. In other words, if we measured each frequency and drew a graph of the results, we would have straight line.

What we do instead is set a target curve as opposed to a target straight line and ask the DEQ to equalise each frequency to the target set on the curve. The DEQ fortunately has a display as shown below.

OK, if you are thinking that every frequency is set to 0db and that means no sound, that is not correct. In this context db means that the incoming signal will not be amplified or attenuated in other words it is the same db decibels it comes in as with nothing added or taken away so it is unaltered.

Now look at the next display. Equalising the frequency response to something like this curve will sound much more to our liking even though we will still tweak the response afterwards. So the first job that we will do is to set up the curve as a preset so that we can use it in the future without the need to set all the individual frequencies each time that we want to EQ the system.

So here are the settings that you will need to enter. This clears any previous pre-settings and sort of gives us a blank canvas to work on. Now press the GEQ button and you should see the following display. This is what we want to change to the target curve. If you turn the small round knob shown by the red arrow above you will notice that the little arrow on the top of the display moves horizontally over each frequency setting.

Turn the knob so that the little arrow is over the setting market 20 hz. Move the little arrow to the next frequency by turning the small knob clockwise. It should now be over the setting marked 25 hz. And continue along the line until you have entered all the settings below.

Frequency hz.
