Product Highlights
  • Ultra-Fast 24-bit/96kHz Operation
  • Intelligently Locates & Stops Feedback
  • Easy to Setup and Use
  • Balanced, Gold-Plated Outputs

The Feedback Destroyer Pro FBQ2496 from Behringer is a Feedback Suppressor that uses an ultra-fast feedback detection algorithm. The unit automatically and "intelligently" locates up to twenty feedback frequencies per channel and sets extremely narrow notch filters to attenuate them, leaving the remainder of the program material virtually untouched.

A "Set-and-Forget" default setting plus the Panic button, allows the FBQ2496 to be set up and running in no time. The auto mode continuously monitors the mix, resetting programmed filters automatically, while the manual mode allows individual setting of up to forty fully parametric filters with frequency, bandwidth and gain adjustment.

Open MIDI architecture provides for future software updates and flexible communication with other digital devices. With the unit's various modes, mastering just about any live sound situation is effortless, while the option to use it as a creative sound-shaping tool is always available.

          I do live sound reinforcement for a workshop gathering of about 50-60 people. We were having chronic feedback problems and we just put this into service and it performed beautifully this one time. I can't say anything about how it will work in the long-term, but out of the box, it was easy to use and do exactly what we needed, which was eliminate feedback.

            After much trial and error in keeping our monitors from feeding back for 5 vocalists, we turned to the Feedback Destroyer Pro to alleviate the problem. Good news! It worked out of the box. In different venues, and at different volumes. Thanks to B&H for their great service and pricing.

            Comments about Behringer Feedback Destroyer Pro FBQ2496 - Feedback Eliminator/Parametric EQ:

            the FBQ2496 has simple to use features that work well. It's flexible operation is accurate for most situations. It only does feedback extermination, so it's most useful in combination with other signal processing equipment for sound reinforcement. It's price point makes it affordable enough to have as a "safety" for performances in a chaotic situation, or difficult acoustic space or when where there is no opportunity to calibrate the system. Its not built like a tank, but at this price it can be replaced without breaking the bank. Even when the system has been calibrated for the room, I find I'll just bring up all the microphones until feedback occurs and let the FBQ2496 take care of reducing the specific feedback prone frequencies. Its also an easy way to EQ the stage monitors.

              Comments about Behringer Feedback Destroyer Pro FBQ2496 - Feedback Eliminator/Parametric EQ:

              This unit is installed in the sound system for a 400 seat church sanctuary.

              It gives significantly greater headroom before feedback.

              The documentation is not very explicit, but the automated basic setup as a feedback supression device is easy enough and only takes a couple of minutes.

              If one follows the manual instructions for the automated setup, it is possible to damage amplifiers, speakers and you hearing.

              The automated "learn" process creates a series of pulses while increasing the gain of the system until feedback occurs. Be sure that this does not result in overload to the input of the Feedback Destroyer.

              Using a compressor/limiter upstream of this device during setup and normal use can help to control input signal levels, and does not seem to affect its automated setup or the system performance.

                  Comments about Behringer Feedback Destroyer Pro FBQ2496 - Feedback Eliminator/Parametric EQ:

                  This thing is a lifesaver if you're thrown in to an environment where you need an extra set of ears/hands to kill feedback. Just used it in a really lively, less than ideal space in monitor mix. It squashed all the feedback very efficiently. Response time was quite good. My only gripe is that the channel filter LEDs don't really tell you very much. Does exactly what is it supposed to do. Great for monitor mixes, but sound seems transparent enough to use for mains as a safety net. Like flexibility of 'priming' filters, on the fly auto-filters, and manual parametric. It's like having a second engineer at your side. Seems well built...but only used on one gig so far. Well worth the $$.

                    Using this unit in a small chapel with 3 mics. We are pretty much stuck with the speaker / microphone placement, and were struggling to get enough volume out of our mics without getting feedback. This unit took care of that problem 100% and as a bonus, killed off a minor 60hz hum we had with a narrow band peq. Giving it 4 stars becase it's not terribly intuitive to use and the manual could be more helpful. Otherwise very happy.

                        We used the Feed Back Destroyer With Our PA system & a wireless Mic. it was easy to setup and unlike other events where we had a problem with feedback in the system we had none thistime. A+
