Hi there,

I want to buy an hpf this week but am torn between the two. I have also looked at the Behringer DCX2496. I am looking for some advice. Would the DCX2496 replace my current BFD so that I can just use one device. It is more expensive than the two others mentioned but is it worth the extra and save me with cabling.

Also I need a hpf set at 12hz with a 4th order. I have two FI Q18 slot ported subs tuned to 13.5hz in 311 litres enclosures each. I want to run to REW sweeps to see what I can get out of them and my current setup exceeds max excurson at 11.5hz at full power. So I want to get a hpf just to protect them for this reason. Also to be able to play bassotronics at reference if I choose.

cheers

Graham

The mic2200 won't do anything below 20Hz will it?

I think the B2 goes that low but does it do 4th order?

I know the eQ.2 from ElementalDesigns.com has a SSF on it down below 10Hz but Im not sure of its slope.

The Mic2200 will go down to 10hz, extremely easy to setup - plug and play basically.
NeoDan has a snapshot of what button positions to have everything in somewhere around here...

I got mine off ebay or something like that for around $65

Thanks guys for your responses. I think the mic2200 is a 12db slope.

Both of these units are 2nd order. The MIC2200's filter is adjustable down to 10 Hz. In order to get 4th order you'll need to step it up to a 2496. Or just make you own .

I am interested in the same functionality.

As I see it the SMS-1 is also contender. Although the manual says it goes to 15hz a recent firmware update makes it adjustable to 1hz. It also does phase and of course EQ.

That's a very good point! I thought the sms-1 was quite expensive though when compared to a BFD and Reckhorn/behringer mic2200.

As long as your only running 1 sub, the SMS-1 will work, but more then that ya gotta step up to the DCX

The DCX is not cheap that is why I pointed it out.
It appears to do more. I really like my Behringer Feedback Destroyer. If it had phase and a hpf it would be perfect.

I just had this response from reckhorn.

I have a couple of more questions if you don't mind.

Is the Reckhorn B2 a 24db slope hpf or a 12db hpf
20-22 dB.

I am quite lucky with my dual subs co located that I don't have any phase issues. I just don't want to bottom out my subs when playing 10hz or lower which appears alot in bassotronic tracks.

cheers

Excuse my ignorance but can't you also have phase issues with your mains?

Are you talking about the MIC2200? What I am seeing in the manual is 12db slope hpf.

I'm also seeing 12db slope for the MIC2200. It says also that it has a two band parametric eq. Is that the case that you can use two bands to eq. the sub? If that's the case, it's not bad at all.

Hi guys,

I was talking about the reckhorn B2 which was a 24db slope.

Just one other thing, in Winisd when you add a hpf is a 4th order the same as a 24db slope and 2nd order the same as a 12db slope.

cheers
