if you can get your hands on one, that'd be great. Most places here in the US don't have them in stock anymore, Behringer hasn't released any new ones.

Kepa1, right on the money!!

Here is the PC software for the DCX2496.

Behringer DCx2496 web page

The download link allows the download of the PC software.
The PC software will allow you to program the DCX2496 via a serial cable, and is more friendly than the front panel.

You can download the software without the DCX.
This can be a very useful tool to learn crossover concepts.

Hi all

Thanks for the replies! I downloaded the software and played a bit with it. Really very nice to see all available functions (shelving filters ) and what is possible with the memory - I think it will be enough for my needs!

I will walk along the work agencies here in Eindhoven and look for a summer job!

Erik

You said the "DCX should be avaliable in Europe now", does that indicate Behringer will now start making them again. I am thinking of buying a used DCX but it will cost almost same as new unit because they were not making them and people are desparate for them?

Or are the stories correct that Behringer is having trouble making them again because of copyright laws and legal problems.

Hi all,
Thank you for all the info so far!

I had read most ppl using 1/6 oct tone for measure or PEQ. Is the 1/6 oct = Q = 0.16 value in the DCX?

Hi,
no.
A Q=0.16 is a very flat equalisation, either cut or boost but spread over a wide frequency range.

A high Q gives a narrow band equalisation, but DCX is limited in it's range of Qs and is not designed as a narrow band filtering system.

Oh, how I wish electronics was nice and simple, but all these terms are thrown in by the experts to confuse the rest of us.
Do they do it deliberately, to maintain a closed shop?

Thx Andrew.
In this case, what the Q exactly mean? how do I know if I adjust the PEQ frqs is 1/3 or 1/6 oct in DCX?

Seem that the BFD PEQ function will be far more precise than DCX? Will that be reduntun if I add a BFD behind a DCX?

The dcx goes up to a Q=10 on the parametric, which is pretty narrow.

AndrewT - it sounds to me like you took it out the box, played for an hour or so and packed it away ?


Rob.

FWIW I replaced a feedback destroyer pro with a dcx and it does everything I need it to on subs. Also use a dcx on my mains and have a DEQ2496 before that. With proper speakers you will not need the DEQ. Enough processing on the dcx. Only reason I still have the deq is that I haven't got round to E-baying it yet. Its sitting in the chain doing nothing right now(except showing a pretty rta of the music )

Should have added, the best way to eq is to use an rta so you can see in real time what you're doing.
