    Can anyone recommend a good bass EQ, either tightly spaced graphic or decent parametric? I could use some help with a room that needs taming. Thanks.

    the one and only, behringer feedback destroyer.. do a search on bfd and you will find tons of info on it.. Fully-adjustable, can do dual subs, and you can dial in pretty much any frequency you need to tame.. or boost [​IMG]

    Bill,

    Craig’s right – the digital parametric BFD is your best option for the money – as cheap as $125 at some outlets. Any "decent" analog parametric will cost more than twice that much (as long as we’re talking "new" prices).

    Regarding graphics, you can get some budget 1/3-octave models for a little more than the BFD. However, the only ones with “tight” filters are high-end professional models – we’re talking $1-2000.

    Regards,
    Wayne A. Pflughaupt

    I would avoid the graphic EQs... you'll need to cut or boost very narrow frequency bands (1-2Hz wide). The other frequently mentioned parametric EQs are from Rane, Symmetrix, & QSC. Although more expensive, these work well at frequencies >1kHz. I A/Bd the Rane and BFD and couldn't hear any differences (for LFE use).
