    Hello,

    I've heard plenty of success stories of people using the 1124P to balance out their sub's FR. Is the FBQ 3102 a viable alternative? Links posted below...

    BFD is parametric eq, 3102 is 1/3 octave parametric eq. So with 3102 you have 20, 25, 31.5, 40, 50, 63, 80, 100Hz bands to deal with. Not much, but they may be enough. With BFD you have hundreds of bands, since you can choose them by your self. You can't use most of 3102 bands and you don't need a stereo eq with one sub (yes BFD is also stereo).

    I would absolutely take the BFD.

    I agree with Ilkka.

    BFD allows you to set the parametric frequencies (up to 12 per stereo channel), at any frequency unlike the limited 1/3 octave specified frequencies of the 3102. For example, if you have bass peaks at say 47Hz and 73Hz, the 1124 could handle it, the 3102 couldn't.

    Typically, 1/3 octave measurements are too coarse to identify problem bass peaks (1/6 to 1/12 octave is preferred) and it is also too coarse to be used for bass EQ correction (BFD has 1/60 octave resolution).
