    Provided I am not mistaken, and that these two devices serve the same purposes in HT (taming your bass response), which one would you recommend? And why?

    I believe they are 2 different things:

    BFD = Parametric EQ

    ICBM = Line level bass management

    So, does that mean I could use both?

    Would that be beneficial?

    Yes, you could.

    ICBM's are for 6 channel bass management for SACD / DVD audio, I believe. This is a result of early SACD and DVD-A players lacking any bass management at all.

    The sub line would run through the BFD for bass eq, although you could use EQ on all channels if you wish.

    Exactly correct.

    The typical use for the Behringer device is to prevent microphone feedback in a prosound environment, although it also finds use in the consumer arena as an inexpensive parametric EQ.
