    Hi there,

     

    I would just like to enquire on more information about the FBQ feature of the DSP on the IQ series.

     

    When using Auto and mode on the FBQ feature, do the filters get lifted after a while or how long do they stay activated? 

     

    Can someone also more clearly explain to me the difference between the Auto mode and the Single mode?

    Does Single mode only filter a maximum of 8 frequencies and thereafter nothing? 

     

    The manual says this: 
    Auto: Automatically sets as many filters as required. Whenever a new feedback frequency is discovered, the first filter will be released to attenuate the new frequency, and so forth.
    Single: Activates the FBQ (feedback detection) functionality, up to 8 feedback filters.

    On the HW:B FW2.2 IQ's the Learn function also does not seem to be working correctly. 

     

    ~ Thanks in advance for any answers / replies 

    Regards

      Nothing from anyone? 


      One of the biggest reasons for moving over to a complete Turbosound IQ rig was the advanced DSP functions and especially the FBQ. But I need to better know how it functions so I can use it correctly and with confidence.

      Hi Armand @Armand_RSA ,


      I think the reason no one has responded to your question is that most of us that use the iQ series of speakers do not use the feedback portion of the DSP. Back in the days when I had an analog setup (with an A&H GL2400 console), I used the Behringer Feedback Destroyers on the monitors. When I switched over to the X32, I continued to use the Feeback Destroyers until someone challenged me to learn how to properly ring out/EQ the speakers. I accepted that challenge and glad I did. The monitors sounded so much better and clearer (and had more life to them). Eventually I gave away those Feedback Destroyers. So I pass on the challenge.

      Thanks for the response. 

      The thing is I am a DJ, and run directly from my DJ mixer into the IQ's. I used to have a JBL EON rig that I ran through a DBX PA2. All the built in DSP options on the IQ's was the main reason I upgraded, so a non-functioning FBQ feature is somewhat annoying.

      Hi Armand,


       


      On the HW:B FW2.2 IQ's the Learn function also does not seem to be working correctly.
      Can you detail the issue here a bit more? Happy to report this to CARE and see if they can run some tests. We are certainly not aware of an issue like this.


      Auto: Automatically sets as many filters as required. Whenever a new feedback frequency is discovered, the first filter will be released to attenuate the new frequency, and so forth.
      This means that up to 8 notch filters will be added automatically, once the 8 are used if another feedback frequency is detected then the first filter will be overwritten by the new one.



      Single: Activates the FBQ (feedback detection) functionality, up to 8 feedback filters.
      Once 8 filters are deployed, it will not add or replace any more.

      Hi @AlexLane,


       


      Thank you for the info on Auto and Single FBQ modes. 



      Last question on that, when I use Auto mode and feedback occures and the IQ "catches" that frequency, does it "release/lift" it after a while, or does it only reset when you power off the unit? 


       


      HW:B Firmware 2.2. Learn function problem:
      When you activate the FBQ Learn Function, it should output a few loud "clicks/pops" (So the unit can hear what frequencies are causing feedback) I have tested this on Firmware 1.7 and it works, but on Firmware 2.2 it is completely silent. 

      Here is a picture of the feature I am refering to:

      Hi Kevin, welcome to the community.


       


      We may be able to help if you tell us about the rest of your sound system and how you want to use it. Are you feeding the B15Xs from a mixer? 


       


      The DSP in the B15X includes LF and HF limiters to protect the drivers from overload. This doesn't mean that it isn't necessary to adjust signal levels in the sound system but it makes it less likely that excessive levels would cause damage.


       


      One important point is that the B15Xs (and any other active speakers or amplifiers) should be powered-on last - after every other part of the system is on and stable.  They should also be powered-off first when shutting down.

      I'm using a yamaha 12 channel mixer and sometimes I use bluetooth to run my music through them. On the speaker there is a bar graph type thing that shows input. Just not sure where it should be exactly. And the speakers came with know information at all.

      You can download the user guide here. It gives some instructions for setting the built-in mixer's input and output levels. The most important level display is the output (right) one - it should not reach the top (clipping).

    Hi,

     

    When the limiter is off, is there still a master limiter activated as to not push the system beyond it's capabilities?

    What is the differance in Ip2000 ver 1 and ver 2?
    If it's software is there an upgrade for the software?

      @JimDillon I have been trying to sort this myself for a while now as I own an ip2000 v1 system. What I have come to find out, the v2 system can get firmware updates and the v1 can not. I hoped it would be easily upgradable by simply installing the firmware. It is not. The firmware update is done via the Turbosound app which is the same version for both v1 and v2. The app can detect if you have the V1 or V2 system and if it's V2, it allows the firmware upgrade-I believe there have been 2 so far.

    I'm very frustrated because for over 2 hours I've been negotiating this site with no answers, and going in circles answering and re answering the same questions but no info from this site.  

    All I want to know is where to get some technical info such as schematic or service manual to repair this Turbosound IQ15B with blown parts on the amplifier and power supply boards.  Or where to get replacement boards..

      Hi Ray ( @Mhound ), 


       


      Welcome to the community.  As far as I know, neither TurboSound nor any of the other Music Tribe companies for that matter, publish schematics or services manuls for their products.  Your best option is to open a support ticket here: https://www.turbosound.com/brand/turbosound/support#googtrans(en|en)


       


      You should receive an auto-reply email shortly after opening the ticket. If you don't, double check your spam folder.  That email will say that someone will contact you within one business day. Be patient as that's been more like a week ( or more) these days. 


       


      Hope this helps, 


      Ken

    I've read somewhere that Turbosound products now have a 10 year warranty, can anyone confirm this?

     

    Cheers

      @wookiemIt's true, it's true, it's all true! Edit: Seriously as far as I know they have the same 10 year warranty as Midas

    I own 2 15 inch siena tsp152-ans.  I was going to buy a pair of 12 in loudspeakers but before i do i was wondering the differences between the siena, nuQ, and athens product lines.  The athens have different dispersion options but other than that i am unsure what their main selling points are.  If i go by frequency response and max spl then the sienas are the best bet.  The other two lines are more expensive and i wonder why that is?  Thanks for any help anyone can provide.

      @Dae_dalus82 I cant speak to all the exact differences but when I looked (at turbosound in general) a while back, some models that had the ultranet port, did not include an ethercon port with it. I know the enclosre on some models differed in materials used and would suspect the speakers and perhaps the on board amps are different in some key ways.

    Does the USB connection work only with Behringer Digital Wireless mics or will it work with other brands? Thanks

    Does anyone have a parts manual or parts list? I had my speakers bashed with a bat (client bought me new ones) and now I'm trying to get parts to fix?
