I like having the protection for when situations could turn ugly. I used to use another dbx unit on the horns and drums monitor sends but since all of the horns went to bell mics and the drummer was replaced with a more dynamic player less of a gorilla I no longer needed the additional two channels of protection. Our last gig, we had to wait for a party of 8 eating pizza with their kids to finish up so we could move tables to set up. I have one and just started playing with it in the living room last night.
View the Media Kit. The control of the device is not hard to figure out, but it is not intuitive. From the powerful DSP module to the no-nonsense user interface, the AFS provides all the processing and control necessary for both installation and live use. One of the claimed advantages of these units is that the Q is much more narrow than a typical 31 band EQ.
As I said in my earlier post, we have never once had a sound check, let alone an opportunity to ring out a room. For my application, which is handling feedback from wireless mics which are mobile in front of the PA, it will work fine.
In addition to the plethora of feedback suppression filters available, the AFS also offers selectable modes, live filter lift, and types of filtration, which are all readily available via the intuitive user interface front panel. Doubtful the customers would appreciate us ringing out the room. Not as well as turning down, but quite well.

The feedback had to reach very high levels before the unit could find it.

No, I don’t own a 31 band EQ. The ‘ringer units were justly dumped in the “not with my money” category. One of these mics af passed around for bridal party toasts and MC duties in front of the mains and they are also the main mics for our lead singers that move around the stage a lot.

I recall him making some positive statements about them. I’m thinking of small rooms with bad acoustics. I haven’t used Sabine, so cannot offer an opinion there.
Trying to watch the color of a pushbutton is tough when you have your finger on it. I had a couple of the Behringer units and found them useless. Or just EQ to taste? Thanks and Regards, Dave C. I have both the dbx and the Sabine GRQ. I like the GUI on the driverack though, because it shows you where the notches are and how wide, then you can adjust.
You can set the number of filters, fixed or live, that you want to use.

I use mine between the send and the amp for monitors. One thing about the AFS that I don’t like is the user interface. Go to Quote List.
