Neumann W492 EQ - How to change the Q-value ?
« on: July 26, 2009, 10:26:17 AM »
Hi folks,

can anybody please explain what I have to do to get the Neumann W 492 bell-EQ-curves more narrow ?
Referring to "Audioxs" papers "page 2 of 4" I thought it´s done via R24, but I can only get it wider.
 
Thanks !

just find all the dcr and take it out.

there might be some you could reduce in the inductor by using bigger wire and a bigger core, and/or drop the series resistor if there is one, but how would we know, as we have no schemo to gaze and ponder.

If I can't fix it, I can fix it so nobody else can!

Sorry ... I thought the Neumann W492 is a popular project at The Lab ...

So here´s the schematic-link from audiox:

Telmar,

This looks like a pretty standard state-variable filter, by far the most common implementation of a 'parametric' equalizer.

Do a Google search for "state variable filter" or "state variable eq" and you'll find plenty of resources.
