Filtek MK3 -6db drop when engaged
« on: April 08, 2011, 06:45:24 AM »
Hello!

I have a filtek mk3 eq here that i'm racking up. the eq seems to work fine, the problem is that the volume drops -6db when I engage it. Does anybody have an idea what could cause that drop in volume?

thank you very much,

andi

are you running it balanced or unbalanced ?

greetings,

Thomas

hey thomas, all lines are balanced. the eq has a "bypass-switch" and as soon as I flip this switch to "eq on" the volume drops...

thank you

sounds like you are losing one leg of the balanced input or balanced output when you engage it

Exactly what I was thinking of-a 6dB drop nearly always implies a switch from balanced to unbalanced.

Good luck, ;)
