Comments about dbx 215s Dual Channel 15-Band Graphic Equalizer:

The 15 band EQ is rock solid and easy to use. I produce music and promote live concerts for local upcoming artyists and bands as well as do my own performance also. This EQ added a nice touch to live sound and in the studio for recording, clean and responsive, one thing I wish it had was a level meter but hey it is great unit, priced incredibly low. I have stacked this one up agains some of the biggest names. I plan on picking up a couple more.
Stable, reliable clean sound easy to setup and use

    Comments about dbx 215s Dual Channel 15-Band Graphic Equalizer:

    I needed to clean up the sound of a Eurolive B210D the integrated eq on the powered speaker just did not cut it. But the speaker is well made and I still need to purchases a second because of the nature of the stereophonic type music I perform. Solution? DBX 15 band EQ with 2 channels and Wow. Cleaned of the sound of the B210D now I have small but loud footprint affordable monitors with the power of DBX 15 band EQ to tune up my monitors so I can get a great mix when I do gigs. Could not be more pleased. I am sure EQ would work well for a set of main PA speakers as well.

        Bought the dbx 215is from Nash music 2 years ago for my denon amp. The left channel now has annoying feedback. I noticed the bypass knob also is touchy. Its like there is a short or something. DBX wont do anything. Why cant companies back up their products?

        Very good product and a great sound. It meets my sound system needs, both artificial and live. Frequency response is awesome, very clear. One thing, it would be nice to have an on/off switch. Just saying but would still recommend.
