Summit Audio FeQ-50 Passive Equalizer at a Glance:
Single-channel EQ with a characteristically warm sound
The Summit Audio FeQ-50 is a single-channel, 4-band, parametric EQ with iron-based circuitry. The FeQ-50 was designed to be a sonically warm and harmonically pleasing equalizer that adds character and depth to any signal.
Switch-selectable frequencies plus low and high shelving
Each of the Summit Audio FeQ-50's four bands features switch-selectable frequencies with six frequencies on each band, as well as fully sweepable gain of +/- 14dB with a center detent at 0dB. The low and high bands feature peaking or shelving select, the middle two bands with wide and narrow switches. The FeQ-50's fully passive highpass filter has a knee at 30Hz with a 6dB-per-octave roll-off, while the signal path is transformerless.
Both XLR and 1/4" inputs with balanced and unbalanced outs
Housed in Summit Audio's 1/2 rack chassis, the FeQ-50 is very versatile when it comes to I/O. Both XLR-balanced and 1/4" unbalanced inputs are accommodated on a Neutrik combo jack. For outputs, the FeQ-50 has balanced +4dB XLR and balanced -10dB TRS for both the solid-state and tube signal paths, all of which are individually buffered and can be used simultaneously.
Like all Summit Audio products, the FeQ-50 has an internal high voltage power supply and has a 3 year warranty.

Amazing EQ in a small package
by Rob Coates from IowaThis is an absolutely great EQ! Improves the sound of anything going through it. Even with all controls flat, it still improves the sound of whatever you throw at it.

A cool feature is the choice of tube or solid state output. close [-]

by Litvak from Ventura Co, CAI recently puchased the Summit Audio 2BA-221 preamp to have a tube-blend option for warming up my DAW input. It sounded so good direct into my audio interface that I stopped using an outboard mixer fo... read more [+]r tone control, inserts, and effects looping. I can loop outboard effects via SPDIF off the audio interface, and the 2BA-221 has an insert. The only rub was that I lost outboard tone control. Soft fx are great for soft-synths, but I like to control real-world instruments with real-world gear. So I called Jason at Sweetwater and told him I was thinking of buying the EQ3B since the parametric eq on my Eureka worked fine. He talked me into the FeQ-50 with the rationale that it would equal the quality vibe of my 2BA-221. I am so happy he did. This unit would appear to have less functionality that other eqs because the Q is not continuous (only narrow or wide) and the frequency selections are kind of coarsely quantized. Nonetheless this thing sounds so good that any worries of limitations are quickly replaced with amazement of how effectively you can shape your sound via the detents and swiches. I feel like I can dial in the exact sound I'm looking for in no time. When I turn on the bypass, the difference is night and day. The think is dead quiet and retains the warmth of the 2BA-221. I used to think of eq strictly to solve problems like rumble and hiss. With this unit I think of eq as a creative tool. close [-]
