Synergistic Research FEQ Carbon: Frequency Equilizer
The Synergistic Research FEQ Carbon is a third-generation, two-channel acoustic field generator. New to the FEQ Carbon is a wholly redesigned PCB with dual RF generators. The first function of the redesign was to provide the ability to create different wave shapes, and the second was the addition of a 2nd, independently controlled ULF generator channel. This is similar to what has been used in the SR Atmosphere Infinity but is the first FEQ to have this ability, which meant 100’s of hours in the listening room finding the perfect combination of options and settings. Next was the new carbon fiber chassis. Not only cosmetically beautiful, but the carbon fibre chassis also improves the broadcast of ULF frequencies through its conductive weave. As a result, layering, three-dimensionality, and holographic realism are much improved over all single frequency FEQ’s of the past decade. In some aspects, the FEQ Carbon even outperforms the much larger and more complex Synergistic Research Atmosphere Infinity as we have isolated two different frequency combinations that represent a near-perfect yin and yang with focus and clarity on acoustic recordings and a more holographic soundstage on recordings mastered to convey a large and enveloping sound field.
Two frequency bias, one perfect sound.
Red Frequency: voiced for acoustic instruments, vocals, and smaller-scale performances
Purple Frequency: convincingly portrays large-scale performances and electronic music.
To use, plug the FEQ Carbon and its internal Ground-Plane into two separate wall sockets in your listening room and place behind and between your two main speakers or where ever you find space. Then turn it on for an immediate and unmistakable improvement in sound. One FEQ Carbon will improve an average size listening room with a greater sense of clarity, a lower noise floor, and more natural harmonics.
