An ADC Equalizer Can Balance Your Music

An equalizer can help you to balance your music and is an important component of your home's audio system. If you are looking to make a purchase, you can find a wide selection of equalizers on eBay. Here are a few tips to consider before you buy an equalizer.

How does an equalizer work?

An equalizer adjusts the balance between the audio's frequency components. Equalization will use linear filters to alter the frequency. You can find an equalizer on most hi-fi equipment. Some people use these equalizers to change the sound of the music. For home use, equalizers can help you to adjust the audio signal in your stereo system. You can tune your music so it has more bass or treble. Some units even have an additional setting to control the higher frequencies.

What's the difference between a graphic and parametric equalizer?

The input signal is sent through filters in a graphic equalizer. As the signal passes through the filters, the frequency is altered. You can adjust the amplitude by using a slide control. Most home units have only five to ten frequency bands that can be adjusted. A parametric equalizer is a multi-band device. You can control the bandwidth, amplitude, and center frequency. These equalizers can make a more precise adjustment to your music. Most professional recording studios use this type of equalizer. There is a third type of equalizer known as a semi-parametric equalizer. It is similar to the parametric equalizer, but users can only control the frequency and amplitude. The bandwidth can only be changed to a wide or narrow band.

When would you use a low-pass or high-pass filter?

A high-pass filter can pass higher frequencies as it decreases the low-frequency of sound. The low-pass filter is the opposite of the high-pass filter. It can pass the lower-frequency components while filtering out higher frequencies. Some people use a low-pass filter to remove higher frequencies from their subwoofers. These filters are called "low-cut" and "high-cut" because they alter the signal.
