DESCRIPTION

The Altec Lansing 1431A is a boost and cut '/3 octave graphic equalizer whose primary use is for tuning the overall frequency response of a sound reinforcement system, both to increase gain-before feedback and to compensate for the deficiencies in the acoustic environment and the sound system.

The active Q variable filter set utilized in the 1431A allows effective equalization with few problematic side effects. As Figure 1 illustrates, the filter characteristics vary with the amount of boost or cut used. At low control settings, the filter Q is very wide. As the control is boosted or cut, the filter Qnarrows so that there is minimum interaction between adjacent frequency bands. The filter response is designed to affect a'/:,-octave range.
Each of the 31 'V;3-octave filters provide 12 dB of boost or cut at ISO frequencies 20 Hz through 20,000 Hz. The faders have a positive detent in the center, flat-response position. The gain control also has a center detent at unity gain.
A low-cut filter switch, with a 43 Hz corner frequency and 18 dB per octave slope, is located on the front panel. A range select switch allows selection of either 6 dB or 12 dB of boost or cut.
