    Se-10 Equalizer Question

    Hi

    Does anyone know if the sliders on the SE-10 equalizer are linear or log taper?

    Speculation: As far as I know, the sliders on the EQ filters are neither log nor linear. They would require special tapers related to their function. The sliders on the two gain controls may be log, but probably not in the usual sense, as the "unity gain" point is located in the center of their travel. I'm curious why you asked this question? If you are using the EQ-10 for the usual purpose of equalizing your system to the space (room) where it is located, then once adjusted the controls would normally remain fixed, making their taper a moot point. Please feel to correct me if I am wrong.

    Best Regards,
    Charlie

    Actually, there are a couple in the eq that will not clean up very well and I was considering trying to find replacements. The eq works great with my jukebox with the exception of a couple sliders that are touchy and the ground buzz that I get which I think are old filter caps in the eq power supply.

    Ah. now that makes perfect sense! I think I would try to locate a "donor" unit if at all possible and I would indeed try replacing the power supply capacitors.
