I think I'm going to make this happen soon, if anyone is still interested.


I'll build one of these too. I could use a simple LCR EQ. How can I help?

For now, I'm waiting to hear back from my tech, likely be a week or so. Looks like he's going to draw in simple buffer and line amps with it to keep everything shifting with different loads. I have to wait to see if this is really simple enough for the average studio guy to do, but worse case scenario someone can have their tech wire it up...

Anyone else interested/have any ideas regarding this?

If the object is a group build sort of thing I think it will have to be a kit. Design and make some PCB's and put together a Bill of Materials. If it's a schematic without layout I think it will be beyond the capabilities of most.

Yah, a kit is the plan (well, PCB's with BoM). Even then, some are less adventurous than others...

whats LCR?




L = inductor
C= capacitor
R= resistor

The basic circuit concept for a passive filter. Others who know what they are talking about can elaborate.

I recently bought a pair of UTC 3A Passive EQ's from, I think, 1949. I have no idea what I'm gonna do with em, but they're at a tech right now getting cleaned up, so haven't listened to em yet.

I got em on ebay, and the seller said they sound "amazing", but everything on ebay is listed as "amazing".

Anybody heard these "amazing" EQ's?

Aww... I thought it would be a 3-channel unit for left-center-right! Laughing

If it is a full kit I'd be interested as well.

I'm in as well!  I've had EQ on the brain lately so this will be a very cool learning experience.

Hmmmm, this does sound interesting. The last thing I built, was a 40meter tuna-tin  Laughing

Take Care,

"The negative aspects of this business, not only will continue to prevail, but will continue to accelerate in madness. Conditions aren't going to get better, because the economics of rock and roll are getting closer and closer to the economics of Big Business America." - Bill Graham
