  Bunch-by-bunch feedback formalism is a powerful tool for combating coupled-bunch instabilities in circular accelerators. Imperfections in the analog front and back ends lead to coupling between neighboring bunches. Such coupling limits system performance in both feedback and diagnostic capacities. In this paper, techniques for optimizing bunch-to-bunch isolation within the system will be presented. A new method for improving the performance of the existing systems will be described. The novel approach uses a "shaper" filter in the digital signal processor to compensate for the imperfect response of the power amplifier and kicker combination. An objective optimization method to derive the optimal back end configuration will be presented and illustrated with measurements from several accelerators.
