Re: Audio Setup - EQ Settings

The further left you go, the deeper into the bass; the further to the right, the higher into the treble. wink  Basically this works like an old-school narrow-band equalizer, with each slider operating over a one-octave range.

You didn't specify which part of the bass spectrum you want to cut, but many speakers have a resonant peak between 100Hz and 150Hz, so I'd start by bringing down the 125Hz slider (third from the left).  If this turns out to be above or below what you're hearing as excessive bass, try the second or fourth sliders respectively.

Just move the sliders.  devil Until you get what you want, PV already suggested something. It depends also what speakers you use, if they have sub woofers etc. etc. and also probably the soundcard.

Re: Audio Setup - EQ Settings

Also, if you have a powered subwoofer with its own level control...I didn't mention that above because that's the first thing I'd tweak, but I might as well put everything on the table...

...if my speakers/room were off far enough for me to want to tweak the tone, I'd probably just throw in a passive Tweed tone control between the soundcard and speakers...nothing more complicated than a Baxendall. monkey

Re: Audio Setup - EQ Settings

^ Note the hyphen after 'speakers' - with `apt-get install`, this means to remove the package. wink

I bet those speakers would be great for action movies. cool
