Best settings on a 9 band eq for rock and r&b
Provided the rest of your system is all tuned an in proper shape, and up for the wattts, the best sound to set, starting with the low end...start with is a slightly elevated above zero (about 1/4 up from zero) then slowly gradually slope it down to 1/4 below zero in middle and then back up to 1/4 above at the high end.
The result is a gently curved V type shape.
Now, knock down the highest 2 or 3 freq bands a few clicks till they are just above zero. (1/8).
This is the curve you would shoot for with a real-time analyzer for SQ, punch and clarity.
