View Full Version : Several hours with the beerqualizer...

Okay. I think it's there.
Flatted everything, and then started cutting. Then I flatted it again. And again. And then I downloaded "what your equalizer does" from the behringer web site, and saw that, at least according to it, I was hitting the wrong areas...
So now,I've got a bit of a dip between 50 and 100ish (flatting out the sub a tad...), and a more pronounced dip between about 1,000 and 4,000hz. Tapered it down a little on the high end too. A LOT of the "damn, but that horn sounds horrid" went away. Did a lot of a/b-ing, and a few trips running the CD upstairs to compare with the maggies, and I'm sorta happy. Didn't resort to the 12db setting, but I'm down about 4.5-5db in a few spots.
Now it's time to go throw in the Eagles 5.1 disk, and see how that flies...

Eagles worked... Kick drum got dropped just a little more - I think I'm gonna either build some slightly larger lower Q boxes, or seriously stuff the Bitties... Just that tad-bit of a boom there.
They do work for rock, and I think they'll be okay with some stuffing.
Then it was Norah Jones - a blue note DVD... The thing's a little hot, but dang, it sounded a LOT better than yesterday. The bass sounds good and tight, but I can tell where a bit of stuffing can even things out a smidge. Overall, I'm happy.

Just imagine how much better it could sound if you purchased one of those special audiophile clocks...
Hey, have any pictures of all this?

Ah... But I have a clock plugged in in The Bunker, so that I know what time it is... Because it is always dark in The Bunker.
The audiophile clock's value, however, is negated due to the 9 volt battery backup. I find that not having to reset it when the power goes out is preferable to the enormous sonic gains which it could provide...
I also have an audiophile kegerator, an audiophile coffeemaker (for when audiophile people stay over...), an audiophile toilet, and the audiophile washer/dryer combination.
I gotta go run the audiophile vacuum cleaner this afternoon.

All this Audiophilia makes me want to say....Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition!

Oh yeah... There's a pair of audiophile hand grenade lamps (a friend makes 'em outta inert practice grenades) on top of the front mains.

Tuned, I trust, for rear baffle diffraction effects?

HAHAHAHAHA. Oh Boy....that was 2 drops of pee funny. Could that be called a Bass Cannon?

Well, I'm pretty sure that it's ported correctly.
