So people usually use equalizers to make their speakers frequency response flat or uncolored. Trying to improve your audio systems sound with an EQ can either be for the better or worse. You can definitely improve your audio setup with an equalizer if you know what youre doing.
What is the point of an equalizer?
Equalizers are used in recording studios, radio studios and production control rooms, and live sound reinforcement and in instrument amplifiers, such as guitar amplifiers, to correct or adjust the response of microphones, instrument pick-ups, loudspeakers, and hall acoustics.
What eQualizer setting is best?
Best EQ Settings for Drums 50-100 Hz boosts the kick drum. 500-3,000 Hz will boost your snare, depending on what model youre using. Cutting mid-range (while leaving your highs and lows relatively boosted) will help bring out your toms. (This is known as a “V curve” because of how it looks on a graphic equalizer.)
For FPS games, try adjusting 2000 or 4000 Hz frequency in order to hear the footsteps better.
How do I choose an equalizer?
First, position speakers for best sound. Next, set equalizer controls to neutral or 0 before adjusting to your listening preference. For brighter treble, reduce mid-range and low-end frequencies. For more bass, tone down treble and mid-range frequencies.
