hey Guys,
this is interesting...... http://www.soundforums.net/live/threads/2348-Frequency-Response-Contour-EQ-in-full-range-systems.

Sure is, I've been following it. I dont think the argument that the spectral contour of the PA should follow the contour of the supposed program very persuasive.

But at the same time, its one of the least interesting or complex discussions you could have regarding system design and alignment. In so far as, once you have achieved a consistent response across the house, it is relatively trival to give the FOH engineer some broad tonal controls to adjust to Low<>Mid<>High balance to their preference, which they will do anyway, be it on the Channel Strips, Submix Busses, or Outputs.

What I would find a more interesting discussion, perhaps, would be headroom management especially for program which has rather gross LF tipup.
