Lately I've been experimenting with tonal shape/frequency response/contour equalisation of sound systems. I got this idea last year while attending a L-Acoustics seminar, they talked a lot about tonal shape/contour of their sound systems. Example can be found here:
To my big suprise, I found that if I eq a sound system so it sounds pleasing to my ear for full range playback, I end up with a contour nearly identical to what L-Acoustics calls Reinforced Contour, +1dB/oct from 1K and downwards, and a "flat" level from 1K and upwards. It's also suprisingy easy to mix on, although I have to use a bit more lo-mid eq on my input channels, but not as much lo-cut as I used to do.
What's your experience with this kind of equalisation/contour response?
Do you have a preferred way of doing this? Genre/venue/audience spesific maybe?
