I've set the volume on my receiver to deliver the cleanest signal without hissing or clipping (54 seems to be the sweet spot), and I've put the bass on +10dB. On the software side of things, I've eq'ed the bass to the peak the amp inside the receiver is able to handle, and I only use the volume control on foobar to adjust the volume. Depending on the song, the bass can clip with the volume slider on 25%, where on other songs it can clip when the volume is at around 75%. In those cases, I, like you, have to eq some things down, but I only have a handful of songs like that, so it isn't all that bad. 90% of my songs usually clip out when my volume slider is at around 60%, but I can only take that volume for a minute or two. 

 

What I mean't by mine is louder isn't the way I have my rig set up, but how we eq. Simply put, when you eq down, it's going to be quieter than eq'ing up. In order to balance it out you have to up the pre-amp, whereas for me I just eq up a certain frequency and I'm done. Well, at least that's how I think you eq based off of what you said. I'll just throw up some pics of my eq settings in order to clarify. 

 

 

 

 

I have two instances of Electri-Q set up in foobar, so I run both of these simultaneously. When I run across one of my odd songs that clip at low volumes, I usually disable the second one. 

 

EDIT: This is my first time using Electri-Q, so I'm still trying to find my sweet spot for the bass area. 


well, for me, its worth eqing down just for the peace of mind, knowing ill never get any clipping. but to each his own i guess =]

 

heres how i typically eq

 

 

that dip at 7khz is another reason why i like eqing so much. my dt770s have a massive peak at that frequency and for a long time i got really fatigued and couldnt listen to music for more than 10 minutes at a time. now that i can eq that peak away - i can enjoy music for prolonged sessions without any grief. 

and yea, i get crashes every couple of days. i can uninstal and reinstall electriq with a flash. all the practice iv got has made me a speedy pro!

 

looks like you have a newer version of electriq than i do, could you send me a pm as to where i can download it from?

also, how do you open 2 at a time? is that a feature of the new version?

i think clipping is more to do with how your eqing, not what. anyhow, i eq in foobar, so a youtube video will be eq-free. im afraid i cant help.

adamir, just click the presets pane box in the top right. 

 

That's more that just a dip...that's a 15dB crater...I usually eq down to remove the spikes in some headphones, but not by that much. Goodness...

oh yea! haha! so how do i get two to run at the same time?

 

and its not 15dB, it about 6.5dB, relative to frequencies above 300Hz (and with a little roll off at the end, coming back at -2dB from the rest). of course, the bass is boosted by ~10dB itself, but that doesnt change anything. if i didnt have that dip, the peak would be almost as loud as the bass. while not necessary audible, its still very fatiguing to me.

Ah, okay. In order to have multiple instances, just click on it on the right panel and click the left arrow over.
