help setting EQ for swans m200mkii speakers

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

 

 

hello i recently bought swans m200mkii loudspeakers along with asus xonar dx soundcard

the speaker is good alright..but i have difficulty setting the equalizers.. i can't seem to get the sound i desired..

i am using foobar(asus asio out) along with vst plugins > dmg audio equality / bluecats triple EQ 4

i haven't touched anything from the hardware equalizer settings

i mostly listen to alternative rock , progressive/melodic death metal and a lil bit of pop..

i want the vocals to be clear first of all, second the guitars and then drums.

problem is when i experiment with any of these attributes ie, vocals, guitars , drums from the EQ, it sounds kind of muddy..

i don't quite know how to put in audiophile terms, i would like the mids to be crystal clear..

please give me some suggestions as to how to set it / which EQ/plugins to use/not to use etc

any help would be much appreciated

room size = small ; placement of the speaker..if it helps..

Have you tried without any of those plugins loaded, and then just use the built-in Foobar EQ.

 

Also have you read this thread here?

yes i've tried the inbuilt EQ before and i don't like it.. now i'm not using any EQ.. sounds better to my ears this way..

however i do like the guitar sound i'm getting using some VST plugins..but the vocals become a total no no again..
