Tone Controls on 8030b

Youngling Viestejä: 2 Liittymispäivä: 19.3.2016 Viimeisimmät viestit
I have 3 x 8030b set up as left, center and right in my home cinema. I have 2 x 8010a as rear left and right. There´s also an active sub, but not Genelec. I would like the Genelecs to sound less flat and more like "HiFi", -which settings do I use on the back of the speakers?
I am using a Rotel surround processer as Pre-Amp.
I also have a Denon DN500AV as a pre amp, which has a build in eq, but It´s not set up yet.
Thanks
Rasmus

You can use your subwoofer for more bass or you can move the speakers nearer to a wall or even a corner to get a bass boost.
Settings on back is only to lower bass if you are near a wall in order to get a flat response.
You can push bass and treble better by using your EQ of your Denon.

It is a bit strange that you like the HiFi sound and bought Genelec speakers which are the oposite of HiFi with perfect flat response (if you have a good room).
Are you new to your 80xx speakers?
If so wait a while, it takes some time to get used to a flat frequency response but once your are used to it you do not want anything else anymore. :D

Yep, I know that I should have bought som hifi-speakers, but I have had a dream of a Genelec setup for years...you know...one of those boyhood dreams.

In my boy I have never heart of Genelec. There I dreamt more of big bassy Infinity or JBL speakers. :D
So use your EQ to adjust the sound to your liking and habe fun.
