8260A Manual Ctrl adjustments

Hi there,

when set to manual ctrl, how are the adjustments (like treble tilt) made in the speaker, with DSP or in the traditional way? Former seems logical, but just wanted to be sure.

Hey,

yes you could do it within the GLM software, by manually adjusting the EQ graph to taste (either instead or after the automatic calibration), and then save that into the speakers. You will have multiple shelve and notch filters available there. The 8260's do have dip switches too, but I would assume the first option is way more accurate.

That being said, I personally leave everything as being automatically calibrated by Autocal and I absolutely love it. Of course the adjustments of Autocal only affect the spectrum up to 6000 Hz, but if you desire adjustments above that I would personally tackle that with acoustic room treatment instead of messing with the amazing flat frequency response of these babies.

Best, Ulrich

Hi,

Manual controls are also done with the DSP.
