Speaker Distortion

Youngling Posts: 1 Join Date: 10/7/11 Recent Posts
I have purchased a pair of 8020B speakers. I am using them as a play back (stereo), on a keyboard, and for playback for my recording software (Logic Express).
I have a lot of distortion on both high and low ends, and would like to know if I can fix this by adjusting the settings/switches on the back of the speakers?
any help would be great!

If it's truly speaker generated distortion, no, you can't fix it by adjusting the room EQ dip switches.

Is it possible that you are over driving the speakers with too high volume? Is it possible that something in the signal chain is clipping the signal before the speakers?
