    HLCD's + no EQ = PMB

    Just thought I'd share that these horns sound like absolute **** with no EQing....

    Kill me now.... I have a **** TON of fine tuning coming my way...

    Per tonight's rule:

    Yup...horns are like that...even the Forte's need a bit of EQ'ing to tune out the room nastiness

    But when you get everything right;

    as said it's more than worth it after the eq'ing is done right.

    Re: HLCD's + no EQ = PMB

    I raised the x-over point to 3.2k and brought the mids up and they're bearable now... makes me appreciate the sound of the XT25's right out of the box now...lol

    I did just "throw" them in, no re-set gains... they're getting 1/2 the power due to the ohm load and I STILL had to drop them 8-12db @ the headunit...

    These things are ridiculous... I can't wait to get the DQT... I'll probably get an external crossover later that can allow me to drop them below 1k... just for shits and giggles... I didn't pay $400 for nothing


    PMB=Pure Maximum Butthole BTW.

    There is no "E" in the word "owl".

    Thanks for your time.
