His sollution was an empress para-eq. I thinik searching for that piece of kit would get you the info I'm remembering. I think he did a thread about the EQ after recieving it and curing his issue.
From memory the issue was a weird resonance that the limited streamliner EQ couldn't dial out.
While the Streamliner sounds very nice with the Thunderchild, it will always be 'wide, smooth, pure' and more 'deep and smooth' than punchy. I ended up prefering amps with a bit more present midrange response with my Thunderchild amps. Never could dial in the 'punch' on the gig with that particular combination. Pure IMO there, and given my tone goals, which involve strong low mids, and a somewhat bright 'top of the cone' upper mid response with a bit of grit.
Of course, an external EQ would work also.
That being said, per my post above from a year ago, if a user digs the Streamliner with the EpiUL cabs, he/she would most likely dig it with the Thunderchild, since both will be wide, pure and 'relaxed' in the midrange.
