B7K Ultra Frequencies Question

    Making this more specific to the B7K Ultra because I am not quite sure the true proper forum to put this in, but I would also like to know if the answer generally applies anything with an equalizer.

    I am playing around with the B7K to get some certain tones and need some help.

    The frequencies are listed as: (Sorry, I have no idea why the forum adds so much space between the table)

    Band Frequency
    Bass 100Hz
    Lo Mids* 250/500/1000Hz
    Hi Mids* 750/1500/3000Hz
    Treble 5kHz
    * means selectable

    As I never really cared before, I just turned knobs until it sounded good, but now I am actually interested in exactly which direction the frequencies are being boosted or cut.

    So given this scenario of Bass @ 100Hz, Lo Mids @ 250Hz and Hi Mids @ 750Hz; what frequencies are affected by the Lo Mid knob? Is it 101-250Hz or is it 251-750Hz?

    Basically are these cut off points, starting points? My brain is telling me that these would be cutoff points, but would love a confirmation as it is actually really hard to find anything that specifically states what the number actually refers to on an EQ; just generalities.

    Wait, they're all centered? Um... well that actually makes sense. Crap, I'm going to have to fix my computer so I can analyze the sounds because I'd love to know just how wide it will go on certain settings. Guess I know what I am doing today. :smug:
