    On some amps the EQ controls go from 1 to 10 (er, 11!); and on some amps the knobs show cut, 0 at 12 o'clock (flat), and boost. My question is: on knobs showing 1 to 10 would 5 be considered flat?
  2. That question is specific tho the amp in question. It works different ways.

    On my BMAX bass and treble are mainly boost and mids are cut only. Flat is around 2 - 10 - 2.

    OK. On my old Sunn stuff: treble 1 - 10, mid 1 - 10, bass 1 - 10

    Hartke: treble cut-0-boost, hi mid cut-0-boost, lo mid cut-0-boost, bass cut-0-boost.
  4. It depends, use your ear

    Sometimes its a case of the ones that go 1 to 10, they will either boost or cut, not both
