    aight i have a trace elliot ah300-7 it has a 7band eq

    50hz 100hz 250Hz 500Hz 1Khz 2Khz 5khz

    I believe those are the frequencies, could anyone help me find a nice setting that can cut through a band, and that is warm and fat. I have 2 trace elliot 4x10s if that helps lol

    Cheers

    EQing is really just trial and error. You will need someone out in the crowd listening to see if you are getting through (hence why soundboard guys are usually in the middle or back of a small theater house). If lows need to get through more that person will have to tell you to up the lows then up the lower end a little.

    If it it is you who can't hear yourself over the band then maybe equipment change to something more powerful?

    To typically cut through a mix, it's in the mids. Flatten the 50/100Hz, boost the 250/500/1000, flat the 2000 % 5000. That should give you a general start. Maybe MAYBE up the lows a little bit.
