    Anybody that's got one of these...

    What's a "flat" setting on the preamp? If I turn all the knobs to 5, there seems to way too much bass and treble to my ears, so I turn them down... I end up with bass and treble on 3 or 4, and the mids at 5 or 6. Then there STILL seems to be SO much really deep low end, so then I go to the eq and knock down the 40Hz slider to get rid of some of the boominess. So what's "flat" on these things?

    guess I'm just used to my SVT where the knobs are all boost/cut...
