I got nothing against either amp. Both VERY nice. I also got nothing against turning eq's. Only thing I think of, if you dial BACK bass, up mids etc to get a "flat-ish" response, where do you go if you get a "bassy" room & you need to bump mids, cut more bass? I found when I owned a STL, I had 2 cut the bass back to around 9 o'clock, sometimes 8 o'clock, then I played a horrid room, where it's notoriously boomy, & had nowhere to go.
