  • EQing with hall empty of any use?

    I apologize if this subject has been addressed, but does it do any good to EQ an empty hall for room acoustics or feedback suppression? Doesn't everything change when it's full of people?

    You can do an EQ to get the major part set, but yes, there will be tweaking when it's filled with people.

      The good news is that the addition of an audience will improve the acoustics, at least from a PA tuning point of view. So you can do a soundcheck, ring out the lower-frequency feedback, etc. Then when the audience comes in you may find a couple new feedback frequencies, and also end up dialing some of the highs back up.

        Thanks very much. Without a lot of experience, I was considering using some of the newer automated tools, but it seems they would likely cut frequencies that don't need to be cut and adversely affect the sound. If I have to readjust it anyway, I wonder if there's any value in these tools. It sounds like nothing beats a good ear and good manual control.
