I have an old sony str-de945 receiver
Just Got a set of klipsch rf-3ii's and rc-3 center
Can someone give me some somewhat standard settings for the built in eq???
i have front treble/mid/bass adjustments.center treble/mid/bass adjustments and 250hz up to about 2.5khzs As wellas level adjustments/the level i can get tweaked as i do have a db meter but im lost on all the eq stuff and would like to improve sound if i can(worried ive got everything adjusted so that im missing some frequencies.
The rf-3's have 2 8 inch woofers and the center has 2 6.5 inch.So im assuming they will handle bass pretty well.
No sub or rears currently attatched.set to "no".
This reciever is several years old and over the years been tweaked until who knows what ive done.

Thanks for any help
In my opinion I would not use the built in EQ settings on that receiver. Just setup the levels, distance (delay), etc., verify with an spl meter, and enjoy. Most auto setups will make good speakers sound worse, unless your using some of the newer technologies out like Audyssey, for example.

In addition, there simply are no standard settings for an EQ. EQs are used to correct for inaccuracies in the system/room but to do that you would have to measure the system/room since they are all different. EQs are also used to obtain a subjectively satisfactory tonal balance but, again, that is highly individual.
