Part of my "house curve."
I think we are saying the same thing. the normal house curve is 0 at the low bass, gently sloping down in the high frequencies sometimes by as much as 20 db.
im saying that many people , me included, will not find this balanced.
I listen at lower volumes so my highs are boosted a bit, per the fletcher munson equal loudness curve

Using Dirac Live's custom target editor, I try and match the speaker's normal response curve, rather than trying to boost the high end. The nice thing about custom target curves, especially if you have a product that matches the flexibility of Dirac Live, is that you can create a response target that matches your preference. And preference is just that--different for different people.
absolutely. Im just saying that I also thought it was fact the listeners prefer a gently sloping house curve, and I chased that for a long time.
but I have changed my opinion and I feel that many factors go into the preferred curve, and for many, it is not close to what the article by Todd suggests, or the bruel and Kjaer curve etc.
