Hey, everyone!

I'm new to the forum, so please excuse any poor assumptions I may make... I recently purchased a DTA-1 T amp and have paired it with two Polk Monitor40's. For the low end, I have a Polk PSW505 (perhaps overkill ). As you probably know, most T-amps don't have an equalizer - the only control mechanism is the volume pot. So, I'm looking for a way to shape the sound a bit.

I think what I need is a decent quality and inexpensive equalizer to pass the input through before it hits the T-amp. I can always tweak the EQ on my computer/iPhone/etc, but I'd like to be able to swap my iPhone out for a friend's without having to mess with the software-based equalizer.

What are your thoughts?

Thanks!
-Rich

Hmmm.... I would LOVE to get that... But given that my amp was only $40 (and my entire setup was about $320), that might be overkill just for an EQ. :P

Thanks for the input! Perhaps you can think of something a little less expensive? The best idea I've been able to come across would be to use a guitar or bass stompbox EQ.

Behringer FBQ800, this is a decent graphic equalizer and not expensive.
