Using the Tsunami Equalizer

Tsunami’s built-in equalizer (or “EQ” as the audio guys like to call it) is much like that you’d on your home stereo system. The equalizer allows you to selectively cut and boost sound levels by +/-12dB over seven selected frequency ranges and provides the “ultimate” tone control.

When most people hear about Tsunami’s equalizer, their first reaction is “Great, now I can really crank up the bass!” What they don’t realize is that the equalizer is also there to cut out the low frequencies as well.

Every speaker has a limit to the lowest frequency it can efficiently reproduce. This is determined by a number of factors and in particular, the speaker’s physical size. To reproduce a low frequency sound at high volume requires the ability to move a lot of air, and hence a large diameter diaphragm.

On the other hand, the electromagnet at the base of the speaker cone will react just fine to even the deepest bass. So if we try to drive a low frequency sound signal thru a small speaker, the speaker still physically reacts to the signal - we just don’t hear it very well because only a small amount of air is
