Preset: Low Volume Music
- This is optimized for low volume music. The low bass and treble are boosted to better match the physics/psychoacoustics of our own auditory system.
- For prerecorded music at low level, for DJs and for break music at the gig. Sort of like the Fletcher-Munson (Tony Sarno calls it the “Herman Munster”) curve; bass and treble boost, just the right amount if you’re playing at 85 dB or so. Source: Presets 2.0Cliff-at-Bose
Preset: High Volume Music
- This is optimized for higher volume music. Some of the bass is boosted and some of the upper mids are reduced to have a more natural sound at these higher volumes.
