I hope you guys can help me out:
Every time I dial in a profile in my DAW to sound great it just doesn’t sound the same way via my Kabinet. There’s a lot of difference, the Kabinet sounds less defined, is more muffled while at the same time the treble is a bit unpleasant.
I’m sure there’s a physical concept behind it that I don’t understand. But to get the same sound out of the Kabinet I need to change the EQ on the profile.
Is it because I don’t play the Kabinet loud? If yes, what is the Kabinet Volume that gives me the clear representation of the profile.
What comes out of FOH?: Is it what I hear in the DAW or what I hear in the Kabinet?
To be a good monitor, shouldn’t the Kabinet sound very close to the profile that I’ll amplify to the audience?
It’s just disappointing that I can never use the same profile for both recording and playing through the Kabinet.
what am I missing?
