    advice on tuning my jbl 4341 studio monitors

    at the moment, I have resorted to mixing with a pair of small fostex speakers.

    If I try to mix while listening thru my jbl 4341's, and then playback on car stereo, etc, it's not balanced AT ALL

    the 4341's have 3 +/- 3db pots.

    I suppose that I could mix thru the fostex's and playback thru the jbl's, then tune the attenuators to sound balanced, but was wondering if there is a better/more scientific way

    thx

    You may have to dig in a bit and find out what's happening with the speakers, room and both.

    Start searching REW. That should get you started.

    Good luck,

    G'day Rjw,

    Can you please let us know what you do and how? I've also got a big pair of JBL monitors that could perhaps use some taming. :-)

    Thanks
    Pauly

    at the moment, I am mixing thru small speakers and enjoying the 4341's for their great sound...lol

    looking into rew, bass traps, but most importantly, I am going to let my ears do the thinking, for while...

    I'll post anything that I do, if/when it happens

    thx

    G'day again,

    Same - I use a pair of questeds for mixing, and the JBLs for fun :-) - It would be great if I could still have the fun _and_ make them good for mixing.

    I think that if you have a good mix, then you can train yourself to mix with the big boys...at least that is what I am hoping for
