I mean, nobody is seriously going to be looking at 5kHz (for example) when they can hear some boxy, honky mid tones.
    Not an experienced person. But certainly someone who is new to the concept, which the OP clearly was- they weren't hearing problems first. Which was my whole point. If you dont know what you are looking or listening for you can sweep and cut and boost and stare at analyzer waveforms all day and end up with useless audio. Hear first. Always. Sorry if you disagree.
