Someone out there pliz help.

hav designed equalizers for my media player that uses 9 frequencies(80,180,350,650,1,2,4,8,16) at a bandwidth of 12 but when all the equalizers are up sound becomes distorted.

whats wrong is it the bandwith am using or the frequencies.

my big question.

whats the best frequecies and bandwidth i should use for my equalizers.

I think the bandwidth may be the problem. The larger the bandwidth, the more frequencies your including around the centre frequency (i think) .. The more bands you have or the closer each frequency band is to the next, the lower the bandwidth should be so that you dont end up boosting other frequencies too much. Try using Q instead and set each bands Q between 0.5 and 1.
