Hello guys. I need some help here. My speakers hardly have any Treb. They sound very Flat. Anyone know how I can tune my speakers so they sound the best? I only want it for the Front and Center speakers. On my STR-DE845, here are my currecnt settings:

If you want to use the equalizer to get more Treble to your speakers, there are three octaves in the treble range which are:
Low Treble- 1.3-2.6k hz
Mid Treble- 2.6-5.2k hz
High Treble- 5.2-10.4k hz
Your equalizer is currently accentuating frequencies in the Low Treble range. You might consider bumping the center frequency up into the Mid or High Treble range.
There are also more benign ways to boost the Treble getting to your speakers. What source equipment and wiring are you presently using?

I'm using all the best Monster Cables and plugs. I have a digital Optical cable to the DVD player and digital Coaxial to the Digital Cable box. I don't want my speakers completely oriented to treble. I want the "rock" preset on most sound systems. (I don't know if you understand what I'm talking about) The equalizer looks like a "U" curve. High level Bass, mid level Midrange, and High level Treble. I can't set it like that because I can't see the whole equalizer. So, I'm looking for approx. values from you guys.

To simulate the U or smile setting as it is sometimes called you would set the bass at 100 hz (+10 dB), the midrange at 2.5k hz (0 dB), and the treble at 8-20k hz (+10 dB).
These settings would be a close approximation to the U setting on a 10 band equalizer although the effect is not quite as dramatic with a 3 band Digital equalizer.
I'll give that a try and tell you what I think..Thanks
Equalizer settings??? Hmm! Oh! you mean the Tone control knob. Well, I don't think that these 3 bands should really have been called an equalizer in the first place. They are more like a Bass...Treble....Midrange type of adjustment device. In my opinion, you should not have to use these, unless the source is really shitty to begin with. I never actually use the equalizer(tone control) on my DA 5es, however, I have set it up for:
Bass gain/treble gain
Bass/treble 0 gain
Bass cut/treble gain
Bass 0 gain/treble gain
The midrange is adjusted accordingly with the treble...just a few notches as I would say.
Whenever, I play a really bad source...like some oldies... I use it to dress up the sound a little. Otherwise I use AFD, without anything else to play the source.
Just my opinion... it is not necessarily the right one.

Personaly I find AFD or any other DSP processing corrupts the Analog Audio signal. I prefer to use 5.1 Analog bypass and if I find the sound needs to be altered I switch out interconnects until I get the results I'm after.
This does not mean that I don't respect the right others have of experimenting with equalizers or tone controls.
I bought my first Equalizer and Real Time Frequency Spectrum Analyzer w/ Pink Noise Generator back in 1980 and used it every day until I found a more accurate and passive way to control the tone without having to run the delicately detailed Audio signal through a series of filters.
