Tactic3d Rage Wireless (Tactic3d Control Panel) enhance EQ range?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I've been trying tog et a bit more range out of the EQ sliders in my Tactic3d control panel as all the EQ sliders go -24/+24 but the rpe-amp only goes -12/+12 so it cuts audio qauite bad when I boost bass...

I listen to Hardstyle / Hardcore music a lot and that music needs a hella lot of bass and I can't go any higher then +6 on the bass sliders with bass boost enabled or it will start to drop volume / hit the limiter when bass kicks in.

I need to extend the range on the Pre-amp slider.

I tried editting the .dat/.xml profiles and the slider does say ''-24'' or ''-18'' when I edit the line but it doesn't lower volume below -12.

Is there anyone that knows how to do it, Knows of alternative drivers, knows of other ways to drop pre-amp, or knows how to code these drivers and can help me edit the EQ limits?

EDIT:

Managed to improve the sound a bit by lowering all EQ presets to -24DB, putting Pre-amp on +3DB and then adjusting the EQ starting from -24DB in stead of 0DB. This gave a effective boost to the pre-amp by having everything at -24DB to begin with. Works kind of and the bass is a LOT more powerful now.

I think what your setup is telling you is that it can't play more bass.

Making the slider to further is like putting a bigger gas pedal in your car.
It won't make the car go any faster.

Dropping pre-amp further will increase the amount the other sliders can go up.

And I know the setup can do it as I have the €30 Tactic3D Alpha as well which is wired, has no surround but also has smaller 40mm drivers when this has bigger stronger neodynium 50mm drivers.
The bass that thing can put out is epic and it can vibrate the entire headset before it goes out of range.

My issue is a pure software limit as the Alpha CAN do -24DB pre-amp.

But after a little more playing at negative values my sound is pretty much perfect now.

66% Crystalizer, 66% Bass Boost, no surround crap as it sounds really hollow in music, Custom EQ with +3DB preamp, and the EQ is set to -6,-6,-15,-21,-15,-18,-18,-15,-12,0 from low freq to high. Sounds like a champ with plenty of bass power and nice sharp highs.
