    Alright heres the scoop, a fair while ago I built a pair of DIY speakers with a pair of 8" woofs and a pair of tweeters
    I picked up from cash converters. The sensitivity rating on the woof is 93 DB and the rating on the tweet is 92 DB so there pretty close to the same, got em working one day and without thinking just had the treble all the way up on the receiver which is a 10 DB boost at 20 KHZ this is the way I left it not thinking about what I was actually doing
    (I was 12 I did not even know what FR meant) So what I am asking is, is it normal for you to have to EQ the high end that much to acheive a flat response or should your tweeters have higher sensitivity than your woofs in the first place. (still only 15 but I know a bit more now)

    You pad the tweeter down to the woofer.
    I am not sure on this, but a resistor on a woofer would effect the damping factor (???).

    David,
    I would say that it's not normal. It's not unusual for a speaker to need a few dB of adjustment (one way or the other) from the treble control or the bass control. But not that much.
