EQ settings here:

SSB: -16, -16, -6, 0, 0, +3,  +5,  -6

CW:  -16,  -3,  0, 0, 0, -6, -10, -12

SSB setting are designed to roll off low frequency QRM,
provide some "presence" in the 1200-2800 Hz range essential
for intelligibility and roll off high frequency hiss, noise
and QRM.

Those who like "full range" audio (ESSB QRM generators) will
be appalled at the low frequency cut but it makes a big
improvement in intelligibility in most conditions.  Audio at
100 Hz and below is absolutely not needed for communication.

CW Settings are designed to roll off outside my CW listening
range.  My "pitch" is 460 Hz so I keep 200 - 800 Hz flat and
cut above/below a 600-700 Hz passband.  If one is using a
higher "pitch" it would be worthwhile changing the 1600 Hz
band from -6 to 0.

When I first got my K3, I was used to a FT1000D and had the SP5

the
second input on the SP5 and switched back and forth between the
FT1000D and
the K3, making equalizer adjustments to the K3 as I did so.  Finally I
felt
I had the K3 sounding like a FT-1000D.  My friend came over and I made
him
turn around so he could not see which radio he was listening to...At that
point when I switched from one radio to the other, he could not tell
which
was which.  Of course he grumbled that you shouldn't have to make
changes to
a new radio to get it to sound good...but I just laughed...  The
beauty of
the K3 is having the ability to do what you want, and adjusting the
sound to
personal taste is only one feature!  73, Greg-N4CC
