Help with DSP Settings for JBL705i


Active Member
Dec 22, 2020
Hi All!

I only know how to use EQ a bit. Total newbie about sound processing. Somehow I got JBL705i. I felt it sound a bit different compared to my other setup or headphone but not much tbh. Anyway, I've been told I should do the required DSP settings in order to get the correct sound. I found a screenshot and there are things that I don't understand.

Can you guys help me with these. Any help is much appreciated, thanks in advance! :)

1: they are disabled
2: enabled but nothing set?
3: this is disabled as well
4: Bypass is green and Enabled but I guess it's working - strange logic! But filters 5 to 8 are disabled.
5: might be about setting 6-7-8 manually?
6: I don't know what it is, and I guess I can't find it in my EQ plugin. I'll need to search for another plugin just for this?
7: why do we have another EQ? What does it mean to sidechain? And does it matter if I add these to the EQ on section 4 or am I totally misunderstanding this?...
8 + 9: these are looking disabled.
