    With a modeller, Helix in particular, how do you set the DSP D-Contour and HPS on your DXR10 when using as a personal monitor set as a wedge on the floor?

    D-Countour: FOH-Main / Off / Monitor ?
    HPS: 120Hz / 100Hz / Off ?

    I set the D-Contour to Monitor (which reduces bass build up when used as floor monitor) and HPS at 120Hz as there's nothing really interesting going on with guitar tone below that point.

    This worked best for me w/ my Kemper.

    I set it to "Monitor" when it's on the floor, which reduced bass. I don't turn on the bass shelving because low E on guitar is 82.41 Hz. Not sure if that fact really matters here, but whatever -- just setting it to "Monitor" works well for me.

    This is what I do with my Helix.

    Ok, genuine question here - if there's nothing going on below 120Hz, which I have read numerous places, then why would I want or need to cut the speaker at that frequency, or chop it off with a parametric EQ before the speaker? Is this just in case there is something going on in that lower range?

    I tried it all three ways and to my ears it sounded best set that way. No need to overthink it, just try it and see what you like. You might be playing a different genre or like a little more bass going on.

    What I said is there's nothing really interesting...but that can vary based on the style of music and what you're looking for. For my purposes I like a pretty tight low end without boominess. Depending on the guitar and amp model I can get some pretty mushy/boomy low notes particularly on my hollow body Gretsch. So I just cut it off.

    I set them both to off with my AX8 because I have a high pass filter set at 100hz on the AX8.

    With the Kemper I have D-Countour off and HPS at 120Hz.
