    How does the RTO compared to the Fulldrive 2?

    I have a Fulldrive 2 and like it... the problem is that it's midrange hump is too high up in the mids. My guitar and amp push alot of low mids, so the FD2 just doesn't sit right when I kick it on.

    I really like how my OCD (v4) kicks in the midrange. I'm looking for something with more compression to compliment it.

    It has more compression for sure. It reminds me of a SD9 Maxon but darker and more compressed. I think it needs to be played loud to sound it's best. Hope that helps.

    By darker do you mean it's mid spike pushes lower in the midrange than the SD9?

    I guess you could describe it that way.
