    Easy.

    On my KRK Rokit speakers there is a knob on the back with HF Level Adjust. With the options of -2db, -1db, 1db and 0db. What does this actually do? I'm getting its to do with the room your using them in?

    Thanks

    found this, not my own words...

    The HF Shelf Switch adjusts the high frequency above 10 kHz in 0.5dB steps from +1 to -2 dB. The HF Level Adjust alters the tweeter level throughout the entire frequency spectrum (above 1.9 kHz) in 0.5dB steps, from +1 to -2 dB. I found that leaving these controls flat worked well in my room. The LF Adjust switch is used to compensate for the low-frequency buildup that can occur when any speaker is placed against a boundary. The three selections offer a -3dB roll-off at 45, 50 or 65 Hz. A single, balanced XLR for input rounds out the back panel.
