Don, I knew you didn't imply I should use all 24 filters as it makes common sense not to use what you don't need.
There is the exact problem.

Most people do not know what they don't need.  They think that "more is better".

I have actually heard people tell me (back in the day) that my graphics were wrong because I SHOULD adjust every filter to either a boost or a cut, that is the reason they are there-to be adjusted, and if it was set at "0", then that freq would nto be there.

Wellllll   OK then.

I amazes me what some people think.

When "inexpensive" (under $1,000.00) 1/3 octave LED display RTA's became available, I watched more than one band "engineer" constantly adjusting their 1/3 octave graphics to maintain a "flat" display for the entire performance.  These were all club bands, but as you can imagine the results were horrible.  I learned quickly to not say anything.  I have yet to see any music that reads flat on an RTA.  I'm not sure I want too.
