WOW-with a few more replies we should have all the freq covered.  I haven't seen 534.36Hz mentioned yet

I remember an article a couple of years ago about a local church in which the designer had "gotten rid of all the bad freq" in the design.

I wonder what freq he got rid of.

Interesting question (although somewhat silly).

As for me, I quite like 2k5 and 3k15 and very rarely pull them out. 160 to 630 seems to bug me most, but that's likely a product of the rooms in which I'm mixing (possibly a product of rooms modes). Outdoors, 800 is irritating.

3.15k - 4k and sometimes around 6k always kills me. It is very seldom it doesn't get at least a wee notch out.

Everyone knows that in every room, for every style of music, and for every rig your mixing on, a smiley face  :) EQ curve sounds the best.

Anything there is too much of. Although, I tend to be a little sensitive to those upper mids, like 2.5k - 4k, more so, the 2.5k, it's possible there is too much of it some times. I also really hate not having enough of some part of the spectrum. Hear too many mixes completely shot to hell because of the lack of content between 90 and 800. I feel like that is the "power" range in the spectrum.   

Interesting thread, I like it

Assuming the system is tuned right and reasonably flat a la impulse response tuning, 125,  250, 2.5kHz seem to be the faders that see the most action in my experience. On monitor EQ's anything goes.............

I'd say pick your speaker system first, include all its inherent strengths/weaknesses, and you will have your most annoying problems.  For this reason, one man's annoying frequencies are not necessarily another's.
Address this with proper system tuning, channel EQ, compression, de-essing, whatever it takes, and the problem magically goes away.

Depends on system, genre and acoustics. But most often on my rig 160-250 needs a little "touch up" cut, and also 2.5-3.15 can be a little nasty. Often the 160-250 stays as tuned, sometimes some of the 2.5-3.15 cut gets replaced by dynamic EQ or de-essers when the crowd affects the acoustics, when you need to "cut through" without being too nasty. Also depends how much time I have for sound check, many parameters are constantly adjusted during gig.

Smaller line arrays I rather often think need less 3-400, 800 and 2-4k. Just a little touch up can do so much on these systems, even if you often lack "physics" in the rig.
