Cut-Only Equalizer. Term used to describe graphic equalizers designed only for attenuation. (Also referred to as notch equalizers, or band-reject equalizers). Usually applied to active designs. The flat (0 dB) position locates all sliders at the top of the front panel. Comprised only of notch filters (normally spaced at 1/3-octave intervals), all controls start at 0 dB and reduce the signal on a band-by-band basis. Used only in permanent sound systems. Proponents of cut-only philosophy argue that boosting runs the risk of reducing system headroom.
