Carving up the house EQ to fix a LAV/Headset Mic 

I cannot count the number of times when I have tuned a room, and later get complaints about the system sounding "thin" later. I return and find that the operator has hacked up the graphic eq to fix a LAV mic.  You are not fixing the problem by doing this. 

A couple of things to try: 

1. Work on the input strip. 

2. We are talking about digital consoles here so put 5 ms delay on the LAV/Headset. In "time" it makes the LAV move back on the stage about 5 feet.   

3. Insert an eq on the Lav mic or Lav Group out.
