The article discusses the relevance of equalization and dynamics to control audio signal. The equalization is used to adjust and improve the sound of a signal by cutting or increasing a specific frequency as well as the loudness of the speakers. In addition, the use of pink noise will also equalize a sound system to produce frequencies at the same loudness of the volume because the noise is filtered.
