Apparently, I'm somehow highly favored, having met Turbo in person a number of times. He's good people! Maybe he just doesn't like you :)

I'll suggest moving the asymmetry to 100%+-

Lyle,

I think that your question may have already been answered by that mythical
"Turbo" being that some of us see quoted here but never witness in
person...  If your client can set the asymmetry control to 100 (ie,
100%+/-) and see what the mod monitor thinks then.

As you mentioned, the processor should always be at the transmitter end for
max peak control.  The STL could definitely be messing with your symmetry.
Especially if it is being over-driven itself.  The quality of your STL shot
can also impact mod levels and symmetry...

Thanks, Turbo and Laverne.  Yeah, I agree that the 9200 should be at the
transmitter and I'll see what I can do to get it moved there.  And I'll ask
what the asymmetry control is set at.  Xmtr supposedly isn't capable of
quite that much peak modulation at the power output it's running, 5.2kW, so
maybe some distortion, and I'd rather keep it legal, anyway.

I'm sure the IF transformers in Grandma's cheap old Zenith tube table
radio in my bedroom aren't limiting the AM audio frequency response much :)

The 9200 can create that kind of asymmetry of the pos peak control is
turned up that high and the transmitter can reproduce it.

Two questions for the group:

I have an Orban 9200 at the studio ahead of a Marti STL-10 mono system.
The xmtr hits positive peaks of 140% regularly while negative is tight
at 100% all the time.  Could the STL be messing with the asymetry as I
don't think the 9200 would create that kind of difference.
Interestingly, it's not particularly loud over the air.

I'm also wondering if it would make sense to cut the audio bandwidth in
half from the 9200, say 4.5kHZ instead of 9-ish to stop wasting
modulation on frequencies that almost no receivers except the modulation
monitor can pass?

Remember, I'm an FM guy :)

I installed my first VOLT on an AM just last month - was amazed at the
great sound and really clean.  Positive and Negative were right on
