EQing Equalizing for Sax in Live Performance

Sorry if this has been answered, but what is your EQ setting for sax (i.e., sop, alto, & tenor) in live performance? Do I really need to EQ for sax? In other words, unlike guitar, sax does not seem to have any mid-honks or so.

Thank you in adavance.

The only blanket thing that remains with sax is that a nice gouge at 6K will really make things much more listenable. Ie, less strenuous on the audience. I know lots of sax players who have tonnes of overtones around 6K and yeah...ugh....

Well, I've done live sound for Liebs, Ravi Coltrane, Paquito, among others and didn't feel the need to 'gouge out at 6k'.:cool:

But, then again, I prefer the EAWs that I was using for mains than Mackies...
If only we could all be so lucky.
