I hear the default 700 Hz tone thru the 500hz filter with the band pass control centered. When I switch to the 250 Hz filter the tone remains 700 Hz The signal strength goes to almost 0. To bring the signal strength back, I must tune up the band raising the tone heard at the same time to an unacceptably high level This should not happen if the passband of the two filters is the same.
