EQ for vinyl

Hi

Not sure if this is strictly a Logic thread but any advice gratefully received.

I'm preparing an album for vinyl release. I know I need to temper top/bottom frequencies but can't find a definitive answer re rolling off. For example, at the bottom end, I assume I should have nothing at all below 20hz, but where do I start rolling off, how many dB per octave constitutes a 'gentle rolloff' etc. Also are a few occasional spikes below 20hz at approx -30dB acceptable? The same goes for the top end.

If someone could actually post a typical EQ curve, that would be great.

Thanks in advance

Don’t do anything, the mastering engineer will sort it.
