SM7b switches... which is which?

I just had one show up used, and the manual doesnt tell which switch is which (lol) and I dont have a preamp here to check it out with so I'm just curious. When you hold it where it says Shure at the bottom, one switch has the white line at the top, the other at the bottom. I want to set it flat. Which is flat, top or bottom?

Also, whats the alignment line at the top? Just something to help them put it together right?

If you have one, how do you find yourself EQ'ing it?

Thanks
Paul

If you flick the switches, you will see that it changes "the alignment line" as you called it at the top, unless it has worn out.
Bass rolloff on the left, mid boost on the right. Flat is left switch up, right switch down which I guess you already have it set to or you would see the graphical representation of the EQ curve.
