@thewas_ asked me to have a look at his EQ and run my optimizer.
here are the results:
Score with No EQ: 4.6
For AB comparison the EQed version need to be boosted and the LF Boost may result in a reduced dynamic range.
The initial fitting by @thewas_ is pretty good.
Only minor changes after the optimization resulting a slightly higher score.
Mostly due to smoother PIR and ON which is not easy to do by hand.
the Final gain no EQ vs Optimized EQ is quite decent.

Thanks for @Maiky76 & @thewas
Great EQ , got LS50 since 2012 it is indeed a great improvement via Roon DSP
one question: Some of us have a Subwoofer ( here REL T7i ) to push the low before DSP easy age.
How to integrate SW with this EQ ?
My SW xover is 80 Hz with limited gain, the settings make of course SW too boomy then i dont use first line

How would you take the optimized score and calculate optimized score with sub? Thanks, Maiky.
Bass response on both should be similar depending on the settings, most difference in bass comes from room and placement, was that identical for both?
I went to the shop today to try the new KEF LS50 wireless II, i was pretty impressed by the clarify of the sound and how separation between instruments.
But comparing with the older version, the new one is a big disappointment in bass factor.
im not sure if its because of the speakers being new and needs some time to break in, or the source quality, or EQ setting.....
the only bass option in the setting is "extra bass", couldn't find anything else.
appreciate any help, thanks
Just looked at the German magazine "Stereoplay" measurements of both and actually the 2nd goes even a bit deeper having -3 and -6 dB points at 48 and 43 Hz while for the older its 55 and 47 Hz.
Break in is a myth.so i went to the shop again, with CDs, USD, and bluetooth worked too.
tried my tracks that i played with the previous version of speakers. still i cant feel the bass as much.
i admit the room setup is different, the new version is in small room (with sound observer sheets) , the older version was in very big room (sold out though)
small room should help you feel the bass right?? i really think its the break in period.
still a myth??

@amirm Sorry to bump this old thread. Hopefully it's less boring than talking about burn-in.It can and it does. I don't currently have confidence in what it is showing however. As I test larger speakers, I can better tell how good that metric is. Here is what it looks like for KEF LS50 for example:

The highest order function flattens at about 0.6 meter where I have drawn that arrow. That means from there on we are in far field. Someone less lazy than me can do the math and tell us if this is correct
