With speakers like this, I disagree from experience. My iLoud MTM's (and everyone else's speakers on a desk) will have a midrange bloom and other issues due to the desk bounce. EQ made a huge difference for the better. It's worth experimenting. I use Room EQ Wizard, a UMIK-1, Equalizer APO and PEACE. EQ was designed based on the moving mic RTA measurement, not just a single point in space.Go for corrections only at the fundamental room resonances. In a normal rectangular room there are only three. You can calculate just measuring your room to do it. No need for measurements with mic. Those fundamental room-resonances are totaly independent of where you have put your loudspeakers- its all depending on the room dimensions.
Dont try to compensate for reflections above 80 Hz .
Do you have to much bass in the area 80-500 Hz - use shelving filter instead of correcting reflection peaks. Its called bass-tilt on Genelec.
I dont want to be rude by asking, but I guess that you know the difference between fundamental resonances in a room ( depending only on the room dimensions ) and reflections ( depending on loudspeaker placement in the room, listening position and the distance from loudspeaker to walls, floor, roof ) ?
Red = EQ Off
Blue = EQ On
