I would EQ down the peaks at 44 and 62 Hz with rather sharp filters, also the peak at 900 Hz, and try to raise the region between 100 and 300 Hz with a wide filter. So 4 filters should do.Moving mic - RTA - periodic pink noise. Left channel (right looks similar).
Why such a high Q value of 7 for the filter at 860?
Thank you for the file. I see that you use multiple high Q filters to get the response- are the "rules" about avoiding steep filters beyond the bass region and staying away from areas of high phase shift just recommendations? Also, you EQ to a flat frequency response - as this is at the listening position should I be creating some slope in the response?
Hello room acoustics wizards,
After some time measuring and working with REW I have managed to get meaningful improvements in the measurements and subjective sound of my two-way speakers- see attached. Space limitations require set up along the long wall of a 22 x 14 foot room, so they are only two feet from the back wall and about 10 feet from me. Within limitations, moving them around does not help these measurements very much. The attached responses represent averages taken from four positions around my left ear location using a UMIK and a fixed stand (the right speaker looks very similar). Note that some of the bass EQ strategy is intended to mimic the analog EQ box that originally came with the speakers (boost at 35 hz plus a subsonic filter),
1. Would a subwoofer help? (possibly add deep extension and fill in a touch more around 80hz)
2. Ever since seeing that ugly 100-300 hz region I stayed away from it and do not EQ. Is this correct?
Thanks very much,
I used 2 of those thick heavy office divider panels behind my head. @ 6 feet high and 6 feet wide with 2 of the panels they are a bit obvious but you could put tapestry over them or a large picture. They can be expensive as new but they do work and come in varying sizes and shapes. If you are on a budget and don't mind buying them used then scope out auctions where they sell for way less than a new price.Any ideas for an absorption panel that does not look ridiculous? Can you cover it with a picture?
