REW Sub equalisation adding a room curve

I use a minidsp SHD on a 2.3 system
Revel M126 Mains
SVS PB 2000 x3 subs

My usual calibration involves :
Using the alignment tool in REW to set the delay & then eq flat to 200 hz
Next run Dirac and then introduce a Harman curve through Dirac
This process has been a bit inconsistent with significant bass loss post dirac

So now I switched to using only REW
Use the alignment tool in REW, to set delay, eq flat to 18 - 200 hz
I am planning to next introduce a house curve, a 6 db Harman curve through REW, frequency response between 20 & 80 hz

Have not tried the second process yet, would love to hear what your process is
Thanks
 
Can you put the REW .mdat file of each Front + subwoofers?.
It is simply curious to see the acoustics of the room.
How far away is the main listening point?
Does it have acoustic treatment?

Do not eq to a house curve. Use REW to fix peaks in FR up to about 500 Hz, and leave the higher frequency range as is. This will give you your house curve.

Then use standard tone controls to change the tone balance to taste, depending on the recording.
 
Thanks for the reply
Fix the peaks using auto eq,So that I get a flat response ?
unfortunately on my setup, I do not have tone controls

The room is around 18 x 12x x10 ft, no acoustic treatment done
Listening position is roughly 3m

Fix the peaks below 500 Hz by whatever means you have at hand. Leave the nulls as is and don't change anything above 500 Hz.
 
No Cross over in minidsp SHD , flat eq to 200 hz
Subs crossed over in SVS at 100hz Lt & Rt Sub; Rear Sub at 80 Hz
