correct.

also move the mic around the immediate seating area and compare the responses. this will help know that if they dont differ greatly you can just use the MLP readings to adjust any DSP you may use

Okay, there has been so much discussion on where to point the mic and calibration of 0 degrees or 90 degrees that I just want to follow up and verify that I still have this right. The over all agreed upon methodology for measuring bass in a room using a UMIK is to set the mic at the MLP and point the mic at the ceiling. Is that pretty much accurate?
Yes, for all the reasons @neutro so eloquently posted at the end of his last response

You should be able to sign in(online) at fedex and pick up the sub at the local fedex terminal on your way home if you prefer.

Sorry Hop, that was me causing the confusion. If you go with a UMIK-1 mic from PSA which they get from miniDSP the mic was calibrated to be used in a zero degree application. Meaning pointing directly at what you're measuring, it doesn't mean that you can't have it pointed 90 degrees.


It honestly might not make that big of a difference but if you're trying to measure as accurately as possibly you'd want to do it correctly.


I have a Cross Spectrum mic and if I'm using 90 degrees for taking measurements I load the calibration file for 90 degrees, if I was going to take a measurement at 0 degrees I would load the 0 degree calibration file that came with my mic.
