Hey Guys, I have a question. How does one account for room gain with Winisd? I would think designing a sub for a room knowing what response you would get in room would be nice so I started messing around a little. Here is what I came up with and the guys in the know please correct me if I am wrong.
Here are my sealed subs in winisd:
Now here is my in room response with no EQ:
Now I added a LT in winisd and here is how it modeled:
I used the power needed to get my max spl limited to 10% THD at 10hz. As you can see it looks just like my in room response.
So here is my question, If I model any other sub including ported should I add the same LT to it to see what it would be in room? This makes sense to me and explains why ported subs always feel more visceral to me but also over the top.
Here was a winisd model of my 4 LLT's with my 190v2's:
Now lets add the LT to simulate my room gain(I wish I took a response graph of these to confirm):
Now you guys can see why LLT's in my room feel like are more visceral than a sealed setup. The sealed setup in room is flat as confirmed by my in room measurements and the LLT even tuned around 13hz has an 8 dB peak in the low teens all the way to 10hz. This is why the DTS10 had a peak down low in my room as well but not as bad because it is not as flat to 12hz by design. So the big question is which is actually a better movie experience? The sealed is much more accurate but the LLT is lots of fun.
