What would be the best way to eq the sub frequency. I have a hump around 40hz and would like to lower that and also bump my frequency a bit between 10hz-15hz. I was looking at the Mic 2200, the MiniDSP and few others. Would the Mic 2200 allow me to tame the hump at 40hz while letting me bump another frequency? If not whats the best way to do this with something that will allow me to do it all the way down to 10hz? I have an Onkyo 709, that does a good job with the MultEQ XT.

I think the general consensious for eq is use it to tame bumps, but try to not raise a null. Rather, fix the null with room treatments or placement.

As far as the mic, why not just get the mic that minidsp offers as an addon accessory that they worked with REW on?

Yes, the Behringer MIC2200 features a two-band parametric that extends down to 10 Hz, so it will do what you’re asking. However, it might make more sense to get a Rane PE17 or Symetrix 551, which would get you the same capability with more filters, for less money.
