Cool...

Are you referring to the January edition?

Yes I just got it in the mail today.

Hi all, Does anyone know what the Environment Knob does in actual frequency response terms (eg for the LR3/5's, CC3)? I'm running Dirac room correction curves and have a large dip around 300Hz for the front L, R and Center and not sure if I can fix with different Environment settings. Appreciate if anyone has any insight as its easier to know what the controls are actually doing versus random experimenting.

Many thanks!

The controls will have no effect at 300 Hz. They are higher frequency adjustments, but I don't have details -- just based on listening.

Sounds like you might have an SBIR thing happening.

Thanks Roger, I think you are right about the SBIR. I have added two ASC tube traps to the front left and right corners but my speakers sit on a shelf and fairly near the back wall. See pic. The Dirac EQ has corrected the dips but I would rather fix with room treatments if I can (as long as they are simple enough).

I suspect that the most prominent reflection is off the side wall. s a test, find the first reflection point, and put that tube trap at that point to block the reflection. This is all just temporary stuff, so can put it on a chair. See if that affects the response dip. Of course there may also be a reflection from the rear wall, too. Once you find it, then you can plot a strategy.
