Hopefully and easy question, but how to you measure each individual speaker? Unplug all the connections to the amp minus the one you're measuring? if so, hope to you apply the PEQ? I have unplugged all the connections to the amp except for the center channel, and it does not seem to be applying the EQ settings I generate from REW after I manually enter them.

Excellent, but when I highlight manual EQ 1, then run REW again, the measurements look the same as before. Actually, identical nearly. Is there another setting I'm missing? The only mode that the test signal will come through is "All Stereo", right? The only other ones I can select are "Stereo" and "Direct" but no sound come through the center then.

Thanks! and do you think sending the signals over airplay through the Apple TV would work equally as well? I tried that the other day and it seemed to work fine.
I wouldn't do that. Too many things can go wrong.

Did you study the signal flow charts that I've posted in this thread? Get familiar with them. This will explain why you don't see PEQ changes in the center.

Use the analog out of your Mac and send the signal to one of the analog inputs of the UMC-200. AN 1 L for example. Then simply connect the speaker you want to measure to the L preamp out.
