I’ve never used XTZ. However, the concept will be the same. If the program will accept a house curve file which will create a target curve on the screen, then create one as outlined in the instructions and load it into the program. After that it’s just a matter of EQing response to reasonably track the target.

That was my first thought too, but if you look at Leo's equipment list, it doesn't look like he's using a subwoofer.

I see an SVS SB12-NSD in the list.

You're right. I didn't read close enough. In that case, your original advice is spot on.

As far as I understood XTZ so far is that the system is suggesting PEQ values to achieve a flat Curve.
In your first article about house curves you suggest PEQ values to achieve a curve from a flat response curve. Do you have any suggestion how to set the PEQ to achieve a 'perfect' curve from a flat curve?

Sorry, don’t know what you mean by “perfect curve.”

REW let's you dial in a house curve, then will offer filters to get there. Not sure if XTZ lets you design a target curve like that. But since house curves are about getting a preferred sound, you can just dial in some changes. REW is also a very useful way to visualize what can be done with EQ filters. Then you can transfer those settings to your real EQ.

But can I use the XTZ hardware for REW? I read something about a needed calibration file?

In the meantime I have got a quick and competent answer from XTZ, so I don't rhink I need REW!

We have a "drag" function(drag the curve to what you want) that allow you to create your own curve and then the system show the PEQ setting so its very flexible !!

Anyone on this thread using XTZ PRO II? USB sound card connected, generic windows driver installs. However, XTZ software does not output any sound. Microphone seems to be working as I can see from RTA it's picking external audio but I can't get XTZ to generate any tones for room measurement.

What am I missing? Should be straight forward from what I can tell.

Can someone PLEASE give me a link to where to order this? US source ideally.

I will be using this for my home only, so I don't think I need the advanced version.

I used Craig's link in first post, but it went to website that is in some other language that looks like Viking words.

You do. It is worth the difference. (I have both.)
