So are you saying you had a dip at 80Hz when the bass traps were in, you removed them, re measured and the dip at 80Hz was still there?

No it wasn't there any more after we removed them it was like it was sucking the 80hz. From then on never had them. I have no idea why though by removing them it fixed it

Ok, try and get those measurements done with sub distance as I suggested and lets see what you come up with from your 8802.

Hopefully I can get some time today to look at XTZ and distances but I'm also researching into Bass Traps. After talking to Raplloav my previous bass traps were crap. Doing some research I'll have to look into bass traps that actually have proven data ( that work they way they should work ). But before I invest I will check the XTZ.

Great stuff Frank!
Look into Rockwool and DIY, you will save heaps! Dense rigid Rockwool 4" thick is a good start, however if you want them to work deep down they need to be much more than 4" thick, just double up layers. There are heaps of videos on Youtube how to make them, just search for "DIY bass Traps"

Thanks for that RapalloAV. Will look into watching some of the videos.

Mine doesn't work either. My subwoofers are set at 9.5 feet and 9.2 feet so I decided to change it straight too 2.5 feet and 2.2 feet barely even changed on screen. The REW software can that accept our XTZ mic or do I have to go and buy a separate mic ?

I've just found REW does pick up XTZ mic. Now I have to start leaning how to use that.

I assumed that when I plugged the XTZ into USB I noticed on rew it showed XTZ for soundcard so I was wrong. But on another note I don't know how to use REW I need to sit and read manual.

I started playing around with moving my seats and subs I seemed to get a bit better result. But it's sounds great so I'm done with it. Between Hz especially in subs is very little 2-3db difference that I don't think I will find an audible difference.

With that difference must look pretty flat and you wont get better.
REW is a different animal altogether and if you get hooked you will spend the rest of your days doing nothing but tweaking your system.
If it sounds good sit back and enjoy

Thanks Andy. Just finished watching the Maze Runner is the subs sounds tight and nice. I'm sure I can learn REW and further tweak but I cannot be bothered.
I remember doing the video calibrations with my lumagen and forever I was sitting and tweaking. Wasted a lot of time going in bloody circles.
Sometime when it sounds right or it looks right it's best to leave alone.
