Well, what I am getting at is would it sound better in the system with the hump smoothed out to match the rest of the frequency response. Being that it is so low it may never be noticed, or it may be beneficial since I am mostly HT? I just have not seen anybody elses graphs with this issue. Not sure what to do about it

I wish I could close some doors but being its in the living room that cant happen. Only open hallway to kitchen in there.

The hump at 10Hz is unusual. If not caused by some sort of mechanical vibration in your home, then maybe it is a defective mic. I am unaware of many subs that would be causing that hump. Can you actually hear that something is amiss? Maybe you should ask your question to MiniDSP support. No one here seems to have an answer for you here.

Yeah you would think the mic is at fault. But lookl at these I did in my bedroom which I can close the door and seal it off. The hump goes away. Open the door and it comes back. Weird haha

Red line is doors open
Black line doors closed

These are unsmoothed measurements

Maybe a mechanical noise somewhere? If you can't hear it, I wouldn't worry.

Almost looks like your door is acting like a port for your room tuned to that frequency. Though it's kind of ugly what it's doing to the rest of the FR...

Guys, I can't see how to open the UMIK-1 up, what am I missing? Sorry for the question, just very curious.
Thanks

Look at the end of the U!IK-1, where the USB cable plugs in. The whole end of the mic simply un-screws. There are two small holes along the edge of the removable end. If you use a small pointed device like a paper clip or push pin, you can use these holes to help rotate the end out far enough so that you can finish removing the end with your fingers.

Once the end us unscrewed, gently pull the end away from the case. The PCB is attached to the end. Several wires extend from the other end of the PCB up into the mic barrel. Be very careful not to pull too hard and damage the wires.
