For whatever reason, I just don't like how Audyssey sets up my room, so I never have the eq turned on. I recently bought a USB mic and I've been playing around with it and realized just how bad my room is. 1 meter measurements for my speakers are good, but at MLP, not so much. I'd like to one day have the entire room treated, but in the meantime, I've been playing around with REW and using EqualizerAPO. If you aren't familiar with EqulizerAPO and you use a HTPC, you might want to check it out. It's an EQ with a ton of options (like infinite parametric EQ filters). You can export the EQ filters from REW into a text file and import them into EQAPO for each individual speaker.
I've tried to find my answer by searching the 17k posts on this thread, but still can't find any help. If someone knows it exists, just let me know and I'll keep digging. What's are the best settings for the EQ in REW for full range? I've used it for my subs and plug those numbers into the iNuke, but for full range it's trickier to me. I'm not sure if I should just shoot for a straight up flat response from 80Hz-20kHz. I know it's all personal preference, but I was just wondering if anyone had experience in making the target level in the EQ more curvy than just flat.
I attached some pics to illustrate an example. One image shows the FR at 1 meter for my left surround speaker, another shows the same speaker at MLP, another shows the predicted curve after about 20 filters added, then I show the actual and predicted on the same image.
Does anyone have any experience with full range EQ on REW? (how should i limit my individual boost, overall boost, etc.)
