Awesome improvement. My bad on the waterfall...was looking at where the vertical access was set to about 97dB, so was figuring it was about a 35dB span....but now i see it was more/less around 99dB so close enough!

I'm sure those treatments have made a much more audible improvement than many would believe w/o doing it themselves.

Can you describe the treatments you added?
Jerry,

I should have been clearer. Just started with treatments. I'm sure I'll be adding more now. I wasn't really sure what it would look like in my room and what effect it would have to my ears(anyway). So what I added was I got the Gik Room Kit#1(plus a couple of extra Monster Bass Traps):

(3) 242 Acoustic Panels - These two are placed in the second reflection zone and one behind the center channel(I'm experimenting, I didn't know what to do with the last one).

(4) 244 Bass Traps with FlexRange Technology - Two are place in the first reflection zone and two are kiddie cornered behind the front main channels in the corners.

(3) Monster Bass Trap with FlexRange Technology(range limiters) - These three are between the rear surrounds on the back wall.

Some of this advice came from Gik, some was my playing around. I was told by Gik to get a couple of Soffits for the front corners and I plan to. I just started with this to see the effects. I also am trying to work around the rooms looks and problems. The room is prewired and the audio cable for the front L and R are in the corners blocking perfect placement of the Soffit Bass Traps from floor to ceiling.

I am sure I will be adding and changing more

If anyone lives near Columbia, SC, feel free to PM your phone number if you want a jaw dropping demo.

For the low freq extension the Emotiva Dirac Full version I use will do strange stuff to me like short me a few Hz sometimes! The only difference this time was that I had the subs in always on mode before running Dirac. I will always do that for now one.

You can bet that very few have ever heard a system like my "little" Klipsch setup with the JL F212's! Too many on AVS (outside of this forum obviously) seem to go after SPL and not room acoustics. It is really crazy how folks will chase their tail by sub and speaker upgrade after upgrade without fixing the real problems. Anyways, chasing my tail is how I ended up with my beloved Klipsch Palladium setup (so not all bad and can be fun too), but I have to wonder that my problems with the previous 3 setups I went through was ALL due to acoustics!

Then the other third on the forums want to use inferior and outdated technology like records that will never have the dynamic range of what a well mastered CD can provide and tube amps that can add distortion. Then you got dealers who seem legit, but then try to sell you magical speaker cables and power cords (instead of room treatments which are much cheaper).
