Then toe them OUT.
You'd be surprised at the difference.
I was!

Waterfall or spectrogram better to evaluate need for bass traps.
Post your room layout; mdat file would be helpful, too.

Does EDT and RT have any significance below <100 Hz or should I stick exclusively to waterfall and spectrogram?

Do you have any form of equalization available?

. Yes, can import rew into the xmc-1, and also have dirac, both make a significant difference when applied. Want to make as many improvements as possible first. Just picked up a small sub from my son, going to play with that, better to seperate or stack? Thanks

You have to try it and see.
If it were easy, we wouldn't all be here.

Staked the sub, sounds phenomenal, prophylactic improvement, rew results don't change.?. Uneven frequency responses seem to me to extend far beoyond sub range, therefore hoping room treatments do the trick. Will work on second sub positioning to see if that helps.?

Sorry, but I have no idea what you just said.
Yes, your frequency response is very uneven. It may be your speakers, it may be your room. A hundred bass traps won't help that.
The green graph is a real improvement over the red. EQ?
However, your decay is HORRIBLE!

You need sound absorption of all kinds everywhere. Start with every pillow you have in the house. Fill the room with them. Run REW again and see if there's a difference.

Yess that was post equalization. Stacked my subs, not staked. To my ears, everytime I change something it sounds better, thats why I trust the graphs. Rigid, old style, thick, drywall with dead space insulation. Probably ultra reflective. Going to start building broadband absorbers if that sounds like the best approach? Please, lkeep the suggestions coming
