What an incredibly detailed response to that question.
I have read your reply and unfortunately, (for me) do not understand what the point is as I am sadly computer illiterate.
Those are pretty graphs however.
I do have a desk top computer, microphone stand, xlr cabling and professional microphone used for performing.
I must assume the microphone is not calibrated.
I do not know whether I have a soundcard in my computer but I assume there is one. It is fully featured.
I have an issue similar to the poster regarding placement and am very interested in your reply but unsure of how to use the information to improve the room deficits.
Do I need to know how to use excel? If so I will not be able to proceed with your information.
The article provided is extensive but I do not see the point/solution and will re read it again.
If you would care to comment on my issue I would appreciate it.
I have two subs, one in the front left corner and one behind the seating area to the right.
I have Audyssey calibration available courtesy of my Marantz AV-8003 processor.
There is a microphone included with the Marantz for Audyssey calibration it has a mini jack.
Perhaps it would be more suitable for the computer use?
The room is 26 x 16 x 8 and is set up with screen at front of long dimension.
Seating is approximately 12 feet back from the screen and centered within the room.
I have set up the sound using a hand held analog sound meter and the Marantz internal test tones and have also utilized Audyssey calibration as well.
Even with boosting the calibrated bass settings to 79 from the 75 level that all other channels are set to, bass is weak.
It is detailed, but not authoritive and certainly not overpowering.
I have played with the phase settings on the second sub behind the seating area.
The front sub I have kept in phase with the mains the second sub i have exact opposite phase to the front.
Here is a list of my stuff.
JVC RS-40 projector
Da-Lite 96 inch Cinema-Vision fixed screen with Pro trim
Marantz AV-8003 processor
Marantz RC-2001 learning remote
Aragon 8008 2 channel amplifier

Klipsch RF-7, RC-64 ii, RS-35, KSW-12
SVS PB 13 Ultra subwoofer
OPPO 103 DVD Blu ray player
Motorola 3416 PVR with 1 TB expander
Rotel RQ 970BX phono pre amp
2 Darbee vision visual presence enhancers
Luxman 4 channel amplifier for multi zone playback
Hafler Equalizer for zone use
Technics 5 pack carousel CD player
Dell desk top computer and screen network music player storage
Lutron Maestro dimmers
GIK acoustic wall treatments 244 and 242 models
Buffalo IR repeater model 350 and IR flashers IR-E1 for home control of audio zones and PVR
Ultra Link cable and wire
I suppose a second SVS Ultra in the opposite front left corner would help even things but I would have thought tohave enough bass energy with the two sub set up.
I would like to use your method to achieve a better overall bass output throughout the listening area.
If you would be so kind as to explain a bit more about it and how to use it?
