As with any room correction system and subs, the best approach is to get the sub response as smooth as possible prior to running the RC system. To asses the pre-RC state of your bass, you need a...

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...

I understand all that, and don't have an explanation why it isn't working. Are you saying you are not willing to get standard balanced cables to resolve your issue, or am I misunderstanding you?

That is not a standard balanced cable. Clearly it was meant for a balanced to single-ended conversion. Since you can't get any output to your subs, I recommend you purchase conventional balanced...

I normally buy from Monoprice. Good cables at a reasonable price. Strange that both ends would be male. My pre-pro uses male, but my XPA-7 uses female.

Good that the speakers are close to the same level. +/- 1dB is certainly within the tolerance and I wouldn't adjust those values.

Regarding the hot sub. This doesn't seem to be correct. Did you...

Will XT32 help what? It will create more effective filters for the low end, which might smooth out the frequency response somewhat, although yours is already pretty good. Will it improve bass...
