I'm not sure in what context those excerpts were derived, but if you change the profile of the output response you always want to re-run your room correction. If you don't you'll end up using an EQ...

With a name like "Concealed" Audio? They're registered in the Bahamas, a notorious haven for those looking to conceal (no pun intended) their identify. Red flags abound. Steer clear.

If your concern is detail than purchasing high-quality gear will provide that. If it's SPL too, than a lot of that same gear will be required. Speakers and subwoofers are akin to the tires on a...

You've apparently swapped a truth for a myth, claims of science notwithstanding.

This is veering the OP's thread of course though, so I'm done debating it. Time to get back on track.
