Will my current equipment be enough, or do I need something new?

LOL! :D

I can tell you that the remote/dongle combo I just posted a couple of posts up will do it. I would think the Harmony would be able to as well.

Can you use hex code with the Harmonys? If so, you...

Waterfall is still set to linear and all graphs should be 15-300hz.

As you can clearly see, your subwoofer is not in the best position with that huge dip at 58hz. I'd say you still have some work...
