Use whatever your EQ is capable of doing. If you're using a parametric that allows you to set Q to 1/12 octave then use it, but if you have a 1/3 octave EQ there's no point in running more than 1/6 octave smoothing
. Well yes, but the question is, which way most accurately measures the room response (pointing strait up or pointing strait ahead).
Neither. You can move the mic position a half inch and get a different result, and the same applies to your listening position, so there's no point in trying to get it 'perfect', because there is no perfect.
