What Jerry said really. But let's see the waterfalls. FR is only one of the parameters we are interested in. Time domain is possibly even more important (well it is to me anyway). Let's see the waterfalls first.
I also agree with Jerry's suggested operating logistics: start by getting one row as good as possible. Then measure the other rows and see if they are acceptable. If they are, then you may decide to leave it at that, always ensuring you sit in the great row. All this is tied together IMO - I think you have been trying to do too many things at once - let's take it a step at a time (walk before run, as Jerry put it). Show us your waterfalls of the R+L+Subs and we'll go from there. They may be great (although I am betting they will show quite a bit of ringing at the bottom end). If they are less than great, then we need to decide the next step. Personally, I would rather have less quantity and more quality if I had to trade one against the other. Nice tight bass is more satisfying to me than bass that is louder or deeper but also boomy as hell. Depending on what the new measurements and graphs show, we can decide the next step. I suspect this will be to decide on one row and try to optimise for that.
We may also need to call on the Grandmaster PlacementMeister, Sanjay to help with placement suggestions, if necessary.
Ok all sounding good Keith, lets take it slowly I like that, one step at a time..... For me the middle row is the most important, then the "worst one" the back row,,,oh dear I wish the front was my second best but everyone seems to like the back row second best.
OK - middle row is the one to optimise initially then. The back row is never going to sound brilliant, IMO, because it is just too hard up against the back wall. But let's see what result we can get for the middle row before worrying about the other two.
Do we follow the XT32 mic placements, ear height, 2' off the back of a seat and pointing to the ceiling, I didn't see reference to this?
I would follow the standard mic placements for now. Ear height, regular pattern, at least 1 foot of back of seat, or raised above back of seat if that isn't possible, even if at expense of ear height (so long as it isn’t ridiculous). If you need a refresher, go to the 101 linked in my sig,
With REW you mean? Makes no difference if you use HDMI or 'legacy' for the measurements. HDMI is just easier that's all.
That is correct. In the REW prefs screen.
