Let me get back to you on that. I have the front speakers by themselves, but just for my regular positioning. They are Maggies, which means angling them a few degrees differently can significantly change the HF FR at the MLP, since they have quasi-ribbon tweeters a few feet (?) long. And that is my next measuring project: to get measurements for different angles, and choose the preferred. I'm not sure if I want a different HF response than the way it already is, since the current position was chosen gradually some years ago, but REW does show the HF FR at the MLP to be somewhat anemic at a quick glance, but I like the way it sounds. Have to think about it.
I only have REW data for the main sub by itself. Thanks for the reminder though, need to get that for the second one too. I haven't been using the second sub much, but since REW shows everything about the bass is so much better with both subs, I'm back to using two again. You see, the second sub was bought at the cusp of the DVD age, not much LFE out there, and it was chosen for music so doesn't even go to 20Hz (I thought...I think the real
issue is I can't hear much at 20Hz lol). I thought using it with SubEQ HT would cripple the lowest freq capability of the big SVS one, least that's what I was told. I don't see much harm, only a fraction of a dB harm below 25Hz*, but the improvement overall greatly outweighs that with much cleaner and smoother sound. So clean I asked the usual question "where's the bass gone?", but thanks to REW I see there's actually way more
Don't want you guys to do all my graphwork or else I won't learn anything. But thanks for the offer, if you were
Edit: Oh yeah, thanks for the miniDSP info. It's a bit too soon for me to consider one, since I haven't even analyzed my room issues yet, never mind how to fix them. But since you guys were mentioning it...
* and: actually its worst "harm" is only 0.7dB down at 15Hz = essentially no harm, and the effect only starts below 20Hz not 25HzEdited by cfraser - 12/7/13 at 9:03am
