I have read the entire post and would like to achieve a more uniform and deeper low end from my subs. I have the analog rs meter, I do not have access to a laptop computer. Am then out of luck with the correction tables?
From one of the first posts on the SVS site FAQ
So find out what your subwoofer(s) are REALLY doing, and add the following numbers as appropriate to your SPL meter readings:
At 10Hz add 20dBs to the meter's readings and at ...
12Hz add 16.5dB
16Hz add 11.5dB
20Hz add 7.5dB
25Hz add 5dB
31.5Hz add 3dB
40Hz add 2.5dB
50Hz add 1.5dB
63Hz add 1.5dB
80Hz add 1.5dB
100Hz add 2dB
125Hz add .5dB
This excerpt is valid for the spl meter I own. Also in this thread they mention equalizers that will adjust at this low frequency. I think that possibly I can save the time and effort of selling my existing sub(s) for a new model and tweak what I already have to achieve a bit lower response. Two equalizers were mentioned a Rane and another brand. If the cost is less than a new sub which it should be that is the avenue to explore I think.
The chart above reads in part,
at 10 hz add 20 db to the meter's readings
Does this mean if the meter is reading a steady 75db as compared to the other speakers it is actually 95db?
Or I have to add 20db at that frequence level?
If I could borrow/rent a lap top, I understand it is a free program that is then loaded with the correction values. Is the RS spl meter then connected to the laptop?
