Here are my latest ARC results. I think my problem is in low frequency area, if you see my charts, the sub really drops off at about 50Hz. Moving the sub and/or room treatment are not the options.
"dmusoke": I think I have found one SVS AS-EQ1, but have not finalized with the seller, I might get it. Would that really help?
I appreciate all the input and advice. I am just too frustrated. With all this equipment such lousy sound. I need help.
Your charts, with the exception of your sub, look very good. You are missing out on a lot of LFE between 40 Hz and 90 Hz which is, more than likely, the reason why your bass is so weak. Your sub is only showing good low frequency response from about 28 Hz to 40 Hz. After 40 Hz, your sub is tanking and not coming back to life again until about 90 Hz. Since moving your sub is really not an option, then you would have to try something like the SVS AS-EQ1 to try to eliminate the null. However, I am not a fan of trying to use EQ to fix that kind of a problem. EQ should really be used to cut peaks not try to fix nulls especially if you have to apply a lot of boost to fix the problem which looks like is what you will need to do. To fix your problem, you really need to move your sub to a different location. That's really only true way to deal with your sub's issue. You can try a second sub; but, before you do, try moving your current sub to the location where you would place your second sub and see what your sub's frequency response looks like there. I always caution with getting a second, third, fourth, etc.. sub when your sub locations have limits because it's possible you could get a second sub and your sub's chart could look worse because the subs could be canceling each other out. If that happens, then the only way to fix that is to move your subs around. So, if you do have another location that you can move your sub to, I strongly suggest you try that first. It's possible that you just need to move your sub a few inches to see a big difference in your chart. So, I suggest that you work with what you have as much as possible before spending additional money because spending additional money may still not get you what you are looking for. Remember, when it comes to the speakers and subs, it's all about LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION. EQ is only used as icing on the cake.
BTW, if you could post your Target View and your speaker trims that ARC set, that would be helpful too.
