Correct! I've got a MacBook Pro. Not exactly sure what the sound card is.
But, all I was doing was taking SPL readings at different frequencies. Not sure the sound card would make much of a difference.
If I got a much louder reading at....let's say 60Hz than the rest of the frequencies, I used the eQ.2 to back off the 60 Hz frequency (the adjustments on the eQ2 aren't real fine, so you have to play with them a little bit).
Let's say I found a null at 40Hz, I'd use the eQ2 the same way to boost the vol at that frequency.
Not real scientific. Nor, probably correct based on what I've seen some do.
But, it works for me. I no longer have any boominess. And, everything is smoother, with great integration with the rest of my speakers (my sub has now "disappeared" into my system).
