Also, you'll probably want the allowed minimum value for the center frequency of the PEQs to be 20 Hz. It's currently 40 Hz by default.
Thank you again! I did change the minimum frequency to 20Hz in Tools->Application Options so that whenever I drop a new PEQ filter in, the default is what I need. Nice to have that
I had some success and failure.
First off, here's where I ended up with manual tweaking the subs together and then adjusting distances to integrate with the mains (center channel in this case). Notice the dip near 200Hz. I don't have it well integrated yet and tweaking the distance for both sub groups (together) manually just shifted the dip and made it deeper. If I were doing this manually, I need to go back and work on just the two sub groups together again before trying to integrate with the mains.
Here's what I ended up with using MSO. Wow. I limited MSO to an LS, HS, and 3 PEQ's to work with. Looking at the resulting filters I realized that there was no way, ever, that I'd come up with that on my own. I was really curious what it would look like. To my delight, it looks great!
The subs are blended nicely with each other and they are integrated with the mains perfectly. MSO followed my target curve.
There is a problem with this however that I discovered right away. I was excited about the results and anxious to listen to something familiar and I chose a concert video. This problem is unique to my setup though; my first sub group is up front against the wall, while my second group is right behind the seating. In my manual tweaking, I had purposely kept the volume of the near-field subs low with respect to the front subs. MSO had no such constraints so now I felt every pluck of a bass string. I felt it so much that I couldn't really hear it. It was too much. Luckily, I'm sure I can constrain MSO from adding any gain to that near-field sub group.
Anyway, overall, I'd call it a glorious success. I've just got to work on some constraints for MSO that are particular to my sub positioning and perhaps tame that target curve a bit.
Thank you again for your help
. This is a great tool that worked like a champ for me.
