This software is made for all of those who have trouble setting up their subs. It has been developed by Andy C, also member
here. It allows for automatically tweaking the settings of all subwoofers and mains, based on inroom measurements of all individual subs/speakers (multiple positions). The program can be downloaded here
. If the chm file shows up empty, please read this
. The help section can also be found here
. Andy will continue to work on the program and add new features. Opening a .msop file (multi sub optimizer project file) created with a newer version than your own, might not work properly.
I have used it in my own DIY project in which i use 4 subs for a Geddes style multi sub setup. The room is 6x4,2m, well treated for >200Hz but low LF damping due too stiff construction. I had a real hard time getting the subs to play along with each other. All subs have their own dsp channel and amplifier. Just too many degrees of freedom
(gain, delay, high/low pass settings, parametric EQs). Spent countless hours without satisfying result.
After entering all values into my Hypex DSPs, i did a measurement to check the accuracy of the simulation and it turned out quite accurate.
Main listening position simulated and measured (had to move mic in between):
Position 5 (left mic standing at same spot):
I'm very pleased with the results, it worked better for me than doing it by trial and error myself. The LF sounds well controlled now and when needed powerful. And there's much less variation when you walk through the room.
The attached image (multisub_optimizer) shows the amplitude response by the red trace at the main listening position. The four other blue traces are the secondary and tertiary positions
