No guarantees can be made I understand this but for the most part I understand you are saying I’m good to go?
I'm only saying that I'd be willing to accept the risk and play it on my system at my normal listening level, but I know your system pretty well from our PMs and you probably have even more headroom than me.

Thank you sir! I’ll give it a go what’s the worst that can happen!?

BEQ is the best upgrade I’ve done to my theater. That includes Crowson’s! Thanks again for your hard work!

My wife just got the 5 movie Jurassic blu ray collection. I see that there is a beq for the dts-HD for the first movie, but the rest of the beqs are for 4k. Any chance on getting beq for the blu Ray's, or in this instance would the Dts:x beq work?

Figured its best practice not to share beqs between 4k and blu ray.

Aron, what about Pearl Harbour ?

I don’t suppose you got Red Tails too?
(Would love the german edition, as it has Auro 3D, but i guess that is a long shot)

Jurassic World has been checked and is safe to use. Fallen Kingdom has the DTS:X track on the BR. The other 3 haven't been checked yet but my guess is that they're safe to use since they're all DTS-HD MA 7.1 and the BEQ is of a DTS:X track with them released in a similar time frame. My guess is that they're the same or very similar. So with that info I'd use them but it's your call.

I think it is safe to assume where in the movie the aerial combats are, judged by the spectrum colours, LOL.

I didn't get around to this one last weekend (for May the fourth), and this weekend was also all booked up, so I'm requesting an update for this one (so that I can get a proper viewing in this time)

Are you relatively new to BEQ? Only reason I ask is that is kind of common at first if your system is tuned for the average filtered mix out there. What other BEQs have you tried that weren't too much?

I have watched 10-12 movies with BEQ. I have loved all of them except Split. The end of the movie had kind of a continuous rumble that was too distracting.

There have been a few for me also where BEQ was just too much resulting in bloated or boomy bass - the ones I recently recall are Bohemian Rasphody and Ralph Breaks the Internet. When this occurs a push of the MiniDSP remote button removes BEQ settings and restores my defaults.

Most titles I’ve BEQd have been very well executed with great results on my system, which has been tuned extensively with proper placement, bass traps, Audyssey, MiniDSP, REW, etc for fairly flat impactful bass response. Can’t say thank you enough for those doing the hard work on this!

However, I am fairly selective in what gets BEQd and look closely at the values, curves and images. If the BEQ doesn’t seem to result in relatively flat bass extension (it has significant rise or elevated peaks) I typically won’t apply it. I also don’t typically apply it to movies which already have significant extension.

I’m hoping it’s not the intent or a current trend to just go for maximum output by unnaturally boosting overall bass levels; there are personal preference house curves for that. Nice flat extension to restore rolled off bass seems to work the best in my room.

I'll chime in on the current discussion.

I have also found a few BEQs to be a little overwhelming, mostly on films with little bass content (content, not necessarily extension) to begin with. I am still running my subs almost as hot as I did before BEQ (roughly 15dB), but have recently turned them all down by 3dB and still feel that BEQ can be a bit much at times.

Just for example; The Mule was way over the top...almost zero bass in most of the film, yet slamming car doors just about shot me out of my seat! Dragged Across Concrete was very similar to The Mule in that regard. Alternately, Aquaman which already has great extension sounded great with BEQ and was definitely improved, but not over the top at all IMO.

Watched Unbreakable, Split and Glass the other weekend and the first two were very much improved by BEQ...can't comment on Glass since I never watched it without BEQ, but it sounded good with it.

I probably just need to take the time to re-calibrate everything to get it sounding better, I just haven't had the motivation lately to re-do it all.

^^^ I agree there are definitely some that don't have much bass that end up with some kind of foolish stuff getting boosted, like The Mule and Dragged Across Concrete that you mention. It doesn't really bother me, though, because most are amazing improvements, and I don't pre-test each one, I just watch them.

I think it's hard to be be surprised that BEQ + that much of a house curve is too much

Don't get me wrong Aron, I completely appreciate all the hard work you and others do in this thread to bring BEQ to the masses! I'll shrug off the few-and-far-between anomalies and have a big, silly grin on my face 99% of the time I'm using it.

Oh, don't worry, I know you well enough to know you didn't mean anything negative by it!

Imo, that episode had more intense bass than any episode I can remember.

I assume that the goal of the BEQ filters are to make it so that all of the peaks are at approximately the same level. I guess with some content, this can be overwhelming if the really low stuff is never meant to be that hot. The benefits of BEQ are definitely worth the occasional movie that is too hot.

My apologies to everyone (especially @3ll3d00d ) for continuing to post about my failures, but I think I am inching closer to success.

For the first time I don't get any error messages when clicking on the repo refresh button in the "Merge Minidsp Config" so I figure that's a big win.

Next I entered my .xml file where I have my default house curve settings saved.

However, after doing this I see that I have 0 out of 745 files processed so obviously I'm still missing something. I swear I am doing my best to follow all the steps exactly how they are instructed but I'm sooooo low when it comes to computers that it's still easy for me to screw it up.







Here are preferences in case that's the issue:
