Your first and last subwoofer graphs are set to Linear. Before posting, switch that back to Logarithmic by clicking the Freq. Axis button in the upper right.
Is there any smoothing applied to the subwoofer graphs?
The room drawing would be more helpful if you would include speaker and MLP locations.
Hey Alan, I responded to your comments in the order that you posed them.
I had forgotten that my Dynamic EQ was turned on in the Marantz I use, so excellent eye there.
As to your other remarks, I just overlooked it this time but I'll be sure to remember about keeping them logarithmic, and i'll make those other changes you suggested to any future screencaps that i post. I guess I still have a lot brushing up to before i can use REW as efficiently as I would like to.
2. No, there was no smoothing done to any of the subwoofer graphs i posted; i remembered from the video on the OP's 1st post that smoothing a subwoofer graph was pretty much cheating and that would have defeated my whole purpose which was to try and figure out how to better my system. It's also why I left the full freq. graph untouched as well, but now I know better and will adjust those for 1/6 smoothing in the future.
3. Thanks for the tips on using REW, and for the info on full range measurements, ill try to put them all to good use. And DropBox it shall be, once i get an acct. set up i'll share some of of my .mdat files for people to peruse in greater detail.
Lastly, I attached an updated version of the room layout pic from my last post to specify where the MLP and spkrs/subs are set up in the room. If you want a greater level of detail then you can reference my post (#219 on this page further up) - I gave some pics of the room in that post that will provide much more specificity of how it is all laid out then my simple pic will show.
I just got my final 2 Gik panels today to finish up with the room treatment I planned out, and on April 10 i have an AV calibrator coming in to do my LG C9, and also to look at the audio half of my system in greater detail so that potentially more improvements can be made on it.
I'm happy with the progress I've made so far and it's in no small part due to the awesome people that frequent these forums. I shall leave now with these words of inspiration from a great show: "This is the way..."
