I really like how the low end is not boosted past 160-170Hz. Sounds more natural to me and prevents male voices from sounding too deep or "chesty".
Lyngdorf informed me that they will provide an update to RoomPerfect that probably will fix the "<30Hz" issue. This is great news!
I suppose it may be similar to the pre-EQ functionality they have provided in the new TDAI-3400.
The voicing tool in the MP-50 is really great, but for the <30Hz issue I think it is not optimal. First it cannot fully compensate for the loss below 20Hz, or at least I never managed to do that. Second, and more importantly in my case, it is a global adjustment and that is not optimal in my current setup with 4 individually calibrated subs on aux 1-4: In my case, RP applies too much attenuation <35Hz mainly to my two front corner subs, but much less so to the rear subs (the reason probably being a modal dip/peak that only affects my front subs and that affects how RP calculates the target curve for affected channels). So global adjustment does not work that well...
So I just tried what might seem as a bit strange workaround (in anticipation of the new RP version): I first set up my front corner subs in "sealed mode" which causes about 9dB lower output at 16Hz, then I ran RP (and measured and confirmed the usual attenuation below about 35 Hz). Then I reconfigured the front subs as being in ported "extended" mode, but did not re-run RP after that.
The end result after RP are shown in the attached graphs (before and after reconfiguring the front subs). The first graph shows my left front channel (main+left front sub). The second graph shows the impact of the frontsub reconfig on the LFE. In this case I got a lot more LF for music (front channels) and a bit more on the LFE-channel. Just what I wanted :-) This is the important point: I cannot achieve this with voicings.
For those of you with SVS ported subs with different modes (sealed, extended, ported), you may want to try this, although of course I have no idea how your results will measure and sound like. Maybe I was just lucky... but in my case the end result is simply GREAT and I can happily live with this setup! Now I get great integration with mains, superb and tight LF down to 13 Hz +/-3dB for both mains and LFE. Without external DSP.
