  2. Large signal measurements / how much SPL do you need?

    DIY Speakers and Subs
    I took a few measurements in the main listening position in my setup at various SPL levels to get an idea of how much bass I "need", and how close I am to getting there with low distortion. I'm wondering if folks on the forum have done the same / have SPL numbers with distortion graphs available...
