Hey guys I did my first tone test using an analog rs meter using hsu sub cd.

I used the compensation chart and this is what I got . What do you guys think?


16hz-91.5

20hz-91.5

25hz-87

31.5hz-83

40hz-85.5

50hz-85.5

63hz-89.5

80hz-82.5

100hz-78

125hz-75

160hz-81.5

200hz-87.5

250hz-86.5


Energy Rc10 plugged and hsu 2.3 max ext using 80 hz crossover

How far is the sub from the wall? Could be sbir. Moving the sub farther from the wall and crossing low enough might work just fine.


Or could be a modal null, which just sucks. Literally.

Thanks for responding, I noticed that plugged rc 10 did lose some mids but without them the sound was a lil on the blurry side due to wall resonance, I think I might save up and look into hsu's mid bass sub, I think it covers 50-120hz. What you guys think?

Sub is around 4 inches away from front wall

The problem with using 1/3 octave test tones is that's only a "spot check" at those few select frequencies, which misses most of the detail. The correct way to do this is with room measuring software. That gives all the details, and also shows time-based problems. Here's my standard list of room measuring links:

Room EQ Wizard, Windows and Linux and Mac OSX 10.4+, Freeware
ETF, Windows, $150
FuzzMeasure, Mac, $150
Room Measuring Primer
Comparison of Ten Measuring Microphones


If you have no easy way to connect a computer to your system, this method is second-best:

Test Tone CD
