Re: measurement gives too much bass?

With the ASIO Driver the 'reference' output can be used as the other output channel.

Re: measurement gives too much bass?

For a second ASIO output on the latest REW versions check the box below the main output on the Measure dialog, that enables the selection of the second channel.

May also want to reduce your sweep level, using a full scale sweep doesn't leave any margin if there is any gain along the path. Also safest sticking to single sweeps as mentioned above.

Re: measurement gives too much bass?

okay, took a while, but I did 3 more measurements.

Settings included.

There was an indicated headroom of 7.7dB during the loudest measurement.

In the meantime I set up 4 limp mass absorbers, 2 tuned to ~66Hz, the other 2 to ~83Hz. They aren´t mounted in the most effective spots yet, but I can already see a slight improvement at 83 and 132Hz. Please confirm, when we´re already at it

Nothing else was changed in the set-up or the options menu. The huge 50Hz peak is a bit lower than before, probably because the SPL was reduced by 4 dB and the door wasn´t rattling that much. In total, the graph still isn´t nearly as flat as it was in the first measurements. Could it be that the first ones were simply off, due to whatever reasons I can´t explain?


e: I also did a run-through at 44,1kHz, just to check if it´s got any effect. Nope, it doesn´t
