In addition to using something for your before/after measurements (REW/ETF/Etc)- it might also be neat to use some real time Analyzer software - feeding it with the output of your preamp - I've seen posts where someone does this to watch the 'source' so they can visually confirm bass heavy/weak recordings.

Are you a PC or Mac user?
PC user, though must admit that often enough it seems as though the pc is using me! Using REW has been trying enough for me.

Re: Bass traps

Hang in there - you'll get it. It's worth the effort.

As for the RTA, it makes your life SO much easier when trying to find just the right place for seating/subs.

Re: Bass traps

The traps are ready and I have purchased a new external soundcard. Unfortunately am too busy with work and a hundred other things that need taking care of and so have had no time to even listen to a few songs to see if I hear a difference. With a lot of luck I may have a couple of days off soon and may find the time to do some measurements. Will post all results here.

Re: Bass traps

Finally have some measurements. Played around with REW this morning and set some filters on the BFD, the response is ok and the filters were set with the traps in room. I then removed the traps and took some more measurements leaving the filters engaged. I realsie that I should have also taken measurements without any filters and with and without the traps, something to do at a later date. Here are the results, the first two attachments are the filtered response withe the traps, the next two are without the traps.
