I'm also thinking about a bigger center speaker to match the Q11's. Something like the KEF bIQ6 C. Would youi guys say that's a major upgrade from the Egg?...
Yes, I think the bigger speaker would sound much better.

Re: My initial readings

Hi,

I've added a picture of the response that I now have.

Sounds a lot better this way with way more transparent sub sound. I could use a little bit more "slam" though. It sounds very balanced, but a bit more punch would be nice. Maybe boost the lower end a bit?...

Re: My initial readings


Thanks. Looks like your fine. There are plenty of severe cuts to go along with the boosts. Actually, that can be just as bad a severe boosts, because severe cuts leave severe peaks between them.

Re the boost at 77 Hz: If that filter did not eliminate the depression, then you should remove it. That one looks like it might be a null.

Re: My initial readings


Can you post a screen shot of the EQ panel (or at least list the filters and parameters), and your response measurement?

Re: My initial readings

Hi,

I've loaded a house curve with a 6 Db. raise at 20 Hz. and 0 at 80 Hz.

I've made measurements without EQ and let REW assign filters.

It's telling me to use 2 12Db. boosts on the behringer... Isn't that a bit much?. I remember that in the past people said never to boost more than 5 Db. on the behringer...

Re: My initial readings


Yes, the REW Help Files includes directions on how to create a house curve file.

Re: My initial readings

Hi,

Do I need to create a house curve file myself?.

All you need to do is load a house curve file. Look for the “House Curve” tab in the “Settings” window.
