Here it is.

Hmm, looks like the mains are running full range. There’s no evidence of the 80 Hz crossover reducing bass response even a little bit.

Hi wayne,

I'm not sure what you mean by raise the target?.

Wayne,

You're right. This measurement was taken with the mains at full range.

The Target Curve is the blue-green line that traces the response of the subwoofer crossover. Typically it sits at 75 dB, but it can be adjusted up or down. Look for the “Target Settings” icon on the left side of the screen.

Re: My initial readings

Ok, will do.

It's back to the drawingboard then. I was wondering though, when creating filters, do you guys let REW calculate the filters, or do you just create them manually?. Is there a smarter way to get the right filters?, like using the spectral decay plot?.

Re: My initial readings

You'll find that most people let REW create them, then tweak from there, sometimes eliminating a few entirely...

Don't worry... nothing new here, I've already made that mistake. Trust me.

REW V5 provides a predicted waterfall plot that updates live as you adjust filter settings, that can be useful if trying to target a specific resonance. The V5 filter assignment and optimisation algorithms are also more powerful than V4.

Re: My initial readings

Ok,

I'll install the latest version tonight.

One more question before I begin filtering: When I want to introduce a house curve, should I start differently?. Does it take another approach?.

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

Re: My initial readings

Hi,

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