  1. Guidelines for boosting sub EQ with REW and MiniDSP 2x4 unbalanced

    REW Forum
    If I want to apply some boost to sub EQ to avoid the need to cut everything greatly to the same level (which is my current approach), what guidelines should I follow? I want to do generate auto filters in REW and where should I set max individual filter boost and max overall filter boost...
  2. Boosting low ends with a BFD1124 ?

    Electronic Processing/Equalization Devices
    so i am almost finished building 4 sealed subs and picking up a bfd1124 to help flat the response, but most importantly want to boost the low ends of the sealed subs. i read Wayne's article on minimal eq and hard knee house curve article, but unfortunately much of it was over my head. but i...
  3. EQ boosting?

    REW Forum
    This response is just a little naive. It presumes that the peaks and dips you see on a response curve can be treated alike. Nothing could be further from the truth. The fact is that a room response is a simplification of a complex system of speaker and room dynamics interacting over space, time...
  4. Ported vs Boosting Sealed

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    I recently built 2 SDX 15s in 9.3 cu.ft tuned to 15 hz and based on their size have been wondering.... I have setup these drivers using the RS digital meter and the cal file, only to find some massive peaks, so I picked up the 1124p. Tamed the peaks and am extremely happy with what I have got...
  5. A Question about Boosting

    Electronic Processing/Equalization Devices
    I have opted to boost my very capable sub (Monolith) by +5db at 25Hz and +5db 35Hz to go some way towards countering a room induced dip. I decided to apply these boosts rather than cutting alone because the peaks further up the frequency range were significant and would require large cuts...
  6. Boosting is boosting however you do it?

    REW Forum
    Hi You have your REW response curve up for your sub and it shows a fairly decent curve but with a couple of deep troughs due to room problems. So you boost your sub's overall gain to lift the bottoms of the troughs to your target curve level. Then you cut back the response around the troughs...
