  12. How do you check subwoofer response after downloading EQ?

    REW Forum
    So I made a few measurements from 15-200Hz of my room response for only the subwoofer. Next I analyzed results from different REW graphs. Then I generated EQ filters and downloaded them to my AVR. So now what? I would like to see if there are still areas for improvement over REW's predicted...
