  3. Full range target curves

    REW Forum

  7. Can running speakers full range cause damage if they are not truly full range?

    System Setup and Connection

  8. EQ subs with mains running full range

    REW Forum
    in the past I've always ran my 2ch fronts crossed over at around 80hz then use REW and my BFD to get a nice flat in room response.
