  12. Low passes, and high passes, and subwoofers (oh my!)

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    This is a subject that confuses the out of me. As I understand it, a high-pass filter attenuates signals below a certain frequency (ie, it cuts the bass) while a low pass filter attenuates frequencies higher than a given value (cuts the mid/treble). It is further my understanding that a...

    REW Forum
    Hi. When I use the equalizer function to suggest filter settings for my digital signal processor, the very low bass under 50 hz is always ignored, even when it should have a raise in amplitude to match the target curve (file attached). Why doesn't it get matched to target curve like the rest of...
