  1. PEQ filter suggestion

    REW Forum
    Im looking for advise on what PEQ filter I need to flatten out the response of my DIY sealed Dayton UM18. I thought ARC was going to take care of it but it did exactly what it is suppose to do and it flattened out the peaks but didn't really change the response of the sub (which I want in this...
  2. Question for John about "Q" definition for PEQ of different HW

    REW Forum
    Hi John, Apologies in advance for the lengthy post. I wrote a software program that makes extensive use of PEQ filters for sub EQ in the modal region. In order for the user's final measurements to match software predictions after running the software and entering calculated filter parameters...
  3. Create REW equalizer setting for Yamaha's YPAO P-EQ

    REW Forum
    Hi! I am currently approximating the 7 band manual P-EQ of my Yamaha RX-A2050 by "eye" and lots of try and error. Would it be possible to create some custom Equalizer setting for REW like miniDSP, nanoAVR, etc so it knows the restrictions and enables the use of automatic response matching...
  4. REW PEQ System Verification

    REW Forum
    I'm trying to verify the PEQ filters created from REW by actually measuring the frequency response after EQ. My sound system is a PC (source) to USB M-Audio Fast Track audio interface to Presonus Ceres powered mini-monitors. I have exported the PEQ filters from REW for use by APO software. I...
  5. Basic PEQ question

    Electronic Processing/Equalization Devices
    Can I use PEQ to lift bass response of a standmount speaker? If yes, what is the limit of this approach? How much increase at lower frequencies (in db) is accoetable? For a speaker with -6db point at 50 hz and -12 db at 32 hz, can I raise 12 db using PEQ for a flat frequency response till 32...
  6. First Graphs - Will a PEQ Help me here?

    REW Forum
    So I think I am getting a handle on taking measurements in REW and I thought I'd give it a shot in the real world. I set my living room 5.1 system up completely manually (tape measure for distances, SPL meter to set all levels at 85 dB, speakers set to Small with crossovers at 80 Hz, Subs (now...
  7. Where to buy a subwoofer PEQ?

    Audio Processing
    I wanted to get a subwoofer peq from elemental designs and they never got them back in stock and then went out of business, who makes one? I'm trying to avoid buying a parts express plate amp to accomplish this. Just a standalone little unit with at least one cut control would do it, just...
  8. Room gain compensation vs PEQ

    when is it better to use room gain compensation instead of PEQs? assuming one has enough PEQs, can't room gain be controlled with PEQs? Having just got my first of hopefully 2 SB13u, i've left the room gain control alone, and done all my tuning using PEQs, but am wondering if I'd be better...
  9. help! My P-EQ has max gain of +3db :(

    REW Forum
    So, took all my measurements for each speaker, and my sub. Awesome. Ran auto eq as suggested with 1/6 smoothing, and removed any gains less than -3 or +3, ensured no really high q's... so far so good! Working on my sub... STUCK. My Sherbourn PT-7030 only allows for gains of up to +3... Any...
  10. REW-generated Biquad EQ vs PEQ for minidsp

    REW Forum
    Hi, I used REW to measure my room and then generate the PEQ filters for minidsp. There are two ways to enter the PEQ settings into minidsp: (a) using the auto-generated biquad filters; or (b) manually enter the {Freq, Boost/Cut, Q} for each PEQ filter into minidsp. My question is: are the two...
  11. Proper use of PEQ for sub?

    Electronic Processing/Equalization Devices
    I'm a newby to sub EQ and have recently learned how to take measurements using REW. The next step for me is to get a PEQ device and learn how to use it. I'm likely to get a miniDSP within the next month to use with my single sub, then possibly add more subs this year. I came across a few...
  12. Trying to understand PEQ and REW

    REW Forum
    Hi guys, I am hoping someone with much more experience in this area could help me out. In the past I have always had Audyssey equipped receivers and have been very happy with them. I am however about to get a new Emotiva UMC-200 in a few days. One of its features is eleven user programmable...

  14. Gear for PEQ & Time delay with 2 subs?

    Electronic Processing/Equalization Devices
    Hello HTSers, I'm in need of some help that I've spent some time looking into, but am still unclear. I am looking to eq 2 seperate subs and need a recommendation for equalization gear. I'm looking for a PEQ that; has 2+ channel output (i'll be using the single sub output from my reciever), and...
  15. MiniDSP 2x4 as 20-band (per ch.) PEQ

    Electronic Processing/Equalization Devices
    Perhaps this is not revolutionary, but I am quite pleased with myself nonetheless :sarcastic: Currently I am experimenting with using a MiniDSP 2x4 with "2-way-advanced" (Parametric EQ) for a combination of equalizing Bose 901 II and room correction, using REW as the source for analysis and the...
  16. PEQ without A/D and D/A converter

    Electronic Processing/Equalization Devices
    I have a FBQ 2496 attached to the woofers in my active speakers. I have a DAC that upsamples the material I play to a higher sample rate. So, I have two different sample rates going through my speakers. Definitely need PEQ for my room, which has a big bump at 45hz and sucks out mid-bass...
  17. PEQ cabling with External Crossover

    REW Forum
    Hello - I have an external ASP crossover with active speakers, each driver having it's own amp (ATI 12 zone). The speakers are three way, full range with no separate sub. I'd like to insert my equalizer into the chain, but only for the part of the ASP that goes to the woofers. I have the...
  18. Behringer deq2496 as subwoofer PEQ

    New Member Introductions
    My first post. I just built a three-subwoofer stack per side using the GR Research SW-12-16FR servo speakers in an open baffle design. Although the servo amps come with defeatable built-in PEQ, I find that its range is not adequate to correct the freq response curves in my room. I have a DEQ...
  19. PEQ software

    Electronic Processing/Equalization Devices
    Has anyone tried the PEQ spreadsheet. It seems to simulate the BFD and without any measurements I can see how the filters affect the response. I have not been successful in using it as it does not show my entire response. http://www.pvconsultants.com/audio/eq/peq.htm
  20. Can I still use my receivers PEQ for the mains and surrounds?

    Electronic Processing/Equalization Devices
    My Yamaha RX-V1400 has a pretty good parametric equalizer built in (YPAO). However it does not do any equalizing for the sub or very low frequencies, hence I am using REW and BFD for this. I will not be doing anything with the mains/surrounds as far as REW and BFD is concerned. So my plan is...
