I'm actually using 120hz across all 3 speakers, but I'm going into "experimental mode" this afternoon...

    Hello, me again. Don't have a MIDI cable yet so I'm setting the filters of my FBQ1000 manually. I've set REW for a DSP1124P as it seems close to the FBQ1000 for the controls and configuration. The question I have concerns the bandwidth parameter. In REW I have a PA type filter with BW/60 =...
