I've just started getting into measuring frequency responses, but I'm excited to see if I can get better sound out of my equipment. My wallet may not be as excited, however. :spend:

This is my setup:
Epik Sentinel, corner loaded (only option for WAF)
Radioshack digital SPL meter
Behringer UCA202 USB sound card

10-31-09 sub only x-over 80 phase 0.jpg

I ran REW with the sub only, crossed over at 80hz. I see that I have several things going on, and I'm not surprised, because it is in a fairly open living room with lots of walls/openings.

The question is...do you think a BFD 1124P will be effective enough in making a significant difference, or will I need to do something else? I've read a lot about subwoofers/speakers/etc., but I'm pretty new in the PEQ and room treatment arena.

Thanks in advance for any feedback.

Absolutely.

You can imagine how weak you hear the signal at 20Hz when you have a peak from 25Hz-35Hz that is 15dB higher. Bring it down (easy with a BFD) and all of a sudden you hear 20Hz....

Excellent...just ordered one that should arrive by the weekend. I ordered the XLR-RCA cables, but I was haven't a harder time finding a cheap usb-->midi cable. The one that I saw recommended on several of the posts here (Edirol UM-1EX) has been discontinued and I don't want to pay the extra money for one of the few shops that has it. Do you know of another good usb-->midi cable that would work or if any brick and mortar stores would still be carrying the UM-1EX?

Thanks again for the quick help! :)

It's quite simple to enter the filters by hand into the front panel, so it's not a show stopper if you can't find the cable. I've never used the cable method - I can enter filters before you'd have your cable connected. :)
