Graphs; Recommendations? House curve?

2013 Views 12 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  brucek
Hello again,

Set up my BFD today and would like some input. Here is what I started with:

Front subs:

Rear sub:

Through moderate low boosting (I know it's usually not recommended, but the concensus seems to be that it's okay if it actually helps), I was able to get it truly flat:

Front result:

Rear result:

Now, as most will agree, it sounds lacking. Should I apply a house curve? Is my boosting okay, given the graphs to show the result? Both amps are at only 1/2 volume, so headroom should be okay? Please advise.



P.S. - I calibrated the RS digital SPL meter in REW, but did not load the correction file. Is this accurate (being I compensated it in REW), or will I have to re-run it with the correction file loaded?

Thanks for the info. I guess what I'm asking is this. Once I load the calibration file and apply windows, I will likely start over. What type of curve am I after? Should I follow the original blue target line or the black SPL calibration line? Does this mean that there is already a house curve built into my "after" graph (since I didn't use the .cal file)?

Sorry for so many questions, just want to get this right,

IMO simply equalizing to a non calibrated mic is not getting anywhere near anything appreciable to a house curve. The difference is way to small.
