May I ask what mic you are using? That dip could be many reasons including a phaze issue with your speakers or another sub if you have a second one. Please let us know what your crossover is set at for all speakers and any other info that you can think of including room dimensions.

i just got a chance to use Earthworks M30 which seems to be a quite professional Mic.

i measuring one main speaker(Front right ) with my only sub. before measuring, i set Xover at 80HZ. and
using stereo mode with XLR input(set to DSP mode, which means my Cary 12 preamp will do the Bass management things such as LP&HP at Xover point). and set my Sub to bypass mode( no LP filter applied).
also before measuring, i use my SPL to balance the main and SUb's sound pressure level to 75DB.

and i tried also that turned my SUB almost 360degree with mointoring the RTA in REW. this 30HZ dip seems so consistantly there. but i didn't move the positon of my sub during my measuring.

i plan to have new round of measurement when i got the electronic calibration file dedicated to this mic. to see any difference. i guess there shall be no critical difference due to w/o calibration file. right?

Before you do any adjustments get the calibration file installed as without it your readings are fairly much useless.

Turn the DSP processing OFF.

You want to determine the baseline response without various additional variables interfering with the behavior.

Please indicate the position and orientation of the subwoofer with respect to the various boundaries, as SBIR may also be a factor.

DSP is the last thing that should be enabled AFTER you physically optimize the setup.

Also, the optimal orientation of the M30 is vertical.
