When a few peaks are in the frequency response curve and a few cuts are done to overcome them the overall volume is reduced thus the reason for turning up the amp to compensate for the loss, correct?The reason to reduce a peak is that the room interaction at that frequency demands it. If you have a 15dB peak at 50hz, and you introduce a filter of -15dB at 50Hz of the same bandwidth, the room will bring that frequency back level with the rest of the response. Why would you turn up the amp to compensate?
Just say that you have 3 peaks and needed to cut them 10db each, would that degrade the output signal at the sub at all?Yeah, I guess if the peak(s) were wide enough to modify the overall listening level you would want to bump up the sub amplifier to compensate. Makes sense.
