Hi Guys,
I've had a BFD for a while now which I've used to eq my two subs (15" Jamo and 10" B&W). Up until now I've done it by hand using a sound metre and test tone CD. Last night was the first time I tryed REW and boy, was I impressed how much time it saved over the manual approach!

Anyway, here is my first REW graph with subs and mains (B&W 683's X @ 60Hz). The BFD is inline with my previous hand programmed cuts. I would really appreciate any suggestions to smooth things out a bit more.

Thanks,

Actually, I don't think it needs much of anything more done to it.

When you measure with REW, set a target of 75dBSPL. This involves setting the listening position to 75dB when running the Check Levels routine, and then running Calibrate routine and matching the REW SPL meter to the real SPL meters 75dB.

Thanks Brucek, I really appreciate you taking the time to reply. Also, thanks for the tip on how to calibrate to 75dB I wasn't sure why the graph seemed high.

Regards,
Stephen
