The house curve makes the volume level high in relationship to the crossover point.
For instance, crossover at 60hz, using REW "Use Subwoofer to Check/Set Levels" to set sub level at 75dB...The SPL at 60hz ends up at 66dB...
With 24dB/oct, would I set the sub level using a 60hz tone only, and push that SPL to, say, 72dB or so? But would that make the lower frequencies unreasonably loud?

BTW, Subs EQ'd as one, with a Mini-DSP delay used for the rear sub..

Thanks all!

Never use a tone at the crossover frequency for setting levels, because it will be attenuated compared to the rest of the frequency range. Use a tone a at least 2/3 octave or so lower. Also, don’t choose a tone at a frequency that’s a known peak. Really, it might be best to use a broadband pink noise signal or setting the sub level.
