    How do I Address the Sssssss’s?

    Two fourth order LR's crossing at 2.5Khz. One potential problem is that they're wired in the opposite polarity. I've read two fourth order LR's should be the same polarity. On a positive note. I'm slowly gathering the required gear to go active. Regards, Dan

    How do I Address the Sssssss’s?

    I'll keep my answer very general for now. I've been using REW and a UMIK-1 to implement a house curve with the MiniDSP 2x4HD.

    Soft reminds me of the harman curve. Music 1 catches my eye because as much progress as I've made using REW to customize my house curve I feel I might be still a little bright or harsh in the midrange. Regards, Dan

    I can try that. The one of the many nice things about REW is it has a delay function before taking a measurement. This would allow one to get out of the way. Onto the next topic. Today I’m trying a new filter on my left speaker. 833hz -5.0 and a Q of 2.0. More later. Regards, Dan

    House Curve Progress

    Here's left speaker only with no filters and the current filters. The sub was included with the filters so that explains the sub 100Hz difference. More later. Regards, Dan

    House Curve Progress

    So far the house curve feature has been the perfect solution to get my speakers to 'fit' my room. The 2db curve downwards starting at 1khz took the bulk of the brightness and harshness out of my room. I'm now down to fine tuning. The next step in my journey is to figure out how to address what I...
