I thought it might be interesting to get an idea of how much "max correction boost" AL users configure for their filter.
Of course no answer is right, but some AL users start out with rooms having fairly good acoustics, and some of us (like me) have very challenging rooms, where it is difficult to lower the boost while maintaining a smooth frequency response.

I'm assuming that higher max boost levels correlate acoustically to a less friendly room.

Also, if you've compared filters with higher boost to lower boosts, do you still prefer the lower boosts even though the frequency variations may be of greater amounts?

More boost can also correlate with gain differences in a setup with digital xo or a deviation between the target an the speakers’ round off. In most instances the correction window will keep the boost level in check when it comes to dip boosting. I regard this setting as one of many tweaks to get the desired result.
