    Can I plot the frequency response of my sub using DVE or do I have to get some other test disk.

    You'll most likely need another disk because DVE does sweeps and it makes it hard to get accurate readings. If you want to plot your subs FR use these.

    Also they have a spreadsheet that you can download here that will compensate for the Rat shack meter.

    Also how come you titled your thread calibrating a sub??

    Plus, if you do a search here, the sub (low freq) test tones on DVE are encoded wrong on the disc. Better to use Avia, the S&V disc, or the older VE for sub level calibration.
