Is this system worth the price? It seems that this system automatically takes into account placement and room nodes and automatically EQ's the sub! Has anyone used this...seems too good to be true????

I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near Tannhauser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time... like tears in rain.

A BFD and a Radio Shack SPL meter would be a better investment. The device doesn't do too much as is evidenced by their own graphs.

It dose not say in the read, or I missed it.

Might well work but as mentioned above you could definitely do better with the same or less money on a BFD, SPL meter, and a test tone disk.

Looks to me like an automatic version of the Infinity RABOS system, in that it seems to identify the broadest peak, and knock it down.

It may work for that purpose, but it sure doesn't attack the whole low frequency range.
