    After reading a couple of reviews on SVSubwoofers and around here, I looked around and finally picked up an ART 351 equalizer on Ebay for about $85. The room that I have my HT in now has introduced some nasty peaks into my 20-39CS setup.
    Are there some good default settings to work with before I start tweaking my peaks? Especially the high/low pass filters. Any tips would be helpful.

    1)dont worry about the LP wont affect the range of the input signal into the EQ(assuming you're patching the subwoofer preout of a receiver into the EQ
    2)set the HP to an *eyeballed* 20hz to start.
    3)set the gain to the level that seems to keep the volume of the subwoofer the same when you hit bypass(usually about 75%).
    4)set the 6/12dB switch to 12.
    5)if you already know wehre the peaks are...try moving the slider(s) nearest that freq down a little at a time as your recheck the response.
    that should get you started.
