    I can't figure out how to put a graph in here, so please bear with my figures. I would appreciate help with a solution to my bass woes. I have a 20-39CS+, and have tried 2 different corner placement options. These measurements are with one port plugged (doesn't really affect the overall FR curve with it out).

    Corrected SPL data:

    Hz left right (corner)

    16 73.5 74

    20 69.5 69.5

    25 68 67.5

    30 72 73

    35 72.5 74

    40 66 60.5*

    45 62 65

    50 60.5* 69.5

    55 74 76.5

    60 80.5* 80*

    65 77.5 79.5

    70 72 69

    75 71 61.5

    80 61.5 70.5

    85 70 73

    90 68.5 71.5

    95 70.5 70

    100 70 71.5

    Now the questions:

    Will I be able to successfully EQ those deep peaks and valleys that I have, or is my room just too strong of a barrier to smooth FR? Should I get the ART EQ or BFD? Or should I simply build a new house (:

    Which placement is better? Left or Right corner? I've tried moving my seating position back, but can't go any further. How screwed am I here?

    Thanks,

    Troy

    Hi Troy,

    I'm sure one of the guys who are really knowledgeable about this topic will jump in and help you soon. I just wanted to offer some encouragement by telling you I've read some BFD posts on this forum where the poster was able to smooth 30-Db peaks! So don't despair, it may be possible to smooth our your FR.

    Good luck!
