    I am looking for some feedback from those with more exp than me. My sub is hooked up via the speaker level connection. The x-over is at 80hz for this set. The peak at 126 MIGHT be an error on my part. With a few different sets taken...that's the only 126 peak I found.

    My sense is that I need to take my sub's volume down a tad for better blending with the mains. I don't have a BFD, but am wondering if I should bother.

    Any comments appreciated.

    Here is the complete data according to the chart I grabbed of Sonnie's site (Sonnie/Ken....you guys rock). It looks like I have a consistent hump (as opposed to a sharp peak) from about 28-90hz...this is why I was thinking all I may need is to decrease the sub's volume for a better response. Sorry if the question seems basic. I'm new when it comes to interprating the SPLs like this. :b I used to use the the LFE, set it all to small, and 75 and you're done. I'll be experimenting more when time allows, but am wondering if I can get some initial impressions.
