Okay, so I've got the gear... SVS 20-39CS+ (one port plugged), Samson 1000, ART-351 EQ. I've got it all calibrated as-is (all EQ sliders at 0, subsonic filter at 10Hz, unity gain on EQ and amp, sub set 5dB hot from reference). Now I want to play around with EQ'ing. However, when I search on this topic, I don't find anything that clearly states just what in the hell I need to do. For instance, I see people using the Stryke disc to EQ... which uses sine waves at differing frequencies, right? Then I see these same people using the correction values to adjust for different frequencies on the SPL meter, even though I've also seen that the correction values only work properly for 1/3 octave white noise and not sine waves. Is there even a disc that has 1/3 octave noise? So what do I need to do here? I've got Avia, which has bass sweeps but not 1/3 octave white noise. I took a tone generator on my PC and burned a CD of sine waves matching the sliders on the ART-351. I tried using this CD to bring everything flat, and the result was a muddy nasty mess of sound. Could someone please give me an idiot-proof method for proper EQ'ing? I'm fairly proficient when it comes to this stuff, but this has me a bit befuddled.
