    How do you measure sounds in a room to determine whether you are getting a flat response or drops at certain frequencies?

    I'm trying to do the same thing currently using my RS SPL meter and the Spectra Plus RTA software. Here's a link to TerryC's page that has the Spectra Plus software link and a compensation file for the RS SPL meter as well: http://members.tripod.com/~terrycthe...um/page12.html
    I only played with it for a short while last night, but I couldn't figure out how to actually get a frequency response analysis. Just using the RTA it looks like I have a HUGE (read ~20dB) dip between 64-70Hz. If anyone could give some tips on the Spectra Plus program, that'd be great.

    You can use your same RS SPL meter with the PC software located at this website:
    www.etfacoustic.com
    Additionally, this site explains the use of the software by providing a complete example demo room.
    Good reading just to understand the principles and possibilities of room acoustic tuning.
