    Hi All,
    I have always appreciated the help here at the forum. I now have done some measuring in my room with my new Tempest Sono. Can you offer suggestions on improvement?
    I have acquired a BFD and am ready to put it into action! Pics of the room etc. to follow.

    Hi Casey
    I suggest that you go to Sonnie Parker's website: www.snapbug.ws/bfd.htm. There you will find an excellent tutorial on how to use the BFD and a Rat Shack SPL to equalize your subwoofer.

    You only need about 1 parametric eq to "correct" what little peak you have. Say a band centered at 36-38hz with 1 octave width and 3db cut. That should give you a decent "house curve". Try moving the fake tree around, might help too [​IMG]
     
  4. click on the link in my sig file. ...has a BFD program that lets you model the BFD responce onto the measured responce.

    All,

    Thanks a bunch for the input! Appreciated!

    Wayne,

    My problem is my "Behringer Speak". I have the greatest intentions of translating the instructions you gave me! I will investigate further! I did want to add that those measurements were from Couch 1 right in the middle. I have not measured from any other location as of yet.

    Again, thanks for the assistance, now it it time to act! :)

    Casey
