    I searched some threads, and found quite a few references. But I would like to re-address this again, since most of what came up from a search was pretty old.


    What programs do most use these days? Of course I need to be able to measure the low end stuff too.


    I am leaning towards DSSF3 lite, it looks like just about any decent mic into a mic input would yield decent enough results.


    Let me know, I want it going by Saturday, if at all possible. I downloaded the 30 day eval, I guess it is fully functional within the 30 days, so I may have some time ti decide with it.

    I like this one:

    www.etfacoustic.com

    Works with your PC and the RadioShack meter.

    Another good one is TrueRTA.

    You use ETF regularly and are able to fully eq your subs / HT rooms?

    I see they take pay pal, which is a plus in their favor. [​IMG]

    Neat how they offer a pre-amp and mic too.

    Yes, I use ETF regularly. The one single issue I have with it, is its cost. I use maybe 10% of the program's capability. Simply for EQ'ing a sub. But there's a heck of a lot of stuff in there. I eventually did buy the full version, because it got to be a pain to exit and re-enter the program after every 4 plots (that's what the demo version allows). $150 is kind of steep for what I use it for. But I have vowed to myself to *someday* take a further look and see what else is in there that I can make use of. [​IMG]
