Wayne, these Eq threads just never end do they huhh? . . . . as you know, I have an SVS 16-46PC sub, since this subwoofer goes strong down to 16Hz, what type of house curve would you recommend for me to start with? I know this varies from room to room, personal pref's, actaul sub in use, human perception of loudness at various freq's, etc, (I've been reading all these BFD/EQ/housecurve threads) - but I need a suggestion just to get me started. I have a 12wx19lx8h room (1824 cu ft) with my fronts, center, TV, and front-corner-loaded sub all located along the 12w dimension - this listening room opens up to a kitchen,which I'm guessing, is 12x12x9h. The opening between my listening room and kitchen is about 8'wide and 7' tall. In one post for a forum member you suggested he start with a "9dB house curve from 100 to 32Hz" , which is fine. But given the 16-46's low end extension, would you suggest I start with a: 1. 9dB curve from 100 to 20Hz 2. 9dB curve from 100 to 32Hz and plateau/flat from 32 to 20? I just need something to get me started . . as always, thanks!
