Schuesmp Posted July 2, 2022 Author Share Posted July 2, 2022 Over the course of yesterday and this morning, I recalibrated the powered bass sections of my Quatro Wood CT’s, which became necessary when I relocated the speakers within my relatively large listening space. I employed the technique recommended by Vandersteen (Vandertones measured with Realistic 33-2050 Sound Level Meter), which improved the speakers’ performance in my room markedly, compared to their performance using the EQ settings established for the previous room placement. I actually enjoyed the process! Mostly out of curiosity, I fired up the Real Time Analyzer in my AudioTools application for iPad and evaluated readings taken by a miniDSP UMIK-1 USB measurement calibrated microphone. This tool allowed me to further balance the speakers’ low and mid-bass output, as well as to address some nasties in the very low bass region (20-30 Hz) that I did not identify using the Vandertones and Realistic Sound Level Meter (likely human error). I am REALLY pleased with the results and am enjoying excellent sound. I did my best to not over-EQ the powered bass, heeding Richard Vandersteen’s advice, which I understand could potentially result in a relatively dull presentation. Thank you, Richard, for your helpful “Room Adjustable Bass” video available on YouTube, which was akin to an effective project kick-off meeting for my lazy butt. 😉 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
