Home Speaker Asylum

General speaker questions for audio and home theater.

RE: EQ and subs? a continutaion from K-Bob's learning.

I suggest using a multi band parametric equalizer rather than a 1/3r octave equalizer. That gives more versatility, and one channel equalizers are relatively inexpensive. IMO electronics quality is less an issue when only EQing bass. Also suggest only cutting down peaks, as dips tend to occur due to standing wave cancellation effects and are better addressed by moving the subwoofers or the listening position.

I have a single dipole subwoofer with ESL57s, but I did the crossover much lower, around 63 Hz, with a passive roll-off to the Quads and a 4th order active to the subwoofers, approximating a Linkwitz-Riley crossover (the Quads plus 6 dB/octave approximate 24 db/octave in combination. YMMV.
