But, I wanted to know better, to have a closer look at how things are.
That means testing and measuring.
PrefaceI'm experiencing poor bass-definition, and bass-boosts. It's hard to use monitors for eq-decissions, relying much on headphones.
I've treated main reflection-points, and one corner with 30mm high density Rockwool. Though it helped a lot, I'm eager to see some more detailed analysis.
I used- REW, Room EQ Wizard (software)
- Cad 179 (mic)
- A spl-meter (from Clas Ohlson)
My speakers are: Krk Rokit 5 G1
and I used my Mackie vlz3 (preamp and monitor-controller) and Rme Hdsp audio interface
|My setup for measuring on my listening position.|
|Back wall and corner|
TestingI measured my mix-position, left speaker, right speaker, left + right,
and 4 other positions, typical for second person listening, or moving around a little.
ResultsAll graphs have 1/6octave-smoothing
|Left, and right speaker.|
|My mix-position (L+R) with avearge of room-positions.|
|Waterfall diagram for main position. 30-300hz, 1000ms|
- The measurements clearly show the trouble I'm experiencing in the bass-area.
- 59hz +7db
- 96-101hz is +12db
- 271-300hz, 560hz, 782hz and 1,1khz -5db
- 383-487hz +4db
- And left speaker is very poorly placed in the corner compared with right speaker.
- Then sustained frequencies ringing for more than 1000ms for 41 and 50hz; 83hz maybe more relevant.
