Earlier today, I received my miniDSP Umik-1 calibrated by Cross-Spectrum. I opened it up, made a platform out of my chair, and plopped the mic onto the platform in-between the two speakers at my listening level. I downloaded REW and read some basic tutorials from miniDSP and REW on how to set up REW properly. I'm guessing that measurements are generally done at 90 degrees but in this case, is it okay to do 0 degrees? I have the calibration files for 0, 45, and 90 degrees for my umik-1. Anyways... my measurements turned out looking like this. I just left it zoomed all the way out because I don't really know what's appropiate for the Y axis. Obviously for the X axis, only 20hz-20khz really matters. I only have OJneg's initial measurements and the designer's measurements to really go by, so I don't know how far off my measurements are. And of course, there's room acoustics to be taken account of as well. I'll probably measure the speakers again from a couple feet back, where I would be listening at a equilateral triangle position with the speakers. I also have a pair of Audioengine A2s and Polk Audio Monitor monitor 40 series ii that I could measure sometime to see how they are. So... some questions: 1. How should I do the separate left and right channel measurements? Should I leave the mic where I had it and just disconnect one of the speakers? Or should I place the mic right in front of a single speaker (and disconnect the other of course). 2. Preferred measurements at 0, 45, or 90 degrees? I don't have a mic stand or tripod (my camera one doesnt fit), so I'm not sure if I can pull off 45 or 90. 2. I know that there isn't a standard for speaker measurement, but what should I ideally set the scale on the X and Y axis to? 3. What volume should I be measuring at? Looking at OJ's and Ultrabike's measurements, I see that they measured a lower volume than I did. 4. Is there much that can be improved upon with EQ? I'm not really sure how to even go about doing it with windows or foobar, since the EQ values from REW can't just be plugged into a PEQ like EasyQ on foobar. I'm hoping that some experienced guys (OJ, UB, Marv) can chime in with some suggestions. But I'm open to anything! Edit: please move to another sub-forum if this isn't the appropriate one.
