Round off the corners before you paint them to prevent the corners from digging into and shredding the padding on the trunk floor. It will happen over time if you carry stuff in the trunk.
That's exactly how. RTA each speaker by using the moving mic method with all speakers muted. Hit Save. Move to the next. Once done you will have a group of measures. Import a house curve and save the whole group. Do your adjustments virtually in REW. Then update your DSP. Remeasure and adjust.Thanks guys. I'm still learning what the TWK-88 can do, but as far as I know it does not have all pass filters. Lowpass, highpass, bandpass or no filter at all for every channel. Plus a polarity flip and level control for each channel, of course.
It's very apparent to me that I have lot of work to do before I can even say I have a baseline tune. This is the main disadvantage of full active vs. using the passive xovers the component set came with.
So for level matching, do I play pink noise through just one driver at a time (e.g. the left midrange) while all the other drivers are off, measure it's level, then repeat the process for the right midrange and so on?
You use 1/1 smoothing?Exactly. And do this after equalizing each single driver to the target curve as this makes judgment on the levels a lot easier if the response is within 1-2 dB on each driver. So do EQ first, then measure each driver, set smoothing for both drivers of a pair to 1/1 Oktave and see how much and which driver to lower in volume. And all in relation to the overall target curve of course.
I see. 1/1 octave for level matching makes sense.For level settings? I measure in 1/48th and adjust for the specific task. Level settings with 1/1 after i have done the individual drivers eq. 1/12 for equalizing the single drivers response. Point is, after doing the EQ you get just the overall response without all the small dips and peaks that are of no interest for setting the level between drivers when using 1/1 octave smoothing, but can easily see if one driver is 1-2 dB louder than the other driver.
