Bass EQ has always been a problem. Room treatments, bass traps, tortured experiments with placement, the three little knobs on your subwoofer. Bah! Finally there is an easy and effective solution. Here’s how we do it: Place a “perfect” bass system in a real-world room and you get a mess of peaks and suck-outs.  Here’s what we get from the right channel BONECRUSHER in our lab.
Retailers and Installers: A Tool You Cannot Live Without
DESIGNERS’ BENCH Issue #2 - Room EQ
This system has flat output from 10 - 200Hz.  But in the room we get big fat peaks in the mid and upper bass that sound bad.  So we use the PEQ function in our DSP platform to simply mirror them out.  It’s fun, done in real time with both the analyzer and PEQ windows open on our laptop, we make incremental corrections that add up to a full set of equalizations. Try to do this with the three little knobs and some fuzzy stuff.
That took 5 minutes. And here’s the result. The right channel’s done. Now do the left.  Play your bass reference tracks for a subjective confirmation of your work and you’ll find that you’ve nailed it.  That simple.
Now you can put just about any Meadowlark bass system into just about any room with the confidence of knowing you have the tools to succeed. These tools combined with Dual Band Bass and our training bring a whole new level of realism to the bass.
