Intro + Room EQ (BD-Design)

If you DSP the peak out of the equation then the problem (standing wave) is still there but you give it less energy to work with. Same for the 96Hz... measure in the exact middle of the room and you'll see a peak at 96Hz and a dip at 48Hz.

Ah I see. After reading a bit more about standing waves I now have a better sense of what's happening. I also did try playing a sine wave at 48hz and walked around the room... indeed it was pretty dramatic.

It seems this is the first problem I should solve in my listening room then. I can move my speakers a bit away from the wall so they are not right in the high pressure area of the wave, and then I suppose my best bet will be applying some bass traps in the corners...

Alternatively I could build a second set of woofers to place behind me along the opposite wall. Would that solve the problem also?

Cheers,

Kristo
