Jerry, what vehicle is this in?Quote:

The peak at around 4-5K can give the sound some real bite. Do trumphets or other horns in that region sound harsh at higher volumes? If so you may drop 4-5K down 3dB (not the 5 or 6dB that the response curve is showing).
Set your volume to about 85-90% of max (assuming max is at the systems limit of distortion) and listen to track 44 the sweep from 20-20K. Do you hear any drop outs or peaks? At any point does the sound break up or sound distorted? Anything that is really noticable you need to make a note of and then go back and find that particular freq.
The bass guitar track (assuming it's the same as the first disc) should tell you whether that little rise at 50hz is a problem or not. You don't want it to sound boomy. Each note he strums should be clearly defined from one to the next. If one note is noticable louder then you might need to move that freq down a few dB. Accuracy aside. A little extra bass around 50-70hz can sound pretty good in a moving car listening to non-audiophile CD's or just the radio. It can be a bit of user preference.
Aside from that little peak at 4-5K, it looks really smooth. As long as you have the tweeters, mids and subs adjusted so that they blend together and that no one speaker is noticable louder or quieter than the rest, you may not have much to tweak.
You might just go in and tweak a little over a broader range to suit your personal preferences and the type of music you like to listen to.
I'm going to have to go back and use the Radio Shack SPL meter on my system to refresh my memory of what a fairly tone balanced vehicle should look like.
Tell me what you think of the way your system sounds. Anything that stands out that you don't like or don't know if it sounds right?
