Basement Home Theater - Using Room EQ Wizard to Setup a House Curve



Published
This is how I used Room EQ Wizard for my Bass Management in my home theater. I will walk you through the steps I used to get to my final House Curve and get even bass throughout my entire theater area, minimizing peaks and nulls for a more consistent bass response throughout all seating areas. Please keep in mind I am not an expert - but have done a lot of research before I went through this process.
