Requested Bass Experiment

Well, a forum member requested a bass experiment where I would keep the mic in exactly the same position and hit the power on my subs one by one and do some CSDs of the results.  I obliged, but I'll just show the extreme cases.  There's nothing else to see really.  It will give you an idea of the changes you can expect.

That's a wrap.


  1. thx man. i appreciate it. not sure i got want i wanted here. but it's hard to communicate via the forum.

    anyway what you should see is less pronounced peaks and valleys and less extended tails (room modes). like at 60hz. and this should be happening all over the room. that's how you'd know the multi approach is working. otherwise the room is ringing too much and that will make the bass sound less tight. but you know that.

  2. You're welcome. Check out the "Hearing Beyond Haas" in the menu on the right side of your screen. I would doubt that multisubbing would generally shorten CSD tails or that it would happen all over the room. It will likely shorten some tails and lengthen others at various spots throughout the room. Flatter/smoother frequency response I would think should correlate with tighter perceived bass and that is can be achieved with multisubbing(or by other means).
