    Interesting that there are different filters to download, depending upon your main speaker (e.g. Summits) woofer settings. Looks like we'll still need to "tweak" the Sub settings further to optimize for our own setups/rooms, ostensibly using the Perfect Bass Kit. Doesn't look as "plug and play" as I hoped!

    I have ML EFX. How hard would it be to adjust the low frequencies to that of what the filters would do? Could you just use a program to read the filters and configure those settings onto a non ML sub?

    Snyder, the ideal filter set is determined by your sub(s) in your room with your speakers, and where you and the subs/speakers sit. The best way to determine that filter set is by measuring in your room, using REW or Omnimic etc.

    To apply those filters, you'll need a DSP engine which will accept them, whether it's in the sub or the AVR or an external box, like Antimode.

    What's your setup?

    My setup is EFX front and rear and going 11.1 shortly. I have no other measuring devices except XT32. I'm not interested in using REW, Omnimic, Antimode etc. I'm just curious if the low pass filter settings file can be done via the standard dials on a sub? Otherwise I'll go with the BalanceForce just for the ease of tuning if it saves that much time.
