Default Sub setup

I am running two powered subs (mirage SS-1500 and SS-1000) what would be a good piece of music or testing sound to balance these with? Or do i just listen to a bunch of music that I like and go from there?

Hi Daem,

Perhaps this will help. It's the JL Audio, "Clean Sweep" system calibration tool for any sound system fine tuning that may need to be done.

There's also a "step-by-step", Input sensitivity set-up tutorial on the "JL Audio" website, that uses this cd to help you get the most out of your bass/sub-bass system; here's that link:

rigtec, Happy building!

Based on reading this forum for a few years, I believe the consensus is that it can be helpful to run curves, but your ears are the final judge (or judges) esp. for bass, over-riding the fallacy of the measured "flat" curve sounding right (or even sounding flat... it doesn't).

I'd say your best bet is REW software (requiring only a Radio Shack sound level meter) which runs on a Mac or Windows.

But the more important question is location. There is a long thread on multiple subs elsewhere. My preference is using mixed bass and heterogeneity of location... and you already have two different subs... so you are off to a good start.
