Adding to what Chris said, the best way to measure a system like this is outdoors away from structures and for that you need to be able to setup the mic at quite a distance from the system and ideally quite a distance from the computer, so a mic that can utilize standard XLR cables is the way to go.

have you tried reversing the polarity of your subs?

try flipping just one and listen for a difference, if possible pan between the two for comparison.

Presumably storing the PA system off-site, then.


In that case, you'll need to measure + align your rig as part of soundcheck. Best to practice on something else first...

Similar issues, I've made lots of measurements during set up and by taking individual bits to relatives houses who have gardens or in friends yards. Even lower quality measurements are better than non. Once you get above 500Hz you can do measurements indoors using time gating. I'm building a battery powered amp setup at the moment partly to improve measurement quality.

My subs are stored downstairs in a store room and my mid/highs are upstairs in my flat. But yeah i'll have to see when I do my events again and measure there.
