    The listening area is about 15 x 45í. And there is another 15 feet back from that but it is mostly walled off with a partial wall of absorption and diffusion. So thereís a lot of space for those long bass waves.

    For most recordings Iím at about +6db. I have the curve on the XT software pretty flató with a slight bump up at 45 Hz.

    Adjusting only the bass gain is pretty crude, but it seems to work well for me.
