Sounds like a null related to chair location and room dimensions. Try moving your chair backward or forward 6 inches (more or less) and see if the frequency amplitude changes.

@newbee, definitely a null... I just difn’t know or think that they happened above 100hz or so. Never thought abkut hugher up frequencies cancelling themselves out. Makes sense though. I also didn’t realize how high of a pitch 300-500hz is.
I tried some really big differences in speaker location and speaker height, even flipped them upside down and measured the freq. response. Interestingly it didn’t change much.
I always knew the room makes a difference but now I am really beginning to see how much of a difference. Its great to actual have a visual of my freq response now.
Anyhow, Im hoping to tame this and some other areas with more room treatments. Maybe in the meantime I flip my listening position and see what happens 🤷🏼♂️
@erik_squires , thought the same thing. I put a panel on the ceiling right above and forward of where my listening seat is, right where 350hz was loudest. Didn’t do much. Then I took 2 panels from the front wall and put them on the ground in front of the speakers... Nothin.
It may just be this crappy little room Im working with.
Surprisingly my bass response is good. 0db at 28hz and -3 at 24hz.
My response is pretty crazy / peaks and dips. Just shows how much work my room needs. I am actually hearing strange reflections when the program is playing this clicking noise in order to locate distances.
Anyways, I may work on it some more today and see if I can figure it out. Wish I had some 25 foot runs of speaker cable. I’d just move my speakers around...
I think it could be a camber, caster issue to fix it. BUT the reason is probably the XO point. I fixed quite a few by tipping them forward or backward. It is usually forward for a dip in the mids, and back if the tweeter is boiling my ears AND I want a little better Mid Bass response. Start with 1/2" and then go all the way down to shems. The chair idea is a good one to tune it the rest of the way..
Just remember, a little mojo goes a long ways.. Flat has never made me happy. It's always been a very slight frown, looking after tuning it the way I like it, I hear what I like.. Slight rise in the middle. When I measure (not to often) it's always the same.. a slight frown on the PEQ. 2 db rise is just about right..
Cup your ears and see if it's what you like (chair forward call or EQ it.)
