Holmz, I wish I could answer that but I’m pretty clueless - I don’t know what both concepts mean. I’m far from savvy on these things and saw a room correction ruin as something of a magic wand that “just fixed things”. Regarding using the subwoofer - I know I’m going to have to deal with taming bass reflections and my knowledge, based on common sense is I’ll have to lay a large carpet on the wooden floor, install bass traps and possibly install curtain rails and heavy curtains on all four walls that I can open or close gradually based on trial and error. Soft furnishings are going to help also, but then again this is all about bass….I’m still wondering what a room correction system will get me beyond that.
You guys are pretty hard core serious from what I’m reading here - I’m too, too busy, too old and not “audiophile” enough to go to those lengths Plus, I know I’ll never be 100% happy because I’m dealing with the limitations of living in an apartment.
I got hooked years ago when I bought some Magnapans and great amps, I was completely blown away - it was like I had just heard music for the first time but I’ll never come close to that experience again and I know that, I’ll just be content to get the best out of my apartment system, accept lower volume levels and not be wrecking my brain in the process.
I have no doubt you guys would think nothing about spending a grand on a room correction system and I wouldn’t have a problem neither of it was a “big” hobby for me but it’s not these days, it’s more about not just throwing together about $10,000 worth of gear and getting $2000 benefit from it when maybe something like a room correction system could make that difference.
