Not sure if there would be a way to do this, but I'm setting up a live/recording room for a studio and curious of the best ways to basically test the room itself. Since speakers aren't all flat, I would think there's going to be variation for whatever speakers you're using, so that you would get different results with different speakers, right?
So in order to find problem frequencies of the room itself, are there a recommended set of monitors or maybe reference materials for a specific speaker you would use? Or could you calibrate them somehow, or do you do it from various distances, using various speakers, etc? I'm kind of looking for a "control" in terms of experimentation...
I understand the idea of a control/mixing room, where you would set the EQ on the speakers for that room and therefore not need a "control" or baseline, but I haven't been able to find much information on live rooms and testing for the room itself, or if it would even be possible to do such a thing.

I guess you have to measure the speakers in an anechoic chamber and then in the room and the difference is the room...

But I could be mistaken :)
