Hello,

I'm trying to integrate two fairly large subwoofers into two decently sized speakers using the MSO tutorial and I'm having difficulty with one particularly high peak that is ~+40DB relative to the rest of the system output. The built in PEQ (and MSO) will not allow me to handle such a large peak, and I'd rather not reduce the output gain since that would drop the otherwise useful levels outside of the peak below the target reference.

I saw online someone demonstrate a method of exceeding the GUI limits but I'm not sure if it's still applicable or the preferred method. Should I be reducing the gain on the initial routing matrix and then boost the areas below reference via PEQ and output gain? I'm unclear at what point I'll be distorting the signal vs doing digital signal manipulation within the processing envelope.

What miniDSP product are you using? It's possible to define notch filters that exceed the range shown on the GUI on the ones I've used (2 x 4 HD and SHD), and I bet it's true of the Flex as well.

In this case it is the Flex so that bodes well, would I be able to generate the bi-quad filter info from REW, export it as a txt file and then import into the plug-in using the advanced section?

I guess normally I would have to add an EQ block in MSO with a set value so it takes it into account, but since MSO doesn't accept such strong filters I guess I would just keep it engaged during the measurements and mentally track that I have 1 less EQ filter available to let MSO use.

I'm pretty sure the answer is yes but just try it to know for certain.
