I measure with chair in the room both Dirac sofa and chair options and to my ears sofa sound better but after removing the chair from sweet spot,stage open up more.Could be my Ikea leather chair? Attached pictures of my room and dirac graphic.Just Dirac correction with no peq or crossover.Can I improve even more? Should I change the Dirac target or work with PEQ? System: Avantgarde Uno Nano,Coincident Frankenstein 300B monos,Auralic Aries file player and Auralic Vega preamp Dac. DDRC-24 (Analog Inputs) between Dac & Amps.
thanks

Highback chairs are generally not the best option for listening as there will be a reflection off it.

You should try different target curves. It's very much personal preference e.g. some people like to have a strong boost in the bass. I would move the lowest control point to remove the boost in the 20 Hz area.

The reason is those are ported boxes and woofers have excessive excursion below tuning frequency.


Sorry forget that. My bad. They are actually active sealed boxes. Still, you should play with the target curves.

I found this guide to build custom Target and try it same curve but don't sound right with my speakers.It shrink the whole stage.
Is there any proper way to learn build custom curve according to my speakers? Maybe I should start learning about EQ graphics and how works?
