What’s a normal frequency response in an untreated room? (measurements)


Have you ever looked at the frequency response of your room and thought:

Is this really what my room sounds like?

Is it really THAT bad?

It’s so easy to get worried that there might be a serious problem that you don’t know anything about.

How is there any way to trust what you’re hearing if this is what your speakers sound like!

So in today’s video I want to go through a few examples of what a typical frequency response looks like in a small, untreated room.

I'll show you what you need to be aware of to understand what you’re looking at, the two main things to watch out for, and what to ignore.

And I want to give you a simple trick you can use to figure out what it is you are actually hearing.
