    Hi RichP714, Looking at your observing list, you must have some dark skies and a good sized telescope.

    Chops' Modest System...

    It sounds like you got it dialed in good. Another way you can try is to run your 62 Hz test tone, and invert the phase on the sub. You can probably do that with the dbx, but you can also just swap the wires on the sub (if it is driven from an external amp). Then move the phase to make the SPL minimum. When you switch it back, it should be flat through the crossover.

    UncleMeat you’re correct that running a tube amp without a load is bad, but for most solid state amps it is no problem. The channel with no load is putting out just enough power to run the meter. Especially with a single sub, changing the location will change the standing waves in the room, so experimentation is the way to go.

    I feel your loss. A few weeks ago I took our Jamie in at 15 1/2. But like yours she had a good full life. May your most excellent buddy RIP.

    As a somewhat outside observer in this, I think that everyone has said what they need to, and further public discussion is unlikely to improve things. I recommend that this thread now be locked.

    The Keithley can measure distortion? I have a 2010, and it can’t. I will need to look into that, and may be interested in it.

    My crap stuff :)

    After looking at those pictures, I say it begs for some serious A/B speaker listening tests and let us know how it sounds.
