So I'm pretty familiar with Rew and how to use it. Same as my twk. My problem is where do I line the graphs up under the eq screen or should I quit using the auto feature. I'm gonna post a link to pics of each driver under the eq screen and also a link to my Dropbox with the mdat file for these measurements. When I follow the auto eq filters I can get it pretty close to Target but it doesn't sound that great. Kinda washed out I'd call it.

My mids are the ones that come with the morel Virtus 602 and they are in the stock location, lower door.

My tweeters are in the a pillars just right in front of the sail panels. They are the morel mt350. The ones that come with the elate series.

I'm not really gonna worry about the sub till I get the front set sounding the way I like. It's a sundown X15v2 dual 4 ohm.

Thanks for any help you all can give me. Links below.

Trust your ears, then I assume if you have a DSP or HU without active or band pass abilities, trust your hearing, forget the auto tune. You need some good tracks to tune by ear.

Cross your drivers in the range they play better, then match level your tweeters and mids, sub, then EQ or TA, tune with loudness off, start with flat EQ, boost 8k to 16khz, one or 2 steps, the left side flat except cutting in the 150-180 3-4 steps, that would be a good start,
To get tonality good, you may have to have the sub on even if turned down a bit. If you use some good tracks with vocals and instruments where bass is almost absent I would agree to turn the sub of to tune the fronts.
The important things are crossing without overlapping, level matching and tonality, the rest is fine tuning TA and side or channel EQ.

Another option, would be to get some local Dyma members familiar with the DSP laptop tuning to help you.

I do have a dsp and am running active. I don't trust my ears that much. I know what sounds good but when something sounds off or really loud in one area I couldn't tell you where that is.

I put the graphs up and a link to the measurements I did. Hopefully someone on here helps out sooner or later. I know Skizer does remote tuning and I'll probably ask him about that again. My brother said I can do it at his house. I have not internet in my garage cause it's a condo. Garage is pretty far from my house.

Thanks for the help

Are you using a particular house curve or just tuning flat? What smoothing are you using? I can't look at your files right now, from my phone.

Right now I'm using jbl/andy curve from jazzis tuning companion. 1/6th octave for smoothing.
