As far as I understand, these files are basically a csv format file with the values of the house curve in a way that REW can read it. Once read by REW it will show up on the screen so we can use it as a reference for tuning out systems. With that said, does anyone here have such House Curve files that would like to share? If so, please copy and paste them here. Worst case scenario I will create my own based on the well known House Curves for car audio and I will share them here.

So far I have created a curve file, I used the JBL as the model for this one. Here it is:

20 9.2
25 9.2
32 9.2
40 9.2
50 9.2
63 9.2
80 8.0
100 6.0
125 4.0
160 1.0
200 0.0
250 0.0
315 0.0
400 0.0
500 0.0
630 0.0
800 0.0
1000 0.0
1250 0.0
1600 0.0
2000 0.0
2500 0.0
3150 0.0
4000 -0.5
5000 -1.0
6300 -2.0
8000 -3.0
10000 -4.0
12500 -4.5
16000 -5.0
20000 -6.0

But I can't find the way to make it show up on the screen. I got to load it in the House Curve options but I cant find the House Curve icon to make it show up on the screen. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

I added your curve to a text file and opened it with REW. It shows up as the target in the EQ window automatically.

It is. You can write it this way:


20 9.2
63 9.2
80 8.0
100 6.0
125 4.0
160 1.0
200 0.0
3150 0.0
4000 -0.5
5000 -1.0
10000 -4.0
12500 -4.5
16000 -5.0
20000 -6.0

Have you seen the excel tool I build specifically for building house curves? The link in my signature below is for the most recent version.

I haven't used this in REW yet. Anyone care to give a quick summary of how this feature works?
It allows you to define an EQ target curve that is more complex than the standard target curve functionality in the EQ window.

Jazzi has an excel sheet that allows you to build a house curve and export a text file that REW can read. The file is loaded in the House Curve tab in Settings.

Ok, then what? Do you just display the curve along with the FR of your system and make notes of what cuts need to be made? I guess I'll have to play with it a bit to see why it would be useful. Couldn't I just look at my FR and say "look, it needs to be 5dB down from x to y?"

Jazzi did a really great job with his House Curve tool. You can customize anything you want and then export it to a text file.

REW has an auto EQ function. It will generate filters to adjust the measured FR to meet your target curve. With some EQs you can send filters directly to the EQ.

Yes, of course you can.

The auto eq works very nice.!!

Sometimes playing with its limits can get a better tune. But for the MOST part it works with no changes. The help file on minidsp site is very good about it . Got me to really understand how to use all of its features

I just want to make sure I understand. If you plug in a curve does it tell you what to adjust in order to make your FR match the target curve? I guess I just need to spend some time playing with this feature.

Yes, it will generate suggested EQ settings to match the target curve.

So I have tried the JBL curve and even though it was a vast improvement over my ear tune I though it was a bit too mellow for my taste. I think now I am going to try something with a little more sparkle like the Crutchfield house curve:

20 6.0
25 6.0
32 6.0
40 6.0
50 6.0
63 6.0
80 6.0
100 6.0
125 5.0
160 3.0
200 2.0
250 0.0
315 0.0
400 1.0
500 0.0
630 0.0
800 0.0
1000 0.0
1250 0.0
1600 0.0
2000 0.0
2500 0.0
3150 0.0
4000 0.0
5000 0.0
6300 0.0
8000 0.0
10000 -1.0
12500 1.5
16000 -2.0
20000 -9.0

I know I can get rid of all the zeroes but that is my template for more curves to come.
