Thats a nice article. One of the guidelines is not to throw more money to bad aqustic room. I will read it on more detail but it doesnt say how we make our rooms better, what is this DIY...?

A new problem i found and i need your help on this (if i am right). Maybe somone can do the same to his own sub and inform me. Like a test.

I am disconnecting ALL audio cables and i am leaving just the power. And i am opening it.
It makes a Zzzz sound like electic sound passes from it. Low but i hear it. After 2 seconds this sound reduces a lot but i still hear it, i understand that it is open and electric passes from it just from this sound. Its very low (my ear hear it very difficult but i hear it in 1 meter distance)

Also it makes a low “boom” sound like a drum 3-4 seconds after i open it like its ready to play, like a microfone....

Is this things malfunction or i am overeacting? Its a subwoofer 600€ price range and lower. We cant compare it with high end cicruits.
Its still under warranty i need to know so i will contact the shop.

Is this audyssey charts acceptable?
You're focusing on the wrong thing. The Audyssey charts are very limited and do not show accurately enough the information needed to even answer your question. Does it sound better to you? Is it acceptable? Only you can answer that. Going forward there's only one thing you can do if you want a real improvement. Replace. That. Subwoofer.
