    Monitor frequency response question

    Hello,
    maybe some of you guys have messed around with the frequency meter
    during a studio installation and can interpret the diagram below with
    much more experience.

    At the top there's the original signal from a CD (it's pink noise, don't ask
    why the graph is descending), below is the signal recorded at my
    listening position with a condenser microphone.

    Generally I'm rather happy to get it that good (for a non-studio environment).

    What I'm worried about is the up- and down region between 640 Hz and
    10 kHz, are this room reflexions which can be controled with absorbing
    materials at the walls?
    And if so, which materials are best for this frequence range?

    Thanks in advance for your time.
    Tom

    Don't touch a thing. That looks GREAT.

    Most speaker charts have that level of ripple in the frequency response. If that's your result with amps, speakers, the room and the mic, you're solid.

    So, what monitors are you using?

    Thank for your comment.

    Yes, that's the complete chain:

    soundcard->mixer->speakers->mic->mixer->soundcard

    The monitors are the (active) Yamaha HS50 M together with an inexpensive
    subwoofer from Samson (see links below).

    I've tested the monitors against a couple of other monitors and they were
    by far the best.
    Not nice sounding, but very analytical.
    They are a little weak on the bass side, so I decided to add the subwoofer.

    I don't know how this subwoofer compares to the original Yamaha subwoofer
    (the shop didn't have this sub in stock), but it's adjustable in wide range
    and still in the shop I already found good settings.
    And it has a remote that helped A LOT to find the best settings.
