A Tale of Two Subwoofers
The full title of the article is: "A Tale of Two Subwoofers:
How I Achieved Bass Nirvana with the Velodyne SMS-1 Digital Drive
Subwoofer Management System and MIC-5 Multiple Microphone System". Home Theater Magazine articles such as this provide great insight on how to get the most out of your HT system. A lot of this is over my head, but I am learning as I go along.

From the article:
This type of presentation is called
an RTA, or Real Time Analysis. The SMS-1 generates a low frequency sine
wave sweep, through your subwoofer, and the microphone (which is placed in
your listening position) picks it up and transmits the sound back to the
SMS-1, and the curve is shown on your TV screen. You simply move the
sliders on the EQ bands until the response is as flat as you can get it.
