Bass integration guide

In this article, I cover how to best set up the bass in your room. It has occurred to me that many audio enthusiasts pay careful attention to every aspect of their system while accepting mediocre performance in the bass. In response I've put together a process aimed at pursuing the best possible performance. It isn't for those willing to stop at good performance. I'm writing this for those who are passionate about bass. 

The first of this three part series is now online at Hifi Zine:

The first part focuses on measuring the current level of performance in your room. Some performance targets are also introduced so that you can see the areas that need improvement.
