    I have a Fostex monitoring system (subwoofer with 2 satellites). I know it's not the best for monitoring, but better than PC speakers or home HIFI speakers.

    Can anyone suggest what I should do to make sure that the gain on the sub is not too high or too low? If it's set too high, my mixes won't have enough bass when played on other systems. If it's too low, I may overcompensate on the EQ and give it too much bass. Any ideas?

    Hi Lee,
    First of all hey hows it going,
    Do you know anybody who owns, or can get their hands on some sort of measurement microphone? If you can get one of these your task will be a lot easier.
    Also what kind of room have you got, acoustically treated, partially treated or plain old bare walls. Because this will have a direct affect on how you should set it up.
    Let me know and I can help you a little better.
