    I went to update my audio driver and i saw a list of enhancements you can apply to you speakers, one of them was room correction. Do you guys reckon if this would turned on it woul acctuacly benefit you or not? might be a silly question.

    It shouldnt be something you just turn on. The way room correction works is you have a measurement microphone in your listening position, and the correction software will plays through the frequency range of your monitors, and works out the response of your room across the frequencies. It will then apply an EQ curve that trys to make up for the peaks and dips in the response.

    Worth a go, but only if its done properly, otherwise you can end up making things worse than when you started. (y)
