An easy test to see what might be ringing:

Clap your hands loudly (or, since you're into percussion, maybe you have a slapstick), and listen to what responds. Then remove or dampen what you can.

I discovered that the sections of the HVAC diffuser ring like a bell - I need some dynamat or something to dampen it.

I'm not really hearing any ringing. it's more what shows in the measurements, which makes me think it is more in my setup. Specifically I think the monitors on top of the sidecar racks are suspicious. I wonder if anything like a Mopad would help? I originally did not have the bricks on top, but adding those seemed to tighten up the low-end, which is another reason I think I may be in the ballpark... And of course there are plenty of knock-offs of Mopad-like supports, as well as different designs for even more $$. the prices are all over. ATS Acoustics has some Mopad-like iso-pads for $6 pair.

anyone using iso-pads and what is your experience?
