I discovered a strange behavior of the Auto-EQ feature. Maybe somebody has a solution for me.
I set up the Auto-EQ feature as instructed in the app. But with the EQ engaged it sounds quite bad.
So I measured the frequency response of my room with the Auto-EQ feature activated and deactivated.
See the response graphs here.
As you can see I have not a good room response to start with 🙂
But when I activade the Auto-EQ it gets worse 🙁
I have tried measuring my room numerous times with the app and I always get the same response.
Has somebody measured the room response before and after the correction and got the same problem?
Is there any fix to this problem?

That is very strange.
Which device are you using with Element to calibrate?
What speakers are you using with the Element Amp?

I am using a Samsung S5 mini with the Elac app.
The Speakers are KEF iQ30.

I’m wondering if the S5 is too close to speakers. We recommend holding the phone/tablet about 6-8 inches away from the speaker with the mic pointed at the speaker.
We also recommend volume at around 75-80%.
Many have found this video helpful, there maybe something missed.

Hey, Charles thanks for your input.
I already watched the video and did everything as instructed.
FYI: I´m not using a subwoofer. Just the Auto-EQ feature on my two speakers.
As you can see this time the Auto-EQ feature did help quite a bit. Especially at 55 Hertz.
And it sounds quite nice as well 🙂
So I´m assuming the andoid app has some kind of bug. With the andoid app my room response just would not correct the right way.

I’m glad it works better now.
I’ll let development know about your experience.

This can be cause by directional mic on the phone. Try changing the angle at which you hold the mic to the speaker. For the seated position measurements, be sure you have enough volume. Try this if you want to get best results: http://www.daytonaudio.com/index.php/imm-6-idevice-calibrated-measurement-microphone.html

The ELAC app may not support that mic.

Thank´s for your input but I don´t think that this problem is related to the micrphone in the smartphone.
Because I also tried this with a Rode Smartlav+ attached to my phone and got the same results.
