If you need any help just pm me. I will do my best to assist you.


All I do is plug a hdmi cable from my laptop to the aux. hdmi in on my AVR. Next I plug the cross spectrum mic into my laptop via usb. using hdmi bypasses the sound card calibration and simplifies things a bunch. REW is really not that bad, but I suggest downloading it now, open it up and start tinkering. Also, watch the youtube video at the same time. GL


I can about gurantee you are sitting in a null...those 30's should be slamming you in the chest. My XV15's just about take your breath away when they hit, but again placement is everything.

Thanks for the offer, if I can't figure it out I will PM you.


Also, I would think those 30s should do that. My only concern is I don't have a lot of room to move them around. I have though about placing them in the center as one giant woofer. Also I have the woofers facing forward and back. I could face them so they are each firing at the side walls.

If you have a closed rectangular room, the room simulator in REW 5.01 is a great way to quickly experiment with placement options. It doesn't replace the need for measurements, but I have found it to be pretty accurate.

For rotation, the best thing to do is experiment and measure. It shouldn't make a huge difference, but sometimes one way works better, so it's worth a try.

It's been quiet here. Folks must be enjoying the sub(s). To stir thing up, is it not a good idea to run one fv15 in one port open and another one in 2 ports open feeding off an XT32 with subeqHT receiver? I have not seen or heard anyone running dual subs with this configuration. Is it a crazy idea? Would one get the best of both world: low extension from one sub and high output from another that is? Wonder how Audyssey subeqHT is going to handle this? Your thought?

This is probably why it has been so quiet in here. Everyone's kicking back enjoying their subs. I know that's all I have been doing as of late. Some time ago I was playing around a lot with 1 port vs 2 port mode and in the end I chose to chase that deep extension.

Does anyone know how long it usually takes for subs to ship after they're ordered? I ordered 2 F12SEs on Wednesday. I received the confirmation of payment immediately, but as of yet, have not received an email saying that they had shipped.

I would message Brian on here or give him a ring. If the subwoofer is in stock it should ship fairly quickly.

It's generally best to match filter settings and ports between multiple subs so that you can get consistent phase for all frequencies, rather than cancellation in some frequencies. You can tune the phase/delay independently, though, so you can time align them.

As long as you measure, you might find a happy exception, but generally, you want the output from multiple subs to be as consistent as possible.

Has anyone tried medium dampening in one port mode? I've tried high and low, but not medium. Isn't 0.7 Q supposed to be perfection? Which is what medium dampening would yield. I'm no expert, so please feel free to correct me.

The more I read it looks like a Q of 0.5 is preferred by most. This would be high dampening on Rythmik subs. To be honest I prefer low over high dampening. The bass is more full bodied, hence has more ringing, but it just sounds better with movies to me.

Sounds like somebody needs to try medium damping. Flip that switch and report back, please.

^^ if you calibrate Audessey on low damping, all you need to do to experiment is to flip the sub switch; on the other hand, if hi damping was calibrated, switching to med or low damping requires (preferably) rerun Audessey cal.

Hi damping is preferred for accurate music reproduction. For movie, low is fine and perhaps is preferred for 'full body' sound.

Since JT mentioned the damping effects, can someone explain to me again how low damping setting has more output than hi and how low damping can have more 'full body' sound than hi based on my graph of the three damping settings in my room? My graph shows Hi damping setting rolls off at 10hz where as lo damping at 15hz (big different for bass to be felt, hint: should be more 'full body' sound with hi damping). Above 15hz, all three settings has identical response.
Note: each graph was measured after each Audessey recal with Aud on and DynEQ off.
Thanks.

Audyssey is throwing things off, since it is applying variable EQ. Measure again without Audyssey.


Low damping has a steeper filter slope, which cuts power-intensive low frequencies more aggressively for more headroom and adds a bit of ringing (smear).


"Full body" can be a nice way to describe ringing or sometimes distortion. Generally, neither ringing nor distortion are considered desirable, but some people prefer them, because it sounds louder and fuller.

^^ I can try to measure without Audessey to see my responses between the three settings but it does not do me any good when I watch a movie with Audessey always on, one of the main reason for buying my X4000 Denon. Why would xt32 with subeqHT throws things off? Isn't it one of the best out there?
So low damping does not translate to more output? Just more head room? I don't think I want to give up 10-15hz for that beside from having more ringing/distortion as you pointed out with low damping. Thanks Rcohen.

More output and more headroom are the same thing. You do give up the lowest frequencies for it. It doesn't add distortion, just a bit of ringing for the lowest frequencies. I just meant that sometimes "full body" is also used to describe distortion. For some rooms and tastes, low damping is best. It's easy enough to try.

Audyssey tries to flatten out the EQ, so it hides what the sub filter settings are doing. You can (and probably should) still use it, especially if you like the sound better that way. I just meant to turn it off if you want to see what the sub filter settings do.

According to http://www.rythmikaudio.com/eq.html, low dampening is supposed to also provide a 1.5 dB boost, which is missing from your curve:

That was my understanding, that you get more output in the upper frequencies (20 Hz)by making the amp not work as hard in the lower frequencies.
Since I favor music, I calibrated Audyssey with the high damping setting, and have never tried the other settings.
I bought a Cross-Spectrum Umik and got everything ready for HDMI REW before I got my F15HPs a few months ago, but I've been enjoying them so I haven't bothered to do any measurements yet :-) But I'll have some time in a couple weeks.

1.5 db won't make any major difference in the HT or with music except on graph paper for the most part.

When doing a/b comparisons, 1.5 db is quite audible. After long periods of time, your mind does some funky psychoacoustic stuff that would greatly diminish the difference.

Well I've had my Rythmiks for awhile now and I've never heard distortion with the dampening set to low. I have one specific example I can provide of the bass sounding hollow and not full with high dampening. Run the iron hide flip scene in the first transformers. Try out high and low dampening and you'll see what I'm talking about. The bass seems hollow and almost cut short when set to high dampening. I noticed this in a few scenes from the 2008 version of the hulk. So in low dampening the full body bass I'm hearing (ringing/smear) is distortion? It sounds pretty damn clean to me.

Rcohen, Bathes,
My graph does not show more output from low damping. It shows roll off at 15hz. Looking at my graph, what damping setting would you use/choose? That was why I asked as I also see Rythmik and Ricci's graph shows more output with low damping. As rcohen stated: Audessey had flatten it out. I would like someone (Bathes and all) to measure the three damping settings with Audessey engaged and post his/her graph to see if it acts similar to mine.
JT, thanks for the iron flip clip for comparison.
I guest at the end, I need to try and see which damping sounds better even if hi damping looks best on my graph.
Thanks guys.

Distortion isn't really a good word for ringing. Normally, distortion is used to describe other stuff.

Here's where you can hear the difference. It's actually pretty subtle:

1) Low damping is a steeper rolloff, so things will be quieter below the cutoff frequency. So, you could find something with sound below that frequency, and compare.

2) For stuff at the cutoff frequency, there will be slightly less detail. Again, it's subtle, but I can hear the difference the most with movies that have large objects bouncing around. With low damping, it will be kind of rumbly. With high damping, it will be more articulate, with distinct bumps. On the other hand, sometimes a bit of smear sounds a bit better, like with a big booming explosion.

3) In some cases, the extra phase coherency from high damping can help make things sound tighter. On the other hand, cutting off the lower frequencies and boosting the rest can help in a different way. Sorting out time alignment can help, too.

Try out high and low dampening and you'll see what I'm talking about. The bass seems hollow and almost cut short when set to high dampening. I noticed this in a few scenes from the 2008 version of the hulk. So in low dampening the full body bass I'm hearing (ringing/smear) is distortion? It sounds pretty damn clean to me.
I wouldn't say its distortion but like u stated its more ringing. There is a difference. Hopefully someone can explain the difference as I don't know how to put it in words right now

I would like someone (Bathes and all) to measure the three damping settings with Audessey engaged and post his/her graph to see if it acts similar to mine.
JT, thanks for the iron flip clip for comparison.
I guest at the end, I need to try and see which damping sounds better even if hi damping looks best on my graph.
Thanks guys.
Low damping gives you a steeper rolloff, not more output. Doing that, however, conserves a lot of amp power and driver extension, so that it is capable of more output (more headroom) above the rolloff frequency.
