I am not home to do that. It will be the weekend. Sorry.
The little test jingle works just fine when testing the speakers through the sound card configuration.

Sorry for the crappy pictures.

I've been reading a lot of the posts in this thread regarding settings. I still don't really get it. Can anybody fill in the blanks and correct any misconceptions I have?

Low damping = fuller bass (better for HT)
High damping = tighter bass (better for music)

14hz/20hz/28hz - why would you want to filter ANY frequencies?

One port open - digs deeper
Two ports open - more output

You pretty much got it. In regards to the frequencies the higher you select the more SPL you will achieve, but at the expense of extension.

I personally do not see a point to 14/20/28, its 14hz or bust with that setting.

Now One port vs Two port is a thing to test, also depends on room as well as low vs high.

Looking at charts and talking directly with Enrico about my room and intentions (high spl HT playback), I am starting with two ports open, 14hz and Low damping. Considering I am high spl with a 5400 cuft room, the way he described one ports and two ports to me, expecially HT only (two ports extends well to 15hz), I do not need one port plugged.

Once I get the second FV15HP in I will do further experimentation with REW and proceed because I will have mismatched subs right now and dont have the time.

I honestly think if you follow Rythmik's and data-bass's basic recommendations, it will sound great REGARDLESS:

One port open for medium SPL playback
Two ports for high SPL playback

14hz/High for "articulate" or music
14hz/Low for HT

Two be honest once I added the second Hsu sub, I can tell very little difference if any during a high spl movie between 1 port open (lowest xtension) and 2 ports open(highest output)

Also make sure you run auto eq with it set to:

one port open
rumble filter 1
14hz Low Damping

"RoomEQ has the capability to change the frequency
response in the room. EQ can interfere with the
damping settings as damping relates to the time
domain performance. As a result, it is recommended to
set up EQ with the maximum possible extension and
the best damping for sound quality. After EQ has
been set up, one can then adjust the rumble filter,
bass extension and damping settings for the best
compromise between output and sound quality."


And then adjust to whatever mode you wanna use.
