I for one think that an AVR with room correction is a good idea, especially for subs. Like you were thinking, it will set levels, phase, and delays for you while correcting the response of your bass.

I remember that it was the first thing I noticed when upgraded to the 876. IMHO it's not worthy to pay $175 for a 8 years old receiver... Just save more (with no rush) and get a newer receiver like the Denon X4100 with Audyssey XT32.

Good plan. When I get home tonight from buying the Def Tech bp30s, I will connect it all, reposition sub, rerun the test tones like always... then sit down and watch a movie and get back with my initial impressions.

So far though, the customer care at Rythmik has been A+... shipping A+ (both speedy and box in great shape).

The Denon X4100W is a killer deal, the only notable difference between it and the upcoming X4200W is HDCP 2.2 for 4K and DTS:X. the original price of the X4100W is $1400 and it comes with Audyssey MultEQ XT32 which is one of the best built in AVR room correction solution out there. the X4200W is due to arrive soon so the price for the X4100W has dropped to $729 or $799.99 from the most trusted guys like Crutchfield, B&H and Fry's Electronics.

Receiver - Sony STR-DH550
Front - Klipsch Reference Premiere RP-280F
Center
- Klipsch Reference Premiere RP-450C
Sub - Rythmik FV15HP

If you do not need stuff like Atmos and 2.2 you can still find new 4520ci's for $999.

Panasonic VT50 / Sony S7200

I wonder if you're sitting in a null.

Also, accessories4less is a good place to try and get a cheap AVR. Manufacturer warranty and good return policy.

With all the 18, 21 and 24 inch subwoofers coming out. I am wondering if Rythmik is considering making an 18 inch sub......

Your results look great, so it's probably best to leave it alone.

Buuuut...
From a techinical perspective, I think there may be advantages to doing all the EQ in Dirac, and just using the MiniDSP 2x4 for time alignment.

I agree it is not a good idea to do a lot of eq before dirac.

In my case however using the low pass filter at 50 hertz on the front subs resulted in a ~3-7 db increase in the overall output around 60-80 hertz so I thought the resulting curve would be easier for dirac to work with..

Which would ultimately result in something like this...


If you take yourself too seriously expect me to do the exact opposite

Brian has told me more than a few times he isn't interested in selling subwoofers the size of refrigerators. With that said, I'm sure he will find a happy medium he is comfortable with when he does start to design something bigger.

Some questions on the LV12R model please:

1) Does the LV12R have less maximum output in LFE input mode than L and R input mode? (I read that on some threads*.)

2) Per the frequency response charts, on Rythmik's site, it seems in L and R input mode, the LV12R drops off in output above 75 to 80 Hz (seems maximum crossover point in that input mode),whereas in LFE input mode, it extends to 250 Hz. Is that correct, you would lose output with higher than 80 Hz crossover, or LFE content above 80 Hz in L and R input mode?

3) Does the lV12R have a low rumble filter at 19 Hz (I read that in a few posts)? If so, does that curtail output below 19 Hz even more so than the normal ported drop off at its tuning frequency (i.e. does the filter pretty much stop output below that frequency)? If so, is there an EQ mode that would eliminate that filter to gain that output?


* examples of posts about the lower output when using LFE input:

I can't answer the other questions, but the rumble filter is an on/off switch. It's recommended that you turn it off for moderate output and ON for high output, to protect the driver and free up amp power.

One thing I was cutious about last year when I was considering the LV12R was the port diameter. For a large 12" sub, it seemed like the LV12R was under-ported, but never really heard any reports of problems. I believe the port is only 3 or 3.25" in diameter. Even the smaller, 10" SVS PB-1000 has a larger port than that.
