Which is basically zilch - or I guess the just the MCACC calibration, an iPhone app SPL meter, and my ears. So some followup questions:
1. Will I even be able to know how to use it or what to look for or is there somewhere online where I can learn more - I'm always up for learning.
2. I assume the goal is to measure and tweak until i get as close to flat as my speakers and environment will allow, then tweak further for my specific listening. The article I already read gave an example where a specific person was adjusting to try to get to flat, but this person's hearing dropped off at the higher frequencies. So for this person, a flat level wasn't great, but instead a treble boost was ideal at higher volumes. I don't think my receiver lets me boos treble/bass at certain decibals, just an overall treble or bass +/-. So would I really be able to accomplish my ideal levels? Which brings me to my next question.
3. These devices seem to give very accurate readings, but my receiver's manual speaker calibrations aren't very detailed. I can turn each channel up or down, set the crossover, set the distance, and set whether they're small or large. Would I really be able to adjust THAT much that I would hear noticeable improvements? It already sounds awesome, but I'm all for chasing a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow, if there really is one there.
4. Is it possible due to all the hard surfaces, angles walls, etc. in my room that this thing could just get completely whacked out readings and do no good?
Anyways - I took back the SVS Prime Center today and picked up this bad boy. Can't wait to get it home tonight and redo my EQ (with MCACC that is)
