I passed on the 4 fv15hp. Had some scuffs and scratches. Kinda minor but at his price I'd want them to be perfect. Exactly the reason I don't like piano black finish. Scratches to easy.

I'm going to wait till I move and see what sub I need.

I'm ok with 2 fv15hp for now

Yes Sr. I got an Emotiva XMC-1 with Dirac Live Full @DonH50 , @rcohen and @Bill Mac were kinda the three fellows who convinced me to try Dirac. So I went with the XMC-1 and until now the only regret I have is not having made my purchase three years ago when it came out.

I believe the XMC-1 had some issues when it came out, so you should only regret not buying it 2 years ago.
If I ever go the separates route, the XMC-1 will be the pre/pro I get.

I have a question about the Low Pass Filter (LPF). I have been playing around with settings on my new pair of F8's. Initially, I was using 12 db for the LPF setting but after switching to 24 db briefly this morning, it seemed that output was punchier and better defined. I am not using the sub's cross over. I have set the cross over at 80 Hz on my Marantz pre-amp for the 3 front speakers. My question... does LPF come into play only when using the sub's cross-over or does it also impact the roll off on the very bottom end ?

What Marantz preamp? The way the surround processors work is the speaker crossover is 12dB/octave. Then there is a LPF for LFR which defaults to 120Hz. Reducing this setting to match the speaker x-over effectively produces a 24dB/octave slope. Same enabling the LPF on the sub a 12/AVR.

Most prefer a steeper slope on the sub LPF for music. Setting the sub to 24dB/octave is effectively increasing the slope to 36dB/octave.

Getting the right blend with your mains so it sounds best to you is what is most important.

Here are several discussions in the past:

I have some exciting news! For the Audyssey thread there are a bunch of folks who say that the new app is cutting off LFE below 20hz and doing some funky stuff with the xover. So, to test I am doing an 8 point Audyssey run through the AVR, then measuring MLP and SLP with REW. Then I'm doing the same thing but through the app. Well, I just got done my sweeps of the room after the Audyssey through AVR Calibration, and with the subs on opposite sides of the room (front left and rear right), I have a very nice LFE response! I'll be posting a lengthy comparison in the other thread and when done, I will link back to it from here. Exciting stuff. Audyssey did what me, REW, the miniDSP 2x4 HD, and a lot of time could not.

Oh and the miniDSP 2x4 HD will be on sale

Great to hear you made progress. So no issues for you between AVR and app? Is the app worth it?

For anyone interested. Audyssey XT32 EQ'd the dual FV15HPs MUCH better when done from the AVR than from the Editor App. For my entire comparison, click here For now, I would recommend not using the app and just doing it through the AVR. Mic was in exact same spots (made marks) on each run. Nothing was different. Surprising.

MLP Sub Frequency Response - Clearly the AVR Calibration wins here.[/B][/U]

Here is the AVR run Audyssey:


Here is the App run Audyssey:

This is why I like Audyssey, quirks and all. I'm glad it's working out for ya.
