Someone remind me why I'm looking for a new sub(s)?

After some REW measurements, bass management and level adjustments, and applying my processor's single PEQ filter to remove a peak centered at 73hz, I tried a few movie scenes to hear the results. Among the scenes was "Darla tapping aquarium" from Finding Nemo. I set the volume to -3.5 which is a bit louder than normal (I'd probably watch this movie at about -6 normally). OMG! The room whole room was shaking! I've watched the movie several times and don't remember this scene being quite like this. I didn't notice any obvious signs of distress from my single SVS 16-46PC+.

How much better can a new sub be? Would I notice a SQ difference? I'm beginning to think the only difference would be how the sub behaves at it's limits. Mine bottoms out (it didn't during the Darla scene though), but a new sub would behave much better.

Like I said, remind me why I'm looking for a new sub?

That would make you the guy with the most Triaxs to date. I'm still waiting for some crazy person to order 4.lol

Well ..... I got my 2 xv30f s hooked up and ran a couple tests after leveling them up with my mains via AVR.

I want to note- no trip of the breaker, a 15 amp breaker that is sharing the AVR and several lights plus whatever I don't know about.

Here's the graph. The blue is just a higher DB vs. the gold. It's a test with both subs and L/R

I know right...These subs should come with warning labels stating...

"Warning PSA subs are highly addictive and may lead to a chronic case of upgraditis"

Its wierd, I have never been bit by the upgrade bug like I have since buying the xv15's. The part that is even stranger is the fact these subs are the best I have herd so I have no clue why I want more. I believe its the fact that if the xv15 sounds this good, imagine what a xv30 would sound like...ok the xv30 sounds awsome, now imagine what a Triax would sound like. Then Tom will release a Ported version of the Triax and imagine what it would sound like. Im hosed lol!!

you have a similar 30-40hz peak I had...mini dsp or add a third xv30f lol. I would try moving them around first befor going any further tho.

Any specific movement? I have some side to side but not much. And thats it. From there its room treatment or eq.

one thing you might do first is take the measurement between 80-90db and see if the response changes. 60db is pretty low.

also lets see some pics of those beasts!

Ya I think Pioneer MCACC might be doing something with the volume, because to get 80 db on the REW SPL meter I'm having to crank the volume on the AVR to high. When I go to do a test I get the clip warning. Not to mention my ears blow out.

You need to get a spl meter and calibrate REW to the MIC...I had the same issue when I first started using REW.

I have the USB UMIK-1 Mic. There is supposed to be a calibration process in REW using the REW SPL meter but I can't get it working consistently.

As of now I've just noted to set AVR volume on -10 and mic input to 25. I can up the mic input and show in the 100's on the graph using the same AVR volume settings. But all I'm after is the freq. response.

Anyways- I just moved my subs in and out from the side walls and these are my results. I get the best response with the max distance from each side wall.

The only thing I have not done is go all but 3" from the wall. Maybe I'll try that, but I don't see that getting better based on these results.

This is only subs, no speakers.

Thats not bad there, now your ready for a mini dsp if you want to truly flatten it out, but thats up to you if you think its worth it. you can tell that your room is large by how fast they drop off at 18hz. How are you liking them?

No that’s not bad at all considering other graphs I’ve seen. Solid down to 18.

Is an EQ the only way to get flatter? I haven't put up any treatments yet. The two front corners are getting traps floor to ceiling and the front wall is getting 4". Also doing 1st reflections and a ceiling cloud.

How do I like them?? I don't know yet. I'm totally overwhelmed with AVR settings. I finally had to shut off the MCACC, manually level out the speakers and subs and go from there.

I can tell they pack a punch from the couple of measures I did with volumes up. I haven't even really played with actually listening to them. lol.....

In this graph, your calibration is clearly incorrect. The subs are set about 15 db too high.

Yeah, solid to 18 Hz, but take note of the scale. The difference between 38 Hz and 50 Hz is about 14 dB! That will sound boomy at 38 Hz and thin and weak at 50 Hz.

Garden variety, fiberglass absorbers won't help in to the 30 - 60 Hz range. Wavelengths at those frequencies are so long that it would take several FEET of absorptive material to soak up those resonances. Tuned absorbers would be more beneficial. but they are more expensive and more difficult to tune to the exact problem frequency range. If changing placements doesn't correct the problem(s), EQ is your best bet for resonances in that range. MCACC won't help at all below 63 Hz, so if you stick with Pioneer, you'll need an out-board solution. If you want to explore that route, do some searches for the Behringer BFD, the mini-DSP, the AntiMode 8033, the Velodyne SMS-1, and Audyssey Pro/SVS AS-EQ1. Otherwise, an Audyssey XT32-based receiver or pre/pro is your best bet.

NIce- that looks like less than a 3 DB difference in most areas. I notice you drop off at 80. I have my AVR set to 80 and I'm not dropping 80 like you. Is that a feature of the DSP?

Cross over setting on my avr is at 80 on my yamaha. however to get that graph I had to boost frequencies that killed my some headroom. I was hitting 132db before eq'ing @ 32hz. so I am going to add another xv15, that should help smooth the graph on its own and require minimal eq'ing.

Nice response.

 

Have you taken measurements with your speakers on? Does your curve look the same?

If changing placements doesn't correct the problem(s), EQ is your best bet for resonances in that range. MCACC won't help at all below 63 Hz, so if you stick with Pioneer, you'll need an out-board solution. If you want to explore that route, do some searches for the Behringer BFD, the mini-DSP, the AntiMode 8033, the Velodyne SMS-1, and Audyssey Pro/SVS AS-EQ1. Otherwise, an Audyssey XT32-based receiver or pre/pro is your best bet.

I pretty much only have the front wall of the room to play with.

The only thing I didn't like about the PSA choice is the lack of a PEQ.

Yep- xo on my Pioneer is 80 also, but mine aren't dropping like that. Oh well, very early in the process.
