XV15se Gain vs Audyssey
I'm working on setting up my XV15se, and I had a general question regarding the gain setting versus what is recommended for Audyssey. My receiver is an Onkyo TX-NR809 that runs Audyssey MultEQ XT, and after setting up everything based upon what is recommended in the Audyssey FAQ, having the gain at 12:00 puts the end result at -2db, which is within the suggested range of -3db - 0db after calibration.
It seems like most have been pleased with the XV15se once the gain is in the neighborhood of 1:00-2:00, and I ended up between -9.5 db and -14.5 db when I ran the calibration in that range. My question is for those people that run the sub gain in the 1:00-2:00 range, are you disregarding the recommended post-calibration range and just running with whatever the receiver sets, or are you ending up between -3 db and 0 db?
To my untrained ear, it seems to be lacking the LFE impact for movies with the gain at 12:00, and I wanted to put the question out there for those that have gone through the setup process with their XV15se.
