Sounds like you're planning on getting REW up and running though....? That's good, it's really the best thing you can do to learn what's going on in your room and how to fix it.

Yes, that's what I was asking....you really shouldn't be getting any localization. If you are, that's telling me that you have a nasty peak somewhere and the only way to find it is with REW.

I also have the Pioneer Andrew Jones 5.1 setup (gave the sub away) and feel they're punching significantly above their price point. I cross my center and surrounds at 100hz and my towers at 90hz. Works quite well in my room, localization isn't an issue unless you consider the couch near the PSA sub shakes a bit more than other seating positions.

It release stress on your speaker allowing it to deliver clean/clear sound in what it is capable of doing. My main can go low to 25hz measured in my room. I have them xovered at 80 and planning to raise to 100 for the stated reasons.

Btw, I have crossover set to 120hz with no issues. I'm using small NHT bookshelf speakers for surrounds.

Alan, do not flip the box over. As ahblaza said, just lift the upper box off. The sub is fairly easy to slide sitting in the box base. It will really help if you can get someone to help. Having help moving my original Triax made things much easier. Perhaps the reduction in weight will make it more manageable though.

Ahhh yes, couch shaking bass... is there anything better? That's the best way to have localization of bass. That and watching your pant legs flap around, that's fun too.

Sweet! UMIK is here. Now the fun begins. I have to take care of some things this afternoon but after that the learning begins as I dive into the world of REW and see what's really going on in my HT.

Excellent! And be glad you already have two subs(measuring usually leads to buying a 2nd sub. )

If you don't have a miniDSP yet, might as well plan on that soon.

AVR:       Yamaha RXV-375

Display:  Panasonic  TH-50PC77U

LCR:       Hsu HB1.2  HC1.2

Sub:       (2) PSA XV15se

Blu Ray:  Sony BDP-S5100

Apple TV

Harmony 650

miniDSP

I haven't seen or felt pant leg flapping bass. Not sure if I haven't demoed the right material at the right volume or I have too much space for the phenomenon... Anyone in the OH area want to demo pant shaking bass for me?

Yeah I thought I would hold off on that until after I do the measuring just on the outside chance that all could be solved without it. But I'm sure you are right, I'll end up with it soon enough.

Just experienced it the other night when I played the rocket launch scene in Enders Game.
