I'm also assuming that when you purchase the umik 1 mic from TV and download the cal file it already has a sensitivity file pasted in the file at the top of it.?
Yeah, if you have a mic with a sensitivity factor line in the cal file you will be unable to calibrate the SPL in REW. You're good to go.

Potentially.

I used one for a bit with subs that flanked my couch. Each about 4 feet from my main LP. After putting them in the chain and running Audyssey it had the distance set at 28ft. So the delay in getting from the receiver to the subs adds about 25ft to the sub distance calculated by Audyssey. I believe the max sub distance in Audyssey is 30ft. I am guessing if the subs would have been further away from my LP then audyssey would not have been able to calculate correctly.

I'd like a lot more punch/mid-bass. I have 2 XV15se's being pushed by a little x1000. any ideas on what the best route to take here would be? My old dual 12's of a different manu couldn't come close to the range/depth/richness of these but they had punch for days. mmm...puuunnnch.

From what I gather, this is not correct.

Audyssey can set distances longer than 30', you just can't adjust them. Not sure how you'd do the distance tweak, but that's what I've read here.

@basshead81 has the wireless sub kits and I know his subs get calibrated further than 30', maybe he'll chime in soon.

Have you done any/all of the below? Have you read the Audyssey 101 linked in my sig?

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Set the gain on the sub to around 12:00-2:00 (just a starting point, gain structure can vary greatly from one manufacturer to another). Set phase to "0".

1. Connect sub and place it at the MLP
2. Do the sub crawl to determine the best location
3. Place sub in that location
4. Run Audyssey, first mic position only and "calculate"
5. Look to see where Audyssey has set your sub trim, you want it to be around -5db to -8db ideally
6. Adjust the gain on the sub up or down as needed
7. Repeat 4-6 until you get the sub trim around -5db to -8db
8. Run the full Audyssey calibration
9. Bump up the sub trim by 3db to 6db to your preference
10. Enjoy!

Hope this helps!

Thats some big mountains you have there. Holy Moly. I take it you only have 1 sub? Did you do a sub crawl? And if yes, was there any other good locations? You may can try another area and see if that helps that Giant Peak and Null. If you only have 1 sub, this is where a 2nd sub may help. But maybe some of these more experienced guys can give you some more ideas on what to try to smooth that out some.

Measure your response...you probably have a cancellation in the upper bass range. I can tell you for a fact that my XV15's have enough punch to make your teeth chatter.

No, That's with 2 subs - one Psa 30se and my older Paradigm signature 30 servo sub up front and the Psa is behind my couch, I have not done the sub crawl yet, I wanted to see a graph first. My back of my room is open to a kitchen area so that does not help, Once i can do some better placement maybe I can tame it down some because i'm loosing all my mid-bass. I also do not have any smoothing on that graph.

You dont want to use smoothing on sub measurements. Take a measurement with just the PSA30se alone and post it. Your other sub could possible be cancelling out some FR.

buckley, putting it behind your sofa may not be too good if there is no wall there. If you have a wall next the side of the sofa, that would be better. But it should be close to a wall, or corner, and not out in the middle of the room.

That does help a great deal...or it will when I can do any of it. My sub placement options are pretty non-existent in this room. I have yet to do the crawl, but I have tried a few of the only other locations and the sound just wasn't up to par. I am thinking this room may be doomed.

I have my measuring tape handy...I've poked at the subs but they have yet to respond lol. I will be getting a new amp for one of my subs tomorrow from Tom so I might as well do at least the crawl while it's out. I will look into getting a measuring device soon. it's probably time to do that vs just keep throwing money at the problem. Thank you guys.

I have a tendency to just buy new stuff in hopes of solving things vs actually diagnosing/solving anything. While retailers love me for it...it does me little favors elsewhere in my house.

Ironically, this forum both helps me jump off of cliffs and talks me down from them. tis good.

I do have it about 3" off a side wall firing into the room the back wall is about 6' away which is a half wall with curtains covering the opening, Next to the half wall is 5 steps going up to a kitchen area.I do have a few options as far as placement I can try.

Why would the other sub be cancelling out some of the FR.

If you have REW, then put your sub where you listen to it at if you can elevate. You may not want to put it on your sofa. And get a SPL or your calibration mic and use REW to find the best spot of all the locations you can use.
But again, your other sub could be possible causing a cancellation. Or you have them out of phase.

I think its because there are two different subs.

Use Identical Subwoofers
As a general rule, if you are using multiple subwoofers, it is best to use identical ones from the same manufacturer. Although using different subwoofers may work, equalization, level matching, and adjustments become much more difficult. In all the research on the use of multiple subwoofers, the experts have used identical subwoofers.

The Science Behind Identical Subwoofers: Assume we have a device with several metallic poles with a bob attached to them. The bobs are colored red, blue, and green. Each pole has a different length, thus having a different natural frequency of vibration. When the red bob is disturbed, it begins vibrating at its natural frequency. This in turn forces the attached bar to vibrate at the same frequency; and this forces the other attached red bob into vibrating at the same natural frequency. This is resonance - one bob vibrating at a given frequency forcing a second object with the same natural frequency into vibrational motion. However, the green and blue bobs would not resonate. This is because the frequency of the red bobs share the same natural frequency. The result is that the second red bob begins vibrating with a huge amplitude. Identical subwoofers will have the same natural frequency and can work together a lot easier to generate smoother low frequency sound.

Before I worry about the 2 different subs, I'll try some different locations and take some more graphs. Tom V said it would not be a problem and they should work good together so I will try moving some things around and doing the sub crawl before I get to worried, With my room I'm not expecting the best results because of it being in the media/extra family rm, but I would like to dial it in the best I can for the given situation, I thought by adding the extra sub it would help with my situation but it seems like i have some work to do. I Remember my graphs looking better when I was using 1 sub with Arc on the anthem D2 ... Maybe Red is right about the one canceling out the other.
With taking the measurement with FL Speaker and Sub I thought only one sub was engaged anyways?

Take a measurement of each sub separate and you will find out if there is a cancellation issue. You can also try turning the phase on 1 sub and see if that makes it worst or better. Lots of things you can experiment with.

Good idea. Bass and real-estate are very similar in that it's all about location, location, location. In general, two subs are far better than one because they can smooth the bass over more of the room. The key to that working is that they are properly located in the room. The good news is you have REW so you can SEE through your measurements where the best locations are for your subs (the best locations will tame the mountains and valleys of your graphs quit a bit). The bad news is you will have to spend some time and sweat equity moving subs, running Audyssey, Running REW…. Moving subs again etc. But in the end it will be well worth the effort.

No, That's with 2 subs - one Psa 30se and my older Paradigm signature 30 servo sub up front and the Psa is behind my couch, I have not done the sub crawl yet, I wanted to see a graph first. My back of my room is open to a kitchen area so that does not help, Once i can do some better placement maybe I can tame it down some because i'm loosing all my mid-bass. I also do not have any smoothing on that graph.
Are you sure that is the model? I googled and couldn't find any info on that sub.
Anyway, which ever is the weakest should be next to the sofa. (From what I read)
