You want to calibrate multiple subs as a "system" so all subs should be running when you run MCACC. If you run MCACC with only one sub, the EQ will not be correct since the combined frequency response when both subs are playing is probably vastly different than just one sub.
Symmetry: Implements symmetric correction for each pair of left and right speakers to flatten the frequency-amplitude characteristics.
Sounds like it applies the same correction to each pair of speakers (FL/FR, SL/SR, SBL/SBR)...not sure what it does to the CC or sub(s). This would only work if you have a perfectly symmetrical room and your MLP was equidistant from all speakers. FAIL!
All Channel Adjust: Is a 'flat' setting where all the speakers are set individually so no special weighting is given to any one channel.
Yup, EQing each speaker individually is what we want. WIN!
Front Align: Sets all speakers in accordance with the front speaker settings (no equalization is applied to the front left and right channels).
This is the same as "Audyssey Bypass L/R", a setting I've never liked (although some do).
The manual has a note that EQ of the subwoofer is automatically set when in All Channel Adjust.
Another WIN for All Channel Adjust.
Some of the stuff is confusing to me...
We were all there at one time...don't hesitate to ask questions, even ones you think are "stupid".
