OK spent the day trying to get these puppies decently set up. Learned a few things today. First no matter what I do Audy has the sub about 10db too low at MLP, but I saw some other folks had similar issues. So I will just boost sub 6-8db. Next the dual V1800s brought in from the corners gets rid of boominess. Combined the duals run out of headroom around 115db, that was a bit disappointing. And finally that the dual V1800s combined give me about 4db more headroom than 1 alone. Maxed out the distortion really get bad in the 62Hx area then below 18Hz, but at more reasonable level the distortion is well controlled. Some other notes, the sub take too long to wake up when in auto mode, a few seconds. Long enough that if they are in standby Audy initial setup does not think there are subs attached. Not sure what the how long of inactivity before they go into standby.
I am sure I gave up a few db pulling them from the corners as I can hear the rise in db if I stand in the corner, so whatever I lost buy pulling them in I gained back with duals as well as more tightness. The room gain means is nice it almost performs more like a sealed with a slow roll off below port tune such that 10Hz is only 10db down. The only down side is the sub gain is barley on, more liek 7 o'clock on the knob, if I touch it a hair it is off. With the nasty dips I am thinking minidsp 2x4 and put it in 2v mode which will introduce 7db loss whichwill get that knob away from almost being a hair from off. Now to sit back and enjoy it, some movies and music this week and next weekend then maybe next I can post a more thorough review.
