My "water heater" has arrived. At first look I was concerned, the box had substantial damage and it was not double boxed. After unpacking everything I can see no apparent physical damage.
Hookup will have to wait until tomorrow, I thought I had a Y adapter....but I don't....

Well, I got a Y adapter and got everything hooked up.
Initial down and dirty setup...

AVR XO 80Hz
SVS XO 50Hz
All trim levels set to 0
Speaker distances set to approximately the correct distances

Used SPL meter to roughly set sub gain levels.
Did not run Audyssey, so no room correction at this time.

Initial thoughts...

I played the first attack scene from Master and Commander
Cranked the volume to -5db (I know it's not accurate yet)
And Holy cow...IT SOUNDED PRETTY DARN GOOD

With the SVS sub set at 50Hz there is no way I should be able to "Localize it" but I could..
Perhaps I just wanted to hear it, so I did. It's about 5 feet away from my chair, it was almost like I could feel the pressure from it....I don't know...

At this point, I am looking forward to getting everything dialed in so I can hear what it can really do....

Why no audyssey?

No subwoofer I've heard has been able to produce the bass I've experienced in the Corps!

Must..stop...buying...every bluray release...

It was just a quick down and dirty setup when I got home from work. A more painstaking setup attempt will hopefully happen this weekend.
I'm waiting for a sound card and some cables so I can get my laptop hooked up to do some room sweeps with REW in all of the subs various tuning modes.
I want to find out what the room likes best before running Audyssey....

I am completely lost with REW, I know the results are not correct.
I've gone over the sound card calibration steps at least 30 times, the results look like they should.
I've tried loop back multiple times. I have checked and unchecked SPL "C weighted" ...etc

Every time I try to measure, I get this...




There is no way in H*&% this is correct...
