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...

I have purchased an SVS PC12-PLUS, that will hopefully be here Friday.

This gives me the possibility of having 3 subs hooked up. If I understand correctly, multiple subs help smooth room response.
Given not all the subs are the same, is it worth trying to use them all?
Or would I be better off using the DefTech's speaker level inputs only and trying to dial in just the SVS?

Opinions, suggestions....All are welcome....

Thanks in advance....
What did you ever end up doing? You seem to know a lot about def tech setups from my other post. I am waiting on my 8060STs and Center. I don't know that my Polk 505 Sub is the same "quality" but I have always enjoyed it. How do you setup and mix the 3 subs together? I would use the LFE outputs. I have a Pioneer AVR so MACACC is my software. Thanks!

Well, a lot has changed since this thread was started. First, the SVS was moved 7' back to the other side of the stub wall. The AVR has been changed, the 3313 went into the beedroom, it was replaced by a 4520, well 2 of them...both had problems and were replaced by a Yamaha RX-A2020. A miniDSP was added for sub tuning. The AVR has 2 sub outs and EQ's them seperatly. Sub 1 goes to the 8060's, each with it's own filter settings and sub 2 goes to the SVS with a different filter. After this was done I ran YPAO, everything plays pretty well together now...
