Is Tom trying to figure a connection or setting problem? I think you ruled everynight out, no? Even with a peaky response the peaks should be much higher. Eq will take away headroom but not like what you are showing. To give you an idea I hit 110 dBs from 14 feet away with a single SVS PB2/plus. What type of connections are there on the back of the sub? I assume it has a LFE RCA out jack? You seem to have everything setup correctly. The only other way is to disconnect the sub and start over to make sure it is the sub or subs. Did you try running just one sub at a time to see if the output drops accordingly?
Ok. Right now my sub trim is at -10, and I've read to try and stay at zero or below. This is the sub trim on the AVR.
I am just shy of 3 o'clock on the sub amps. I can certainly turn the sub gain down and up the AVR trim to more middle number as has been recommended.
The subs show proper SPL gain on the meter when I turn one off. I drop ~6 DB when I turn off one sub.
I did today run a ton of quick measures just to experiment with some things. Some of those did include measures of one sub at at time. But I did not save the graphs and wasn't really looking at SPL, more so FR.
I am connected via the LFE RCA jack on the sub amp, correct.
My mic, for all the recent measures, is at 9'6".
Did you look at the most recent graph with the phase changes? I'm not sure if 45* of phase is killing the DBs or not. But there is no configuration of these two speakers in front of the chairs that will give better results than with the left cabinet phase at 45*.
Tom has not replied to my latest email, but last we spoke he did say they are very busy and he is working on my case every couple days.
The only thing I can think is a problem with the subs/amp or AVR LFE out (that's the ONLY thing I have not tested. But the way the subs hit a wall like they do, to me and my limited knowledge, says sub amps our out of juice.
