I have read multiple Audessy posts and thought I read from Chris that modifying the speaker channel levels would not over ride the work audessy did. Maybe I missunderstood?
My problem does not lie in the cheap SPL app as I only used that now to see how far off the channels were from each other. I let Audessy do its thing and let it sit like that until I decided today to mess with it. After reading multiple posts from multiple forums on unimpressionable bass, to just up the levels and see how it sounds, I decided to try it with more impressionable results than prior.
Unless you mean by "where my problem lays" as in why I am seeing a margin of difference between all the channels from Audessy, then it is possible. However if it is just taking a white noise sample, how can this really be an issue? I know it will not be accurate SPL wise as a numerical value, but to distinguish the difference in levels between channels, i think it can be a fairly valid comparison to tell me they are not equal.
What are different methods of calibration?
-I put on a tripod
- start at listening height about 18" away from the back of my sofa.
- do each side about 3 ft or so from the main listening position (the secondary listening positions for other users)
- follow the same practices for the remaining 3 spots about 2 ft forward from the original positions.
Now the mic I used this time was a replacement I just got off Ebay because my original went missing the other week. Same style Denon mic, but with a different model #. My gf found my original Denon unit the other day, but I cannot imagine it will give any different results.
Am I doing this wrong? Bear with me here. I am still trying to figure this out and make the best of this fairly large amount of money in upgrades I just spent in the last couple weeks.
