Thanks, that's exactly what I think. I'm not judging anyone's setup here. Have fun and enjoy!

No criticism at all, but I did wonder how you get all the equipment into the room, not to mention chairs? A pic would be terrific, I'd love to see what it looks like. Wouldn't mind hearing it either, but from Denver the impact probably wouldn't be that great.

The system sounds much clearer, open and better overall - not just the bass but everything. I can't explain it but my wife has definitely noticed this too.

I'll stop now so I don't sound too much like a fanboy!
Yeah I had this same feeling when I got my PS12-NSD. I'm sure a lot went into it. Having good room correction software, towers and center, and sub can really make audio shine. I've been told this, having a good sub and the crossovers set correctly, it allows the sub to handle the hard stuff. It actually made my mid-bass punchier. Maybe that's because the towers can focus more on that. It's pretty amazing though.

No, I do not think your setup is in anyway "stupid" (overkill maybe, but then there's nothing wrong with that... headroom is a good thing... and you have a lot of a good thing). Yes, I am jealous of your subs. And may I offer my condolences to your neighbors...

Funny you mention the neighbors. Since I have moved to the country that has not been a problem (before yes). Now, only my wife complains.

Thanks for the help Retro. I prefer the new sealed mode sound and it's closer to what I'm looking for. I do have a few questions I'm hoping either you or someone else on this thread can help with. I have a 7.1 surround setup and I ran the MCACC on my Pioneer Elite SC-75 Receiver, which is their version of Audyssey. When it was finished, it had my Fronts and Center set to Large, with my Rears and Surrounds set to small. I've ran this before with the PB-12 Ultra and it always sets my fronts and center to large. I've always changed it back to small. Is this correct?? My Center is an AXIOM Audio VP-150 and my Towers are Axiom Audio M60's. Also, I have my speakers set to 100HZ. That's where the calibration put them. Not sure if that should be changed either.


Now there's some options I'm not exactly sure about and would like to get an opinion on where I should set them with my current setup. One of the options it gives me right before running the calibration is whether or not my speakers are THX. It says, "THX Speaker" and I can choose on or off. I kept it at off because I'm not sure if they are and what exactly that would do. The other setting I wasn't sure of deals with the subwoofer. There's an option after the calibration called "THX Select 2 SW" which is set to yes. Should I have the PB-12 set for THX Select 2? Whether I should or shouldn't, what exactly do I gain or lose from this. Thanks for the help!
