But if the SPL meter screws onto the tripod horizontally, will I be able to tilt the tripod (pic below) so that the mic is vertical? Sorry, my first tripod. The SPL directions indicate that the meter should be pointing at the source.


The screw hole is on the bottom.

Yes, the screw is on the bottom of the meter, will I be able to tilt the tripod so the meter is vertical?

Then, when you mount the meter on the tripod, it will point to the ceiling. You're good to go.

REW results indicated slightly better, more even performance in the 16Hz tune. And since I'm nowhere close to maximum output levels, I went with the 16Hz.

Although I didn't try the sealed tune with REW, later, out of curiosity, I listened to the sub in sealed mode and bass lines were clearly ... less defined ... FWIW

Thanks for getting back to me about your preference. I tried the 20 tune last night it was louder but i get a better blend using the 16 tune. I really like the pb12 plus alot people think i should trade it in since i have one more month on the trade up program. They said i should get two pb2000's for more even coverage. Any opinions about going dual vs the pb12 plus ?

I have never listened to a pb12 plus, but I run dual pb2000's and it frickin' blows my mind every time.

Used my new tripod today for proper Audyssey calibration and it made a huge difference over placing the Audyssey mic on a barstool. The bass with the new PC-2000 after proper calibration is insane. I feel like I'm in a movie theater but it may be a little much for the neighbors. Is it best to turn down the trim or sub volume?

Here are the settings, all suggestions are welcome.

Everything looks perfect If you think there is too much bass try the dyn EQ offset at -5 or -10 (even some mixers of the sound say that -5 is the perfect spot)...also make sure you have all speakers on small...if you have to turn down the trim turn it down in AVR and leave the trim on sub as is

I was told on the Audyssey thread to leave the speaker levels where they were set by Audyssey...unless I have external test tones. After running Audyssey I don't want to use the internal test tones because they bypass the Audyssey EQ filters. The speaker levels will vary (sometimes greatly) when the filters are on. This is why you only want to set speaker trims post-Audyssey with an external source.

So, I need to find external test tones.

Do you mean Dynamic EQ Reference Level Offset to 5? My choices are 5, 10 & 15.

The beta testers on the OPPO threads recommend this. I need to pick an AIX disc when I get my surrounds.

Ralph, can you hear a difference between the new Sledge amp and the old BASH? I have a 12" PC-Ultra from 2007 and I feel at some point in the future I'm going to end up having to replace the amp with a corresponding Sledge version.

Greetings,

It's a bit early to tell if I "hear" a difference but it's clearly different. After setup I found myself tinkering/tweaking to attain the response/blend I am accustomed to. I would say that I am pretty much there but will know for certain after spending more time listening to some reference material I am intimately familiar with.

Either way the PB-13 Ultra rocks...
