How long does it take to run? Does it vary between XT32/SubEQ and other Audyssey flavors? My Yamaha A3040 takes probably 3 minutes to run YPAO if I skip the angle measurements using the boomerang device.

Everything I have read is if you use an external calibration device, whether it is a MiniDSP, Anti-Mode, etc, you always re-run your automatic correction program after. Correct me if I'm wrong, but the theory is to leverage more resolution ability. If my receiver can only calibrate the subs on 4 different frequencies, then using the Anti-Mode's 36 filters to pre-correct the response allows for more of a "flattening potential" to the correction after the fact.

Now that I have a mic stand to attach the Audyssey mic to (rather than monkey around with some home-made/pain-in-the-ass microphone holder), I can get all 8 positions measured and calibrated in about 20 mins.

That Anti-Mode seems well reviewed and a worth while investment ... I'm curious too as to if and when you might incorporate the YPAO I'm guessing run the YPAO initially, if at all.

Bottom line: let's get your dual SB13 ultras performing up to their potential ... my Audyssey XT does a nice job with my system ... your dual set up definitely deserves a nice calibration upgrade ... please keep us posted :-)

I finally have the new theater up and running, along with my dual PC-12 Plus and PC-13 Ultra. I must say that I am very impressed. While the bass doesn't seem much louder necessarily, I am very impressed by how much cleaner it sounds. After some work with my Minidsp I got the delay set correctly and that really cleaned things up. According to REW in the 16hz tune I have usable bass down to nearly 12hz. I'm not going to complain about that.

I got the Ultra while in the middle of a move, so sadly I never got to play with it in my original theater, so I can't really say how much the Ultra added to the Plus. The new room is much larger (old theater was 12x10x8, the new theater is 17x11x11) so the Ultra is helping compensate for that. As of now I'll I've done in there is watched a few demo's of movies, tonight should be the first full length film in there.

Im running dual pb2000s in a room slightly bigger than that and it sounds damn good. Man I couldn't imagine how much better your setup sounds.

Hey TomC1315,

My twin SB13U are great - no complaints after the Anti-Mode. I think you may have mistaken my assistance and recommendation toward another fellow in the forum. 20 minutes is very reasonable for 8 measurements. I only measure my seat and I do keep YPAO activated after running the Anti-Mode on my subs - it's a huge difference without it and I verified my FR with REW and it's way more level and helps smooth the response. I enjoy YPAO : Flat the best as it keeps the highs sounding accurate, to my ears, and bright whereas Natural is more mellow and starts to dip around 11-12k.

Sound fantastic, congrats! I really need to learn to use REW.

Congrats, that must be amazing setup. I have chance to listen all 3 of those only 2 at time and end up with Pluses and it was not a plan at all. So with extra Ultra that must be excellent, enjoy.
