Hey there - question from an OmniMic newbie for the list:
I picked up the OmniMic a few weeks back, and after doing some reading up through the thread, there's a reference to the DIY Audio DVD last fall which has 5.1 multichannel test tones in various ranges. I found the sticky link with the file and did the download, but haven't done anything with it yet personally.
Other than the minor annoyance of downloading and burning the ISO onto DVD, is there any particular reason why there's been little mention of anyone trying this with OmniMic? It would seem quite useful for testing frequency response with mains and one or more subs in the crossover/splice range, particularly if you've got powered mains or a center that can handle lower/mid bass, in the > 40 to 100 Hz range if you've got Audyssey or Audyssey Pro. I was thinking of using it for A/B testing of at least LCR and subs when I adjust my sub response with distance adjustments, as well as fine tuning crossovers for my center (I have DefTech Mythos ST and a CS-8080 center, all of which have powered "sub" (or in context, mid-bass) capability.
There's always the old-fashioned single speaker/sub or 2.1 test, but while we're waiting for the 5.1 DVD from Dayton, I was curious. I'd thought about posting on the Pro thread, but this seems a little more relevant here.
