it's your mic clipping, not your sub. Is your mic volume at 100%? Make sure to follow a good REW guide for set-up.

I can't tell if that graph look good or not...your vertical scale is set to 20db increments when it should be 5db.

Please follow the guidelines I posted above and re-post the graph.

That being said, it looks like you've got a pretty good dip between 40-55hz. Looks to be around 10db or more....that's not good as that is right where the "meat" of the mid-bass lies.

RE: clipping - are you running REW with HDMI or with the legacy analog connections? If legacy, how exactly do you have your PC connected to your AVR? Did you calibrate the SPL before your REW session? You have an SPL meter, right?

Are these with Audyssey? Do you have Audyssey?? If so, is this with Dyn EQ on or off?

If you can move subs that is the best way to remove nulls. If you can't do that then put a neg peq of 8 at 39hz with q of 2 and -5 at 53hz q if 2.

Ooops, you beat me to it with the 5db steps.

Yup, horrible dip there....around 12-13db looks like.

I tried moving the subs and it did not help much, if any. I confirmed a 14db loss from 39hz to 44hz with the spl meter..kinda bummed out. It still sounds great, but now i know it could be better. Nothing i can really do about that.

I put in Donny's suggestion with settings and it did not really improve much, or get worse.

Yup, that's a null. Have you tried measuring a foot or so in front or behind the MLP? I bet you'll get drastically different readings.

Do you have a pic or diagram of your room you could share?

I had a 10db null at 80hz with two subs up front. I like my subs xo at 110hz so it sucked. When I added my third sub nearfield it got rid of null completely. Now I can feel the midbass better.

Nearfield can be a micro-cube which can double as an end table.

Yeah I am loving it. I watched Godzilla last night and there was plenty of rumble in that movie. I know the movie is getting some crap over on the master bass list, but my couch was vibrating through a good portion of that movie. I started the movie at -10db and ended up finishing it at -17db...love my system. Now I just have to save up for a projector and screen.

Just watched Pulse for the first time last night. My wife hates scary movies so I said lets watch this..When the server room scene came on she said to me, " this is the only reason you bought this movie isn't it"..I laughed.. Then she said out of all the movies you pick this one because of that scene..She asked how I even found out about it..I pointed her to the forum..lol
