Glad to see you went with a dual sub configuration. I've seen people spend alot of time and money on beautiful rooms and only buy 1 sub. That second sub, if implemented properly, really brings the entire system together in my opinion. I'm assuming those are the EP-500's. Have you had a chance to listen to them yet, and if so, are they filling that big room with plenty of bass? If you have time, would you mind sharing your thoughts on the Axioms?
Yes I have the EP-500s. I previously had this entire speaker set in my last theater. The speakers themselves sound great. I had an issue with the old center channel, where it was placed too low and/or it wasn't putting out clear enough dialogue for me. Though, I have a new floorstanding speaker which replaces it with this theater. I also had to chain my two subs together (XLR-OUT on sub 1 to XLR-IN on sub 2) with my old Integra 9.8, but I didn't ever work with audessy on it. The subs were so loud that I couldnt turn the volume up more than just a tick above the lowest setting, but I'm assuming that's because I had no clue how to configure them with my Integra. At the time I never researched it.
This brings up one of the big issues I need to figure out in the next week before the carpet comes. So for speakers, Audessy is a pretty easy process. Set up the mic, and let the pre-amp do it's thing. Move the mic, repeat. But on the subs, there are several settings on the back, and I don't know what I should set them to prior to the Audessy configuration.
I just want to make sure I can set the sub at the right levels before I do the Audessy config and let Audessy set the values to their proper cutoffs.
What level should the Audio be at? (Help here)
What crossover setting should it be at? (I've read 150/bypass)
Phase (I'm assuming 0 for both)
Trim (I believe it is Remote, Flat, Half, Full, and I assume -flat- is the setting)
