12 dB attenuators arrived, so I added them in and ran an 8-point Audyssey calibration a few nights ago. LCR trims were set at -3 (which means without the attenuators they wanted to be around -15, so they were 3 dB hot when the AVR maxed the trim at -12) and the Cap S2 was set at -4. I bumped the subwoofer trim up 5 dB hot to +1.
I need to get some measuring equipment so I can see what is going on, but overall the attenuators did reduce the buzz from the Sherbourn amp and they allowed Audyssey to correctly level match all speakers. I'm still not sure why, but the Cap S2 seems to be limited by Audyssey, I have yet to experience any bass as powerful as I was expecting.
I have a question on the Audyssey test tones, specifically the subwoofer tones. Is it normal for the sub to barely be making any noise when Audyssey is running its calibration? Seems to be very quiet, but I guess that may be normal.
Here are the current speaker settings.
Left is 8.9 ft and -3 trim.
Center is 7.7 ft and -3 trim.
Right is 8.6 ft and -3 trim.
Subwoofer is 10.0 ft and +1 trim (5 dB hot, Audyssey set at -4).
I am watching S1E4 of Game of Thrones right now, nothing too dynamic in this episode yet but everything is crystal clear.
