I am still holding out hope that I can make it work and get things sounding the way I want.

If not, I will most likely look at other speaker options.....but I really don't want to because I don't want have to deal with lugging those bad boys down the steps again. lol

At the end of the day if things are dialed in the best way they can and I am still not happy, then I have to look at my own expectations on what I am trying to achieve and figure out if is even possible.

Exactly why I think I may need a miniDSP to allow my front three channels to get a custom curve.


May have to do an Lbrown105 25db HOT from 20htz to 60htz, then start slowly dropping to flat around 150htz

Definitely. I just got my open drc and have been playing with the software a little before I put it into the chain. Seems quite easy so far to set filters and such.

Any speaker in those same positions would measure like that I would think?

Can you pull them out from the wall some? My baffles are more than 4 feet out from the wall and measure the best like this - in my room of course.

I hear you, I don't ever want to carry these again!

That is something I could look at doing. Probably would effect my toe-in due to how close they are to the screen.

Does anyone know if the minidsp nanoAVR can do custom curves for my front three channels?

And can it do it without using any other feature from the unit? I still want to use Audyssey as the room correction, just want the custom curves only.

I really like my 4. I HATED those little 2x4's, they always introduced noise into my system. The opendrc though has been perfect.
