Question for you all that are blasting your Polks calibrated by Audyssey...

Do you like what it does to their sound for music?? In my case, it's Audyssey MultEq xt 32... And I really despise what it does to my sound when in stereo. In fact, I now turn it completely off...Am I alone on my boat? And if you don't like it either, what do you do not like about it's effect on the sound?

The A1's make nice sounding surrounds, but the 6" woofer in the A3's would perfectly match your A7's, Fxi's and center. I'd say go for the A3's if you can afford them, though the smaller A1's are easier to place if they will be wall mounted.

I'm leaning towards the A1's due to size and they still might be too deep unless I can figure out another way to mount them, thanks

All of that sounds great. If I may, FXiA6's for rears and RTiA 3's for heights. And another "if I may", the up and coming XPA-7 can be used as a 5ch by bi-amping your mains with the two outside channels each side, or a cable that's four into 2, four off the amp into 2 at the speaker.


BTW, I'm new, are polk speakers any good?? What good is a "wide" and is there such thing as a "narrow"?

Hey, Geoff... great to see you again! Did Dan send you here after all this time? Your name just came up a few posts up regarding amping some M70's/Tsi500's.

I'm guessing the G+ forum is keeping you guys well occupied. For me it was too many "notifications" from my phone and way much more talk about food and drink and not enough about audio. But that's just me. Are you still in your downsized place and subless? BTW I'm running subless now too as we're in a condo, and actually getting used to it.

It's amazing what we can used to!!!!


No on the Dan que, just coincidence that I popped in. Yeah, I don't hang out at the G forum so much anymore, been pretty busy.


I'm fixin to get ready to try and qualify for a house, my wife and daughter have been with me since the summer and we need a bigger place.........the batch pad just isn't cutting it


I just started making my own IC's, pretty nice if I do say so myself, it's all about connection and shielding. I've forgotten how insert images or I'd show you some of my latest.


I hope all is well my friend, talk to you soon!!!

I run my new Polks (RTi9's) off xt32, and think it does a fairly good job. That being said I much prefer the 'Audyssey Flat' setting. The regular Audyssey will roll off the highs, which might arguably be OK for home theater, but kind of sucks for music. Try the flat setting, I think you'll see an improvement.

Same here. I've only had XT32 for almost a year, but very impressed with the increased detail and accuracy where HT is concerned.


2ch in stereo mode from the Integra has always been great.

Nice, those were the days!!! I forgot to mention, I'm trying to get a 2ch set up of my own together. I recently acquired the ERC-3, great little CD player. Once I get my hands on a pair of 703's, I'll have every thing I need for a separate 2ch rig including AVR, amp and cables.

IIRC I think I was using the Audyssey flat setting on my home rig... but more important, it seems that some material definitely sounds better without EQ. Two cases that come to mind, I remember that Celtic Woman sounds thin without Dynamic EQ, but Blue Man Group is too way boomy with Dynamic EQ on so I always turn it off. When playing something new it generally becomes apparent within seconds whether or not the material calls for EQ.

Question about shelving... while you guys are here, I gotta ask for recommendations for any ample and sturdy shelving for some heavy duty amps. Back home I had an Emo sitting on top of the equipment cabinet, as it's too big to fit inside. And I had to install a fan inside to keep the AVR cool. I'm looking for something more suitable.

Some of you have posted pics of your racks/shelving and when I inquired about one, was told it was "Flexi rack". But when I googled the name I only found instructions on how to build your own... nothing I can just buy and assemble. I've looked at HD for prefab shelving but most of it is too small and too thin to support the weight of a hefty power amp, much less three of them.

I bought a nice TV stand for a 70 incher that looked like it would accommodate some equipment on the lower shelves, but when I got it assembled and went to place the gear I discovered that the struts reinforcing the shelves were about a half inch too low, protruding into the shelf space below and prevented pushing the AVR all the way in. I'm sure a smaller AVR would fit, but not my Denon monster.

Ultimately I will have the Denon and two Emo's probably on a free standing three shelf open air rack and leave the TV stand for smaller gear such as the BR player, cable box and such. Any suggestions? I'm not into woodworking but have fabricated a few pieces in the past out out of necessity. Thanks for any pointers.

Look for salamander designs they are probably the best. I have had luck with ikea besta units fitting my emo amps and avr.

Question about subwoofers.

Can you take your sub line and use a "Y" cable and add a 2nd sub to 1 output? Wouldn't mind adding a 3rd sub to my system.

Yes you can. Many AVR's that might have two sub outs usually have an internal "Y", except the higher end units.
If the AVR offers separate sub EQ it would be touted in the specs. You will need to trim the sub levels manually.

About 15 minutes ago I ordered a regular y adapter with 2 female ends and a 35 ft sub cable for 25 bux shipped. I love amazon.

I recently got 2 psw505s for 169 each, excellent subs for a normal home theater system. I put my older 12" sony on craigslist for $50, but now knowing that I can add it to my system via the Y adapter I'm gonna just keep it. Maybe I'll stick that one behind my couch or option 2 is behind the tv (I've got a corner set up).

I am not a fan of the psw505 but you will have a hard time getting them to paly well with that sony. You may need to get a minidsp since those subs lack any eq settings.

Thanks for the pics Dan. The three shelf version is just what I was thinking of, and the black model is priced just right.

I saw that on NewEgg last week, and if I didn't already have a matched pair of subs would have jumped on it right away!

Yes, the roll off for the highs is what turns me off... On the flat setting it's not up to my tastes, but hey, maybe it's because my measurement positions or my audyssey settings aren't ok... I'll recalibrate eveything this week end and try the audyssey flat setting again... Xt32 is somewhat complicated and I didn't take the learning curve...

In fact, I think they miss that place too , since the occurences of their visits seem to increase... Just wait a little, it will come back to what it was, and that thread will flourish with activity once again

And I miss some of the G+ pals too...

In fact, I think they miss that place too , since the occurences of their visits seem to increase... Just wait a little, it will come back to what it was, and that thread will flourish with activity once again

And I miss some of the G+ pals too...
LOL, you're close to being one of the old group, and this is the first time I've popped in, in a long while and glad to see familiar folks.

Spinning the rear tire at 150mph while at 3/4 lean angle will put wrinkles in your seat

Thanks man! And for the record........you ARE from the core group


So um, you want fire power? I have already gotten permission to grab the XPA-7 once we're settled into a new place. My wife is dying for me to have a dedicated room so she doesn't have look at foam

I will employ an 11.2 for starters, eventually moving up the sub chain. I will have my four A9 front stage again and powering the mains with 400wpc and the wides with an XPA-2.


The other stereo amp will go to a dedicated 2ch rig. Oh yes my friend, I have plans that include firepower and lots of it
