I hooked up the fronts with only speaker wire. I have a mic tripod and ran through the setup like normal. Audyssey reports to the AVR to set my front crossovers to 150hz which does not seem accurate at all, let alone the gap between the sub.
For comparison, my Polk Audio RTi8's in the exact locations in the exact room were registering at 40hz.
Any suggestions? Is this have something to do with the nature of the speakers? I've already went through the FAQ and understand that Audyssey is calculating the -3db point but 150hz just seems off and messes up the sound.
I've gotten weird crossover points out of Audyssey before as well. Not quite THAT weird, but you know......
My latest calibration I used all 8 positions instead of stopping at the minimum of 3...and I feel much more confident in the results. My SM 65's measured 60hz on the front L/R mains, and 40hz on the other 5 speakers.
I'd probably discard it as an anomaly and do another calibration.
