Sub 1 12.2 feet
Sub 2 12.0 feet


FR -7.5db
Center -12db
FL -8db
Subs (after boost) -3.0db on both

New reference volume is -2.0db because of center bottoming out. I found it to be 77db with 0.0 reference volume and a test tone, so I adjusted the other speakers up +2db to match. Subs were originally set to -10.0db, which is what I wanted. After boosting them 2.0db for the center, and then another 5.0db because I think it sounds better, I end up at -3.0db.
So what's your final volume on your towers and center?

I've looked at that one before.
If only it was for HT [emoji22]
Only goes down to 35hz.
135db sounds impressive though!

Not sure what you mean?

They are all set to 75db of course, and the new reference volume is -2.0db instead of 0.0 because of the center.


One another note, we watched taken 3 last night (I wont get into how good the movie wasn't) but spreading these speakers out obviously allowed them to breathe. I had zero complaints, and the dialog was crisp, clear, and throaty. Neeson has a pretty deep voice, and with the center and subs so close, it sounded like it was all coming from the screen (at -2.0db volume on preamp).

I think he means what is your db at -2.0?
