MCACC is not very good!

It applied large to my 7 KEF LS50! It also messed up the distance accuracy by a mile! In addition the sound is not very good

I will run it again hope it improves

You want your sub to be as close to 0 as you can get it. And 0 on the rec not the sub itself. I think my sub is bout the 4 o'clock position (pb12nsd)

So do a calibration. If the sub is -4 crank it down a bit and recalibrate till it calibrates to a 0?

I usually put the sub vol about 15% of the total. Thats about 8' o clock... Then after MCACC I can raise the vol to 12' o clock if needed

What issues are you having? Lack of bass? Lack of highs?

Ok, still having trouble getting the best off my subs on a 9.2 setup (no surround backs) with my SC-75. Sound is really good, crisp and very detailed with music and powerful on movies, but still think I can do much better and could get more punch. I followed instructions from this link to set the MCACC:

http://www.avforums.com/threads/how-...-mcacc.986641/

Also, it seems almost impossible to get the calibrator to set sub sound level on 0 as recommended, since the front sub has manual volume control (which I set to 8 o clock) and the rear sub relies entirely on the receiver since it has no volume knob (both Kef´s). Best I could get was a -5.

Any ideas will be very welcome.

Finally, is there any chance at all that the new 2 Sub Eq on this year´s line could be available for last year´s Elite line through a software update?

Thanks!
