Will soon be gain matching my soon to arrive second FV15HP sub with the one I already have and the guide I am using has Audyssey as an example. Audyssey EQs with test tones at 75db, making the desired gain matched subs outputting combined gain of 75db at MLP. Can anyone here tell me what db level MCACC uses during auto calibration? I have a Pioneer VSX-44 which I believe is the basic MCACC.

Thanks!

Combined gain will be higher (otherwise polarity is wrong).

Did you really need to quote that entire post in your reply?

Right according to the guide - you want the output db for each sub (with mic at distance of 11% of cone diameter, so little less than 2" for 15" cone), to be same such that the combine output of both is 75db at MLP, for Audyssey. The reason is that when Audyssey runs its test tones, it does so at a volume of 75db. So my question was, what is the db volume at which MCACC outputs test tones during auto-calibration?
