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).

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?

I recently purchased in 801 I'm using it in a 7.1.4 configuration my question is when my height 2 speakers are set to rear high Will they produce Dolby atmos affects. I have always had onkyo receivers so the MCACC stuff is new so far I am really enjoying

Has anyone had an issue running avnavigator 2013 on their mac? I can not open the MCACC appi to view the graphs of my speaker readings. I connect to my receiver, I can download the file, but when I click on MCACC appi it just does not open.

You will not be able to decode the Atmos information, but the AVR will generate sounds for those speakers, so you'll get "effects," just not Atmos.

Yep. Downloaded it directly from the SC-75's page. MCACC appi will open for a second and then shut down.

So if I have them set to top rear they should work for atmos information?

Is it this one?
http://www.pioneer-audiovisual.eu/eu...ducts/sc-lx801
If so, it is Atmos capable and will calibrate and generate the appropriate sounds in your height speakers.
Sorry, I had trouble finding the exact model with the info you provided.
There's a forum for them here:
Pioneer SC-LX701 / SC-801 / SC-LX901 Receviers
and MCACC info here:

Sorry if this has been asked, but haven't seen an answer through the first 20 pages or so. My SC-75 sets each speakers level between -4 and -8. I have a very large living room so I have to crank it up to like -15 for a movie and if I use airplay, I have to turn it up louder. If I raise the individual channel levels, or the system level, it seems like it would take some stress off of having to turn the amp up really loud. If it does, does it matter whether I do it after MCACC has calibrated everything or should it be done after the first MCACC and I'm changing my speakers to small, because it defaults to high? Would it have an effect if it's done after? Thanks.

Raising the channel levels will do the exact same thing as increasing the volume as far as the amps are concerned. As long as you're not exceeding 0 db volume limit and not hearing distortion then my opinion is to not worry about the number showing on the screen.

My setup: Sonus Faber Venere 2.5 and center, Ascend HTM200SE surround, NHT atmos minis, dual Rythmik L12's, Pioneer SC-95, Outlaw M200, Samsung PN60F8500

Thanks. By 0 db volume limit, you mean 0 on the receiver? I know it can go louder, but I've never had to turn it up that loud.
