There are 4 versions of Audyssey: 2EQ, MultEQ, MultEQ XT, and MultEQ XT32

The 5005 uses MultEQ which hasn't changed how it processes the sub since inception, although as there is only (1) sub pre-out a moot point re: 2 subs anyway. The higher level models that have MultEQ XT32 also have dual sub pre-outs and can use a feature called Sub EQ HT which is able to handle dual subs separately, but only the SR7008, SR7009, and AV8801 currently have that feature.

Thanks, that helps me understand Audyssey better. I guess at least I can be happy the SR5005 doesn't have the first generation of it, 2EQ.

Not really a generation thing as 2EQ, MultEQ, and MultEQ XT were all introduced about 9 years ago at the same time, while XT32 and Sub EQ HT were first introduced in 2011. The lower models "NR" series continue to use MultEQ while the lower "SR" series (eg. SR5009) use the next level up MultEQ XT.

Well, after several days using the SR5005 I think I've decided it has too much bass with my speakers. With or without Audyssey it seems to be overpowering on the bass. I'd turn down the sub, but it's mainly coming out of the speakers, the sub isn't where I'm hearing the bass so much. Any suggestions?

Raise the crossover settings on the speakers to a higher setting.

I've tried raising it to 80hz, but above that I'll have to turn the crossover on the sub down from 110hz to 80 or it will probably introduce distortion. I guess I could set the knob on the sub at 80, and set the receiver higher, though then everything between what I have the receiver set to and the sub set to will be lost. Is this what you were suggesting? The sub is 12 inch, so it distorts at higher frequencies (even at low volume I think).

It? The crossover setting is applied to each speaker pair. All speakers at a minimum should be set to at least SMALL/80Hz. If the sub is distorting above 80Hz, then set it's LPF to 80Hz.

Yup, I have them set to small 80hz, the Audyssey setup had them set to large/40hz I think. So just to confirm, set the LPF on the sub lower than the signal being sent to it. In so doing, lose the frequencies not sent the the speakers, and filtered out by the sub. Is this correct?

If your sub is distorting > 80Hz, then yes.

I've owned a SR5005 since its inception and use it with a !5" Velodyne sub. The only time I might think I have too much bass is if the sub's volume is set too high. What's your's set at? Did you try simply turning it down?

Also, have you looked at the FAQ in the Audyssey forum in AVS? There's a whole section on how to set a sub prior to running Audyssey.

Well, I seemed to have tamed the bass a bit. I turned the channel level on sw to -5, and used tone control to reduce the bass by -4db and that seemed to have helped.

Sorry if I missed this but what volume do you have the sub set at?

The problem was all the frequencies sounded like loudness was left on (though it was not, and dynamic eq was off as well). Even if I shut off the sub it still sounded over saturated or something. I sold it.

Sr 5005 and audyssey

Ive had my sr 5005 for a few years (you can see my posts in this very thread.) This being my first ht system, i was in awe. I upgraded my speakers along the way, and and rocking a pretty modest but effective setup. Def tech all around with a ed a2300 sub.

I have been super happy with my system, but noticed some issues along the way that bothered me. Dolby digital content seemed to have a muffled center channel dialogue. Also found myself always switching dynamic volume on and off or adjusting the center channel all the way up to +12 db.

I visited my father in law who rocks deftech all around, and a pioneer avr. Well i was very taken a back with how open and "airy" the upper frequency range sounded.

Well i did some digging and saw lots of threads complaining about how audyssey set the center channels uppee frequency too low. So i switched audyssey off, and adjusted the eq of each speaker myself.

Result? I was floored. Feel like i have a brand new receiver. Im getting so much more detail and sound information that was missing. The bass is no longer heavy handed. No knock on audyssey as i know it works for lots of folks, but i followed every set up recommendation and it just didnt work out.

I hope this helps someone.... In the end.. DONT BE AFRAID TO MANUALLY ADJUST THE EQ OF EACH CHANNEL!
