As always, thanks everyone for the feedback, much appreciated.

I did use a tripod from my camera for the calibration, it's possible i exited out of the procedure prematurely, but i don't recall any prompt to reposition the mic.
That's a great point about the position of the center, as it's on a shelf a couple feet below ear level.

Once i have some more time without the kids running around, I'll redo everything and report back.

thanks again!

Hi Everyone,

I reran audyssey with all 8 postions (not sure what i did last time).
looking at the results i have some questions.

1) just calibration i had to adjust the sub to the correct db, although i do not have a volume, i adjusted the gain and xover freq until it was in the green - it did seem very low. The cali put it at 22.8 ft away from MLP, although it's beside my left front at 11.4ft from MLP. Does that seem correct?

2) defected fronts as large, should i keep them there?

3) the x-overs for front at full band, center is 80, surround is 120. Does that seem accurate?

My speakers are a house brand - 8ohm
Sub is a klipsch synergy 12

As always, input is appreciated.

Cheers!

1. After running Audyssey, most prefer to use the Manual Setup - Test Tones - Subwoofer and raise the level up about +5db. The sub "distance" is generally longer than the actual distance as it accounts for filters used in the sub.
2. Use Manual Setup to reset speakers set to LARGE to SMALL/80Hz which provides more headroom for the AVR and lets the sub handle what it does best.
3. Yup, although certainly doesn't hurt to run Audyssey a few more times over a period of weeks using slightly different mic positions to see if you prefer one Audyssey run over another.
