Those RELs are subs, so why don't you simply set "Front L/R > Large" and "Subwoofer > None"?
i have taken multlple measurements in different seats in the listening area and they all are very good. i'm not going to say ruler flat as i've heard some audiophile friends exaggerate
, but if i recall correctly (these measurements were done 8 years ago when i moved into this house), i was at worst +/- 3 db from a reference level (70-80db...i can't recall what i used) over the whole frequency spectrum. regardless, the bottom line is the stereo source material sounded great on my 2 channel rig and i was happy with it.
and yes, one of my questions/suggestions i raised above was potentially to just give up and turn SW to None. (Front L/R are already set to Large)
the reason for me coming here was me trying to make the best use of my equipment and thought the SW would help things for the surround channels when used for home theater applications.
are there any modes that would convert the PCM to use just the Front L/R channels (i.e., 2.0 stereo) on the UMC-200? and still allow use of the SW for 5.1 channel applications?
if not, i guess my best choice, for now, is to set SW-> None, and then way until i can invest time and hard wire the Sub to the surround channels (using the sub's built in high pass filter on the high level inputs), and then set the surround channels to Large.*
this is probably the "best solution" but not something i can easily do at this time (requires running additional wiring and in the process, repositioning my current surround channels, setting up two additional channels (rear surrounds), and hoping that the newly positioned side surrounds would be out harms way from my two year old daughter)
i haven't had time to evacuate the house of my wife and daughter to try the Emo_Q mic and calibration. but based on what i have read here, the planar speakers will give me funky measurements.
* the nice thing about the sub is it was designed to be used with these satellites. either in a 5.1 system or a 2.1 system. so it blends nicely with them. its by no means a earth shaker (i think it only reaches to about 32hz or so), but worked well enough for home theater applications.
