way to test for distortion and equal volume
I occasionally have distortion and static in my speakers. They are Paradigm prestige F75 towers. It's much more on the right than the left. Also, the right seems quieter as well. The Audyssey EQ graphs don't look too different and I have the fronts set at the same volume -1dB. If I lean toward the tweeter at a -20dB, I can hear a little static so it's not the cleanest signal.
This distortion generally happens during bass scenes but is not consistent. I generally listen with MV at -20dB at max. I have the crossovers set to 60Hz and theses speakers range goes down to 42Hz. I've had it happen with the cross-over at 80Hz as well.
So it could be the AVR, the speakers, or the speaker wire (banana plug).
1) Thoughts on this?
2) How can I test to see if they output coming out the same?
3) Is there a way to test for distortion?
I have a multi-meter, a measurement mic, and REW. So I have some means of testing.
I'm leaning speaker-wire then AVR as the culprits.
