Also, I hope that was a typo and you have the V3.10 firmware in the Anthem. You should not be running v2.10 firmware on a D2v/3D.

While you are at it, check what version of the ARC setup app you are using on your Windows computer. It should be v3.0.2.

If you have the wrong versions. Update and do a fresh ARC run.

Yes I had a few Typos. I am running 3.10 and the latest ARC,

Doing some further research I do believe I have my fronts too close to the side and back walls.

ARC charts to follow

And

Use a mirror to find the reflection points on the side walls. Those bare side walls have to be causing you problems.
As a starting point move the Sub 1 into the left corner before you run Anthem PBK.
Move the LF and RF speakers about 3 ft from the rear wall and 3 ft from the side walls
before you do the mirror reflection test.
Run PBK. Then set all your levels and bypass the SUb 1 crossover then Run ARC

I am hoping a few of you folks could point me in the right direction. I have owned my D2v/3d for some time now and have had a few posts and replies on our little forum. After 2 years, 1 month, and 4 days I finally completed my home theater project. It was only 1+ year over my projected time line, and my budget went out the window in the 5th month.

That said I have a 16.5 wide by 27.5 long room with 8 ft ceiling. I have one window at the back of the room. (pictures atatched)

Equipment:
Pre pro D2v (running 2.10)

Sources:
Oppo 103
Clear Audio Turntable with CONCERTO V2i cartage
Saunders Audio Phono stage
Sonos
Otari Reel to Reel
Direct TV

Speakers:

Paradigm Signature for all

S8 v2 right and left front
C5 v3 Center
ADP3’s for all surrounds (7.1)
Sub1

Amplification:

Anthem Statement p5 runs the center and 4 surrounds
One Anthem Statement p2 powers left front
One Anthem Statement p2 powers right front

Display:

Panasonic ZT60 (fully set up for future projector)


So I have run a few ARC setups and I am not too happy with the sound. I have had this system in other rooms while this was being built and I was happier with the sound. Of course I do not have my Arch results to post right now, but I think I am starting out wrong. I have never run the bas kit for the Sub and only have used ARC to correct. I have seen post that state that I should run that first ten ARC. Is that Correct?

I feel the room is very booming I do need some absorbers and diffusers but I believe my speaker placement is off as well.

Looking for a starting point form the peanut gallery
Ok,

Last evening when I got home I did maneuver the speakers and sub around.

The front speakers are now 6.5 feet from the rear wall and 3.5 feet from the side walls.

I move the sub into the front right corner


Then I ran Arc in automatic ( forgot to run the sub correction)

See charts.
