Anthem D2/D2v/AVM50/AVM50v/ARC1 tweaking guide

^ have you tried eliminating the sub temporarily and set the main speakers to full range to see if you like the bass better on music?

You could also try without the Center speaker if you are using that for music.

Should probably make little difference since music contains very little if any LFE.

True but his speakers can play down to 30Hz which many bass notes from Jazz, drums and Organ notes reside. The mains will not have the same heft as the subwoofer in the bass notes however...

gerard1meehan,
How do you listen to your music?? I'm not concerned about how many glasses of wine you have while listening, just how many speakers are you using when listening to music?
I have a 6.1 setupand use all speakers and subs for movies and sports. I prefer my music in stereo. Since my fronts are bookshelf's I include my subs and use 2.1 for music. I do separate movie and music runs during my ARC readings. ARC consistently sets my room gain and sub level for music 1-2 dB less and it sounds excellent. Plenty of punch for lfe in movies and smooth, tight bass for music.


With your fronts (look like S8's?) setting them to full range and doing a music run with just those 2 speakers (no sub) would be my suggestion. It takes a little longer to do the ARC run when you do both movie and music sweeps. In your case it would take 1/3 to 1/4 the time to do music compared to movie. I can't tell if you run 5.1 or 7.1 for movie. Well worth the little time it takes. 'N'-ing out speakers in a 'same as' run does not work as well as doing separate movie and music runs. In my experience it leaves the room gain the same and makes music bass boomy.


If you do listen to your music in stereo (or even in Anthem Logic Music) do a separate ARC music run for just the speakers you're using. It will take a little extra time, but it looks like you are willing to spend the time (and bucks) to get it right. I second dmusoke's Great theatre BTW.
