Received the new ARC kit Friday and had limited time to make some runs. I made the runs on the standard, not advanced program.
I am confused regarding the target curve provided by the ARC program for my D2 in the music mode that I use.
For the music mode I am running only the front speakers - no subwoofer, no surrounds, no rears. Therefore, the front speakers are set as full range. I use a sub/sat combination on each of my front speakers.
The confusing thing is that the target curve for the front speakers that ARC uses is still a waterfall curve, even though the measurements show that my system is more than capable of providing a full range response (yes - I still have some balancing to do on the settings between the fronts and the subs and I am working on that...).
It is using the same waterfall curve as my movie setup, in which it is seting the front crossover way too high (115 Hz) for the response, which is also forcing the sub crossover high than it should be (120 Hz).
My curves for movies and music are attached - remember I am still finding a balance point between the front speaker combination - I need to lower the volume on the subs and increase their crossovers from 80Hz - 100 Hz and see what happens.
The first run results did show me that I had the left sub out of phase with the speaker it was running with - I was able to get that fixed...
