I have run the Audyssey setup, and then checked the resulting Equalizer spectrum
. I noticed that for several of the speakers the audio level compensation was up to +/- 10 dB for certain frequency ranges. So I just wonder if it is normal for the audio level compensation to be that high (+/- 10 dB)?
Also, if you have a Marantz receiver (or some other A/V receiver), what does the Audyssey Equalizer spectrum
look like for your setup?
I don't have a Marantz receiver with Audyssey MultEQ XT32, mine is much older (SR18EX). But I do have a pre/pro (DHC-80.3) with Audyssey MultEQ XT32 but no "Equalizer spectrum".
By 'Equalizer spectrum' do you mean the Audyssey EQ results from the Marantz GUI (on-screen display)?
If that is what you mean you cannot accurately rely on this type of very rough graph representation.
It is way off from a true representation of what Audyssey MultEQ XT32 is doing in EQuing your speakers.
Those graphs in Denon and Marantz receivers and SSPs would have been better not showing @ all, IMO.
And that's why Onkyo/Integra never implemented them in their products; instead they use that extra processing power in other places more beneficial for their customers.
For a much accurate representation of Audyssey you would need to use REW with your laptop and a mic.
I'm sure there are few places in the Audyssey Setup Guide where this have been discussed; the experts here would know which section(s). ...Or in the Audyssey FAQ.
* I believe those EQ graphs go from -20dB to +10dB and I would simply ignore them. ...So yes, it's normal; that they aren't accurate.
