I have read all the instructions, it mention the length should be around 12 inch from the seat back, but I just wonder if I have 12 inch space between the seat back, the real distance will be move forward 3 - 4 inches, will it affect the overall balance of the sound, like the surround back speaker louder than the front speaker, or the subwoofer distance will be shorter than the real subwoofer distance?

Okay, it was a bad mic that came with my 4520. Used the 7009 mic with the 4520 and was able to benefit from DEQ downstairs. No more over powering bass (don't have surround downstairs). And all this time I could have had a better experience with my 4520 in the media room

Every thing sounds even, the surrounds, 4 ceiling speakers , and subs sound great unlike with the 4520. The center channel is much more clear on all content and I didn't have to bump it up dB or two.

The other very strange thing is the 7009 said my subs were way to high. When level matching they are above in the red. The 4520 never said they were too high as I had them match at about 71 dB (through Audyessy) because of all the bass DEQ gave (I ran Audyessy a number of times on the 4520 all with the same results). But even before I had the 4520 I had level matched each sub to 75 dB with an SLP meter.

Not sure why the 7009 would have produced very different results but I am now a fan of DEQ.

To further test things, I moved the 4520 downstairs to see how Audyssey and DEQ would sound on my 3.1 setup in my living room. Living room is large, open concept with very high ceiling. Thought maybe the 4520 just didn't like my mediaroom but then thought why would the 7009 produce better results than the 4520? Anyway, after running Audyssey and applying DEQ the bass is still too powerfull just like the mediaroom.

Any ideas as to why the two different resutls between the 7009 and 4520? Could my mic for calibration been bad on the 4520? Thought it was interesting and wanted to pass along.

I think this happens quite a bit, with all of the complaints that I have heard of "Audyssey ruined my sound". I'm not saying that is true for all experiences, but most likely for quite a few of them. It's definitely handy to have another compatible mic to try.

Experimenting with different "variables" is always beneficial.
