I am seriously considering getting the "audyssey installer pro kit" for my soon arriving Marantz AV8802
However, I do not seem to be able to locate any place to get one (no luck searching this tread).
If anyone knows where to get this kit or has a used one they are considering selling, please p.m. me

Thanks

I know @kbarnes701 used to have it and switched to Dirac. Might see if he wants to let it go.

I do still have mine but the carriage to the US would be quite costly I'd think, making it more or less as much as new kit.

If @Dionyz sends an email to scott@techht.com (or his AVS user name is getgray if a PM is easier), Scott will sort it out for him as he is a distributor of the Pro Kit. Tell him Keith sent you and he will give you a good deal

Subwoofer settings for Audyssey set up

Hi, I have an old Energy EPS-12 sub with 3 dials:

#1 . Low frequency Equalization
#2 . subwoofer level
#3 . subwoofer roll off frequency

I understand that the level should be set midway at 12 o'clock and possibly the roll off frequency at 150? Not absolutely positive on that one.
Can anyone tell me what the #1 and # 3 dials should be set at to run Audyssey setup? I couldn't find any reference to a low frequency equalization setting in any posts.
Thanks so much

Turn the "roll-off frequency" knob all the way up to get it out of the way

The level, I would actually start at around 1/3 instead of 1/2, but that's something you have to play with (just make sure you don't get maxed out at -12dB after Audyssey)

The "equalization" knob (as the little picture next to the knob indicates) is a mid-bass boost, basically sacrificing flat response and low frequency extension for more "slam" with a bump in the mid bass. However, Audyssey attempts to EQ your subwoofer FLAT, so if you add a bump in the mid-bass, Audyssey MultEQ will waste resources trying to flatten the bump out. In other words, set that knob to the minimum (0) setting so the response is as flat as possible. Then, AFTER calibration, you can play with that knob if you want to get a little more oomph with explosions in movies and stuff.

Fantastic, thank you so much! I just saw this post as I got off of batpigworld :-). That is an incredible site, a huge help and an entertaining read! Thanks again.
