The Audyssey sub setting is giving me some problems. I was hoping someone here may have solved something similar, or be an expert on this.
Emotiva MPS-1 running the 7 non-sub channels (those channels calibrate just fine)
Axiom Epic 80-600 7.1 (so that's an Axiom EP600 sub)
Connected to DTC-9.8 using XLR cable
Settings = Phase = 0, Trim = Flat, Crossover = Bypassed.
So here's what happens:
- I have the volume on the EP600 set to where it just kicks in to be audible (this is at maybe 10% of the entire range of the volume control - very, very low)
- When I run Audyssey setup, the DTC-9.8 reports -15.0 dB (that's the max on the 9.8)
- If I turn the volume on the EP600 down just a gazillionth of an inch and re-run Audyssey setup, the sub section of the test becomes no longer audible and reports +12 dB (the other extreme)
- If I turn the volume on the EP600 up just a gazillionth of an inch and retest, I get -15.0 dB again.
Possibilities in my brain:
Sub is too much of a beast for this space?
Volume knob isn't functioning properly? (Unlikely - it does go louder and softer through its entire range except for that lowest 10% or so)
Hopefully it's something else that I'm missing. I hope it's just something stupid.
Any ideas on how I can get this thing set at a good, (not -15.0 dB) level?
