Maybe a little advice here. I am having an Audyssey Pro calibration in two weeks and I am very excited. I am wondering if dynamic EQ (which I absolutely love by the way...best thing since sliced bread) boosts the sub channel in the same manner whether you use one of the preset Audyssey curves or if you manually alter the curve . The Pro version has a curve editor that allows calibrators to customize the frequency response......does anyone know if customizing that curve would effect how much Dynamic Eq boosts the bass. Thanks.
Also regarding multXT which I use for now........I like a little extra bass...nothing crazy, but I usually find that I raise the Audyssey trim by 2 db. It sets it at -10 and I raise it to -8.
If I were to leave it at -10 (dynamic EQ on), how would the bass compare to raising the subs trim to -8 (dynamic EQ on).
My understanding is that dynamic EQ would boost the bass more when sub trim is -10 than when I manually raise it to -8. So would dynamic EQ's more aggressive boost at -10 negate my raising of the subs trim (since at -8 dynamic EQ is boosting less). I am thinking it would not negate it, but would tighten the spread so to speak.
What if I left the sub trim level at -10 in the AVR, but raised the gain on my sub by one or two clicks? This would fool dynamic EQ......but maybe there are negatives to this approach as well. Thoughts. Thanks.
Edit: Just had a thought that if I were to leave sub trim at -10 in the AVR and raise the gain on the sub by 2 db... then I would in reality be getting sub volume of -8 with dynamic EQ correction curve associated with -10.
Also, this is all based upon the fact that I watch the majority of my movies at -20 to -18 max.....wife factor. I really love how dynamic EQ makes movies impactful even at -20
