When I asked to see an RT60 I meant the full range 20-20K, and I should have specified to display it as 1/3 octave. Then set the upper bound to 1 or 2 seconds, to better see the data rather than all scrunched up at the bottom.
Thanks Ethan. REW sends its test signal only on the right channel. My receiver therefore only outputs through the right front loudspeaker and the subwoofer. I unplugged the right loudspeaker in order to test only the sub per my understanding of what Amir was saying. This is with DPLIIx engaged in music mode. I think it would have to be a stereo source rather than a monaural source such as REW test signals to output all on 5.1 speakers.
Reading the Panny receiver manual, it says, quote: "When you set the front speakers (LR) as "Large" 1) The subwoofer also makes audio output in the bass range when you perform stereo playback of analog and PCM sources. 2) The subwoofer sends out only the LFE (low frequency effect channel) signal contained in 2-channel Dolby Digital or DTS sources when you play them in stereo." End quote.
I can take a measurement 20 Hz - 20 KHz with REW, however, my understanding is that it will be the right loudspeaker plus the subwoofer only. I'll try a Y-splitter momentarily to see if I can get the receiver to output the monaural signal to all channels.
I will post the results right away in the following post.
