Yeah sorry I didn't generate the new filters - was just checking on the top right settings in the screenshot - sorry for that confusion.

Yeah I always measure channel 4 when doing sub EQ. Only measure 1, 2, or 3 for full 10-20,000Hz sweeps. Will give your settings a try tonight. I remember using them previously netting in a nice sound for me. Do you still have that house curve file by the way?

You are misunderstanding how bass management and the Low Frequency Effects (LFE) channel are implemented. I will direct you here:

"The Misunderstood 0.1 LFE Channel in 5.1 Digital Surround Sound"

and here:

What is the LFE channel? - Dolby Laboratories

The bass management XO frequency has nothing to do with the brickwall LFE filter.

No, actually his Pioneer AVR is misunderstanding that the LPF for LFE should remain at 120Hz even when the crossover isn't 120Hz.

I'm quite aware of how it should work and I have read those articles several times before.

Yeah my "Elite" Pioneer applied the crossover as the LPF for LFE. So dumb...

Just cleared the PEQ to the 2 FV15HPs. I took this sweep. I think I am going to just leave it like this for a while and see how I like it. I feel like the PEQ is causing more problems in the actual sound than it's helping.

Can't turn it up too much tonight, my 2 year old is sleeping. But between the subs and the 4 tactiles I just installed, I think I just might have found my magic formula. Although I've said that many times! Will definitely need more time to try out different content at louder volumes.
