When I set test tones on my Onkyo TX-NR709 and use the UMIK with REW as an SPL meter, it shows 90db output...my phone with an app shows 60-ish...I already know my phone is not very accurate, but I have to believe that there is no way this is 90db...I thought these tones were supposed to be 75? I cannot adjust the Onkyo enough to make it that low.
What is the aimed-for level when using Onkyo test tones and is the UMIK-1 with REW reliable SPL meter? SHould I set it on A/C/Z (and the 90db was in C weighting, it goes down to 84 in A weighting)
I ran to radio shack but they were out of meters, and only carry the digital one (is that one ok?) I guess I will have to order one online..best under 100 bucks? Galaxy, PE, Radio Shack?
EDIT: I hooked up my audyssey mic to the onkyo, when it reads 87, the UMIK reads 101...so definitely off. For some reason Audyssey has me turning one sub down -32DB and the other about the same...thats a lot of cut on the subs...especially since i have a 5k cuft space with only 800wrms of subwoofer.
