Sorry for me being the uneducated chum here, but care to explain what 2nd order high pass means? I'm just trying to think where I want to get at here.

My room is perhaps just a bit too boomy at...

Does this mean my PC13-Ultra in Sealed mode with two foam plugs inserted will act as 12Hz port tune? Just wasn't sure because you said "2nd order high pass," and I didn't know if that meant that I...

I'll check later, but I just ordered mine six weeks ago. Granted, it was from the outlet store, but it's not the one with 20Hz, 15Hz, 10Hz port tuning. This one has 20Hz and 16Hz. I'm willing to bet...

If I select the Sealed tune with two ports plugged, is it true that acts as a 12Hz port tuning?

etc, I think mine is boomy because of the corner it's in. I'm trying Sealed mode right now, and although I have not tried to blast reference level or anything like that, the "boom" effect I have is...

Okay, I shall give it a try.

Would I have to whip out the SPL meter to re-calibrate again?

By the way, total guess, but my room is probably over 1800 cubic ft, but it is also completely open to...

I certainly can, but would I feel like I'm losing something at the 16Hz range (for movies) if I select that option?

My room isn't huge huge (will have to measure later), but it's hard to measure...

I bought them off Craigslist. Been in contact with the guy for over a month to set a time to meet, and I was finally able to pick them up.

Yamaha RX-V667

Just pulled my sub out and noticed my HPF and LPF settings were disabled, which I'm sure is just fine. If enabled, the highest the HPF can go is 125Hz. Did not check the low on LPF...

I honestly don't even know where to set my sub setting. If it's on the subwoofer itself, I think most everything I left at default (even the dB is at 0, ranging from -10 to 10, and let YPAO set the...

Just upgraded to RC-62II and RF-82II's.

Any recommendation to one crossover frequency? Is 80Hz okay for these bad boys?

But when it comes to Blu-ray, I'm not a fan of the AR shifting.
