I was trying out ETC graphs for the first time and they look terrible with FL and SR in particular... but FR and CC and even SL to an extent look a lot better. In my setup FL is quite off axis while...

I am using the lfe inputs on my l22's. I also have the lfe setting in audyssey set to 120[/QUOTE]

Good to know, I guess that is an effect of the room then.

Let's put this in perspective. The alignment difference between the FL and FR speakers is .22ft, or .2ms. That is insignificant. The alignment difference between the FL and the SR (the timing...

Haven't quite figured out how to get the crossover right. Right now...

I think multiple subs is more about smoother frequency response at MLP and less variation around MLP. (If output of a single sub is well above actual listening levels.)

Also, because I generally don't like loud peaks I do aim for the MV that makes dialogue just clear enough to enjoy. If I want a bit more I crank it up 2.5dB to 5dB higher up to -30MV max.

*peaks with c weighting up to 86dB at -35MV, but generally a bit lower (75-80dB) because not all material has 0dBFS peaks constantly

I've seen you mention that you listen at around -35MV for quite some time now and I still can't quite wrap my head around it. http://www.avsforum.com//forum/images/smilies/confused.gif ...

I don't think those models would add too much over the LV12R unless you're listening at high volumes. The L12/F12 get less output than the LV12R even though they may extend deeper. The LVX12 is 1.5db...
