Keith,

You have already gotten a couple of suggestions and I hate to add any more, but I would recommend amending the following:

There is one caveat to the advice above: if adjusting the AVR...

I would suggest trying (listening to it) both ways. Without a sub in your system, I am not sure that there is any inherent advantage to raising any of your crossovers from wherever your AVR set...

I had a situation a few months ago where I had moved one of my front speakers too close to a built-in cabinet and was getting a really gnarly resonance at what I guessed was around 80hz. I...

Jerry,

I understand what you are saying, and I think "concern over the lack of information" would be pitching it a little too strongly for me. But I have certainly been curious about what...

Crossover Settings

For my own purposes, I would be content with the current Audyssey crossover implementation, if two additional pieces of information were made available. First, I would like to know the actual F3...

I took a quick look at the 909 and it does seem like a beast, but I think you will be very happy with Marantz. XT-32 is a significant upgrade from XT. The FAQ, linked below, has some detail on the...

I can't really say whether Audyssey is too bright in general. I actually prefer Audyssey Flat, so I guess that wouldn't be true in my room and for my taste. But XT-32 seems to be particularly...

Hi Dave, and welcome! We have all been new owners at one time or another. As JD says, the bi-amping you are doing won't really help you. It's really just a marketing device. You can research "passive...

I have seen others that were similar. You can have 20-30db peaks or dips in certain parts of the room depending on specific room modes. People on both this thread and the Audyssey thread have advised...

The -3db setting is a perfectly good setting, and manually adding bass from your AVR is the best way to go. You should be able to add a fair bit from -3 without running out of adjustment (before...
