Sorry about the .gif package. Here are the graphs in single form. I do not have a raw uncorrected file of the center+sub but I did measure both Dirac and YPAO center+sub so I will include those.

As Jerry already said you should keep all your speakers at the same distance UNLESS you are also running some that are not passing through Dirac. I have 4 Presence speakers that are not Dirac'd so...

Sorry about those pics. I thought I'd get fancy and overlay both results for an easier comparison and I ended up posting impulse graphs instead of ETC :o

So here are ETC graphs for the left...

Not sure if this an apples to apples comparison but I added the uncorrected room response of just the center channel to both the Dirac w/sub and YPAO w/sub graph. My center channel is literally 3...

Polar responses sure would be nice. Too bad virtually no manufacturers publish them. I can tell you that the spike shows up in every measured location used in every Dirac run I do. I can see it in...

That picture shows 1/6 octave smoothing. Here are both Dirac and YPAO with 1/24 smoothing and crossed over to subs at 80hz. The Dirac curve I was using the day I took this set of measurements was a...

Yes. Your AVR automatically boosts the LFE channel by 10db by design. If you want the LFE channel to "track" the other channels for a better visual appearance in REW then just remember to set the...

Question Cx-a5000 ypao r.s.c.

Is there anyway to disable the R.S.C. portion of a YPAO speaker auto setup routine besides doing a complete reset of the unit? I recently added a MiniDSP 88A with Dirac Live to my 11.1 channel setup...

Trying to successfully integrate 3 different models of subwoofers will likely be a nightmare. At the crazy low intro price I'd grab 4 Caps. You will probably also need some device like a miniDSP to...
