I wouldn't have an itch to upgrade from JTR S2's either. Hell, I have Seaton Submersive HP's and have no desire to upgrade. I've listen to 10db over reference plenty of times and have yet to see the...

Yes, this all makes sense. The GIK panels don't have a solid back, but are in a wooden frame. So maybe moving the speakers closer to the wall, increasing the frequency at which the dip occurs to a...

Something is wrong. Two very good processors that don't sound good rules out a processor issue. You're room appears to have enough treatments that, even if not ideal, should be adequate to give you...

If there are any left after Christmas and I haven't been completely sucked dry, I may get a pair myself.

Ah, gotcha ;) just relative to the M2's/Revels.



I've done this before whenever I'm able to be home alone. Most I've ever gotten to was 10 db OVER reference level. Probably very stupid on my...

They're between 100hz and 200hz. Frequencies that the speakers play, the subs are surprisingly flat.



Yes I have tried that, doing that hides a bit too much detail I found. I think I need...

If I was designing a theater room from scratch, I'd probably go the SCL route, just to keep things clean looking without speaker boxes jetting out of the wall and every angle. And I think you are...

I did use quick measure when adjusting the placement of my speakers (as much as I possibly could change their position) and in positioning the room treatments. It's strange, removing a GIK 242 panel...

I have to order a UMIK1 to take some good measurements. I don't think REW accepts the Anthem Mic calibration file.

I think hearing the Anthem processor made the faults noticeable on the Integra...

It's probably not completely accurate, but it's what I had at my disposal. I'm definitely gonna order a UMIK1. I gotta learn how to use REW a little better also. I took the measurements and have the...

Yup, pretty sure. On the back of the Cats, there are mute buttons and you can individually mute each individual amp/driver. I muted each one and confirmed that they are all working. The dual 12's,...

Yes I have. They still have that veiled sound, but also sound a little thinner without the EQ-ing. The EQ-ing brings up the dips which makes the sound fuller, but may also make the veiled sound more...

Thanks for the link. Once I download the trial, how do I implement it? I would need a mini-dsp with Dirac, no?

I managed to shoehorn the tri-traps into the front corners of the room which helped...

It must be a characteristic of the room or the Cat 12C's. Audyssey must have really boosted the high frequencies above 5khz with the Integra which allowed the speakers to sound the way they did. Now...

Yup, that's exactly the problem I'm having. Both with 2 channel and multi-channel. Vocals just sound muffled in comparison to how Audyssey had them set with the Integra pre/pro. I'd say it's pretty...

If I was Trump, this wouldn't be a problem lol.

I wonder if that slight edgy-ness or "harshness" can be controlled with some gentle eq-ing. For surround speakers, I can't imagine it being...
