The dip is gone, that is for certain. But at what price? With your mains set to large, they will receive the full force of all those loud low bass passages that you love to play in your movies. I...

I assume you will share with us how much better the response gets? Is it only slightly better, or significantly better?

Yes, at this time it is important to know if the dip is present when only...

I don't understand. Step 4.a says to output the speaker level-setting test tones from the AVR. Playing the AVR test tones isn't a REW thing. The AVR test tones should play regardless of whether...

Well, bygones...

Time to set the sub phase back to zero and try the sub tweak adjusting AVR distances. Let's hope it makes a difference.

Changes in the configuration menu don't take effect until you exit the menu. Thought you would have known that, Murray. Now try that 60' setting and see if it sticks when you exit the menu.

I think now is the time to ask other 8802 owners to conduct a test. I am not that familiar with who here has both the 8802 and measurement tools. Hopefully someone will step forward.
