When you say DEQ are you referring to Dynamic EQ?...

When you say DEQ are you referring to Dynamic EQ? If so that might explain the muddy sound. As it will be pumping up the bass in those low frequencies.

Air in treble is a funny thing isn't it?...

Yeah -1 on treble is nice. Just takes an edge off. To the expense of a little air tho.

I run two very reasonable DAC's for music. The Oppo HA-1 pre-amp and Arcam irDAC. The Arcam is the better. So...

Murray isn't it? I meet you once when I picked up a Oppo BDP83.

Nice explanation. Thank you.

I did find Flat added a nice amount of dimensionality to the music. Not bad instrument separation. Something I'm used to hearing in my tube amp. I might throw it on...

What do you guys find is the best Audyssey setting for 2 channel music?

I've cycled through the various options and I picked either Flat or Byp. L/R.

I thought it was funny I picked Byp. L/R...

Yes. Both of you guys are correct.

I won't say anything bad about SVS. Damn when the rattle the room they themselves sound absolutely amazing.

EQing the crap out of them is my only solution...

Agreed. It is not the subs fault. They sound great as they rattle the room.

I mainly have two issues. The frequency chart I originally posted is awful. A fluctuation of 20db over 5Hz is a...

Okay,

I had another go last night. My 10th go at Audyssey.

I pulled the connection for the back Polk sub. Went into the Audyssey menu and told it I had one sub. Turned of all EQ on the two...

No buttkickers are not controlled by Audyssey. They just tap off a sub line. Then you have a separate volume control to raise them up and down to the desired level. My level seems high. I have three...

I have a few of those films. I really like that era. The epic film. I can't say I noticed the lack of bass. However I haven't seen them in the Theaters. So I have nothing to compare with. I remember...

If it works out I might just sell the Polk and buy more shelving. I always need more. I have over 1800 blu-rays now. 230 unwatched. :eek:

I will just get something made to go in the gap and fit...

Okay. You guys are talking me into it.

I think I will calibrate with the SVS subs on only. Then leave the Polk off permenately. If it sounds good I will sell the Polk and buy a third SVS SB ultra...

If I turn the SVS subs down just below the rattling threshold they usually sound crap. Like nothing at all. So low that they might as well have been turned off. No warmth, no punch, just the...

Excellent advice. I can't sell the Polk PSW1200. It is too good. It is outperforming the SVS's. I also can't connect the SVS's independently to SW1 and SW2. The SVS's are chained. SW1 goes to the...

Yes. I have 3 subs. Two times a SVS SB ultra 13's and one Polk PSW1200 (which has two 12" drivers).

You have a good frequency curve. I would be happy with that. I might try Audessey again with...
