I think that your measurements look better with every iteration. It would be good to see a combined measurement of the two mains and the sub, though. Measurements aside, how does the system sound...

All of that sounds right to me. I do think that imaging is mainly a function of getting a good focused response from the tweeter, and perhaps from the mid-range in a three-way speaker, as well. So, I...

As you would expect, you are getting a good cross-section of opinions. Speaking personally, I don't think I could ever be happy with a soundbar, coming from a good 2.1 or larger system, especially if...

I think it may be possible to concentrate more resources in a specific area. So, if for instance there was still a 6db dip at about 60Hz after Audyssey ran, you might be able to smooth that out more...

Hi,

I'm sorry to hear about your trouble. I had something similar happen recently, and it's very frustrating. Strange as it sounds, I have had both a defective power cord and a defective subwoofer...

I think your last graph shows an improvement. Once you get the speakers adjusted the way you want, try re-running Audyssey to see how much it can help with the peak just under 40Hz and the dip at...

I don't know much about the new app, but the creation of a target curve wouldn't change Audyssey's fundamental inability to boost a null. My understanding of nulls is the same as yours. Changing the...

I honestly don't know if there is a good rule-of-thumb for speaker distance from a wall. I think I was probably reacting more intuitively in looking at the photo of the OP's set-up.

I like Feri's suggestion to concentrate a little more on set-up before you worry about the quality of the Audyssey calibration you are getting. And the location of your sub can have a big effect on...

FWIW, Audyssey just measures your in-room frequency response and reports it to the AVR, which sets Large, or Small/with a crossover, based on it's own internal programming. As far as I know, all AVR...

Hi,

Welcome to the thread! Audyssey simply reports the F3 point of your speakers to your Denon, which set your speakers to Large based on its own internal algorithm. That just gives you...

Hi,

I see that Josh responded, and that you said that your weaker sub might have really sucked, and I think that last point is an important one. It's certainly possible to push a weaker sub into...

You are right about XT having fewer filters for the .1 channel. XT-32 has 512 times as many. And that did mean that Audyssey XT had to spread out it's effects more for the subwoofers. Ironically, the...

It's a complicated subject. The only way that I can see how it would matter how you were splitting subs between Sub 1 and Sub 2 would be for ease of timing and level matching, if both of your 1200d's...

I think that the suggestion to go nearfield is a good one. Depending on where the sub actually sounds good, even positioning it where the small end table is located might work. With respect to...
