One really nice feature of the MRX510 is quick measure. Really easy to use when trying to position your speakers and especially sub for flattest frequency response before applying ARC.

Any pictures of your room available to post? Just curious as to your set up. Do you have a dedicated treated HT? I am currently using dipoles too but never tried direct yet.

Thanks

Thanks for the suggestions guys but the main reason for wanting the S1 is the size. The ported cap and the S2 are just too big for my HT room.

Any other sub measuring tips would be...

Hi Jeremy,

What are the chances of you sending over a PS-18x to Data-Bass for testing? Would be very interesting to see its measurements. I posted in their forum and they indicated that they...

No unless you had to. Anthem ARC should do a good job of flattening the frequency of the sub however as you can see from the current posts it appears that ARC can be kind of fooled. So if you do...

You appear to have a very severe 15 db dip at around 70 hz. The dip is so bad that even Anthem ARC does not fully correct it. Any way for you to try different locations to flatten that out more? ...
