I'm not Jerry, but no, that doesn't suggest that the delays and trims aren't active. It just indicates that your slot 1 calibration is about 5db down. In order to test delays, you'd have to follow...

In my experience, it doesn't matter.

My surround speakers a less efficient than my front sound-stage, and they are also powered by a less powerful amp. So, in general they are slightly less loud...

You want your Sub1 to run full range, but you want your Sub2 to only work on frequencies 30hz and up?

I think what you are saying is that you don't know how to manually enter a high-pass filter in...

I'm not sure what you are trying to do, exactly, but it sounds like exactly what the 2x4 is good at.

It probably doesn't matter...someone who has already done this will probably chime in...but you don't want to put your subs on multiple 88a channels, despite having some extras.

Yes, they are still for sale. To be completely honest, I am enjoying them (especially the center which is amazing for vocal clarity), but my Aperion's are still standing in the room, looking sad. ...

No, they aren't good for the readings. Aside from the first measurement point, which must be exactly where you are currently placing it, treat all of the remaining locations as mere suggestions. ...

Yes, it sounds like you have done the same thing that I have done.

Processor->88a->2x4->Subs

The fact that the 2x4 only lets us add about 7ms (feet) worth of delay is disappointing. But, it...

I bumped into this as well. I found that switching REW back to the java drivers, and then flipping back to ASIO seems to fix it. A bunch faster than rebooting!

I experimented for a very long time and found that the 2x4 before the 88a added absolutely nothing (aside from wires). In other words, I was able to get a flat measured response just as easily with...

I moved my buttkickers to be after the DIRAC 88a, mostly because the miniDSP 2x4 couldn't add enough delay to compensate for the 88a's inherent 16ms (approx) delay. I was a bit worried that having...

Okay, I started with 40 Hz, and something like 48db/oct (the 2x4's default). I also noticed that I can't add as much delay as I'd like with the 2x4. That's a bit depressing, and I may be forced to...

EBay! Great deal on a lightly used pair.

Thanks for the pointers. Any specific reason the TTs need more delay? I'm used to dealing with delay since my Dirac 88a adds about 16ms or so delay by...

Ah, it's good to know that the buttkicker amp only goes to 40hz. I was certainly planning on crossing over lower than than, so I'm glad I didn't go with their amp.

Crossover suggestions for Buttkicker LFEs?

Can anyone give me some...
