If you are using some sort of auto-setup/EQ such as Audyssey, YPAO, ARC etc, then it will set the distances appropriately and you will never hear a problem.

Thanks Jerry. Yes, being able to see the settings Dirac has made would indeed be useful. But be ready for a thousand questions if I make the switcheroo :)



I will indeed. Still trying to...

OK. no worries. Just trying to explain one of the reasons you’re not getting much help here. If I were you, I'd disable everything possible and then measure a 'vanilla' measurement from MLP and some...

The green trace may have Audyssey off but that doesn't mean everything which can affect the response is off. Eg you could have Dolby Volume engaged. Not saying you did but your measurements are...

You need to measure with Audyssey switched off and anything else that can influence the result also defeated. This will give you the 'vanilla' response in the room. Then turn Audyssey on and measure...

Very good point Mike. I thought he was measuring. If not, then I agree with you - how does he know he has a peak at 40Hz and what level it is?

No - I am saying that is the one I use with Dirac Live. Audyssey requires you use the mic that comes with your AVR (or the one that comes with the Pro Kit for those who have it).

Damn :) Well if you can't move the sub and you can’t move the MLP, and you can't EQ the sub... I think it's safe to say you have a problem :)

You could perhaps pick up a cheap secondhand PEQ unit...

If you can apply independent EQ to the sub before running Audyssey, then do so. The better the start you give Audyssey the better the result will be. You are probably correct in your assumption about...

Yes. There's a specific section in the FAQ on extension cables if you want to know more - it addresses the issue Gary raises above (HF roll-off).

They look like they are probably pretty low-cost mics. What would we guess at - a couple of dollars each in China? So it's probably unreasonable to have very high expectations of them. I used to keep...

They were probably telling you what Dolby recommends if you have speakers with 90° dispersion. But Dolby also says to aim them if they do not have 90° dispersion. Both are right, depending on the...

If they have a 90° style all-round dispersion, they can be pointed directly down. That is what Dolby say. OTOH, if they do not have that kind of dispersion pattern, then they can be aimed. That is...

My view FWIW is that it is a fundamental flaw in the design of the Audyssey Target Curve. Audyssey's aim is to deliver a 'flat' (more or less) frequency response after calibration. However, all of...
