You would think at 6" it wouldn't matter but it did the room has an effect.
I just did it last night but I think I have it right. I hope so I have had enough tweaking for a while. I think I'd just like to sit back and watch a movie without analyzing what is going on.During testing I generally leave the lights on and it is interesting to see them dim on the big bass hits.
I don't feel there is anywhere to upgrade to either, I would have to reinforce the house if I was going to bring in any more bass.
Mental note stop reading forums.
hi, i set all the 4 subs as shown in the 1st pic in post #4 and let audyssey take care of the level on the 4...i know that there will be room gain effects and was hoping that the 4 will average out...the soundstage is phenominal, maybe it can be improved on
how about setting the gain of the individual sub using a sound pressure meter at my listening position? should have enough power in them to boost the null?
i have not gotten the lights to dim as my room is ~400sqft BUT i fear for my backwall...it flexes insync with the cone in some deep bass scenes!
for once in the last year of upgrading every few weeks - i can sit down and enjoy the system
few words to describe it...effortless, coherent, big(soundstage)...speakers are big too
, makes the tv look like a computer monitor
