PsiPro: If you run YPAO, and then
go to manual mode to EQ it yourself, you UNDO what YPAO did in the first place, (like you never ran it at all).
- Set sub gain (level) to about 11 o'clock position (about 1/3)
- Set LFE to SUB ONLY (SWFR)... not sub + mains .
- Run YPAO in FLAT mode
- Afterward, adjust your XO if required (I raise mine since I have flat panel mains similar to satellite speakers)
- When it is done, raise the Center Channel trim volume.
Verify that you are satislfied with the sound. If not, some "other" options are:
Setting the "Dynamic Range Control" or whatever it is called. Your receiver will raise the volume of lower sounds, and lower the really loud ones, so that the overall "volume range" is lessened...(check the manual for this option & proper application)
***If you still find it 'unbalanced' where the voices are too low, you can lower your mains trim as well.... but you defeating the purpose in home theater experience by doing this, since the actions scenes are MEANT to be loud...so you should be cranking the volume knob to where the voices are good, and enjoy the punch of the loud scenes when they occur.
