Goonstopher if your referring to the 2400 Passive Captivator Jonathan helped me to get the best response I could using the Dayton Omnimic V2 and the MIC2200 EQ. If not using Omnimic (MIC 2200 EQ disengaged) but engaging the HPF on the MIC2200 you can set for port tune (20Hz for my situation). Then see the cut and paste below from page 140 on this thread which details how I have plugged in cables to the back of my unit. Has worked for me perfectly with this arrangement and using the Dayton V2 Omnimic with MIC2200 EQ has gone a step further and allowed me to achieve the flattest resoponse for my situation. My trial and error with omnimic is also in this thread on the last couple of pages I think if you need to go down that path. Just remember that the EQ below was just a guess at this stage and pre omnimic tailoring. Hope this helps.
QUOTE PASTED FROM P140
"I have also had the MIC2200 engaged for a bit now and have had some success calibrating the Parametric EQ and feel I'm getting a cleaner sound than I was before. Its a shot in the dark without the right gear but for now I definitely prefer when the EQ is on (see below my settings, let me know if you guys notice anything out of the ordinary).
MIC GAIN/MIC/LINE: Off
LO CUT: On (18Hz or Port Tune)
FREQUENCY: 0.1 On (32Hz started at 45Hz but this is really a guess)
OCTAVE BANDWIDTH: On (1.8 started at around 1.6 also a guess)
LEVEL: On (+4 or+5dB I like the extra punch this gives)
OUTPUT: Set at Zero
REAR PANEL MIC2200 to EP4000
RCA to XLR (From AVR to MIC2200): Hooked up to Channel 1
1st TPS connector (From MIC2200 to EP4000): Hooked up from Output Channel 1 MIC2200 to Input 1 EP4000
2nd TPS connector (from MIC2200 to EP4000): Hooked up from Output Channel 2 MIC2200 to Input 2 EP4000
Archaea Im pretty sure this is correct (rear panel setup) but if you can see anything obvious that shouldn't be I'd appreciate any feedback. Haven't looked at display for MIC2200 whilst in running but enjoy the extra Bass coming through with the level knob slightly increased. I now feel there is a clearer bass signal and more impact after much A/B testing and am loving this bloody thing! I run my Yamaha at around -40dB (moderate listening) to -26dB (loud listening) and the CAP has been well matched as I said earlier to levels of all speakers. May change soon as Im considering adding a Rotel RMB 1075 which Im hoping will improve the detail/clarity of Mains/Centre/Rears when listening at louder volumes (but thats for another thread right......?)Edited by AJ72 - 5/13/13 at 8:22pm
