Also, be aware that you cannot control this with treatments - it is too low in frequency and would need treatments several feet thick. So you can buy some more subs and try to control the room with that, and/or you can experiment with room placement of the subs to see if you can minimise those modal interactions that way. Or you can say "if I can't bloody well hear the problem, I can just ignore it". Depends on how developed your OCD is
I doubt if you're 'done' yet
I think you can only achieve 'done' status when you have wasted an entire weekend, as Jerry and I have recently
And even then, it is questionable how long 'done' lasts in the real world. I suspect it lasts 'until the next time'.
BTW, although I am sounding like some kind of expert in this post, it is all an illusion, so I wouldn’t take much notice of what I say unless it is corroborated by a genuinely credible source, such as Sanjay. What we need is for someone who is a real expert to start a thread.... oh... er... right...
Hey, there are people that think I'm some sort of expert on the Mythos ST with Audyssey, so I know where you're coming from
. Being an articulate voice of one (or two) will get you pseudo-guru status, at least until Feri dispels your illusion
After reading all the follies you've engaged yourself in, I have a hard time imagining I'm "done" with the room or my speaker/MLP configuration room either.
But what you're saying is my naive interpretation too...if the noise floor measurement is accurate, unless I want to go chasing < 20 Hz issues and get ridiculously thick (and not acceptable to WAF LOL) treatments, and I can't go the Jerry route of moving subs to odd side wall places of my room due to the logistics (i.e. moving a piano and putting cable under carpets), that's it for the moment except for "minor" tweaks to my crossover splice, or some hammering of some peaks with the Curve Editor. Although I suppose I can move onto ETC and do string tests
OTOH, look on the bright side. I'll eventually add front heights, and it's very likely we'll have to move the MLP closer to the center of the room to fit the crib (the joys of condo living)*, and at any rate, within a year or so we're moving to a bigger place. Then the fun starts all over again!
* I've been bugging my wife to get rid of the glass living room table and allow me to move the sofa/MLP into the center of the room for a while (and concurrently improve the viewing distance to 55" VT50 as well optimize surrounds better), so the new baby is an excuse/catalyst. However, then I might be facing more room nulls as I move away from near-field sub placement. I suppose I can do a pre-Audyssey L/R+sub and Center/sub run in the "proposed" MLP to see if it creates a whole new set of issues. Alternate crib placement is on the side of the living room, but that's less than optimal unless we add thermal windows to the living room. Good thing we have about six months to worry about this...
** Jason's been MIA for five weeks by my count.....I think we've been orphaned....fortunately we're 'learning by example', in large part due to you & Jerry, with some chiming in from the likes of Sanjay and at least one "devil's advocate"...you know whom you are.....Edited by sdrucker - 3/4/13 at 12:20pm
