Should Audyssey values go up when turning sub gain down?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I have dual 15" sub's in my home theater and thought they sounded a little over the top on heavy bass scenes. I checked where Audyssey set them last and the value was -1.5. That's well within acceptable range.

I then turned the subs' gains down a notch and ran Audyssey again and this time I got -12. mind you, I turned them down and not up. I had to turn the sub's down to almost 0 to get a reading of -3 again when it had set the sub put to -1.5 at about 9 o'clock before.

Anyone have any ideas why this would happen? I moved nothing in the room but a couple pillows on a couch.

It's the AVR/pre-pro that actually sets the sub trim so could have been a glitch with the AVR/pre-pro. With dual subs in your setup, gain settings closer to 0 would be expected.

Yeah, I was thinking about that. I would run one at about 8:45 so two would run lower but my version of Audyssey will only eq one sub as the other is connected with a Y connector.

When running the subs at the trim set and even 3dbs hot, I got no reaction from the sub's when I played one of the depth charge scenes in the movie u-571. This was pretty disturbing. I know the 15H's drivers don't move a lot but when I placed my hands up against the drivers, I felt nothing.

I would try running it 3 times without changing anything to see how accurate the results are. If they are all over the place then you will know for sure something is wrong. The results may give you a clue as to what to do next. Note phase and crossover settings also.
