That's a nice setup. Now you need to upgrade the sub biggrin.gif


But, eh, aren't you afraid the little person in the one picture will be poking tweeters and drivers with the grills off? I know my son would have (lol).

Sub recommendations ?? It's a vx-11!!! What should I look for ??
post #9 of 28
I used to have the VX-10, which I understand is very similar.

Get a 12" sub from Internet sub manufacturers SVS Sound, HSU Research, Outlaw Audio, or Rythmik. They all make amazing subs that are far better than what you can buy at the stores, sometimes even for twice the price. Any of their 12" subs would be just as big (if not more) an upgrade as your V5.2s are over your Klipsch for movie watching.

I've written that list so many times now (well, except Epik used to be on it) that I forget about the new "old" kid on the block. Yeah. Add Power Sound Audio to that list. biggrin.gif

Very nice stands.

I'm surprised no one mentioned this but I would really recommend you re-arrange the front 3 speakers.....a lot.
Diffraction is the 1st thing that comes to mind when I look at your setup.

Try to position the center at least even with the edge of the stand and see if you can move the fronts apart more and further up.

Ideally, you want to form an arc with the 2 fronts spread apart as far as you are away from them. Do what you can.

I think there will be a big improvement in sound after you're finished.

Move the speakers forward so they're even with the edge of your entertainment center. That would make a big improvement. If you cant get them wider apart at least this move will help.

I'd love to hear your setup. I have V5.1s in a 2.1 setup, and Veritas VS Surrounds in my HT setup (Energy RCs for the front sound stage). As good as they sound, I've wanted to hear those V5.2s.

Ran ypao and this is the levels it gave me !! Will move the sub up for sure to around -1 or 0 but the speaker levels don't seem right at all!! I keep having to change the l/r back to small as it tries to set them to large even though they are the same speakers !!
post #23 of 28
Most room correction software sets speakers to large if it thinks they can be run OK without a sub, and then you have to override it.

You should turn the gain (volume) down on the back of the sub and rerun YPAO. That -10 means YPAO thinks you have it turned up much more than you need to. It's setting the speakers as positive numbers to try to help offset that balance. So adjust it down and try again.

Set the sub at 15% gain!! Have the speakers set to small .... sub is on +1.0 and center is +2.0 with right front at +0.5 and left front at +1.5 as I sit more right of center so now I have a field of sound ( within reason as they are close together ) and the crossover is on 80 hz on the avr ! Sub is wide open on crossover using the avr to do it smile.gif

Basically had to override a lot of ypao but always have had to smile.gif
