So my question.... will Audyssey MultEQ XT32 do a better job of integrating the sub using two channel content (redbook CD). (both SPL and in the time domain)....
I assume my sub is at least as fast as my older Mains.
The audessy site is god awful in explaining what they process.... I assume that a satellite to them is also your LR mains and that XT32 uses high resolution filters and then corrects the L R and low effect sub outputs accordingly. I assume that XT32 AVRs have a 2.1 channel mode that you can toggle on.
Am I on target here.?? Anyone have any experience with this?
More information would be helpful:
What receiver do you have?
What speakers do you have?
What sub do you have?
Do you have the ability to measure your response?
The general answer is that Audyssey XT32 does a good job of integrating the sub with the mains, especially if you're just using one sub. If you're using multiple subs, Audyssey can usually be improved on, but it requires the ability to measure your response. Also, the benefit of Audyssey increases if the user has done a good job of integrating the sub into the room prior to running Audyssey, with placement and listening position. That is also easier to accomplish with measurement equipment.
