YPAO

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Quick question:
What should the volume on my Yamaha be set on when setting up YPAO?
Thanks

It doesn't matter.

Thanks mate.

Ok, so for YPAO I have "extra speaker assignment" set at none (choices are: zone 2, precence, and none), EQ Type set at front (choices are: flat, front, and natural). Is this correct? I'm only running 2.1 system right now. Want to make sure before I start the test.

Sounds right to me

Might try setting eq to flat.

Ran YPAO but measurements (distance) aren't exactly accurate. Would getting a tape-measure out and manually applying the correct distances have that much of an effect on the sound or should I leave the YPAO Distances?

The distances set by YPAO are for room/delay correction so that all sounds arrive at the listening position at the same time.
They aren't meant to be the actual distances. The sub setting, in particular, will look "way off" but should be left alone

Ok. I'll just leave it be. Thanks.

I'm glad I read this post. I was getting a reported distance of 15 ft for my SW when the tape measured showed 9 ft. Could you comment on how accurate YPAO is at determining the SW crossover (mine gets set to 80Hz) and the whole PEQ equalizer thing?

The crossover setting will depend on your mains. My fronts are pretty good down to about 40hz, so I've found that a 60hz crossover setting sounds better to me.

I had the same speakers, (NS-AP2600), but I somewhat upgraded to NS-C210 Center and NS-B210 Mains (Yamaha) and kept two of the NS-AP2600 Speakers for surrounds. YPAO set mine at 80Hz also as well as my new center and mains. I think they sound better at 80Hz, IMO.

With those speakers, I'd try something higher than 80hz and see how it sounds. I would think 100hz, or 120 hz would be more appropriate.
