That GF is a keeper!!! :)
^Chris K. has reiterated endlessly that as long as the sub trim is not maxed, it is just fine. And I can't think of any advantage to having your sub 1 and sub 2 trims more closely matched. Although one downside I experienced with a very neg trim was my Velo subs wouldn't wake up from standby.
IME you have to override the recommended settings for your subs' vol controls in the sub volume measurement step in order to avoid significantly negative sub ch trims in the AVR. It's as though Audyssey doesn't expect that playing two subs at equal volume might just be louder than either one alone. The next calibration you could adjust the Velo vol controls down a bit.
But then again, by then you may have read Keith's sig and decided to add a few more subs.
I’d gain match them personally (which it seems you are anyway). If they still come in at -5 and -11, I'd then split the difference to -8dB all round and consider it a done deal.
He has - but he's wrong ;)
Or, to put it a better way, he's only thinking in terms of Audyssey, as he usually does. In those terms, he is right. Thinking more holistically, he's wrong.
It's in the FAQ:
Keith, you've lost me here. Like the OP, I'm unclear as to what is wrong with my post or my citing Chris' advice in this instance, wholistically or otherwise. What is it in that FAQ answer that indicates how my post (and my quoting Chris) is wrong in this instance?
More importantly, is there something you'd have the OP do differently irt his sub set up?
Is the OP not driving the dual Velo sub amps to "full potential" because of a trim of -11? Hmmm...unlikely that is something to worry about in the OP's setup, but yours is an interesting point.
And now that you mention it, there's a post on the Velodyne thread in which their CS stated that a good general guideline is to adjust the sub volumes so Autosetup results in the sub ch trim between +5 and -5. http://www.avsforum.com/t/304306/offical-velodyne-support-thread/8970#post_23283883
