this would give you the proper setting.
When you say add 9, do you do it on the AVR or do you turn your gain/volume knob on the sub and measure w/ a SPL meter?
Reason I ask is because the way I was thinking of calibrating my 2 subs this weekend was going to be as follows:
1. First step of Audyssey is to set gain knob on sub until screen reads 75 db. Ed at SVS told me to do this individually and set each sub to 75 individually w/ the other one off.
2. Run Audyssey w/ both subs on.
3. After running Audyssey, pull out the SPL meter and run test tones and make any adjustments in the AVR to bring both subs together to the desired level.
But, I think I read in one of the many posts that once you run Audyssey, you shouldn't make big adjustments in the AVR, you're making adjustments to the Audyssey settings, you should make the adjustments on the gain/volume on your subs. Is this correct?
Another question, in step one I am doing setting the volume on each sub to 75db. Then when I turn both on, wouldn't that be WAY to much bass, so shouldn't I want to lower the gains after running audyssey otherwise it'd be WAY to much output w/ both set to 75?
