I need to move my seating forward because I am half way in the middle which seems to be the worst place to sit. I also need to get some longer speaker cables so that I can move the speakers around a little bit. I am getting into using the REW java program on my iMac to get some data. Too busy with family right now. Hard to find time to even watch anything much less tinker around.
That's great, Bob Moran is a real nice guy to deal with. XT32 is nothing short of miraculus, it's so much bette than XT that I won't use an AVR/Processor without it in our main media room. The filter resolutions are so much higher in both the subs and mains (regardless if you are using 1 or multiple subs). Hopefully NAD will be on board with it soon, it really is that good. Here are the comparisons from Audyssey's site:
Keep in mind that 'X' is like 20 filters (don't know the exact number), but Chris from Audyssey stated in the past that XT32 has 10,000 filters in both the subwooer and satellites each. It creates an incredible 'sound bubble' in your room.
I highly recommend you move your seating position out of the middle area. We have a small dedicated room and that was an issue also. I had to move seating closer to the back wall to be out of the middle - it's the absolute worse place for bass. And if you are EQing for the bass in the middle area, all other areas will have boomy, uncontrolled bass. Try it out, it makes a big difference.REW is great by the way, it'll give you very good objective measurements to show what's happening in your room with placement of seating, speaker mains, and your subwoofer. The Dayton OMNI Mic kit is also pretty good (less of a learning curve for quick measurements, but REW is much more robust). I have both of them - there are threads here on AVS for both that are great if you want to learn more.
I very much understand the time issue. We have a 6yo son that keeps us very busy. With work and family, it can be hard to find time for ourselves.
Thanks again for your help.
