Looking for some guidance...
1 year ago I installed a new home theater system included 2x FV18's... I've always had issues with the bass in this room, so I went with the dual FV18's to 'fix the bass issues'... initially, movies were awesome, but I was underwhelmed with the sound for music... I spent a lot of time learning how to use Audyssey and manually adjust the FV18's and made a lot of improvements, but still, I feel like there's room for a lot of improvement... so, after much research and daily reading here in the forums, I decided to learn how to use REW and purchased a MiniDSP 2x4 HD... I've been making notes and collecting links regarding using REW & MiniDSP to calibrate the subs & my system.
Unfortunately, we had a drain pipe leak into that room so I've had that room torn up since April
... I just got the room put back together last night, and am ready to calibrate the subs & system.
I've spent the last hour sorting through my notes and links and am having a hard time trying to figure out how best to go about doing this... I'd like to start by gain matching my subs, but really don't know where to start... the link I saved talked about moving each sub to the middle of the room and using the MIC to gain match them... I also have a note that says the subs can be gain matched in position, without moving them to the center of the room... but... how exactly do I do that? I'm now realizing that as a newb, I'm not sure how to do the simple things that I should already know...
Enrico has a great document in his signature that covers most of the basics... but, with regards to Gain Matching the subs, the link he includes isn't helping me... or I'm not finding the right posts... Does anyone have a link to a document or post that steps through the process (in beginner terms) of how to gain-match subs?
Thanks in advance for your help!!!
