^^ what about the center? If you don't need to upgrade now, save more money and do it right once. RF82 is aight.

Thanks. It was a journey to find veneer. Thanks for the kind comments. They sound as good as they look.

What does this tool do?

Basically the Subtuner tells you the recommended crossover point and the phase you should set in the subwoofer based on the distance that your subwoofer is from listening position related to your front speakers. Here is how it looks and the results you get after running it:

I'm guessing you are using a Mac because I had the same problem. So to enable Java on Firefox or Safari do this:

You need to change the settings in your Java Control Panel:

1) click the apple logo in the top left hand corner of the computer screen, then click system preferences
2) Find and double click on the Java logo. The Java Control Panel should open. If it doesn't, click "Reopen the Java Control Panel"
3) In the Java Control Panel, click the "Security" tab.
4) Set the "Security Level" to "Medium"
5) Click Okay again and try to access your streaming quote applet.

Doing this every time you open a Java applet it will ask you if you want to run it.

Yes, even 1 port mode FV15HP has more output than F15HP in sealed mode. The 14hz high damping in 1port mode is the closest that FV15HP can come to a sealed sub like F15HP.

I think I was already doing this using REW... I measured the phase of the mains and sub independently and then adjusted the AVR sub distance until the phase at the crossover point was identical for both mains and sub.

Thanks - that was the info I needed.

I'm happy with FV15HP sound quality in 1port/14hz/high mode. I'm working on a 65Hz null with sub placement and room treatments first. I might go with a second sub if I can't get this worked out.

Another question for the Rythmik experts:

I'm having trouble getting the sub integrated for both 2-chan and HT LFE. My Marantz AVR only has one trim for the sub level and it affects both LFE and L+R low pass mix when I'm using the AVR bass management.

I've got 2-channel stereo integrated and it sounds great! However, my LFE is too low during movies. If I crank up the sub gain or AVR sub trim it screws up the 2-chan curve. My only AVR LFE-specific option is (0db, -10db, or OFF). I imagine better processors would be more flexible? Is there something I'm missing?

Anyway I bought the XLR3 version of the sub and I'm thinking about using dual inputs. In the AVR I would set mains+center to LARGE so AVR sub out is LFE only. I'd then run L+R to the sub as well as a third LFE cable. I'd use the sub's PEQ and phase control to integrate 2-chan. Then I could use the AVR sub level trim to get the correct LFE level without affecting 2-chan.

Downsides I see of this setup are 1) the mains are forced to struggle with low frequencies, 2) center low freq is dropped unless I run without a center altogether 3) is "boosting" LFE in the AVR harmful? 4) I could phase align the sub but could never time align it because there would always be the latency of (sub's DSP + sub's phase delay) which isn't in the L+R path. I'm no audio expert so maybe this isn't a big deal.

But on the plus side it looks like using dual mode would enable me to hold off on a processor purchase and get correct levels in 2-chan and HT LFE.

Thoughts?

What kind of integrated amp you have?

Most Marantz AVR units have pre-outs for the front left and right channels. You can connect them to the L+R of the integrated amp which are connected to your speakers. This way you can enable the common bass management features of the Marantz AVR (model number?). When playing tunes, select stereo and the Marantz AVR will send the right signals to integrated amp via the pre-outs and the bass to the sub. You can then adjust the bass on the Marantz AVR to taste.

The LFE of the Marantz AVR is connected to the Rythmik sub.

Marantz SR-7009, Oppo BPD-93, MTV 7000D, aTV, Harmony Home Control remote, KEF E301+T101, MiniDSP (2x4)+(10x10HD)+(DDRC-88A), Emotiva 2xXPA-5 (Gen2), Rythmik 2xF12G+2xF8, HiMedia Q16, LG 55EC9300.

You just mentioned two things 1) AVR sends L+R bass to the sub and 2) AVR sends LFE to the sub.

My issue is that my AVR (Marantz SR8001) does not allow me to adjust those two functions independently. All I have is a single sub level control. When music is smoothly integrated and tight the LFE is weak. When LFE hits hard music then sounds like a bad car stereo install.

In other news I think I need another FV15HP... music is fine but LFE can't pressurize open floorplan 3500 cuft like I would like. At least not when set up for 1port/14hz/high. I haven't tried optimizing for SPL but I don't want to give up tight bass mode.

Hi jon,

I kind of mis-understood your setup, sorry about that. So you've only got the Marantz SR8001 and these are connected to your speakers + sub - nothing else, correct?

Starting on page 27 of the Marantz SR8001 owner's manual, there is a flowchart for the Audyssey MultiEQ calibration. Run the AUTO setup to get your levels and distances correct for all your speakers + sub using all 6 positions.

What does the receiver report when you look at the check result?

Marantz SR-7009, Oppo BPD-93, MTV 7000D, aTV, Harmony Home Control remote, KEF E301+T101, MiniDSP (2x4)+(10x10HD)+(DDRC-88A), Emotiva 2xXPA-5 (Gen2), Rythmik 2xF12G+2xF8, HiMedia Q16, LG 55EC9300.

I've only managed to get great results in large or open spaces with a single near-field sub or multiple subs.

I have the same problem with my Marantz SR8500. I ended upcaring more about 2 channel and ran my mains full range with the sub gettingthe same full range and using the sub X-over at 35hz. LFE is still connectedand is set at +9db's but with the sub set at 35hz I'm missing (I think) 120Hzto 35Hz in the LFE. I do have my bass set to BOTH so I believe the LFE isplayed in the Main and LFE. This does not really help you since I'm not evenusing a Rythmik sub but you need to pick what is more important to you. Musicor movies.

The beauty of the Rythmik dual-input sub amp is that you can feed L+R full range into one input and apply the sub crossover to that. There is a second LFE input that does not get filtered by the crossover, so in your setup you would still get 35-120Hz
LFE.

Anyway, I talked to Rythmik and they brought up another option - a 2-chan preamp with HT pass-through of mains+sub. So when the stereo preamp is off the AVR appears to have full control and can set levels appropriate for HT. When the preamp is on it takes over mains+sub and settings are optimized for stereo. Obviously you can't use the receiver's power amps for L+R in this case.

I'll trade that off vs just spending money on a different processor. A quick glance at the Emotiva UMC-200 shows they have sub level trim plus separate LFE trims for each input format type.

Just curious... I haven't kept up with AVRs... was there something about the SR8001 that was good (DAC or analog section maybe)?

Marantz just dropped the top model SR8xxx and SR9xxx models because people do not spend big $$$ on AVR's that they want you to replace every year or two.

Power supply and Copper plating is really the only thing specail about the old flagships.

I wish my Paradigm Servo 15 did this.

Balanced XLR? What is that? Does that mean I hook one sub to the other and I don't have to worry about level matching ?

Phase control is done in the AVR when measuring the distance from sub to seat.. Right? No need to do anything on the subs phase control? I've lost the bass to the chest feel and trying to see if I can get it back with trying other locations, might have to buy another sub or if Rythmik releases the new more powerful amp

Yes, the AVR should adjust the delay for you.

So I got the bass MUCH better, at first I had it near side but there was a big dip in the mid bass so I put it up front against the wall thinking the wall is the best spot, it was lacking and starts to roll off at 50, I put it on the other side where it's not against the wall and now have it pretty flat to nearly a 100 and much improved.

If your heart is set on small speakers i think the Ascend will be hard to beat. However, if you can accommodate a larger speaker, I would take a hard look at the high efficiency speakers being made by both PSA and Reaction Audio. Likely much better quality components than most Klipsch at a fraction of the cost since you are cutting out all retail markup.
