I haven't gotten to mess with it as much as I would like. I set the gain to just a tad over 50% and ran MCACC. I just played a couple of movie scenes that I am fairly familiar with because I just had about 15 minutes. I did the light bike scene from Tron Legacy and I did a scene or two from Jedi. I wanted to do WOW but I just have that on VUDU and it would not play for some reason. Very impressed! I have the room size set all the way to large in a 16.5 x 34 x 9 room and it fills the room no problem. Next step for me will be setting up the minidsp...which hopefully I can figure out. Might add a couple more bass traps as well soon. I will say I almost went with a pb 12 plus or an ultra and made the decision to give the v1500 a shot. I am glad I did and it saved some $. For now I no longer have the desire for 2.... for now.

When you ship just under $500,000 worth of FedEx shipments it all adds up quick.
I believe the weight limit for "Home" service is 70 pounds. Ground is 150.

When I input the fedex info it will default to either GROUND or HOME and there are no options to change that. Smaller boxes (miniDSP, Mugs, replacement amp) usually default to HOME IIRC. I don't recall seeing ANY subwoofer default to HOME.

I have heard of the Ground service delivering on Saturdays before but that seems to be very unusual and limited to small regions.

Tom, where should the gain be set on the ICE amps initially for audyssey?

I believe the Audyssey guideline is to start with a setting that will net 75 dB SPL. That'll vary based on your room.

Try to get the final Audyssey bass level setting to be in the -06 to 00 range. This gives you plenty of room to bump up the bass levels without approaching the menu extremes.

Also, be sure to over ride your AVR if it sets any speakers to large or uses something lower than 80hz for the speakers. 80-100hz on all speakers works really well 99% of the time.

I always have to remember to change mine. It crosses my Theos over at 40hz which is just silly.

Nice--congrats!

Best story for me yesterday. We were driving to go out to dinner when my wife asked me if I wanted her to text me as soon as FedEx comes so I can head home early from work since I'm traveling tonight. I said yes--but at the same time, my 4 year old son in the back seat yells, "No, I'm gonna text Dad from my phone!" We chuckled to each other and said, "Ok, buddy" and he then quietly asks, "Mommy, can I borrow your phone?"

Waiting for mine to come in and excited--but, I wouldn't trade moments like that for all the audio equipment in the world.

LOL… This should last about two weeks. Upgraditis is a serious condition around here. Enjoy the new sub and congratulations.

Gotta be the V1500. The S3000/S3000i won't begin shipping for another day or two. Also, look out for a cool news update on the 3000 series later today..
