Room is 13 wide by 18.5 in length and the wall where the mains, 1 sub, and tv is the only wall I can put them. I did look at the distance in Audyssey and it had the sub distance at 12.6 feet. I have 2 different sub outs but of course being fed the same signal. I have also received varying recommendations on adjusting the delays on the subs. One says at the distances we are talking about I don't need any delay while others say I need a small delay. I have played around with delay as well and my ears cannot tell a difference.
With a mic you would be able to see what adding delay is actually doing, if it is improving things or making it worse. If cannot move your subs or prefer not to this is what I would recommend, someone else might have another idea or plan.
I would start by
1. get the smoothest FR using the delay on the closest sub(both subs playing) with no Audyessy
2. then I would run Audyssey and then
3. run REW and look at the FR and if there are any dips/peaks then
4. do the post-Audyssey sub distance tweak in the AVR increasing the distance and taking measurements until you get the flattest FR around the sub mains xover.
So only 4 steps, but since you haven't done it before and learning REW can seem over whelming it will take a little bit to understand it and feel at ease. Ill will help you if you want or there are other threads on here that you can post in if you need help.
Download this as it will get you started setting things up when you get your mic https://www.dropbox.com/s/zdhq72a1pu...rsion.pdf?dl=1
That is Austin Jerrys Guide and he also has an REW thread on this form. https://www.avsforum.com/forum/91-aud...et-graphs.html
I would just start by reading the PDF, the thread is huge and you will get lost in it or I would
I would use it to ask questions or like I said I will help if you want it. I know I was over whelmed when I first started with REW and measuring but it is not that hard once you figure it out and I still have a lot to learn but I think I have the basics down, or I hope so
And finally, you said your room is "13 wide by 18.5 in length" and you have dual 1400s?
that has to be FUN
