Once this mess of a crisis is over I will be looking to upgrade to a processor with Dirac and with the possibility to use the Loudness compensation without EQ.
So you feel as if audessey cuts the subs too much? Just calibrate it to 75 db for all speakers and call it a day?

You will need to throw up some freq sweeps with Audyssey on/off otherwise you're just pissing in the wind - probably just null most likely in x-over region which is usually quick fix with messing with sub location or distance -

You are right and I will try to put my hand on a UMIK-1 soon. Not all bass related, but here are other improvements from disabling XT32:

- Sounds are more life like, more emotionnal
- Bigger soundstage, imaging seems to be more 3 dimensionnal versus more 2 dimensionnal with XT32 activated.
- Immersive tracks (Atmos or DTS-X) seems to be a lot more immersive and open up the soundstage. That could be due to disabling DEQ.
- Bass digs a lot deeper, didn't have much tactile response in the lows with XT32 activated. Now I do!

Before Audyssey XT32, I would run Audyssey just to get everything in line and then turn it off. It really opened up the sound stage, as you mentioned.

With XT32, I've found that playing around with it enough really gets me back into that realm of turning it off. I'm with you on DiracLive. Unfortunately, the product offerings with DiracLive are so few and expensive. I'm not sure if it's worth the price. I don't typically keep anything more than 2 years, so it's probably not worth it for me.

We watched Rise of Skywalker yesterday, and boy did the bass hit hard. This is an absolute reference disc from start to finish, for both picture and sound. This is one of the best examples of how well Dolby Atmos can utilize object placement - you could hear and feel that lightsabers cut through the sound stage! I watched this at reference volume and it was a thrilling experience.

I bet. I’ve been eyeing some of the GSG flat panel packs to build my own subwoofers. Maybe I need to do that and get on onboard with the BEQ experience.

It's the MiniDSP 2x4HD that makes BEQ work. Money well spent, and if you're going multiple subs, it's the only way to do it properly, IMHO.

Revisit of Need for Speed -don't even recall watching/owning this - age thing 😁

Anyhow this disc is just insane - audio off the charts good -
what a fun disc - soundtrack is just spectacular in the sound movement and creation of space -
nice weight in car sounds and slam in crashes etc - Upmixing blended in perfectly-
as bonus - the video was better than most 4k's I have -
cheese fest for sure but movies supposed to be fun

I bet @Tom Riddle , that is a nice space. I do not go that loud very often with my speakers, but I guess that could depend on the source as well.

Reference volume is actually not that perceivably loud in treated / well set up space-
Just sounds right – biggest benefit is that bass impact / tactile feel does not feel lacking and require
massive boosts and manipulation to give the visceral impact most desire –
The reason is simple - it takes getting db’s up to 110 ish and higher in the low end to get that feeling –
If you watch at -20/ -10 etc bass will never get to levels to feel proper- hench most boost their bass
to crazy levels in comparison to other levels without realizing the destruction in sound spectrum/balance –
A very simple experiment is play a scene that has tons of detail and lots of activity going on in surrounds etc-
listen without subs on and pay attention to everything – play again with sub level well above balance level - loss of detail / sound space is startling -

@Tom Riddle , when I watch a disc, around -15 to -12. when streaming I am around -5. When no one home I may take the disc up to -10. I did that with the rise of skywalker, and the bass pounded the room pretty darn good. I have had the volume near reference before, but it was really loud. Now the bass in the subs and in the BOSS like that.

Thanks @GPBURNS and tracking. I do not have any treatments so to say, but my PSA speakers and subs do very well. If I get up to -5MV, it is usually when I am home alone, so that I feel the difference.
Maybe some day when I grow up, I may get it figured out.

Is there a limit to the number of times you can trade up or is it a "one and done" kind of thing?

For instance, I just bought a PB-3000. If I wanted to trade up to a PB-4000 in 2021 and then up to a PB-16 in 2022, is this possible?

Sorry guys, last post was meant for the SVS thread, not this one. Although I guess it still applies since it's regarding subs.

Hello all, watched Underwater last night on Apple TV Digital VS. No Atmos, but 7 ch. As people have said dumb movie but the sound is massive. Low end does hit hard, and overall mix loud. I wanted to comment on how good the heights sounded using the simulated Dolby Atmos mode. Better than most Atmos movies.

I actually was just about to post a question regarding what db level is needed to achieve that tactile kick in the chest feeling haha. I've been enjoying my new F18 with BEQ but haven't gotten that chest punch at all.

Really depends on a lot of factors. What volume do you typically listen at? Is it located in a dedicated HT, a large or small room, enclosed or open? Where is the sub placed in the room? Did you run REW to check your frequency response?

Well tonight I watched Flight of the Phoenix at -10 and the experience was good but still not what I'd think I should be getting. It's a dedicated 12x16 room. The last time I ran REW, I was flat to almost 7hz. Since then, I've bumped the amp gain up one click and the LF adjust up three so I should have a nice house bump now.

Indeed so many variables - a lot of that pleasing punchy harmonics actually originates from your mains which is overlooked quite a bit -
Subs are there to seamlessly enhance your main speakers –
Thou saying all that most of us approach audio backwards – in reality we are actually trying to make our rooms
sound good – not make our equipment sound good –
