Hi there. I originally posted this in the same topic. But I moved her because it's more active and likely has more audience.
I had a few questions after watching all your videos. Specifically the order and process of doing things. I am more than willing to pay for your time to answer these questions if this is beyond what you'd answer in a forum post.
I have a room where the only place I can put subs are far right corner (where I have a mini-marty ported to 20Hz) and nearfield behind the couch. I have two cabinets sealed behind the couch with two 12" drivers each. The nearfields are wired together for a 4ohm load to one channel of my iNuke 6000 (actually NX6000D) and the marty is on the other channel. My Denon AVR can control both LFE channels independently.
Since I am completed limited to sub placement along the back wall, does the android RTA replacement for room crawl even matter? I guess I do wonder how import the position of the drivers are. The marty's baffle and port is currently facing directly into the back corner. I guess I could rotate it in any direction. Would facing out into the room be better? Would RTA tell me this? Same with the nearfields. I can put the baffle facing right into the couch (which is 18" from back wall) or turn them around facing the wall. I can move the two near fields about anywhere across the back wall. So either both behind the coach or one in the middle and one in back left corner.
Once I have this figured out I know I move on to gains for each sub channel. I understand how this works from your video and have no problem moving the subs into the middle of the room (in exact same position) to determine gain levels for each channel. But since I have 2 subs wired to the same iNuke channel, would I place them on top of each other for this measurement?
Once this is done, I move on to Rew. You state that Audessey should be turned off. Since I already ran it before, do I just wipe out all trim and distance measurements back to zero?
I also wasn't clear if Dynamic EQ should be turned on or off when running REW?
And then do I want to use the same EQ curve you use in your video where you're fairly flat from 20 – 33 Hz and then slowly drop down to 80Hz with about a 15db drop from 30 - 80? Or is this only if I don’t have Dynamic EQ, which I do.
Lastly, you state I can bypass the ASIO4ALL drivers by setting my crossovers as high as I can. I was confused as to which crossover? LFE? Or after setting speakers to small move all the 5 channels to as high as they go?
Thank you very much.
