Good choice, as I was reading I was going to reply and say you were overthinking it, but glad to see you're willing to open Pandora's box.

What is that famous quote? "It is better to have mic'd and not been able to create a perfect full spectrum sweep than to never have mic'd at all" =)

Haha yup I tend to over think things and Im scared for my free time now that I'll be diving into REW haha.

Definitely a learning experience and at some point you have to leave well enough alone, enjoy!

What is CSL ?
I have both the UMM-6 and the UMIK-1. There is no performance difference between the two, measured with REW. However, I find the UMIK-1 to be a slightly sturdier construction, so I would recommend it over the UMM-6. Both of my mics were purchased from Cross Spectrum Labs with custom calibration files.

4. Crank avr to 0db (or cleanest level before distortion)

5. Turn your subs pro-amp input gain up until the indicator flickers red then goes solid red. (Note this setting, don't ever change it)
6. Rerun your room correction in the avr to set your speaker/sub trims in the avr OR use a spl meter to set your speakers and sub trims in your AVR, using your avr's built in tones so that each speaker and your sub are playing 75db at your listening position.

Once that is done then go back and adjust the input to max adjust the output to right before clipping. Really just looking for a simple way to do this thanks in advance.
TBH, your method sound overly complicated, and I am not sure it achieves the objective. If you take a look at the MiniDSP guide linked in my sig, the first section describes the proper procedure for gain-matching the subs.

I have done something like this in the past to minimize the risk of input signal clipping. In my case I ran a 50Hz sine wave with the sub disconnected, using channel 4 in REW at -3dBFS with maximum main volume. Then adjust the input sensitivity knobs/settings to maximize signal without clipping - a scope would be better to see the onset of clipping, but the clip lights are probably good enough.

Adding all speaker channels does seem like a bit more work than is warranted, but the procedure should work. Why do you suggest that it would not work?

Okay thru trial and error I followed how to set the gain using the minidsp. With the sub trim at 0db the front panel attenuation knobs on the amps are less than half. After I got done tried it out not bad however I found this as well:


Regardless of the amp, I set the sub output on the receiver/processor to -6db to -8db and then adjust the gains in the amp to level set where I want.


Doing this helps prevent two different things when cranking music/movies:


1. Clipping the sub out on the receiver
2. Clipping the input on the MiniDSP
So which is more correct I really do not care as long as none of my equipment takes a nose dive I am fine.

I am close to order the miniDSP balanced w/ power adapter + UMIC-1.

I remember reading a post on this thread somewhere where someone had to pay the customs import duties. I think he was in the west coast, US and it was shipped via FedEx.

The order page says "small items - USPS" and "large items - FedEx". I heard FedEx charges those fees but not USPS. I would appreciate if anyone who has received the miniDSP can answer these questions

1. Has anyone else been hit by the customs fees?
2. Was it shipped via USPS or FedEx?
3. I want the miniDSP with power adapter and the UMIC-1. Will this be considered a large item?

I am in the east coast in Virginia.

Thanks!

I have ordered several MiniDSP products. I don't recall being billed for import duties for either of two 2x4's (unbalanced and balanced). However, for a DDRC-88A (a $1000 product), the carrier paid the import duty and sent me an invoice several days after the shipment. I ordered a UMIK-1 from Cross Spectrum Labs here in the US, and paid no import duty. I don't recall whether FedEx was involved in the 2x4 shipments.

Keep in mind that the import duties are quite low (5-6% IIRC), which for an inexpensive product like the 2x4 will be almost negligible.

Hi guys.

Mini DSP is all setup in my chain and soon as I set my delay for the rear subs to 7ms delay..............the bass has literally come alive!. HOLY FKN **** ITS AWESOME!! hahaha. For ages Audyssey Pro just never sounded right.....it looks like it could of been a delay/phase problem?. I ran a Audyssey Pro 3pt cal and it has definetly tightened everything up. Im almost there!!

Now my question today is....I bought my Mini dsp just a week ago....So ill assume it has the Rev 1.7 PCB?...so i can switch it from the 2v to 4v setting?......reason I am asking is because certain movies like The Incredible Hulk at reference with the subs 7db hot.....It feels like the bass volume drops...like its not as intense

Could this be the mini dsp clipping the signal?...both inputs 1 & 2 were almost at the -3/ -2 marks at one stage on the input channels in the plugin.

I have 4 Submersives and all of them are 2 clicks from the off position so they are at very low volume. My sub trims on my Integra 80.3 are -10.0 and -9.5. I dont have a Multi meter to check all of this as Im a n00b to all of this. Should I up the voltage on the mini dsp to 4v from the stock 2v position? *if I have the rev 1.7 board, how do i check this?*...to see if it makes a difference?.

Thanks again for all of your help...........if I fix this small issue this thing will literally be the best piece I have ever put in my system

Cheers,
Kevin

EDIT - Found this for my Integra DHC 80.3 - It's rated for 2v but the Maximum XLR Output is 11v...............Could this be as simple as changing the jumper to 4v?

Which miniDSP do you have? Is it the balanced 2x4 unit?

It's hard to say for sure without measuring the voltages, but I would not expect reference level playback with the sub trims at -10 and -9.5 to clip the balanced 2x4 miniDSP's input.

You can tell the PCB version by opening the case and looking at the board.

You can see if you are clipping by launching the 2x4 Plug-in and observing the signal output meters. If clipping, the indicator will be up in the red area.

@buddhamus : The adjustments will be an iterative process because you need to adjust the signal to noise all through the chain. Besides the jumper, as stated above you also have the input and output attenuation settings in the MiniDSP software, in addition to the AVR trim setting and your sub amp signal attenuation knob. Based on your post you probably want 4V jumper. To adjust the MiniDSP settings, mute the output or disconnect the subs and then send a high amplitude signal to the MiniDSP. You can use a 50-60Hz REW sine wave at -3dBFS at 0 MV on the AVR or whatever your max volume level is. Then attenuate the input attenuation in the MiniDSP if you observe clipping, until it goes away and you have a little headroom to apply whatever additional PEQ gain adjustments, so you avoid clipping on both the input and output. At that point you should be able to send a clean signal through the MiniDSP, but the signal level could be different than it was previously. So you might then need to iterate tweaking all of these settings a couple times and adjust the knob on the sub amp and/or the AVR trim. Hopefully that is clear.

Thank u so much for this!. I will give this a try tommorow. I will mute the subs.... Run that test tone through REW and observe the input and out levels on the plugin and adjust all the trims accordingly!

Do you have the balanced version or just the regular SE version ?

I have the SE version and ditched it, they clip way to easy. I just received my 2x4 balanced version yesterday.

I've had my balanced 2x4 since I think January and still haven't put it in the system.
Tried to download/install REW with no luck. Just have yet to try again to see what the problem is.

Just had to out-do me, huh??? lol
Does it count that I also have a pair of FTW-21's and an Fp10000q amp just sitting here collecting dust with the 2x4?!?!?
Might even have a pair of UXL's coming soon. Guess I better get busy.

Haha I know how it goes.
Almost done with my infinite baffle sub system, and all the various pieces that go with it.

I tried to download and didn't pay attention to what was going on. Think I just needed to download Java. Once I did that, the REW install wizard fired up and it installed.

I have the SE version and ditched it, they clip way to easy. I just received my 2x4 balanced version yesterday.
Yeah I got the balanced 2x4... Didn't bother with the rca version.

Do any of you guys own the balanced MiniDsp 2x4HD? Thinking of either picking up the regular balanced 2x4 or the 2x4HD.
