I may have to contact him After many posts recently and a few months ago, I still have questions on how & where adding BEQ works. Call me confused...

When Audioguy was working with me on my setup, I installed my sub PEQ's 1st and I ran Optimizer afterwards.

Were you optimizing the anechoic FR of your (passive) sub acc. to manufacturer's spec, or were you manually (pre-)adjusting the FR based on initial room response measurements. Both applications are typically carried out BEFORE running the Optimizer. BEQ is about adjusting/correcting the soundtrack (A-chain) and takes place AFTER running the Optimizer.

Hi Guys,


My calibrator just finish top middle speakers today, tomorrow he will finish front and rear tomorrow.


I use power amp with different gain than LCR + surrounds. The sound from top middle speakers seems weak to me.


What is the gain for top speakers compare to others if I check via pink noise? is it -6DB?




Thanks

I just tried my first BEQ experiment (using the Trinnov). I created and saved a new Preset that included the PEQs for Alita. And could easily switch back and forth. In every scene I selected (initial Motor Ball scene and a couple of fight scenes), the non BEQ'd version had a more robust bottom end (in those rare situations where I could hear any difference). I have double checked my settings. Is there some specific scene I could use to get a better feel for the advantage of this process - or another movie?

No actually + LCR and all surround double check.


Do all level need to be the same db except C channel?

On my system (I have done probably 100+ calibrations; most for testing of software/experimenting). The calibration process always set levels correctly; given that Optimizer's level alignment is enabled.

If levels are not 100% aligned pre calibration; don't worry - it will be handled (please note PEQ is not calibration)

Yes x3 means enter 3 of them so the total tells you what the total gain is for 3 filters

Alita has an excellent sound track. Perhaps try the same with one of the disney crippled sound tracks such as avengers infinity war.

I currently have an anthem and have been interested in moving to an altitude 16. I don't care about more than 7.x.4.

Some reasons that altitude is interesting to me are:
- Anthem has 1 sub output. I'd like ability to control crossovers separately for my shakers vs my subs. I think altitude will allow this, can anyone confirm?
- Anthem doesn't have that "double bass" feature that some AVR's have. I would use it (again for my shakers) mainly for my games preset. In other words, I'd have my fronts crossed over at say 60hz. The subs at 60hz. But then the shakers, which are sub #2 to the trinnov would be crossed over at 100hz and receiver all sounds from 0-100hz. Possible?
- One of my main features I use on anthem is virtual inputs. I read the trinnov manual and think it works the same. Basically, I can create an input, assign this input a physical HDMI in lets say HDMI1, then on that input I can tell it what to do with 2 channel (leave it or upscale it), I can set which speakers are enabled or disabled, I can set which crossover points are used etc. Then I can create another input and also assign HDMI1 to it. Physically it's the same, but I can reconfigure all the above.
- Ideally, I'd have an input for "PC Movies". This would have 7.2.4 enabled, movie crossovers, and upscale all my audio to atmos.
- Then "PC Music". This would output in say all channel stereo. I'd enable my front left/right, my rear left/right but at -6db, disable my surrounds and ceiling speakers. Enable center at -6db, enable subs crossed over at 40hz but sub #2 crossed over at 100hz. Is something like this possible?

Looking at the manual, it appeared to me that all this was possible. It also looked like the IP control allowed for basically full control of picking presets, volume settings etc.

Question Beq

Anyone thought about and/or used the 3rd octave (31 band) graphic equalizer on the Altitude's INPUT screen for BEQ purposes. This would IMO be the most appropriate - and easiest? - way to adjust/correct soundtracks with squeezed bass responses. Is it absolutely essential to have the added precision of a parametric equalizer (PEQ) to get a good result?

Edit: I have re-posted this question on the BEQ thread, and got a first response indicating that this might very well be a feasible route. Making changes at the very beginning of the chain (INPUT into the processor, AKA the end-product of the A-chain) would certainly makes things conceptually easier to comprehend and explain. However, I do not know whether this also would be a more practical way in terms of storing and replacing filters between movies (I haven't yet worked with BEQ on the Altitude).

A good idea and understanding lies at the base of every successful project.

That's an easy one - yes to them all ! :-)

FYI over the years I've had AV processors from Meridian, Classe, Lexicon, Cary and Bryston, and the Trinnov units have greater capability and flexibility than them all... and arguably better sound, but that is debatable point as it depends on many factors.

I imagine doing this would be a PITA using the GEQ to be honest Maikel. Part of the benefit of the BEQ thread, is someone has already done the work, measured the movie soundtrack file, and calculated the filters. So in the Altitude, you just plug them in and click save - it takes a couple of minutes to do at the start of a movie.

You would have to find a way to manually convert those PEQ filters and shelf filters into 3rd octave adjustments that achieve the same net result. Take the Spiderman example posted a page or two ago, that has four low shelf filters at two different frequencies, one gain PEQ filter (with quite a wide band low Q) and one cut PEQ filter. I have no idea how one would go about translating all those adjustments and their cumulative effects into absolute 3rd octave adjustments.

Perhaps there is some automated software out there that can do it? I don't know if you could plug them into the EQ section of REW and see how much each frequency has changed on average, reading off the graph, and use that - but its a lot of effort for essentially an identical end result.

Hi all I’ve now read the manual a few times and have played around with a few settings, including bass management.
Very happy with the sound. May look into the BEQ settings. I notice the Harry Potter blu Ray soundtracks also seem particularly bad (quiet and compressed?).
So far DTS tracks sound better and I have noticed are higher data rate. DTS neural processing is currently my default where possible.
Is there any benefit from changing from slave setting and increasing the clock speed to 96khz? Is this the same as “upsampling”, or will stuff not play properly?
Thanks

No I didn't say this is feasible, I just said how to use beqd to work out how close you could get. I don't expect it to actually work v well and I think I gave an example of this at some point somewhere in that thread (the peaks from the geq will not create a smooth curve)

Avengers Infinity War is indeed, crippled. It is a shame that my favorite marvel movie fails so hard when it comes to the audio department.

To sum up the advantages/disadvantages for using the INPUT graphic EQ for BEQ:

- Easier to understand or explain the concept YES
- Easier to implement NO
- Accurate NO

Conclusion: Forget it.

PS The ability to use PEQ filters on the inputs, including exporting and importing of soundtrack specific sets of filters for those inputs, may be somewhere way down Trinnov's to-do list.

A good idea and understanding lies at the base of every successful project.

That's interesting because I've found the opposite, and much prefer Atmos - eg. Alita Battle Angel, The Martian, Mission Impossible Fallout, Ready Player One...

What DTS films have you demo'd and I'll given them a go.

Question Phantom Center and best speaker placement in a constrained setup ...

Hello guys,
for various reasons I had to sell my old theater as I had to move to a much smaller place.
The new media room is also my studio and due to its size (only one arm chair to watch movies) I can't accommodate many speakers so basically my current setup is composed by:
LR : Harbeth 40.2 40th anniversary (I can't give them away as I'm too affectionate to them ... gift for my 40th birthday )
Side Surrounds : Old B&W 602 (still made in england ... over 10 years old ) still sounding great
Tops : 6 golden ear super sat 3

could you please advice me which configuration would yield the best results and how to properly setup L and R to get the best phantom center image I can?
for example ... should I select the "Trinnov 9.1.6" and then remove speakers ?
also where should I place all the speakers for best results ?

please do not suggest to but other things as I can't right now :-)

thanks for the help,

Ben

P.S. Of course I can post pictures of the room is that would help :-)

We are approaching the end of September. Hoping for the dts-x pro update in the near future. Can't wait to test it out on dts-x titles. For now, I am limiting movie viewing to just atmos tracks.

Yes and pre-Optimizer.

It means to adjust your master volume level for that particular movie. For instance, my reference master volume level for my theater is -27. If BEQ says MV = -3, then I adjust my level to -30. Since you can't really save that in the Group EQ menu, I add it to the filter name to remind me i.e., "Atomic Blonde (+1.5)".

Depending on who you believe, the room will determine as much as 50% of the audio quality (or more!), so if you can provide the room dimensions, location of your seating position, and also some indication of percentages of soft/hard surface areas (or better still, how much acoustic panelling you have in place) that would be a good place to start.
