Thanks Richard, indeed, I agree. I have assigned these in Bass Management:
L C R crossover to subs at 100hz
LS, RS, LRS and RRS are all the same speakers and crossover at 100hz
LTF, RTF, LTR, RTR, OH are all in ceiling and I cross them over at 150hz but redirect them to the following:
LTF crossover at 150hz to the Front L channel and then from 100hz goes to all the 6 subs
RTF crossover at 150hz to the Front R channel and then from 100hz goes to all the 6 subs
LTR crossover at 150hz to the LS and LRS channel and then from 100hz goes to all the 6 subs
RTR crossover at 150hz to the RS and RRS channel and then from 100hz goes to all the 6 subs
OH crossover at 150hz to the LS, RS , LRS and RRS channel and then from 100hz goes to all the 6 subs
LH, CH and RH crossover to the FL, FR and C channel at 120hz and then from there on the all the 6 subs.
I need to re watch the webinar on bass management to make sure I am doing this correctly but it sounds fantastic so far
Any tips and recommendations are much appreciated
Also on another note. Whilst I setup my Umik 1 mic for REW measures, I decided to use the SPL meter feature in REW to check the gain for all the channels and adjust if required. If I am not mistaken this is to be adjusted in the Processor > Output menu?
The way I did this was I went to the Output Menu on my AL, I mute every available channel including all the subs, then go into the room setup menu and press the pink noise generator button for every channel including the subs (bare in mind all the speakers are muted on the Output menu so nothing can be heard) . I then go back into the Output menu under Processor and unmute each channel at a time whilst checking the SPL meter in REW to match 75db and adjust the output gain one by one, muting the speaker I have just completed and moving onto the next one.
Once all complete, I save to a new pre-set in the output menu. I then go back to the room setup menu and uncheck the pink noise generator for all the channels, return to the Output menu and unmute every channel before actually saving the settings in the Pre set I am in.
I hope the above makes sense but I found this method a very easy way of doing things. It may have been easier to play the pink noise from the Input menu but after the usual 7.1.4 the remaining speakers do not show in the Input Menu as far as I can remember hence why I chose the room setup menu to play the pink noise tones. I hope this helps others when level matching each speaker
The AL16 and 32 does an amazing job and usually very accurate but I did notice some were out for me by a couple of db's here and there so made some adjustments and saved them to the pre set.
