Guys, I need some help or an explanation what's going on with my Audyssey calibration with my 4300. I ran the full calibration and when I checked the results I was satisfied. I have three subs, 2 on the #1
preout and the third on preout #2
. My levels came beack at -10.5 dB for subs 1 and -10.5 dB for sub 2. I was happy with this as this gave me a lot of room to adjust the levels up, I like to run my subs about 5-6dB hot, so that would put the levels at -6.5 dB.
I manually checked the levels that Audy set for my speakers and subs with the test tones and MV at 0 dB with a SPL meter. The speaker levels were maybe 2 dB low, that's not a problem. The problem is when I checked the sub levels at MV 0 dB they were 8-9 dB low for the front pair #1
preout and the same for the single #2
preout. At MV 0 dB I had to set the sub levels from -10.5 dB to 0 dB to get 75 dB at the MLP. Could someone tell me what's up with this. Do I have to have a certain setting set for the subs prior to running Audy, I didn't think this would matter because all setting will change once I run the XT32 calibration.
Question: Can I just raise the gains on my subs leaving the -10.5 dB levels set by Audy until my SPL meter reads 75 dB at the MLP for the front two (sub 1) and the single (sub 2) with the MV at 0 dB? Should I just rerun the full calibration again, I'm just concerned that the same problem will occur again. Thanks and looking forward to your replies?
