Hi ! Noob question from a very recent owner of a second sub .... Interested in getting the best out of the beasts with REW (never dove in yet, that's will be fun), how do you set the AVM60 to measure and treat the subs only ? Thanks !Yes I thought of that, my only concern there is that it may screw up the crossover and phase. We shall see.
Today I moved the subs to the front of the room for better response, dialed them in with REW eq and they sounded thunderous, brutal and very tight. Ran ARC and immediately they have lost that really nice and precise punch I dialed in via the miniDSP.
I think it might be something to do with phase/time alignment as when checking in REW before and after ARC the phase looks very different, there is one or max two phase shifts before and many after and this seems ot translate to the less precise not as tight response. I am quite certain ARC is trying to time align the subs to the mains and that is where it goes wrong. Adjusting the sub distance helps but I can never get it as tight as without having ARC on and dips around the xover points are larger. that all points to phase issues which I don't seem to be able to control with ARC on.
