I looked at your posts and there is something I don't understand. In the first post, where you show the REW measurement you are using as input to the EQ tool, the measurement doesn't look anything like the "before" measurements you show in later posts. For example, the later posts show a huge peak at 30Hz, yet the measurement in the EQ tool looks relatively flat.Thank you & AustinJerry for all of your help so far!
Audyssey should definitely be off. The objective of the exercise is to measure the un-corrected response of the sub, use the measurement as input to the EQ tool, and then load the filters into the 2x4. Then take a second measurement of the sub only to assess how well the filters have improved the sub response. Next, re-run the Audyssey calibration so that Audyssey takes into consideration the improved sub response in its calculations. And finally, measure the sub after Audyssey completes to make the final assessment of how well the whole exercise worked.Looks like I mistakenly posted the entire frequency range instead of just the sub response. Thanks for pointing that out.
Should Audyssey be turned off while setting up the minidsp?
Should I only have the subs on? I have been doing it with all speakers on & Audyssey.
Directly from the 2x4 manual:Quick question on the balanced 2x4. Making my cable to go from the two rca subwoofer outputs on my AVR, to the Phoenix connector on the 2x4.
I stripped off one end of this stereo pair and I have a shield wire along with the + & -. On the Phoenix connector, can I just hook the shield wire into the "S"? Or do I snip this shield wire and run the red/black into the pos/neg, and run a jumper from the Neg to the "S"?
From the same page of the 2x4 user guide:OK, now for the outputs. I have an XLR cable. Took off the appropriate end to wire into the Phoenix connector.
Like the last question on the RCA cable, what about wiring the XLR? Is it the same way where I just cut off the shield cable and use a jumper? Or do I use the shield wire to connect to the "S" slot?
And which wire would be used for the positive?
I have both the input and the output set to 2V. The 2x4 sees a maximum of 2.2V coming from my MiniDSP 88A, and the measured output to my sub amps is .6V, which is plenty to drive the subs to the desired output level.I have the Mini DSP 2X4 Balanced. On page 3.2.5 Input sensitivity which one should I select? I use Crest pro 9200 and pro 8200 amps. My processor is the Marantz 7702mkii. Thanks in advance.
