The room is 2400 cubic ft open to a bedroom and stairs leading to my upstairs behind it I moved the subs around a bit more and was able to get the curve way flatter as well messing with the variable phase settings but I lost about 7dbs across the entire range does that mean I should turn the subs up a bit more to gain some of those lost dbs back it was showing 101dbs at refrence volume or is that all the subs can put out
I would have to see the REW files for the individual subs and then the combined FRs to make an assessment. You can send them to [email protected]
if you want me to take a closer look or post them here. But the earlier thumbnail wouldn't open for some reason.
The max output of the subwoofer is dictated by the strength of the input signal from the source. Even though the AVR was set to 'reference level' (which would be 82 dB or 0 dB depending on the volume scale) - that doesn't necessarily mean the upstream signal source being sent to the AVR input has the equivalent of a 0 dBFS encoding level (most likely it is far below that).
