Sorry had to download the manual for your amp as I have the onkyo 876 (love it to bits). Audyssey looks very similiar although it offers DSX which I am a bit unsure about. But the main Multi Eq etc.... is the same all be it it looks like you can do 8 positions where as I can only do 6.

Do you have any graphs off your conquest in room?
I don't. I've never played with REW or any kind of sound measurements for that matter. I'm new to this.

Re: Need advise with creating Epik Conquest clone

The more I review your thread, the more I'm loving this setup. Any options of something like this with a more powerful sub?

Hi Bob,

You will be surprised how much difference it makes if you have the subwoofer in the right location. For all you could know at a certain frequency you may have a null. Right lets start again if you don't mind. Do you have some photos off your room where the sub is located.

Also I would take some time to read up on this side of the forum to get some ground info on the Room EQ Wizard program to get some basic information on how it works and the benefits are had from using it.

http://www.hometheatershack.com/forums/rew-forum/

In this forum you can go through the guides on what equipment you need etc..

I can help you with this with what ever questions you have but it is good for you to read up on it because believe me the benefits are massive.

Understanding how you EQ your sub is a big major factor in your system.

cheers

Graham

How wide is your room? That picture was before I got my son's haircut. LOL

Here is a pic of the back of the room:

Let me know if there is anything else you need.

My room is 17 feet by 17 feet wide. Would you be looking at a single driver sub or two?

Well, seeing how I already have the Conquest, I think one more 18" sub to keep the conquest company would be ideal unless you have a better idea. I am at your mercy

Are you flexible on ports, i.e- do they have to match the conquest or are you flexible?
