Tony, thanks very much for the files and instructions.

If all of the bass targets are put on the flash drive, how will the 972 know which one we want?

Anything the matter with putting only the one we want on the flash drive?
It can not distinguish. You need to unpack them all and only put the single file you want on the flash drive.

Will these curves only apply to the Spatial modes? Reason I ask is in my case the bass is very good when Spatial is not engaged.
That is odd. If Trinnov is engaged, bass response should be the same in all spatial modes.

I have a feeling I need to ensure levels are similar between the speakers first, and then remeasure The sub seems pretty hot at the moment. I have to crack open my ole Radio Shack meter.

Re: Sherwood/Newcastle R-972 Official Thread

The bass filters affect the subwoofer output, only. The names were chosen arbitrarily. The "Flat" curve has 3 dB less output than the curve labeled "+3" and 6 dB less output than the curve labeled "+6". It is not necessarily more accurate in your room than the other 2 curves. David Rich insisted that the +6 curve was flat in his room. I thought the "Flat" curve sounded best in Sherwood's listening/conference room. It could be that we are both correct. However, as Dr. Rich has not only academic credentials but science on his side, I now use the +6 dB curve in my home theater.

Re: Sherwood/Newcastle R-972 Official Thread

Hi (please excuse my errors and confusion - I'm both a newbie and using a foreign language)
I have a quick question on the r972 room2 control; with:
1. a 5.1 set-up
2. the room 2 line-out connected to another amp -which will remain at a fixed level-
3. nothing connected to the room 2 speakers,
does the room 2 volume control have any effect?

i.e. is the room 2 line-out variable or fixed?

-thank you

It's variable.

Reran Trinnov 3 times with the SHO-10's, same result. Looks like Trinnov may have issues with high sensitivity speakers. Audyssey Multi EQ has the same issues.

I did dial down the subs to within 1 dB of the mains during calibration, still get the humming at high volumes.

Switched to the TCA WAF-1's, -6 dB point is 71 Hz for both L/R speakers. Bass is non existent no matter which speakers I use, the LFE output is ridiculously low. I have to crank my sub amp gain up ridiculously high to compensate. The only way to get satisfactory bass is to set the Spatial Mode to "None", Room EQ to "Flat".

$84 in shipping fees as well as a 15% restocking fee if I return this. Major bummer.
