Re: Audyssey Graphs - Please post your results!

Here is my REW graph with some manual EQ:

Audyssey Graphs - Please post your results!-manualeq.jpg

Now with Audyssey Dynamic EQ (all other parameters are identical):

And the two overlayed:

Audyssey Graphs - Please post your results!-dyn-man-eq.jpg

Audyssey in this case is MultEQ on an Onkyo TX-NR807
BFD Filters were applied to smooth the Manual EQ FR and were kept in place for the Audyssey FR graph.

Re: Audyssey Graphs - Please post your results!

Hi,

When it was engaging Audyssey autosetup in onkyo 906, all channels were being calibrated. How to calibrate subwoofer channel only in Audyssey autosetup? It seems that the calibrated effect of other channels except subwoofer is not that good in my untreated room.

Thanks

Re: Audyssey Graphs - Please post your results!

With Audyssey, it is all or nothing I'm afraid. There is no option to EQ just the sub. I'm not up on the different Audyssey options on the Onkyo, but on the Denon units, you can select "Bypass L/R" which defeats the EQ for the L/R channels and corrects the Center and Surrounds to sound like the L/R channels, while also keeping the sub EQ. This is as close as you can get to what you are looking for.

What don't you like about the sound? Sometimes poor sounding results are the effect of improper measurement technique. Please describe how you took the measurements.

Can't do sub only in the avr, you want the svs unit.

You may be seeing comb filtering between the front speakers giving you more variation in the joint measurement than either speaker has itself. I was confused by some of my Audyssey curves, until I began measuring the left and right channel separately.

You can also try taking measurements across all the points you used during Audyssey setup to define the Audyssey bubble.

I just follow the manuel to place the supplied mic at 3 listerning positions due to limited space.

It sounds dull after calibration. I turn off the EQ and it sounds lively but the bass does not sound good.

Try redoing the Audyssey set-up, but this time instead of pointing the tip of the microphone straight up, tilt it slightly away from the front speakers. This may help restore the perceived high frequency loss.

Cant you just unplug the speakers so the system only detects the sub woofer, thereby fooling it into only eq'ing the sub. I dont have surrounds so I know there is no issue on that front, but I suppose how it reacts to no fronts will make the difference. It costs nothing to try though.

Have you tried this Dan as it may work, but I think if it is in an AVR then it will just give you an error message and ask you to do it again?
