Re: left right and center setup questions

Setting then to large might be ok if your just doing 2ch but most speakers in a 5.1 setup even if they are pretty good are still set to small with a sub, imo of course

Re: left right and center setup questions

I returned my receiver to the store and they sent it to the repair center and said they would call me. I will play around with the small settings when I get that taken care of. I had it working before.

Re: left right and center setup questions

Tonight I set my speakers to small and the subwoofer went from 70dB to 64dB and the other speaker levels did not change... Does that sound right?

Re: left right and center setup questions

Was that with pink noise? Doesn't sound right, but I have never tried the switch and measured before or after.

Once you reset the levels did it sound better?

This was with the limited bandwidth pink noise on the HD-DVD side of DVE.

Not much. I would describe the sound like this similar to setting in the front row of a really large commercial theater with no subwoofer. I did some other things that seemed to help. I used the full bandwidth pink noise for the other speakers and set the levels to 75dB. This was -6dB on the channels except for the subwoofer. So far I have done all this with my SPL meter at C weighting and uncorrected. Not much of this sounds right to me. I like the thing that pans around the room with the levels really fast it reminds me of being at the ocean.

I noticed this before when I was calibrating the system with DVE (non HD disc) ... the full bandwidth is louder than the limited ... so, everytime I move something and I need to re-calibrate I use the full bandwidth only ...
