Hi there

I am new here but find it very interesting that you measured with REW what Audyssey did. Well, this is my first post here and I actually registered to download REW bur I will show you the output of my Audyssey Pro measurement, whereas I don't know whether this is true what is shown or not.
I will find out soon, when I have installed REW and checked the measurement.

This measurement was done with my screen in front of the LCR. Therefore the decrease of the curve in the high area.
I hope this works here, doing it the first time.:sweat:

Thank you for you understanding and greetings from Germany.

Thank you and yes, it has improved dramatically, I would say. Currently I am very happy but it was some kind of a fight to convince Onkyo and Audyssey that there is something wrong with the Audyssey implementation in the Onkyo PR-SC5509 which equivalent is some Integra DTR 9.x or so in the US.

However, with the introduction of Audyssey Pro and the latest firmware update in March, they fixed it. Great job and I was happy.
However, somehow these curves are too good to be true - don't you think so too? Therefore I downloaded REW 5 today and will check the Audyssey data. But I still have to wait a bit, because I found my built in sound card in my laptop is not good enough after calibrating it with REW. So I am waiting for a Tascam US 122 Mk II.
I will post the results here.

Cheers

Hi all,

Thought I would post my current results:

Denon 2112ci - Audyssey MultEQ XT
Mains - HTD Level 3 bookshelves circa 2001
Sub - SVS 20-39 PCi circa 2002

Left and Right Mains measured separately at the main seating position with a Galaxy CM-140 SPL meter using the generic calibration file from this site.

RED - Audyssey off
GREEN - Audyssey on
BLUE - Audyssey Flat on

PINK - Audyssey off
TURQUOISE - Audyssey on
GOLD - Audyssey Flat on

Hello Everyone!
How did you get your results?
As far as I know Audyssey works only on HDMI inputs and REW with USB interface
has analog audio outputs.
How do you connect your measurement systems?

Could you please help me with this?
I use REW to test room acoustic, but I would also like to
check my Audyssey calibrations.

Dont want to start a new thread for this question. Does Audyssey change levels for the speakers so that when the volume is at 0 they are at reference?

I am wondering because after I used Multi EQ it changed my levels to -2db on L/R and -9.5db on my sub. Just wondering why it changed them to that level as opposed to another level that would still have the speakers balanced.

I realize this thread is pretty much dead but my latest subwoofer measurements are below. Taken with REW and a UMIK-1 calibrated from CSL. MultiEQ XT seems to do a pretty good job. You can also see the effects of dynamic EQ at this SPL level. I have noticed that Audyssey applies gains and cuts and will also adjust the overall sub level. It also seems to increase THD significantly (as measured by REW). Maybe all eq does, not sure. Sounds great nonetheless!

Not sure if this is the place to post this. Im very new to the whole REW thing, just got my UMIK1 mic and set it up on a Macbook. I measured at the main listening position, but have no idea how good (read bad) the graph is that i ended up with. This is after running Audyssey on my Marantz SR6008. I have an SVS 12NSD in my living room, so there are no room treatments etc, its just a regular rectangular shaped room.

Any input/advice/comments would be greatly appreciated. Oh yeah this is my first post :wave:

Still working on the 41 Hz suckout, but subs placement possibilities are limited, so it's phase, distance, volume settings and direction only :/. I like the sound though, which is kind of what matters. DynEQ is on, -10 dB reference level offset. Target settings with hard knee house curve and 1,5 dB/octave rolloff @ 1 kHz snap 15.jpg

Here's our current graph.

Two Rythmik FV15HPs attached to a Denon AVR4520CI using XT32/SubEQ HT room correction software. Each subwoofer is equipped with a PEQ that allows each sub to separately EQ a particular frequency or bandwidth. One subwoofer is placed directly behind the MLP and one is placed on the opposite wall across from the MLP.

Let me know how solve it. I have a 60Hz hole unless I open one of the double doors which moves the hole to 50Hz. Go figure :rolleyes:
Usually it's caused by a two reflections (primary and secondary) running into each other. And usually, the offending wall is the one directly behind the MLP.

Where is the door located that changes your null from 60Hz to 50Hz and what happens when both doors are opened?

Offending wall is 10 ft behind MLP (see photos). Both doors open creates large nulls at 60Hz & 80Hz. I am holding off posting REW plots until I measure the Audyssey results.

It looks like the receding wall angles on the double door area are what's causing your room fits. From your image, it's looks like you have an angle on the wall of the equipment rack and then at the door.

What happens when you place a Depth i below the equipment rack?
