Yes, I am. Well, I ran Audyssey again, right to the end. It took six measurements. The four Monitor 70s are now crossed over at 40 HZ and the RTi A1 surrounds are at 50 HZ, and the center CS2ii is at 40. I have lost wherever it was that I set the subwoofer crossover, but I shall find it again, and set it at 120 HZ when I find it. I am happier this time with what Audyssey did, so it must be because I let it run it's full course. It does sound better than the first time I did it. The sound is fuller. I also found my lost volume :clap: The volume selector for Absolute or Relative was on Absolute, which cut me off at a max of 90 - not real loud. Now it is on Relative (THX) and I do not wish to turn it beyond 0 db. Music is good at 32 db and I think movies will be fine at 20 db just like my NAD was. At 32 I am getting SPL meter readings in the neighborhood of 82 to 87 db from all the normals, and the sub is coming in at 78. This is on a speaker setting for music of all channel stereo. I have yet to do a bluray movie test. I am very optimistic. You guys are doing for me in less than a day what I have been working on for over a week. I have to tell you though, that manual is written in some other language than English, I'm telling you.Are you connected via LFE out of the receiver to the sub...the one RCA connection?
Yeah, made a lot of sense. Yes I am running same size towers in all four corners. I will try them at 60 HZ, as Audyssey put them at 40. I will probably raise the center to 80HZ instead of the 40 that Audyssey put it at, and the surrounds to 80 instead of the 50 they are at. My ears will let me know how this works for me. I still need to find that subwoofer setting and I know it is there, as I found it before. Back into the manual for that, I guess. You may get tired of hearing thank you, but I won't get tired of saying it, to all of you guys here. Osage Winter, Fokakis1 and Tonyvdb being the three I have (met?) You guys kinda scare me with your experience and knowledge. I am not used to being a know nothing, or almost nothing. As I mentioned before, I have always had audio/video equipment, and even good equipment, but I never tried to wring better out of it. It is confusing, but very satisfying when something improves.Hello Viking, and glad I could be of help once more...
Did that make any sense? :coocoo:
Because my wife said I could!Oh, okay...I'm running the predecessor to those, the RTi12s...:T
Why did you feel a need to upgrade the A9s?
Will your receiver drive your speakers ? Yes . Would your speakers benefit from external amplification ? Yes , Keep in mind that the manufacturer states 95W , 2 channel driven more speakers you had to the chain it will take more power to feed them .I currently have a denon 2113 (95 watts/channel) and am wondering if either of the rti8 or rti12 towers would be able to be done justice with this receiver? This system would be in a multi-use living room of ~4500 cubic feet, but not used at reference level. In facIt, the AVR rarely exceeds -20db. Usage would be 80% TV/movies and 20% internet radio/mp3. Thanks for any help!
Well depending what you listen just a tad of bass might suit a lot of ppl , the 12's/9's deliver a excellent amount of bass when well powered but of course this is a personal choice and there's a lot of tweaking that can be done .Yes, I was afraid that the lack of external amplification might be a problem with the polks, I currently have 2 BIC FH6-LCRs being powered,but have a case of the "what-ifs" and am wondering if I would benefit from something else. I did forget yo mention that I do have 2SVs PB-1000 subwoofers, so music would not need to dig quite as deep as a pure 2-channel system.
I am in a similar situation as you, running an Onkyo 605 with 90 watts a channel which feeds RTi12s (and the rest of my speaker layout); take all these speaker power ratings with a grain of salt. I have NO -- absolutely NO -- issues driving my RTi12s with my Onkyo but there are a lot of factors that come into play...are you using a sub, what will your RTi8s or RTi12s be crossed over at, etc.I currently have a denon 2113 (95 watts/channel) and am wondering if either of the rti8 or rti12 towers would be able to be done justice with this receiver?
