  1. Hello there. I have two subs. what is the proper cabibration technique? Calibrate each one to to have the same SPL with the other one off at the same seating area? When I do that, it seems that the sub closest to the seat (my secondary sub) does most of the work. The last time I calibrated, I turned off the secondary sub and set the level to +5dB with the main sub. I then turned on the secondary sub and turned it up till I got +6dB. It seems to work nicely that way. Also, what level are others running at? As previously stated, I have mine +6dB from all of my other speakers. Kaz
  2. Great. the places I have the subs now helped quite a bit, it is even across my seating area, which is most important. SO my room is 15X30 and there is nothing I can do about that. My wife, however is telling me that we need an addition to the house. If we do this, the system will go in it. When I do this, where do I go to get recommendations on wall sizes and cieling heights for HTs? Is there a guide of some sort? Or just call the EAR? Thanks again, guys. Kaz
  3. When we started last night, running the sub test tone from my integra, i had 77db, 75db, 74dB, 73dB in the seats, going from right (closest to subs) to left (furthest from subs). Moving the cylinder sub from the back right corner to the front left of the tv gave me 2dB more. Moving the cylinder to the middle of the room did nothing, moving the cylinder to the back left corner helped, but not as much as it was in the front left. We then move the box sub (PB12 Ultra 2) into the front left spot next to the TV and began moving the cylinder around the room to find the best spot. The best spot was the cylinder in the same spot it was originally (back right) with the box sub to the left of the TV. We were getting aunifom 79 dB in every seat. Just for fun, I brought my sub from the garage (NHT) and put it in the front right corner. With that on, we got 82dB in the middle seat. When listening to music at loud volumes, however, it sounded better with that sub off. (Maybe this is because that sub is nothing in commparison?) We still have not tried the NHT in the back left corner. The adjacent 13X20 area is actually open to the kids play room (17X15) and the laundry room (10x10) and between those two rooms is the stairwell going up. We played a A-B spot of 20sec looping from a very heavy bass section in the Bee Movie. The bass response in the stair well was sick. I guess all the air that is pressurized in the basement is forced up the stairwell ShouId I get another CS ultra and put it in the front right corner or the back left corner, or just stop here? Kaz
  4. Thanks. Will report back tomorrow.
  5. Thank you. I will play with the subs tonight and see what happens. Changing the size is imposible, as im in a basement! I have considered putting the tv on the 17 foot wall but the support beam in the middle of the room would kill me. As it would be against the back of the HT seating. Is there any reason to believe that this issue would be less if i roted the theater 90 degrees? Finally, as I will move the sub along the front wall, is there any magic number as to where? The Integra manual says that 1/3 the distance of that wall is a good spot, but is that 1/3 of 15 or 1/3 of 30? Thanks again. Kaz
  6. Ear-- Sorry, im confused and your recomendations are going to be difficut as the PB12Utra 2 weighs 200lbs. You are recommending that I move the PB12ultra 2 (currently in the front right corner) along the front wall twards the middle of the room? Possibly to the left side of the tv? I can also move the CS ultra (currently in the back right corner) to the middle of the back wall, to the left of the book case. Is your idea that I need to get the subs closer to the center of the room? Will there be any benefit to moving a sub to the center of the SIDE wall? SEE ATTACHED PDF thanks kaz 20080317082457501.pdf
  7. Here is my issue. I have a large basement room 30x15. I am using half of it about 15x15 for my HT. I have Chorurs IIs, academy, and 4 heresy IIs for surround. All driven by rotel amps. The room has a cement floor. I want bass you can feel. I have a SVS PB ultra 2 in the front right corner and a SVS CS ultra (driven by a carver 1.5) in the back corner. I just bought a Integra 9.8 in hopes that the audssey would help on the lack of bass ( It did, a bit) Last night I had people over and the kids were watching the Bee movie while the adults were upstairs having drinks. There were a couple of times that (upstairs) i thought the house was going to come off the foundation. I went downstairs and noted the passages in the movie. Later on, I replayed the passages while I was down stairs. Decent bass, but quite frankly there is quite a bit more upstairs. I am considering another sub, but I think I have plenty since the house is literally moving. HELP! My friend thinks i should put 2x4s on the concrete, then tounge-in-groove plywood covered with carpet. He says that this will allow the room to move. He blames the whole mess on the concrete. Has anyone else been in my boat? Thanks Ken Ka
  8. Here it is, is not to scale, as the heresys on the sides are more centered with respect to the chairs.

  10. I will draw it up and scan it. The long wall is actually 30 and the short wall is actually 20 with a 7 ft ceiling. The HT is 17x20 and the related room is 13X20 but they are actually one big room. there is a support beam in the middle of the room at the 13/17 point, effectively dividing the room.

  12. I cant belive I asked the VP of engineering if he thought he has a moral responsibility to show heritage klipsch to everyone he sold Bose to...... Thanks again. It was alot of fun to meet you guys. Kaz
  13. yea, i guess i was a bit over anxious when I wrote that thread really looking forward to seeing the development areas. I am an engineering manager in a different field, should be cool to see your set of toys. See you next friday kaz
