Hi there I have a Marantz SR-7010 receiver and I added the following speakers: Floor standing Klipsch RP-280f Center Klipsch Rp-450c Subwoofer Klipsch R-112SW I run the marantz audyssey setup and then went manually to touch the central speaker and raise it up 5db more. Im quite happy with the movie dialogs they sound crystal clear but I need to still tweak the subwoofer a little more. I want a more tight punch. My speakers are set to small and the crossovers are: Rp-280f says fullband central 40hz and then in the sub config its LFE 120hz (at the back of the sub I have the auto OFF, phase to 0 and gain around 3/4db. that according to audyssey its 75db) Any hint in how to configure correclty this set up for a tighter punch. Room size is 20 square meters approx. If you need any other detail let me know, thanks a lot
Hello all, long time lurker, great forum. Thumbs up to @Youthman love your videos. I recently upgraded my front stage, and sub. I picked up an SVS SB2000, RP-250C, and RP-150M. SVS Sub replaced an Energy ESW-8 from the take classic line, huge difference here!!! RP-250C replaced Pioneer Andrew Jones SP-C22 sounds better, a bit cleaner. RP-150M replaced Pioneer Andrew Jones SP-BS22A-LR not as big of a difference here, sounds good though. Still have Pioneer SP-FS51 for surrounds. Thinking about replacing those with something like R-14 TV is an LG 60UH8500 wife and I still enjoy 3D, and this was the last 4k, hdr, 3D tv I could find. I'm running a Denon x1300 and have ran Audyssey a few times, for some reason it sets the fronts and center to 40hz... and sets all of the levels to low - I'm gong to run it again here in a few and will post pics of the results. Now I'm looking to get the RP-140SA to go on top of the RP-150m since I replaced the existing atmos speakers. I currently have the old SP-BS22A-LR on top of the RP-150's and I don't get much of an effect with atmos content, even the demos using the atmos app on xbox one x. 8' ceilings, flat ceilings, sit 9-10' from tv. The tops of the RP-150m are at 28 inches. Anyone have any thoughts on the RP-140SA I've been looking around and trying to find a good deal on them... hard to find apparently. Not sure why these speakers cost so as much as they do compared to other speakers in the RP line. If anyone knows where to get a deal on some of these please let me know, Old ones still sound good even though I'm not getting a lot of overhead effects, I still think it fills it out a bit. I will be selling the Pioneers as I obviously don't want to keep those on top like they currently are. Here is a pic of new setup. Just ran Audyssey and here are the results. Anything look off? Figured I would post pics so I can refer back to it, and easier than typing it all out. Usually I set all speakers to 80hz, but not sure on these klipsch. I only ran 6 passes, is this enough? The 7th wants to place the mic behind the couch, but the couch is pretty much up against the back wall.
I did a full MCACC Pro calibration after properly placing all speakers (5.1 setup), the Pioneer AV receiver detected surround sound speakers (RP-250S) as a large tower speaker ! Should I keep the setting for these surround speakers Large as calibrated or change it to Small manually? I know the RP-250S is strong and has deep bass. Need your opinions
SOLD Selling my Avia II Guide to Home Theater Calibration Disk with Color Filters for $15.00 shipped. Ovation Multimedia Avia II HDTV Calibration DVD All-inclusive tutorial and home theater calibration tool in NTSC format More than 200 test patterns to achieve superior video quality Nearly 100 audio tones for 5.1 and 6.1 channels, plus Dolby TrueHD and Dolby Digital Plus Basic / advanced signals allow the user to select the pattern or tone needed Tutorials on various home theater components, speaker types, connections, and more The disc is structured into multiple chapters of tutorial and setup information, followed by a chapter filled with advanced video and audio test signals. A bonus section contains a video montage of down-converted high-definition live-action material selected for critical evaluation of screen setup. Basic Test Patterns The basic video test signals can be used without test equipment and require only the use of color filters, which are supplied. While, ideally, an inexpensive sound-lever meter should be used with many of the audio test signals, in most systems you can get by using just your ears as the test instrument. Easy-to-navigate menu access is provided to all signals and instructional materials. Avia II Advanced Video Test Patterns Containing a generous subset of the exhaustive set of video setup, calibration, and evaluation signals from Ovation Multimedia`s Avia Pro, the Avia II Advanced Video Test Pattern section contains most of the Avia Pro patterns that can be usefully utilized without video test equipment. Special emphasis was placed on evaluating and adjusting widescreen and newer technology, fixed panel display technologies such as LCD, DLP, LCOS, SXRD, and Plasma. Newly introduced from the first Avia disc are motion tests, including several for player/screen behavior with mixed progressive/interlaced signals and for color-wheel artifacts with color-sequential displays (mainly DLP). Gamma, an extremely important charactersitic for flat-panel technologies, can be estimated by Avia II tests. Reference Level Accuracy and Resolution Like the signals in Avia Pro, AVIA II achieves reference-quality signal accuracy by starting as directly digitally generated 480P 2/3 pull-down, 4:4:4 test signals in native widescreen DVD resolution. This avoided any signal level shifts or resolution changes which might have occurred with analog signal acquisition or HDTV downconversion. The pattern masters were compressed with custom MPEG2 encoders whose signal accuracy and quality were optimized through close collaboration between Ovation and the encoder manufacturer. One Size Doesn`t Fit All Sometimes, commonly available test patterns are not ideal. AVIA II includes variations of patterns to allow selection of one just right for the job. Traditional color-bar adjustment, for instance, are often hampered in consumer sets by screen overscan. The primary color-bars test pattern in Avia II is windowboxed so that no color bar is cut off or partially visible. And instead of only being able to check black level stability at one APL, the AVIA II user can select the APL using the freeze frame capabilities of a DVD player.
