What seems odd, is the top left M22 was too quiet during Audyssey, compared to the other speakers, about half volume. I swapped it with the center and it sounds normal now. I stood in front of it during just to see if it was quieter, but it wasn't. Not sure what the problem was. Not an out of phase issue. I checked for that first.

Someone suggested I stuff a sock (or something) in the ports of the 3 upper M22's to dampen the bass. You know that's such a stupid sounding idea, but it just might work. I'll have to give it a go, then recalibrate, and see how it sounds.

So far, I'm liking the results of Pioneer's MCACC a whole lot better then Denon's Audyssey. It always sounded good with MCACC, not so with Audyssey, so far, but maybe I've gone beyond Audyssey's (and MCACC's) ability to handle it with my particular speaker arrangement. The funny part is, when I turn Audyssey off, I couldn't hear a difference.

Were they being that specific? Or did they just say "Stuff a sock in it" and you assumed they were talking about your sub port? grin

CatBrat, don't just add any old sock too block the ports, but rather use knee high ones because it has more material to work with. Oh and make sure it's a dirty sock as well, it will help to lesson air filtration through the pores of the the sock. grin

Cat, the install looks really nice. The black/silver against red looks sweet.

I still think you're overdoing it on the fronts, but hell, if it makes you happy, more power to you.

Before it always sounded like all the dialog was coming from under the TV. Not it sounds like it's coming from the TV. Plus, I've got my wall of sound effect back. Much less localized. Just pure sound, and it can easily do it loud.

Edit: Concerning bass, I forgot to mention earlier that I have L/C/R set to small, and the cross over set to 80.

That is one major setup Cat. Nice to see it all has finally come together. You certainly worked hard at it.

For the amount of speakers you have there, it looks pretty damn orderly. smile Are you considering getting the bottom M22s up off the floor so so their tweeters are at the same height as the VP160?
