guess that is not going to work, the stupid test tones in the AviaII disk cycle to fast from speaker to speaker and it is nearly impossible to keep up with the Denon on which speaker and deal with the Denon's timeout. argggggg

I have another setup cd I'll try now...

Is each tone a different track? What I usually do with DVE is set the track on repeat until I'm done with each channel. I so look forward to doing this again with a new sub...

It shows a picture of a room and cycles through all the speakers one at a time about every 5 seconds. So as it cycles, you have to keep hitting the button on the Denon remote to keep up with the speaker your on. It does not give you enough time to finish each speaker, so it is like a merry go round, very frustrating. Then the Denon times out if you don't keep adjusting the levels up/down, so you start back on the LF, but if the software is on the Rear surround your out of synch.

Sorry, this really pisses me off.

I"m back to using the Denon and trying different locations on the 600 away from the corner, but having similar problems. I think the problem is this dang Denon. There is no reason I should have to be at -11dB with the 600 on MIN and the lowest SPL I can achieve is like 75dB's no lower. This screws up the calibration for the other subs/speakers. I have to crank the 350's almost to MAX, and my surrounds are on +12 (the highest it can go and other speakers about +7.

I know I'm going on and on, but this should be easier than this.

That's a stupid calibration disk.

Randy, Did you not have the 600 hooked up to the denon before?

Yes, I always have used the Denon. The 600 was placed near the front left corner. I think I've always been running the 600 hotter than should be done, as I was usually around 7 o'clock with the receiver on about -6dB's. I'm sure I was exceeding 80dB's with the pink noise then...

I've called Axiom tonight and will receive a follow up call tomorrow night.

You can download test tones and burn your own cd and put the player on repeat for the track you want.

Your Denon should have it's own test tones built in. At least mine does. I had the same frustration with the Avia disk for the sub but the Denon sub tone stays on until you turn it off.

I also had a weird, still unexplained, issue with the Avia sub tone where it freaked out my meter and it kept jumping up and down by up to 10 db. I am aware that the disk cycles between sub only and sub plus a speaker to check for phase but this happened continually during the sub only part.

I thought maybe I was running too hot or something but using the Denon's test tone resulted in a smooth, even reading that I was able to calibrate with.

Murph, I think he is having problems calibrating his 4 subs and wanted to try it with a different test tone than what is built into the receiver.
