Yes, but where do you set your receivers main volume when running the tones? The built in tones, lock the volume at "0" and then you just adjust each channel up/down 12dB's?

Wouldn't you put all your speaker levels at 0 and start from the front left and increase the master volume until the 75db mark is achieved? Then go through the rest of the speakers using the individual settings to match the 75db level while leaving the master volume alone?

I believe the test tones are preset in each receiver for either 75 db or 80 db when it says 0, it is just a reference point.

So the reference point can be what ever you want. Start at the usual LF adjust receiver volume to have LF speaker at 75 db and 0 on the speaker level and then continue from there, just as HAY said.

I think his life might be easier if he just sent me the EP600 then he only has to deal with the dual 350s.

Hey Jakeman,

In using the discwasher setup audio tones, it says to adjust the subwoofer levels so they are 3dB higher than the other speakers in the room you just calibrated? I know you normally go 3dB below? It says if this setup requires you to adjust the subwoofer to a maximum gain, then it says to rerun the other speakers again but approximatley 3dB's lower, then rerun the sub?

Looks like the discwasher worked better for me than using the Denon pink noise. I calibrated all my speakers to 80dB's, then calibrated each sub to 75dB's one at a time. Once they are all working togethor they are hitting about 81-2dBs. My Denon SW level is on -8dB, the 600 gain is about 7 o'clock, and the 350's are about 2 o'clock. I hope I finally have it all setup correctly. \:\)

Randy, all they are saying is to set the subs +3db for more LFE. Set it where you like. I like to set all the subs to the speaker level then raise sub levels to taste depending on the movie. That way I know where to find reference levels for the subs. If you want to start at +3db or +5db that is fine as well as long as you know your initial setting from calibrated speaker reference. My main concern is to make sure you have enough play in adjusting trim in both directions.
