You really should read the Audyssey FAQ on avsforum. It has step by step instructions to ensure optimum calibration.

Jake - yah, not surprised by the QS8s as they are a bit low and probably muffled a bit by the couch. I'm sure placing them higher would help with lowering the crossover and would probably also help with providing a better surround field above and behind me.

A little surprised by the VP150. I have it aimed to the listening position but now that it is higher due to the TV I might have to play around with its placement/angle.


I'm not sure if I'll be using the VP180 - now that I've physically seen it, the thing is huge and heavy. I put it up on the shelf and it seems to support it but I'm not comfortable leaving it until I figure out a way to better support it (see other thread).

What version of amp in the EP500 doesn't have the 100Hz brick wall filter? I did have my amp replaced last year due to a broken volume knob and the amp does show 150Hz as the highest crossover. Does this suggest I have the latest version of the amp and it should be capable of playing up to 120Hz?

Thanks for the help. So far I seem to be enjoying what Audyssey is doing. My sub feels better integrated and I'm enjoying DynamicEQ. Still playing with it though...

BTW - yes, I have gone through the Audyssey thread/faq/setup guide on AVS (as well as batpigs Denon site). But there's lots of information to digest and I've only run Audyssey once. I'm sure I'll be reading and re-running Audyssey a few times to become better acquainted with it. Thanks for the suggestion!

I'm pretty sure you have close to the latest version. It was only the original with the 100Hz filter, I think.

I have an 1100 sqft room and sit 7' from the front... Audyssey surprised me with

M22s: Small / 40hz
QS8s: Small / 90hz

I mean my M22s are close to the wall (3" ish) but 40hz? I don't think so. I bumped the M22s up to 80 and the QS8s to 100. Overall though, I'm happy with Audyssey's effect in my room.

By, you might be surprised. As I've reported several times, in my setup the M22s have significantly lower, but still usable, response around 40Hz. You might try listening to 40Hz on a test-tone CD or other source of tones. In your smaller room with closer spacing to the wall it's entirely possible that room gain would result in an increased 40Hz level. For example, if your longest room dimension is 12', one aspect of room gain begins at 565Hz/12=47Hz.

The Audyssey measurement I got suggested 60Hz, but nevertheless I manually raised it to 80Hz to give my EP500 more to do and the M22s less.

Enjoy the music, not the equipment.

Hey John:

That would explain why I was able to go so long without a sub... You may be right. I'll do some listening tests this weekend.

Thanks
