So... are you happy with your ruler flat response? Do hear a difference that you would consider worth the cost?

I haven't had the chance to do a lot of back and forth between having it on versus off. The bass does seem nice and neutral, but yeah, I need to spend more time comparing.

Looks like people have already forgotten that we don't use "ruler flat" around on this forum. Instead, you should say:

But, Peter, doesn't that somehow nullify the "biga$$" effect sought in bass reproduction?

Yeah, I'd have a really nice flat subwoofer, but without any speakers my system might be a little bass heavy.

As a reminder, here's the old graph which shows what the two EP800s with the older amps were doing:



Today, I have the single EP800 with the new amp in it, and here's how it looks:



I'm not really sure why the output drops off so much sooner than before. The new amp is at the 150 Hz crossover setting just like the old amps were. What do you guys think?

I also wish the Audyssey processing didn't sacrifice the little extra bit out of output at the lowest frequencies. After calibration, the bass does sound very even and clean, and the thunder in Kung Fu Panda was very satisfying, but I'm still tempted to bump the sub trim up in the Integra.

I'm going to guess that the new amp isn't actually extending as high as it's supposed to. There's no crossover in effect except the subwoofer's own crossover setting when I'm running the AS-EQ1's setup. Can anyone else with a new amp confirm this? I still don't like the way the dial for the crossover setting moves. I'd like cleaner-feeling clicks when turning to different crossover points.

CV I don't know what you are trying to ask. I don't find the dial movement when changing crossovers is a problem. I can tell when it hits a certain point. What is your reason for having a clicking sound? I have no way to measure how high the frequency goes with my amps so I'm not able to help there.
Paint me confused which isn't hard
