  1. My Seatons have a similar function. It's usually recommended to run Audyssey with the dial set to Medium, and move it to Large if you want to add a House Curve (rising response under ~40Hz) after running Audyssey If you run Audyssey with it set to Large you will probably have a rising low-end response (due to added room gain) - which most people prefer over dead flat, Audyssey will then use filters to flatten this out
  2. Wow ...some very nice drivers in these too, looks like ScanSpeak Illuminator woofers, with Seas Excel tweeters (?)
  3. Looking very nice in there mate Good choice on the Martin Logan speakers and sub, the Balanced Force 210 are nice units Am I correct in assuming the ML's are used for Home Theatre , and the Osborn Interlude's are for Stereo/2 chan only?
  4. These are not music tracks,but these will really test your subs and whole system, they are recorded by Tom Danley Danley Sound Labs I really like the "Fireworks Finale Short" and "train starting up" tracks Here is the warning on the site https://www.danleysoundlabs.com/tom-danleys-mic-recordings/
  5. No mate, leave the distance setting as is (unless you have a calibrated measurement system to verify that the AVR got it wrong). The distance with subs can be affected by the plate amp having DSP,High-pass filters etc built in - all of which can add milliseconds of delay. So I'd leave the distance as is The " -10 to -6" range is referring to the subwoofer trim level (volume in the AVR) you want it the negatives - ie. aim for a post-Audyssey Subwoofer trim of around -8dB (negative 8dB)
  6. Yes the gai Yeah mate, the gain/volume dial on the subwoofer. It's a balancing act, I just run the first 1-3 measuring positions of Audyssey and save the calibration and check the Subwoofer trim level, aiming for around -10 to -6 range. You may have to run this a few times, just keep adding or subtracting small amounts to the sub's gain dial till you get in this range. After you have it set up correctly you shouldn't need to touch the gain dial again , all adjustments can be performed via the AVR in the "Speaker Levels" menu
  7. No worries, I had the Concept 20s when they first came out and absolutely loved them (should have kept them for bedroom setup!) A VERY easy to listen to speaker Bet this all matching setup would be outstanding for Blu-ray concerts! I noticed a huge difference when moving to matching speakers all round.
  8. This! x 2 ^^^ turn the gain up on the subwoofer and re-run Audyssey as you are likely clipping the signal Even if this isn't causing the problem, it's a good idea, ideally you want to be well into the negatives (but under your maximum which should be -12) I aim for around -10dB sub trim post Audyssey, which gives me some room to add to the subs when needed, - while still staying in the negatives. I personally wouldn't recommend going above -3dB *edit* should have read the whole thread,sounds like you're on the right track!
  9. I have 3 x Seaton SubMersives, easily the best sub I've ever heard, and they can output THX Reference Level bass to under 10Hz in my room.They are awesome! But the wait times are looooong and after sales service does leave a bit to be desired. That said I would still buy again. If going Seaton you probably won't get the Master/Slave option unless you insist on it, as Mark appears to be steering more towards his new 2400w amp for 240V/International customers I'd recommend you take a hard look at the Rythmik Audio FV18, close in performance to the JTR 2400, tonnes of tuning options built in to the amp, and the cabinet has variable tuning options. They have great customer service and you should be able to easily land 2x of them under budget. If you're after sealed they also offer the F18. Both have been tested at data-Bass and did incredibly well https://data-bass.com/#/systems/5b328a70aacbc200043d2553?_k=yv8w24 https://data-bass.com/#/systems/5ad778f92d279a0004669a18?_k=w71lxk In Aus, I'd look at the PB16Ultra, or ask Paul (RSA) to build some dual opposed 18" subs using the Dayton Ultimax 18s I personally wouldn't consider the Krix subs if you're at all interested in deep bass (and not everyone is) They are probably good to 20-25Hz
  10. Oh yeah, an oldie but a goodie! Though not particularly "deep" bass, the drums at the start are great
  11. Mine are boring - I use 2 x of my Seaton SubMersive subwoofers as speaker stands - so just huge big black boxes A friend in the US had these custom beauties made
  12. I would go with the design shown in this video
