  1. Buying another ka-1000thx amp is not an option. I’ve already done the Audyssey cal and they sound ok to me. The output is not as much but I can manually adjust that. I will take the measurements with res over the weekend. I guess I’ll just sell the def tech sub and the minidsp HD. Again thanks everyone for your input.
  2. Thank you all for your responses. I use separate processor and amp (Marantz av7704 and an Onkyo power amp). I have been reading up about the process of calibrating subs using the minidsp and to my understanding, once you level match all subwoofers, you then proceed to take each sub’s measurements with the mic being in the main seating position. the problem I have with the thx ultra system is that the subs themselves are passive and they get one signal from the Klipsch ultra external amp. So one signal (rca cable) goes to the thx sub amp from the Marantz then the amp devides it between the two subs. edit*** the thx sub amp can only receive (input) a single lfe signal. It’s like a monoblock of sorts I can probably physically disconnect one sub while measuring the other but I don’t think that solves the problem.
  3. Hello everyone, I need some advice please... long story bare with me.... A few months ago I bought some Subs off a member here and when picking up he demo’d his system for me (7.3.4). Of the three subs, two were identical (which I bought) and one was bigger in size and power. I was Amazed as to how good his system sounded especially how ‘sweet’ the bass was. I obviously enquired how he got the three subs to gel so well- it sounded to me like the whole room was one big speaker(if that makes sense). Anyway, apart from room treatment he also explained how he had used the minidsp and umik 1 to calibrate the subs. At the time I was running one sub (Def tech reference) but with the two I got from him that day I thought I’d do the same and run three. And so I ordered a minidsp HD and a umik1 from Amazon. In the three weeks it took to receive the items, an opportunity presented itself to acquire a Klipsch thx ultra 2 7.2 system and I could not resist (I had always wanted this system). I then moved on my previous system including the two subs but I still have the def tech reference sub. now my questions are, since the two subs from the thx system are run by a single external amp, will it benefit using the minidsp? If so, how do I go about it, I’m thinking this would be equivalent to using the minidsp to calibrate a single sub?(it’s a bit confusing) is it worth adding the reference sub to the system to run three subs? Note: to me the thx system by itself sound good if there’s no benefit from the above questions I’d be happy to move on the minidsp/umik1 plus the def tech reference sub. I’m still very new with the whole minidsp thing so please be kind. Any advice appreciated. Thanks.
  4. Further information: I picked up a Marantz pre-amp here on SNA yesterday so this has to go. I’ve been using it as a processor with an external amp (as you can see in the rear photo) so most of the inbuilt amplifiers have barely been used. Has only been powering height speakers. pros great condition- no scratches or dints everything works as it should. Cons I can’t find the calibration mic and the angle measurement tools that came with it. I do however have an older type ypao mic that I can throw in. i don’t have the original box but I can pack it securely for shipping. Happy to ship at buyer’s expense and risk. ***Apologies for the bad photos*** I’ll make a donation once sold.

  5. And I will take the three KDX If shipping to 3810 is an option.
  6. I will be next in line for local pickup over the weekend please.
