Thanks for the replies. I definitely understand the value of an REW setup -- just haven't invested the time or money to do it yet.

I didn't realize Audyssey did a poor job around the crossover...

What's going on around my crossover freq?

Did some basic measurements with the Hsu bass disc test tones and my Radio Shack meter. I got some very curious results that I wanted your thoughts on.

First, my setup. I've got dual VTF-3's (a Mk...

After running your auto-cal did you go into the menus and verify that all speakers were set to small with at least an 80Hz (or higher) crossover? If not you need to do that...

Thoughts on my dual VTF-3 measurements?

I did a simple measurement of my subs using the Hsu CD test tones. Ran through them three times -- left sub only, right sub only, and both subs together.

The left sub is a Mk III set to Max...

I haven't measured it. Since I don't have too many options in the room I'm not going to bother trying different locations and measuring the results. I was just curious to hear feedback on having...

Elevated sub - yes or no?

Recently moved to a new house and, due to space and layout constraints, I currently have one of my subs sitting on my entertainment center. I have to say it sounds pretty decent -- no rattles,...

Thanks Dr Hsu! Quick question -- can the feet easily be removed from the VTF? If so would there be any detrimental effects? I'd like to lower each sub a little bit so the tops are flush with the...

Actually each sub is equidistant from a corner so I don't think it's corner gain. I did gain match them before moving them into place. Either one of the volume knobs got changed by mistake, or it...

My dual VTF-3 placement

I keep experimenting with placement / orientation of my VTF-4 Mk III and IV. I'd originally had them all the way in the front corners, but then moved them next to my entertainment center (inboard of...

That makes sense. So then, let's assume worst-case that one room corner is "louder" than the other. If I gain-match, then one sub will end up louder than the other right? Seems like both...

Does max output mode give a flatter overall response above 20 Hz?

Just ordered my 2nd VTF-3 and so I'm thinking about whether to run the pair in Max Extension or Max Output modes. I've been running my single VTF-3 Mk III in ME mode and love it, so I was planning...

Running 150 Hz crossover -- any drawbacks?

I have Paradigm Studio 10's as my main speakers and a Hsu VTF-3 Mk III. They're quite small and therefore don't put out much bass. I even sometimes think they're a little thin in the lower...
