I have new XPA-3 on its way and have a question about "syncing" my volume control levels with my current amp (all system details listed below). I have Audyssey MultEQ XT32 and can obviously bump DB's by channel but I am wondering what is the best way. White noise and volume by channel adjust? Anyway, any input would be great and thank you in advance!
System: Marantz 7702MKII Processor B & K 200.7 will no be powering side and back surrounds XPA-3-L,C,R Channels Def Tech Mythos ST-L front right and left Def Tech 8080HD Center (4) Def Tech 8080SR surrounds Sunfire Signature True Subwoofer Also running dual sub-outs with one to the Sunfire and one with a splitter to the Mythos built-in subs that have 1200 watt amps.
Lastly, do you think I will notice a dramatic difference in sound, separation or anything of the such? Not that I was unhappy before but like us all always looking to improve the sound!! Thank you!
Just re-run the AVR setup & Audyssey. Def Tech Mythos ST-L.
Definitive Technology speakers are generally a easy load and easy to drive. Integrating the speakers subs and any other dedicated subwoofer (LFE .1) may be a problem, and using a suitable crossover point.
Definitive Technology usually lie when it comes to frequency response though. I doubt they go down to 14hz. I'd double that number as my pair of Definitive Technology surround speakers with dual 5.25" ported woofers state they go down to 40hz, which is a complete rubbish, I'd say probably 80hz lowest, they have been tested in mags to around 80-120hz.
Most Processors or AVRs have provisions for setting levels per channel and usually involves a tone or tones the calibration picks up and the processor/AVR'so take care of it for you through the auto calibration scheme they may have. Or you could use the tone generator to set levels yourself using your level meter to match, and set your levels.
